Spied: Aston Plans a Facelift, But Is this a DB9 or a DBS?

We’ll step back for a moment and let you be the judge. Motor Trend managed to capture an Aston Martin prototype being exercised on the hallowed Nürburgring — but are we looking at a revised DB9 or a DBS?

There’s some indication that this tester is the latter. The vented hood, tall side skirts, rear spoiler, and large rims are very reminiscent of the DBS — but at the same time, adding those parts to a DB9 would create a visual clone of James Bond’s latest ride.
Regardless, it appears Aston is working on a new nose for one — or both — of the DB cars. Although the nip/tuck is subtle, the new front fascia does visually tie the car to the smaller V12 Vantage, as well as a facelifted V8 Vantage that is currently in the works.
