Aston Martin CEO says future will include hybrid model

Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, says the future of the British luxury car maker will likely include the release of a hybrid model. This wasn't a confirmation that something is already in the works, but rather an acknowledgement that hybrids and electric vehicles are the eventuality of all cars, and at some point it will be Aston Martin's turn. The exec shared his thoughts with Autocar last month at the 2015 Nürburgring 24 Hour endurance race in Germany.

Aston Martin EV and plug-in hybrid vehicles in the works

For many of us the name Aston Martin brings to mind James Bond and massive V12 engines. Nothing about the current Aston Martin really makes us think green or fuel efficiency. That may be changing with word that Aston Martin is developing a couple new cars that will be green. One of the cars will be an EV and the other will be a plug-in hybrid.

Aston Martin on ICE: James Bond for a Day with American Express by Invitation Only

Traveling can be hard enough without having to worry about booking flights, hotels and planning out what or where to eat. If you’re the type that’s used to the high life or simply prefer to have someone else do the heavy lifting when it comes to making travel plans, then the American Express Platinum card is worth considering. More than just a credit card, I’ve been finding that the services and benefits included when you have it in your wallet are worth their weight in platinum.

Aston Martin announces their 800-bhp Vulcan supercar

Aston Martin announces their 800-bhp Vulcan supercar

Though you won’t be able to take it for a spin, the new Aston Martin Vulcan is one you’ll definitely be lusting after. The track-only supercar was just unveiled, and it’s just plain sexy. Aston Martin calls it their “most intense and exhilarating creation to date.” That might sound braggadocios, but it might also be true. At 800-bhp or more, the Vulcan also has a grip (I had to) on performance. To make it even more exciting, Aston Martin is limiting the Vulcan’s production run to just 24.

It’s Friday, so check out this Aston Martin Vulcan screaming

Aston Martin has a new hypercar in the pipeline, promising to bring something very loud and very special to the Geneva Auto Show early next month. Details on the Aston Martin Vulcan are still in short supply - right now the storied British marque is only previewing some track-day squealing and roaring - but according to the rumor machine the car is shaping up to be a slice of highly limited-edition exotica aimed at those who want to blast past McLaren and Ferrari owners when racing.

Aston Martin Works 60 features recycled metals inside

Say the name Aston Martin and chances are many of us think about James Bond and car chases. Aston Martin has been the vehicle of choice in many Bond movies for decades.

Aston Martin is building 10 of Bond’s SPECTRE DB10

Aston Martin took center stage along with James Bond himself at the big "Bond 24" reveal of Spectre this morning, taking the wraps off the movie's automotive star, the DB10, at the same time. Now, the company has detailed its plans for a limited run of the eye-catching coupe, though it's unclear at this stage whether any will be offered up for private sale. Even if we do see some production DB10 on roads, however, they'll nonetheless be a very rare sight.

James Bond Spectre is 007’s 24th movie

The new James Bond movie, twenty-fourth in the series, will be called Spectre, Sony and director Sam Mendes have announced this morning. The much-anticipated picture will see Daniel Craig reprise his role as James Bond, while the villain - initially expected to be Ernst Stavro Blofeld, but now named Oerhauser - will be played by Cristoph Waltz. Craig will be joined by a brand new car, with Aston Martin developing the DB10, a sinuous coupe that's likely to pack some serious technology (and more than a few guns).

Aston Martin’s Lagonda superluxe sedan is a heartbreaker

Aston Martin’s Lagonda superluxe sedan is a heartbreaker

Back in July when Aston Martin said it would resurrect the Lagonda name for a super-luxe sedan targeting its heaviest spenders, we only had a couple of shadowy images to go by. Now, the Lagonda is making its official - pictorial - debut at the Paris Auto Show, and we're back to wondering what dark, unseemly acts we'd need to perform for our bank manager in order to afford one.

Aston Martin Lagonda: The stunning super-sedan you can’t have

Aston Martin is resurrecting the Lagonda name, and it's attaching it to a beautiful new four-door "super saloon" targeting the uber-wealthy. Following in the tire treads of the similarly-exclusive One-77 and V12 Zagato supercars, the new Lagonda will be a hand-made love song to luxury performance. Unfortunately, it'll also be a limited one.

Jaeger-LeCoultre watch remotely controls your Aston Martin

How smart does a watch have to be before you call it a smartwatch? Jaeger-LeCoultre isn't trying to fit the new AMVOX2 Transponder into the latest wearables category, but the watch that's also a remote control for your Aston Martin certainly has geek-appeal, with controls invisibly built into the cover glass to lock and unlock the car.
