About the Aston Martin DB9
The Aston Martin DB9 is a modern interpretation of a traditional Aston Martin sports car, representing a contemporary version of classic DB design elements and characteristics. In true Aston Martin tradition, the DB9 reflects the company’s reputation for superb styling and continues a long history of beautiful sports cars. Key traditional Aston Martin features incorporated into the DB9 include the distinctive grille, side strakes and clean, crisp, uncluttered lines.
Aston Martins are not edgy cars - they don't have sharp surfaces or pronounced power domes. The bodywork is elegant and gently curved, with the side profile being very clean, with a single-sweep roofline. There is a pronounced boot - a noticeable feature of the DB4 and DB5 - and the haunches on the rear wings are wide and curvaceous.A great deal of time was spent on detailing,. In particular, focus was placed on cutting down fuss. There are very few cut or shut lines. Each of the headlamps is set in a single aperture in the front wing.
There is no separate nose cone, another typical source of sports car design fussiness. The aluminum bonnet runs all the way to the leading edge of the car. This accentuates the length of the bonnet and the power of the car, all front cut lines emanate from the grille.
