2013 Aston Martin Vanquish

We wrote about the announcement of the new Vanquish a few months ago and now Aston Martin has seen fit to release a whole bunch of stylish photographs of this beautiful machine. The company has also released behind-the-scenes videos of the shoot itself plus a video of the vehicle on the move.  Read More

Aston Martin has officially taken the wraps off of its latest Sports GT car, the 2013 Aston Martin DB9. Taking its styling cues from the now discontinued Aston Martin Virage and aimed squarely at the GT market, the 2013 DB9 is now available in both two-door coupe and Volante versions.  Read More

Evanta Motor Co. has breathed new life into the Aston Martin classic DBR1 with a stunning ...

Britain's Evanta Motor Co. has paid tribute to the iconic Aston Martin DBR1 with a unique replica of the 1959 Le Mans winning vehicle. This isn't your average replica though - the parts are laid out on a gigantic AirFix-style frame that measures 6.35 meters (20.8 ft) wide and 3.30 meters (10.8 ft) tall.  Read More

Aston Martin Vantage V12 Roadster

The stuffing of a very large engine into the front of a compact car body has always been a recipe for automotive desirability. If the chassis can actually handle the power and weight while maintaining stability and poise then motoring nirvana beckons. Add the option of a stowable roof to allow sunbathing, sightseeing, and posing in equal measure and you surely have a winner. The only question that remains is why it took Aston Martin so long to launch this obvious extension to the range.  Read More

The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power drew big crowds who enjoyed three days of speed, power, ...

The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power (CPoP) turned on its annual kaleidoscope of horsepower, adrenalin and engineering intrigue this week. The four wheel lap record was shattered by a Caterham, the BAC Mono was the fastest road car, while the cars running against the clock included an Ariel Atom 500 V8, Radical SR3 SL, Aston Martin One-77 and Noble M600. There was a Volkswagen "Schwimmwagen" amphibian, an Edison-Puton Monowheel, and a curious BMW built during WWI using a 45.8-liter V12 BMW aircraft engine. The gallery is a wonderful pictorial celebration of CPoP.  Read More

The Aston Martin Vanquish

The Vanquish name is to return to the Aston Martin stable with deliveries of the 183 mph, £190,000 (US$299,000) sports car expected in late 2012. There's a lot of the limited edition £1.2m One-77 supercar in the recipe, with a 565 bhp 6.0-liter V12 driving through a Touchtronic six-speed automatic gearbox, and 0-100 km/h acceleration in 4.1 seconds.  Read More

A high-tech computer system underpins the claim of 'most technologically advanced road bic...

The Aston Martin One-77 is the sports car maker's most advanced, expensive model ever. In fact, at times it's been the most expensive new car in the world. While the car itself has sold out, Aston Martin has teamed up with bicycle manufacturer Factor Bikes to offer buyers a two-wheeled version. Not just any bike would be fit to carry the name, and the parties call the One-77 "the world's most technologically advanced road bicycle ever."  Read More

The AM310 concept debuted at the Concorso d'Eleganza Ville d'Este

During the festivities of this past weekend's Concorso d'Eleganza Ville d'Este in Lake Como, Italy, Aston Martin introduced a new concept called the Project AM310. Unlike the superlative BMW Zagato Coupe, the AM310 is expected to serve as more than a one-off concept - it's reportedly a preview of the replacement for the DBS.  Read More

Yet another world auction record fell during the week when a 1991 Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato Sanction II Coupé was sold for GBP1.23 million (US$1.93). One of just four cars built 30 years after the first batch, the car was previously owned by singer Phil Collins' manager Tony Smith and had just 4,748 miles on the odometer.  Read More

The decked-out DBS Volante, Virage Coupe and V8 Vantage S Coupe on show in Beijing are part of the company's "Dragon 88" edition which will be limited to, you guessed it, 88 customized sports cars.  Read More
