The 2010 Aston Martin DB9 coupe and Volante roadster continue into the new model year with relatively few changes.

The latest generation of the legendary sports car made famous both on the world's race tracks and on the silver screen as James Bond's ride of choice in the 1960s made its debut in 2005, as the replacement for the former DB7 Vantage.

The rear-drive DB9 is constructed as an aluminum-bonded unibody that's lighter than a conventional steel-bodied sportscar of the same size might be. Aston also say that makes it more rigid, for greater agility and ride comfort.A 450-horsepower V-12 engine is claimed to be able to reach a top speed of 180 mph, and it can be mated to either a six-speed-manual transmission or a ZF-supplied automatic gearbox that can either operate in fully automatic mode or be taken through the gears manually via push-button controls and employs so-called "shift-by-wire" operation. The DB9 rides on an independent double-wishbone suspension system and large 19-inch wheels and tires, which should translate into tenacious cornering abilities.
