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.
It’s been a minute without these two on the front page.
I, unlike many Americans, enjoyed last year’s SPECTRE. I thought it felt very much like a campy late-Connery or Roger Moore James Bond film and it was fun when it wasn’t boring you to death. But then I found this 1990's Pepsi Max commercial, and now there’s no excuses.
Only one Aston Martin DB10 out of the 10 developed for last year’s Bond film, SPECTRE, will ever be made available for sale, and it just sold for $3.5 million at a charity auction—more than double its expected take. You missed your chance.
The latest Aston Martin DB11 seems to have something of a leak problem. First photos of the rear end trickled out, and now we get to see the front.
What’s up between Henrik Fisker and Aston Martin these days? Drama, man. Drama.
Look folks, it has been a great year for cars. From electric cars to all-aluminum pickup trucks, 2015 introduced something for everyone to be thankful for.
SPECTRE is the 24th James Bond movie, with Daniel Craig back as Bond and Sam Mendes, (in)famous for 2012’s Skyfall, back to direct what is ultimately the best possible result for a follow up film to the Daniel Craig era of James Bond. The trailers were wrong. This movie is so much fun.
Skyfall was the Bond movie that shattered audience expectations as well as box office records. Now director Sam Mendes is back to try and make lightning strike twice. Did he pull it off with Spectre? I saw the film last night, and I’m here with a few mildly spoiler-y thoughts before you go see it yourself this…
I lost count of just how many hours I spent on planes trying to get to where I needed to be to drive this car, but if Jaguar calls me again, I’m ready to fly to the moon and back for it, no problem. If it involves the Jaguar C-X75, the magical prototype supercar that stars in Spectre, I’m there.
Nine days. Nine days until SPECTRE, the 24th Bond film, is released stateside and we finally get to see the Aston Martin DB10, Jaguar C-X75, Land Rover Defender “Bigfoot” and the Range Rover Sport SVR in glorious action.
If there’s anything you’d like to know about decisions leading to the new Bond Aston’s final design, Jay Leno’s Garage will reveal everything about those too. Except for the gadgets. But there’s a nice bit of news buried in this video: the Vantage replacement will have a manual option.
To be fair, so can your car, and it doesn’t even have to be an Aston Martin. But it sure as hell won’t do it this gracefully.
With SPECTRE releasing worldwide in just over two months, 007 and Aston Martin are flaunting the star of the film, the Aston Martin DB10. Video-geniuses XCAR, as well as new Top Gear’s Chris Evans managed to get exclusive looks at the bespoke Bond car.
Being in SPECTRE is a huge deal for both Jaguar Land Rover and Aston Martin, and both companies did their best to supply the producers with the most amazing vehicles James Bond has ever seen. But they are for your eyes only.
As some of you may know, I have been busy for just about the last year keeping up with all the crazy automotive mayhem going on with the upcoming Bond film, SPECTRE. Well folks, this is what it has all been building to.
The next Aston Martin will go to 11! (Sorry.) The British company today announced their next sports car will be called the DB11. They didn’t add much else.
If you ask Jaguar, they say the C-X75 is still a no go. If you ask the people who actually designed and built the car, they say if anybody, Agent 007 just might be able to push it into production. Take your bets!
