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.…
Last week, the wonderfully talented Kurt Bradley and I got to go out to Circuit of The Americas and hang out with a few Aston Martin Vulcans. They put the V12 Vantages to shame on the front straightaway, and they were about as beautiful as a powerful, growling beast of a track car could ever hope to be.
Like many of you, I will often pass the time browsing CarMax listings to see what kind of questionable automotive purchases I could get with a MaxCare warranty. Sometimes some real gems will appear, and sometimes life plays cruel jokes on you.
If you’re cool (and rich) enough in Aston Martin’s book, you can get invited to purchase the limited edition faster toys they offer. We all saw the Vulcan launched in 2015 as a sign that Aston Martin wasn’t going to go all hybrid on us to achieve a proper track machine, and did so with over 800 horsepower from a…
We’re all familiar with the not-so-pleasant experience of buying a car in a dealer. When you feel ready to commit to that brand new Honda CR-V or shiny new DAF 600, you’re likely to deal with haggling, arrogance from your sales rep, no car on the lot with the options you want, plus endless hours of negotiation with…
Hey, Normal Moneyed Guy—do you like the Aston Martin Valkyrie, but aren’t made of that much money? Like, you’ve just got a nice pile, but you’re not Scrooge McDuck or a Middle Eastern sheikh? Fortunately, Aston Martin has your back: the Valkyrie is the first of several planned mid-engine Astons, aimed squarely at…
Aston Martin AMR, officially announced today at the Geneva Auto Show, will be the company’s new top-of-the-range trim for roadgoing cars. Sort of the equivalent of BMW’s M, Mercedes’ AMG, and Jaguar’s SVR. Aston Martin AMR Pro cars will be even hotter and built for track use only.
The Aston-Martin hypercar formerly known as AM-RB 001 finally has a name that doesn’t sound like R2-D2's love interest in the next Star Wars movie: Valkyrie.
Riding behind the 2017 Aston Martin DB11’s twin turbo V12 feels like having an elegantly stitched saddle on a sea monster. Under a hard charge, each shift is the crack of a forty-foot whip. Release the throttle and it’s a leather-lined pod of tranquility, a grand tourer that is truly grand.
The 2017 Aston Martin DB11 emerged one year ago exactly, and since then we’ve decided on only one thing: people sure do like to argue over the design. I’m finally driving it tomorrow and hanging out with the team that made it. Quick, get your questions in before I hit the road!
I know, I know: it looks like the Aston Martin is wearing lipstick, or is perhaps dressing up like a vampire for Halloween. But that’s nothing new, and the look is a lot more classy now than it was before.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Lately I’ve been depressed at the kind of future we’re heading into: cars that will drive themselves, simulated engine noises, the disappearance of rumbling V8s and natural aspiration, crossovers, climate change, fake news—it’s all going straight to shit, isn’t it?
An unwritten rule in car culture dictates that in order for a car to be truly remarkable, it has to have forgivable character flaws that give it a unique personality that allows man to truly bond with tamed machine. It is exactly those traits that make this car, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, the best used exotic car…
Let’s talk Aston Martins for a second. They’re beautiful cars, right? So they should be treated with the utmost care, right? We’re all in agreement. Did no one give the shipping company this information?
