Our spies have caught a facelifted Aston Martin DBS (or DB9) running around the Nürburgring.

While there's some debate as to what this model is (the company has been known to use mismatched parts to throw off spy photographers), we're leaning towards calling it an updated DBS. We're not 100% sure, but it seems doubtful Aston would turn the DB9 into a clone of the more expensive DBS.

So if this is a DBS, what can we expect? Not much, apparently. The only change appears to be a revised lower front bumper.

Under the hood, power will continue to be provided by a 6.0-liter V12 engine. It will likely continue to produce 510 hp (380 kW / 517 PS) and 570 Nm (420 ft-lb) of torque.

Regardless of what this model really is, look for an official unveiling at the Paris Motor Show.
