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.
When I think of an Aston Martin, I think of flowing lines, timeless elegance and the highest quality craftsmanship. Bespoke coachwork. Brogue interior detailing that would make you feel guilty for sitting in and dirtying up. And sneakers. I definitely think sneakers, too.
Aston Martins are known for being timeless and achingly beautiful grand tourers. You’ll find most of them with their engines in their noses. But now there’s talk of a mid-engined Aston coming to slay Ferraris? We’re gobsmacked.
Whatever you give Red Bull Formula One drivers Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo to drive, they’ll race it—even if it’s a pair of Aston Martin convertibles towing flimsy wooden camper trailers.

Aston Martin just picked up three “super hangars” in Wales from the Ministry of Defense, and to properly break in their new property, the supercar company unleashed 28 of the finest automobiles it has ever built to do some high-quality hoonage. Prepare your eyes and minds for beauty.
We’ve seen “airplane-inspired” special editions before. Usually they have a new paint job to look like an old-timey World War II plane, it’s photographed in front of another plane, and that’s it. Everyone calls it a day. Not Aston Martin. With the Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows edition, Aston Martin went nuts.…
