The Aston Martin DBS is a gift that was received by the world back in the fall of 2007. Now, Aston Martin is trying to make sure that we aren’t going to become bored of one of our favorite toys, so it is working on a facelift for the vehicle, which will come to us in spring next year.

Aston Martin has decided to use a moderate approach in terms of styling, in order not to alter the vehicle’s stunning design. To be more precise, the revamped DBS will come with a new front skirt (you can see this on the spied prototype). The front end will also be fitted with redesigned headlights (that aren’t present on the test vehicle), which will borrow their design from those of the Rapide model. At the rear of the future DBS, we’ll be able to find a larger spoiler that will offer more downforce, making the vehicle more stable at high speeds.

The vehicle’s 5.9 liter V12 heart that pumps blood into the driver’s body by offering 517 hp is expected to remain unchanged or receive a set of minor modifications. The same goes for the interior, which isn't expected to be much different from the one of the current version of the DBS.

The list of novelties should also include new lightweight alloy rims and equipment packages that will offer an even more premium feeling.

Aston Martin is expected to unveil the facelifted DBS at next year’s Geneva Auto Show, with the car hitting dealerships after the event.
