I recently set out to answer the age-old question that every car shopper must eventually ask himself: Why would I buy a brand-new Honda Odyssey when I could get a used Aston Martin for the same price?
A couple of weeks ago, I pissed off an entire nation of car enthusiasts. This was not my intent. I generally aim to make enthusiasts happy, regardless of their race, religion, age, or nationality, unless of course they are German. I am the federal anti-discrimination law of car journalists.
LeEco, the parent company behind Faraday Future and a giant technology company often referred to as the Chinese Netflix, has revealed a new fully electric luxury sedan called the LeSEE ahead of its Beijing Auto Show premiere which it hopes to go head-to-head against the Model S.
Aston Martin is done with the Vantage soon, so they’re going out with a track-ready, carbon fiber bang. With bodywork inspired by Aston’s Le Mans cars, carbon fiber everywhere and a 4.7-liter V8 that sounds amazing, it’s the perfect 8-cylinder Vantage—except that part about North America not getting it.
I recently had the opportunity to bring my Aston Martin to Washington, D.C. This involved spending two and a half hours on the interstate stuck behind people from Maryland going the speed limit in the left lane.
If you’re like any other semi-narcissistic person out there, you probably enjoy owning something desirable and expensive, if only for the virtue of its exclusivity. And if you’re a cheap-ass like me, you’ll enjoy that feeling even more if you don’t go broke chasing it. Thankfully, here are five automotive examples of…
It’s not often that I get out of my Aston Martin, I get into another car, and I want that other car more than I want my Aston Martin. Usually I get into my aging Range Rover and I wonder why the automatic windshield wipers are on high even though it hasn’t rained in three weeks.
Hell yea. Aston Martin’s V8 Vantage replacement will drop next year with a 4.0 liter V8 sourced from Mercedes-AMG and will definitely come with a manual transmission. Get out your best stationary and fancy-pants pen because we all owe Aston bespoke thank you letters.
When I first saw the vague sketch Aston Martin released of its new halo car during today’s partnering announcement with Red Bull F1, I had to stare at it for about ten minutes before I figured out which direction it was pointed. Then it was clear: we (may) have seen this before!
The last time an F1 mastermind made a car, we ended up with the McLaren F1. Now legendary Red Bull F1 designer Adrian Newey will make a road-going hypercar for Aston Martin.
There’s just something about climbing into an Aston Martin. The sight. The sound. The beauty. The fact that releasing the parking brake requires a long, detailed explanation.
The new Aston Martin DB11 made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show this past week after plenty of early photo leaks, and its look has been the source of a bit of debate. Some of us like it, some of us hate it—even amongst the Jalopnik staff. To ease the tension, let’s enjoy an Aston most of us can agree on: the DBS.
There’s a new Aston Martin DB! It goes to 11! Hilarious. We’re currently having an office debate over whether or not the new DB11 is pretty compared to the DB9, which is ridiculous because it is—just like the DB6 was still pretty when it followed the iconic DB5.
Over the past few years, we’ve heard rumors and finally confirmations that future Aston Martins would have AMG engines in them. And today they unveiled the new Aston Martin DB11 and it... doesn’t.
The 2011 concept version of the Aston Martin V12 Zagato sure was a cool car. I like it.
The 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 which lives under the hood of the new 2017 Aston Martin DB11 sounds like an exotic blend of burbles and symphonies. Just listen for yourself.
There seems to be some disagreement among your Jalopnik staff about the new Aston Martin DB11. I rather like it; I find it both elegant and muscular, modern and sexy, and a strong signifier of Aston’s heritage that also carries it into the future.
The 2017 Aston Martin DB11 officially debuts at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, but that’s not saying much. This is the latest of several image leaks, including a front-end photo just the other week. But unlike we’ve seen prior to now, the most recent crop of photos looks to be a set of factory images.
For a brief moment there, I felt like James Bond: drifting my Aston Martin with studded tires across a frozen lake. Then I remembered I wasn’t out there chasing down an evil villain or solving a serious crime that put the whole world in danger. I was following a part-time driving instructor named Paul, who was in a…
There have been rumors and reports for a while now that Aston Martin was going to build its DBX SUV in Alabama, because where else would you build an Aston Martin? Aston Martin’s CEO even called it an “obvious choice.” So, of course, Aston Martins are not going to be built in Alabama at all.
