    Video: Aston Martin unveils AM 310 concept at Villa d'Este
    1338300000

    Design language is a tricky thing. Err too much on one side and nobody will recognize your cars. Fall on the other and all your cars will look the same. Aston Martin, you might say, emerges more on the latter side than the former. Which isn't to say that we don't like how their high-end GTs look, ...

    Art Deco French dream machines to cross the auction block at Villa d'Este
    1302181260

    The Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic may be the most iconic of the Art Deco-era French teardrop coupes, but it isn't the only one.

    You can't make an omelet, or so the saying goes, without breaking some eggs.
