Aston Martin Spy Shots

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.

    Spy Shots: 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante poses prettily in the snow
    1361288640

    We've seen the upcoming Aston Martin Vanquish Volante in spy photography before, but the car has never been shot while sitting so cooperatively still as it does for this latest set of images. Most of the bulky camouflage has been removed from the car's flanks in these images too, with masking really only apparent on the rear fascia of the supercar, and ...

    Spy Shots: Aston Martin Vanquish Volante spied in unlikely surroundings
    1360328460

    The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray might not be the only convertible dropping its top at the Geneva Motor Show. Based on these spy shots of the 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante caught almost camouflage-free doing some winter testing, we could easily see this model making its debut at next month's Swiss show. Like all current Aston Martin convertibles, the ...

    Spy Shots: Aston Martin Rapide S spotted testing
    1341770520

    In May 2011 our spy photographers caught this Aston Martin lapping the Nürburgring. Supposition at the time was that it is a faster, more powerful Rapide S that would offer up to 50 more horsepower under the hood and a tweaked grille and bumper so that you could pick it out of the line-up. The rumor remains the same, and the more powerful V12 engine ...

    Spy Shots: Aston Martin Vanquish goes for the gold on 'Ring as official info leaks out
    1340137680

    Details of the next supercar from Aston Martin have leaked out online. Based on previous reporting and subsequent spy shots, we already knew the machine would retake the Vanquish title and that its styling would be almost indiscernible from the marque's well-received AM 310 Concept. Based on the leaked official info, expect a full spate of carbon fiber ...

    Spy Shots: Aston Martin AM 310 Concept shows up in Italy... could it be the Vanquish? *UPDATE
    1339606860

    Aston Martin recently took a right-hand drive version of the company's AM 310 Concept for a spin in Italy. The coupe was on hand for a brief photo shoot, and sported a few different details from the model we saw debut at Villa d'Este. Marked by a more sane set of wheels and a more demure grille, this machine looks almost ready for production. Aston Martin ...

    Breaking: Aston Martin's DBS successor resurrects Vanquish moniker, with likely Pebble Beach debut
    1338768060

    A week ago, Aston Martin showed off the new AM310 concept at Villa d'Este. Now we know what the DBS replacement will be called when the production version arrives, thanks to the snoops at CAR magazine: Vanquish. The resurrected moniker, last used on the V12 GT flagship that Aston retired in 2007, is plainly visible on the decklid of the car shown above, ...

    Spy Shots: Aston Martin DBS/DB9 successor caught at the Ring preparing for Villa d'Este debut
    1337880660

    As much as it pains us to say it, the current core range from Aston Martin has grown a little stale. But fret not: a new model is just around the corner. Snapped undergoing testing at the Nürburgring in this latest batch of spy shots is what looks to be a new and nearly complete V12 GT from Gaydon. Code-named AM 310, it could be a successor to ...

    Spy Shots: Aston Martin DB9 successor caught romping in the snow
    1332790260

    Svelte as it still looks, the DB9 is getting a little long in the proverbial tooth – Aston Martin first launched the 2+2 way back in 2004. As such, it's high time the British purveyor of luxury GTs gear up to roll out a new model, and this is the best look we've had at it yet. Spied virtually undisguised while undergoing winter testing in the snow, ...

    Spy Shots: Aston Martin Rapide S undergoing testing on the 'Ring
    1306429200

    Word on the street is that Aston Martin is developing a faster, more powerful version of its Rapide four-door, a rumor fueled by new spy shots snapped on Germany's infamous Nürburgring. The camouflaged prototype pictured above appears to pack a revised front end and tail, with larger intakes up front and a lip spoiler and reshaped bumper around ...

    Spy Shots: Latest Aston Martin DBS prototypes suggest Rapide influence
    1287684060

    The last time we spied the Aston Martin DBS, it was fitted with headlamps similar to those on the four-door Rapide. Now, though, a new DBS prototype has been spotted running the 'Ring, and in addition to a change of headlamps, other visual modifications are on hand, as well. As opposed to the older prototypes, this latest DBS has a more sculpted lower ...

    Spy Shots: 'Ring-bound Aston Martin One-77 begs the question - Who is Dirty Shirley?
    1283905620

    If you're thinking, "This car looks familiar," it's because we've seen it before. The Aston Martin One-77 continues to tease us with its beauty, power and exclusivity, and our spies have caught the bronze test car out on the Nürburgring once again. This time, though, One-77 isn't its only name. Whoever Dirty Shirley is, she should be honored to ...

    1278115020

    Yeah, yeah. We know the Aston Martin One-77 has already shown its hips to the world, but our crack team of spy photographers have managed to lay their lenses on one of the super-exclusive Astons bumping around the Nurburgring. Even better, the megacar is dipped in a new color that we've yet to see. The deep metallic bronze paint is drop dead gorgeous, ...

    Our spy photographers have been busy little bees lately. The crew recently managed to set their lenses on what appears to be the next Aston Martin DBS, complete with a pretty new face. From what we can tell, the company has refreshed the V12 heathen with all-new body work from the A pillars forward. The car now wears a revised fascia with thinner ...

    A refreshed version of either the Aston Martin DB9 or DBS has been spotting working out at the Nurburgring, likely in preparation for a debut in Paris this September. Up front the lower fascia has been reshaped with a single wider lower opening while a pair of DBS-style air extractors are added to the hood. Both of those point to a bump in output, likely ...

    Spy Shots: Facelifted 2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster
    1271883420

    Or is that a V12 Vantage? Looking at the pics of this Aston Martin test car snapped by our crack team of spies, it's tough to say if we're looking at a refreshed V8-powered Vantage Roadster, or what might in fact be a V12 Vantage Roadster. Either way, we dig the new wheels. If you tiptoe through the gallery, you're sure to notice what's new. Namely, and ...

    Aston Martin announced its intent to race a lightly modified Rapide at this year's Nürburgring 24-hour race, and what has to happen before that? Testing. Here is the black beauty with slicks and perspex windows caught measuring its mettle on that very track before doing the real thing in May. The marque has taken class wins the last two years with ...

    Spy Shots: Aston Martin Cygnet tours the streets of London
    1266615120

    Plenty has been written about the Aston Martin Cygnet, and much of it has been less than enthusiastic. After all, how does one connect the dots between a tiny, efficient, low-performance city car and the British sporting brand's super high-performance models? Apparently, that would be with Aston's signature front fascia along with an interior swathed in the ...

    With Aston Martin busy releasing the Rapide, preparing the Cygnet city car, running the One-77 flat out, gearing up for a fresh assault on Le Mans and toying again with the whole Lagonda project, it's been a while since we've heard anything about the Vantage. The entry-level model in Aston's range received some upgrades for the 2010 model year, including ...

    Spy Shots: This is your Aston Martin Rapide

    A Car magazine reader has photographed the Aston Martin Rapide looking like it could have come off a dealer lot. The snapper also peeped the inside, which he said has a full-length console a la the Mercedes CLS to create four distinct seating positions. Aston has, however, said that those rear seats are for "children or two adults on shorter journeys." The ...

    REPORT: Spied Aston V12 Vantage Roadster actually a beefed-up V8
    1242305940

    If you saw the recent spy shots of a supposed upcoming Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster and wondered where all the louvers from the coupe went, the answer may be found in newer reports. Sources suggest that rather than a drop-top V12, the thinly-disguised test mule in question is actually a regular V8 Roadster, only wearing an extra body kit to give it a ...
