The 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante is pure convertible beauty

The 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante is pure convertible beauty

Aston Martin may have some fearsome V8 and V12 coupes in its line-up, but for true grand tourer style you really need a droptop. Enter, then, the 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante, dubbed "the ultimate convertible sports GT" and, at first glance at least, only with a little hyperbole. As you might expect, there's more to it than just peeling the roof off a DB11.

Aston Martin’s next luxury vehicle is a submarine

Aston Martin’s next luxury vehicle is a submarine

Aston Martin has announced a new team up with Triton that will see it playing the role of consultant on a new, limited edition submarine. While we normally expect to see luxury cars coming out of Aston Martin, it would appear that the company wants to branch out a bit. If you've ever wanted to own a submersible that shouts "opulence," then, it seems like this might be the submarine for you.

2018 Aston Martin DB11 V8 first-drive: The driver’s GT

2018 Aston Martin DB11 V8 first-drive: The driver’s GT

First the bad news: just because Aston Martin is adding a V8 engine to the DB11 lineup, doesn’t mean that the car is much more affordable, just in case you’ve been holding out. Indeed, if price is important to you, then might I divert your attention to the 2018 Lexus LC 500 instead. The V8-powered DB11 is on an entirely different level, distinguishing itself intriguingly when compared to the driving dynamics and characteristics of the 600 horsepower V12 DB11 we drove earlier this year.

Aston Martin has been known not only as the prefered auto brand of James Bond, but also as a maker of high-end sports cars packing thirsty V12 engines under the hood.

Aston Martin Vanquish Zagatos Speedster and Shooting Brake bring the sexy

Aston Martin Vanquish Zagatos Speedster and Shooting Brake bring the sexy

Aston Martin first pulled the wraps off the Vanquish Zagatos coupe in May of last year. That car was undeniably sexy and later a Volante version of the car turned up. Aston is now announced two more Zagatos cars to round out the quartet of offerings in the family and Aston saved the best for last. The two new version are the Vanquish Zagatos Speedster and Shooting Brake.

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

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. However, don't expect this to be anything like a mass-market play for the electric segment, with the British car company warning that it'll be severely limited in numbers.

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. The name follows in the footsteps of previous "V" cars, the British automaker's affinity for the letter dating back to 1951. 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.
