There’s a “cheaper” Aston Martin DB11, and it’s even more sporty

A "cheaper" Aston Martin DB11 sounds like a contradiction in terms, but a new twin-turbo V8 engine in the range does at least bring the sticker down a little. The new DB11 V8 may be smaller than the V12 with which the DB11 launched with in 2016, but that doesn't mean you're sacrificing too much on performance. In fact, the DB11 V8 will still do 0-62 mph in 4.0 seconds.

Aston Martin RapidE all-electric car gets green light for 2019

Aston Martin is joining the EV world, confirming that it will build an all-electric car, the Aston Martin RapidE. The car will, as the name suggests, be based on Aston Martin's existing four-door model, the Rapide.

The 2017 Aston Martin DB11 is unlike any other Gran Tourismo

The 2017 Aston Martin DB11 is unlike any other Gran Tourismo

It’s rare that a car stuns me into silence, but then again there are few cars quite like the new Aston Martin DB11. The storied British automaker has decided it’s due a reinvention, and this is the coupe it’s chosen to spearhead that process. It’s a Gran Turismo in both the classic sense of an elegant long-distance tourer, but also according to the modern definition of a car that possesses both organ-melting performance and superlative comfort, with no compromise along the way. Or, for shorthand, a car that wows.

Aston Martin Valkyrie rides forth as AM-RB 001 gets named

Aston Martin and Red Bull have given their AM-RB 001 hypercar a name, with the super powerful road-going racer set to launch as the Aston Martin Valkyrie.

Then, the Aston Martin Vantage began a trend of extreme high-performance variants.

The 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante is drop-dead gorgeous

The 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante is drop-dead gorgeous

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but I suspect it'd be an unusual critic that called the 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish S Volante anything other than stunning. The droptop version of the (hardly ugly) Vanquish S that made its debut last November, the Volante version chops off the roof for some open-air cruising. Just like its coupe cousin, however, there's no shortage of power or speed.

Aston Martin Vanquish S boosts power, style & eye-watering price

As good ideas go, taking what's acknowledged as one of the most beautiful Super GT cars and making it more powerful, even better looking, and more refined can't really be argued with. Figure us to be fans of the new Aston Martin Vanquish S, then, freshly announced for the LA Auto Show this week. It now musters up to 592 HP, and the British automaker promises that power will be delivered more smoothly and promptly than before.

Aston Martin Vantage GT8 is a race car gone street legal

Britain's Aston Martin is the latest to get in on the trend of adapting one of its most aggressive, track-bred race cars into a street legal road car. The company announced the Vantage GT8 this week, a limited edition model of the V8 Vantage that has direct ties to the Vantage GTE, Aston's professional motorsport vehicle. The GT8 has been outfitted with enough body modifications and special parts that it would be easy to mistake it for the real track car.
