You're best chance to outrun a villain in a 550-horsepower saloon

Aston Martin lent us their four-door supercar to experience in person. The $200,000 Rapide S is a vast improvement on the original Rapide, but how does it muster up to the competition? All images by James Elliot Bailey. High performance luxury sedans are hardly a rare beast; performance variants of executive saloons litter Beverly Hills [...]


As the black clouds gathered on the skies outside of New Orleans, we all stared warily at the darkening mass and waited for the inevitable clap to announce our anointment of rain. Instead, the only clap heard was the plangent wail of Aston Martin’s naturally aspirated V12 Vanquish engine shifting rapidly through gears, howling on [...]


Hot on the heels of the stunning, recently launched Vanquish, Aston Martin unveils their brand new supercar: the V12 Vantage S.

With really only Rolls-Royce hovering in its stratosphere (with possibly Aston Martin hanging around in the peripherals), Bentley [...]


Nicolas Stecher jumped in the Aston Martin DBS Volante Carbon Edition to find out why Mr. Bond loves his Astons so. With 510 horsepower and a 190 mph top speed growling forth from its 5.9-liter V-12, that should seem obvious. But despite — or perhaps, even because of — its many quirks, the car belongs [...]

Only 77 of world's most technologically advanced bicycle made

Aston Martin teams up with venerable British cycle builder Factor Bikes to craft a 2-wheeled ode to Aston’s halo vehicle: the highly exclusive One-77 hypercar. Taking their Factor001 cycle as the base for this automotive themed bike, Factor has increased the bike’s tech extensively, adding button-controlled LED lights imbedded into the seat tube, a “motorsport-derived [...]

The $233K droptop just like the Coupé... only not in the USA

After the recent announcements of its AM 310 Vanquish and DBS Ultimate, Aston Martin returns today with the unveiling of its latest supercar: the V12 Vantage Roadster. The Vantage Roadster is outfitted with the same 6.0-liter naturally-aspirated V12 engine found in the Vantage Coupé, which is just fine and dandy from this perspective: 510hp (380kW) and [...]
