Aston Martin Reviews

Aston Martin is a British manufacturer of luxury sports cars, based in Gaydon, Warwickshire. It was part of Ford Motor Company from 1994 until 2007 when 90-percent of the company was sold to a consortium of investors. In 2012, a 37.5-percent stake in the company was sold to an Italian private equity fund. To this day, Ford retains a small stake in Aston Martin.

    Squirrelling Away In Motown With British Royalty As far as unexpected encounters with wild animals go, squirrels don't normally rate. The furry little nut-smugglers are omnipresent fixtures in my neck of the woods – literally – so a chance meeting doesn't warrant caution the way a bear or even an ornery raccoon might. But one's list of ...

    Fresh Arrival Makes The Virage A Distant Memory My neighbor had been ignoring the various exotics and high-priced luxury cars parked in my driveway for many years – I should have expected that the DB9 would shatter the trend. The morning sun was glistening off the Aston Martin's metallic Volcano Red paint when she rolled by in her late-model Acura ...

    A Proper Argument for Ignoring the Performance Specifications Sheet Handcrafted in Gaydon, England, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster is a convertible variant of the fixed-roof V8 Vantage Coupe.

    We Bond With Gaydon's Gorgeous Tweener "You need to get in touch with Steven Ewing right away," said the instant message. It was from Autoblog editor-in-chief John Neff, and since fleet manager Ewing was online, I pinged him. "Hey, are you available to grab an Aston Martin Virage for the weekend?" he asked. "There's one in New York." Before answering, a ...

    Review: 2010 Aston Martin Rapide is a modern day Femme Fatale
    1278604680

    Do you like noir? No, not the perfume, the literary and film genre. You know, hard-boiled crooks, wise-cracking private eyes, Los Angeles under cover of night and blondes so blonde they'll kill you dead. Those blondes are, of course, are better known as femme fatales, and in truth, the color of their hair doesn't really matter. Think Theda Bera, Rita ...

    Review: Aston Martin DBS Carbon Black devours suns, spits them out
    1272902220

    We'll admit right now that we have never been completely taken with the Aston Martin DBS. It wasn't that we didn't like it – on the contrary, it's every bit the fabulous car. It's just that we found the DBS slightly... too much, in the same way you could have too much pampering or too much caviar. Even as you're finding the words to decline the ...

    Review: 2009 Aston Martin DB9 Volante makes getting away with it half all the fun

    Let's say a clandestine organization asked you, for your country, to "take care of" an enemy of the state at tonight's performance of Tosca at The Met. And let's say this organization gave you the choice of any Aston Martin in which to conduct the evening. Which Aston would you choose? If you said the DBS, we hope you've arranged bail. You're getting ...
