New sports pack for Aston Martin DB9 Coupe

Aston Martin will be offering the option of a factory fitted ‘sports pack’ for customers of its DB9 Coupe model from July.

The £2,495 pack includes revised suspension, a new alloy wheel design and a reduced ride height of 6mm.

The new five-spoke forged aluminium alloy wheels are lighter than the standard wheels, the springs and front anti-roll bar are modified and the ride height lowered.

The front anti-roll bar has been modified in the pack and the dampers have also been revised. Aston Martin said the new pack would ‘optimise body control and front-end grip without compromising ride quality or adding weight’.

The composite undertray is also replaced, by a load-bearing aluminium panel that performs the same function in managing underbody airflow while adding further structural stiffness, to resist larger lateral loads fed into the front of the car by the uprated front springs and anti-roll bar.
