    First Drive: 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S [UPDATE]
    What Happens When A Restaurant Alters Your Favorite Dish? 1382025420

    A little more than two years ago, I called the 2011 Aston Martin V12 Vantage "an intoxicating machine masterfully engineered to gratify every emotion in a car enthusiast's soul."

    Report: Aston Martin still planning Lagonda revival
    1381775460

    What's in a name? Sometimes more than meets the eye. Take Aston Martin, for example. That may be the brand name under which it sells its high-end GT cars, but that's not the name of the company. No, its full name is Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd, and it doesn't intend to leave the second part of its ...

    Followup: Fewer than 150 Cygnet superminis sold before Aston clipped its wings
    1381321680

    The Aston Martin Cygnet wasn't exactly a hot seller during its two-year production run, which ended as of late last month. But despite British racing icon Sir Stirling Moss gifting one to his wife for her birthday, it seems that Britons didn't really care for it either: only 150 Cygnets were sold ...

    Report: Aston Martin Cygnet bumbles its way out of production
    1380551280

    According to a report in Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, the Aston Martin Cygnet has gone out of production. Although its name means "little swan," it never really got away from being the ugly-yet-seemingly-necessary duckling in the English automaker's lineup. Not for lack of trying, though, with ...

    1378846800

    Are you one of those jaded enthusiasts that think all of today's Aston Martin models look the same? Gorgeous though they may be, the brand's products and design language have gotten a bit, shall we say... familiar. Gorgeous, but familiar. The British marque's cupboards have been bare of all-new ...

    ETC: Aston Martin DBC Concept would be a gorgeous new direction for the brand
    1377646200

    The world may never see a mid-engine Aston Martin. Never, ever. Why? Because grand touring, which is and has always been what Aston Martin is about, goes about as well with a mid-engined layout as whiskey goes with wasabi. Why do you think Ferrari and Bentley, also notable GT manufacturers, keep ...

    Report: Two Ferrari-faking workshops busted in Spain [w/video]
    1376487000

    We sort of understand why the next door neighbor might indulge in a "Ferriero" project (a mid-engine Pontiac Fiero with homemade bodywork resembling a Ferrari), but we simply can't fathom why anybody would pay 40,000 euros for a fake Ferrari built from a front-engine, front-wheel-drive Toyota.

    Auctions: eBay Find of the Day: 1960 Aston DB4GT Zagato replica with supercharged DB7 engine
    1375972200

    For all of the attention to detail that went into this beautiful, custom-built 1960 DB4GT Zagato, it almost seems a shame to call the Aston Martin a "replica." But because it started out as a non-Zagato coupe (only twenty originals were built) and is now powered by a supercharged inline six ...
