English automaker Aston Martin
is working on a whole new generation of the DB9 which is expected to be the basis of a high-performance DBS supercar. The VH platform of the current DB9 is expected to carry-over with improvements made all around. The platform will reportedly be lighter in order to improve braking, handling, acceleration and fuel efficiency. Rumor has it that the DBS will be losing around 400 pounds with AM engineers looking at a 10-15 percent weight reduction.
