Renault will drop Red Bull as an F1 engine customer after 2018, reports Auto Motor und Sport. While that stoked fears that Red Bull might be saddled with Honda as their only engine option, Red Bull hinted to Sky Sports that they have “existing relationship” with a motor manufacturer who can hook them up in Renault’s…
Talk about going zero to 100: Aston Martin, which today has no hybrid cars, will go fully hybrid across the board by the mid-2020s. But I guess when you only offer about five models at a time, hybridizing all of them isn’t a huuuge task.
The British have always managed to pull off aggressive and stunningly stylish cars, and it seems they’re beginning to be appreciated in an all new light. Just a day after the first American-ized McLaren F1 became the most expensive British car ever sold, this 1956 Aston Martin DBR1 beat it out to claim the title for…
In good news that has kept getting better and better, the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Coupe and Volante convertible will now also be joined by a Speedster and Shooting Brake. If you strike gold, don’t stop mining.
Aside from its lovely makeup skills in performance trim, the 800-horsepower, $2.3-million Aston Martin Vulcan is actually quite fast at running laps around a racing circuit. Who would’ve thought, right? Here are some of those laps to remind you that you’ll probably never have enough money to make them.
As Aston Martin surges on into the controversial with the styling of its new DB11, Zagato has everybody else covered with a recent string of beautiful Vanquish redesigns in coupe and convertible form. And now it would seem there’s even a roadster variant.
Hello. This is the Aston Martin Valkyrie. It doesn’t have doors. It has a circular hatch, and I have no idea what anyone’s supposed to do with it.
Aston Martin has updated its insane V12 Valkyrie hypercar design with some new interior details and some body modification to make it even more aerodynamically efficient while adding even more downforce, and apparently the company isn’t even finished making changes.
The Aston Martin Valkyrie will be one of those über expensive race car toys that super rich people buy and then Instagram. You know the deal. You’re probably also familiar with the people who get in line to buy these kinds of cars first and then flip them for astronomically higher prices for profit. Aston Martin…
There’s been something on my mind for a few days now, and I need to pass the burden on. It isn’t fair for me to shoulder this alone. The Aston Martin Vulcan, the 800-horsepower, V12 track-only monster, has a new performance package to add even more track fury. It makes the car look like it has winged eyeliner.
The Aston Martin Vulcan is a wonderful machine, wonderful in that it is a gigantic seven-liter V12 track car built for no purpose other than to split Ferrari engineers’ eardrums. For some reason, Aston Martin gave it more wings.
If you really can’t stretch the $16,000 difference, Aston Martin has developed a second DB11 model with only a 4.0 liter V8 and a cheaper starting cost of just $198,995. Don’t feel bad, it’s still a thing of beauty.
Aston Martin has been teasing an electric version of its Rapide four-door sports car for years. Now, Aston’s original partner on the project—the deeply troubled LeEco—has backed out, but the RapidE will still get a limited production run of 155 cars set for sale in 2019.
A few months ago, Aston Martin and I got into a little tiff. I didn’t tell you about it because I didn’t want you to worry.
We’ve known the 2019 Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar was going to be an insane car for almost a year now, but the extent of the insanity was only know to those with the job titles or bank accounts to get close enough to it. But if this latest report is accurate, the Valkyrie will be properly insane.
Say you just bought a brand new Aston Martin DB11 and you’re suddenly a little hungry. What do you do? Do you need to spend what’s left of your budget eating at the finest, fanciest restaurants around, or can you slum it eating deliciously greasy french fries coated in gravy and cheese?
This year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans wasn’t just incredible for being unusually carnage-heavy on its flagship prototype class. The LM GTE Pro class full of production-based race cars was anybody’s game until the very end, with the most insane final laps I’ve seen all year.
If you’re going to lose your lead, at least do it in an amusing fashion. Despite the lack of drama left in the 24 Hours of Le Mans’ top LMP1 class, the LM GTE Pro class battle is as hotly contested as ever. No. 95 Aston Martin driver Richie Stanaway lost his lead, but gains my nomination for Almost-Save Of The Year.
Aston Martin has sunk unknowable amounts of money into its F1-car-for-the-road project, the Valkyrie. Nearly a full year ago the company first showed this car with bleeding-edge suspension, aerodynamics and hybrid drive. Now it has finally tackled the greatest engineering challenge of all: putting on headlights.
