2018 Aston Martin Vantage

December, 2017 § Leave a comment

The new “little brother” on Aston Martin’s family.  This Vantage try to bring the last James Bond’s car 2015 DB10 design to massive production.   The same proportions and narrow headlight shapes, but… not so beautiful, not at all.  Of course, it’s an Aston with the signature hill-climb grille. Even at the rear you can find a similar hill-climb line on the lights, perhaps the most interesting part of the car.

A 503-hp, 4.0 twin-turbo V8 engine built by AMG (Mercedes). Solving the Aston’s weak point during last decades.

Enjoy the pics, and decide…  Aston is leaving its elegant designs to try to get a little bit more racing like McLaren? Look at this launch color, Lime Essence contrasting polished carbon-fiber aero effects.

2017 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante

November, 2017 § Leave a comment

Take a nice V12 Aston Martin and give it one of the few coach-builders that can improve it… Zagato.  They’ve already done this in 2016, look one of the most beautiful Aston you ever seen here.  And now, the cabrio version… it’s not possible to choose which one is more gorgeous.

This is the fifth collaboration between both companies, enjoy the “shark” 2011 Aston Martin V12 Zagato or the 1961 Aston Martin DB4 by Zagato.

Recently sold for $22.5 million!  Nowadays the most expensive British automobile ever sold at auction.  It’s the first of five factory-built examples.  Legends like Carroll Shelby or Stirling Moss have raced with this iconic and gorgeous Aston Martin.

A new exciting design by Zagato, a gorgeous concept using a Vanquish. Zagato has been creating for this brand for at least five decades, some of them really nice like: 2011 Aston Martin V12 and 1961 Aston Martin DB4.

Enjoy the new design… I need one!!!

 

2016 Aston Martin DB11

June, 2016 § Leave a comment

A NEW Aston Martin. I mean not just a new design, it’s an all-new mass-produced Aston in more than a decade.  Also with a new V12 engine, welcome again Aston!

I really love 2015 DB10 design (from James Bond “Spectre” film). This DB11 seems a little bit uglier in every single view 😦    Probably the best view is the side one, a classic long hood with original silver strakes that flow uninterrupted from A- to C-pillar.

 

2015 Aston Martin Vulcan

February, 2015 § Leave a comment

Another new Aston on few days! This time with a bolder design, moving further from the classic grille massively copied by Ford.

Its an extreme limited-edition track-only car, only 24 Vulcans will be produced with a V12 engine with 7.0 liters and 800 horsepower.

I like the front fascia design, it remember me a little bit to the gorgeous italian DeTomaso Pantera.

2015 Aston Martin DB10

There is a lot of Ford Mondeo, Fusion, Fiesta even Ka! with the grille very similar to Aston Martin classical one.

Aston Martin needs to reinvent its design. They tried it in this DB10, with a new grille design, as its design director Marek Reichman says: “The grille doesn’t sit on the upper surface in any way. It’s all on a negative surface, like a shark’s face. The grille is all in shadow. There’s a darker feeling to the car.

I like this simple but sharp design of this new Aston, only built for the new 007 James Bond film.
