Spy pictures show new front airdam being tested
14 June 2010

The Aston Martin DBS will be updated later this year - and the latest car updates have been spied testing at the Nürburgring.

This car is testing a new front airdam, part of an accessories list that will allow DBS owners to customise their cars. It could be available later this year.

Aston is testing at the 'Ring to make sure the new part works at high speeds. It mustn't adversely affect the lift on the front wheels or cut down the airflow to the engine rad and oil coolers.

The Vantage doesn't escape the tweaks, either. Aston has an internal project, called VH114, that's designed to upgrade both its entry-level model and the DB9/DBS to keep ahead of changes to legislation on everything from emissions to pedestrian impact protection.
