The Aston Martin V8 is like a classic muscle car that's filtered through luxurious, European styling. Petrolicious takes a look at one in its new video, while interviewing the father and son who share this cool coupe.
Aston Martin hasn't forgotten how to do things old-school, as evidenced by the new Vantage GT3 that packs its most powerful engine yet into its smallest model - revealed here at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
The next James Bond film is shooting at Blenheim Palace in England, and we get amateur video of the Aston Martin DB10 practicing maneuvers among lots of exotic cars. The production crew has also graced us with a behind-the-scenes short from shooting in Austrian mountain passes.
The Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12-Hour was run at Mt. Panorama this weekend, and race photographer and friend-of-Autoblog Joel Strickland sent us more than 100 photos of the action. The inspirations for just about every racing-derived exotic sports car was there, the top seven finishers coming from seven different makes, from Nissan to Lamborghini to McLaren.
Spied undergoing testing at the Nürburgring just a few months ago, Aston Martin has now confirmed via teaser video that a road-going Vantage GT3 is in the works, and is coming to the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Well, there's something to be said for timing. With the announcement that MI6 Agent James Bond would take the wheel of the all-new Aston Martin DB10 in his next film, Spectre, Xcar has taken a look back at 007's most iconic vehicle – the DB5. There's also something about some such special edition Vanquish, but it all kind of pales in the glory of the iconic DB5.
Arguably one of the most crucial operations of the second World War, Operation Mincemeat was a British disinformation mission responsible for misdirecting Axis forces towards Greece and Sardinia, and in turn, opening up the Italian island of Sicily. That led to the downfall of Italian dictator Benito Mussolini and opened up the soft underbelly of Hitler's Third Reich.
James Bond is inextricably linked with British motoring, especially Aston Martin, but the spy with a license to kill is missing one of his most famous cars. The original DB5 packed with gadgets for the movie Goldfinger has been lost for the last 17 years with no leads as to its whereabouts.
Aston Martin and tuxedos go together like gin and vermouth, but those looking for that extra degree of formality need look no further than the British automaker's Carbon editions. Aston has bestowed the blacked-out treatment on the Vantage, DB9 and DBS, and has now turned its attention to the flagship Vanquish.
