2017 Aston Martin DB4 GT Continuation

April, 2018 § Leave a comment

New and old at the same time.

Jaguar made six ‘continuation’ E-type Lightweights a few years ago now Aston is building an all-new batch of 25 DB4 GTs! Each costs £1.5m 😦

They we building from the digitally scan of eight original cars and from 450 original drawings.  Original suppliers have been used, for example Borani famous wire wheels is building it again because still had the tooling! Or the agreement with coachbuilder Touring of Milan, who designed the bodywork.

Thanks Aston! Love to see more gorgeous DB4 GT on the streets!

2017 Aston Martin Valkyrie

April, 2018 § Leave a comment

Aero genius Adrian Newey (from Red Bull F1) + Aston Martin = Valkyrie.

And incredible car with 1130 hp 6.5 liter V12 + electric motor. Only weight 1030-kg!  That means the Valkyrie is roughly 60 pounds lighter than the Mazda MX-5 Miata, with more power than a 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari!  10 seconds to go from 0 to 320km/h!

They’re only making 150, run if you have the money!

2017 Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake and Speedster

April, 2018 § Leave a comment

One of my favourite cars during the last years was the 2016 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato. After it we’ve known the 2017 Volante edition, another gorgeous beast! And now, using the same V12 529 hp, Zagato created a new modification of this incredible design: Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster and Shooting Brake.

Ok.. DB10 was great, DB11 promise to be a new era on Aston Martin design, but guys, let Zagato design all our bodies.  His pen and Aston heritage mix so good! We want more!

2017 Honda Sport EV Concept

If you loved Honda’s Urban EV Concept you’ll fall in love with the sportive sibling. A great proof of gorgeous design has not to mean 7 digits pricing, or electric car has not to be full of ugly complex futuristic lines.

A very low roof, long and a nice fastback. Nice B-pillar. Only a problem Honda has confirmed Urban EV goes into production, but no news about this Sport EV 😦

Gooding & Company’s will auction the very last Ford GT40 Mk. IV. The last of 12 GT40 chassis built by Ford for 1967. And when it was built, it was really just a chassis built as a spare for the cars Ford took to Le Mans. Now, it’s been completed, has a V8 525 hp… and it’s really nice!  Thanks to Mathieu Heurtault pictures!
