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 has announced a new limited edition model called the Works 60 and only six of the special rides we be built. To make each of the six more special, they feature metals recycled from the engine of a heritage Aston Martin model.

Aston Martin is building 10 of Bond’s SPECTRE DB10

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 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.

Aston Martin begins massive recall after finding pedals could snap

Aston Martin begins massive recall after finding pedals could snap

Aston Martin has been forced to recall around 75-percent of all the cars it sold since late 2007, after discovering that parts of its accelerator pedals were made with substandard plastics and could snap while driving. The issue - which Aston Martin insists has caused no actual crashes or accidents of which the company is aware - stems from one of the famed brand's subcontractors using a counterfeit plastic to mold the pedal arms.

2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante pushes the drop-top envelope

2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante pushes the drop-top envelope

Aston Martin has taken the wraps - and the roof - off its latest sportscar, the Aston Martin Vanquish Volante, dubbed the ultimate grand tourer and the first of the British marque's drop-tops to feature a fully carbon-fiber skin. Packing the same AM11 V12 565HP engine as the Vanquish Coupe - good for a hair-messing 4.1s dash from 0-62mph - the Vanquish Volante has a soft roof, unlike some hard roof rivals, which drops in 14 seconds.

Aston Martin CC100 marks centenary with crazy one-off racer

Aston Martin CC100 marks centenary with crazy one-off racer

A new Aston Martin is something worth shouting about, but it'll take a number of loud (and rich) voices if the one-off CC100 Speedster Concept is to spawn a production version. The pared-back racer, crafted by the British sportscar company to celebrate its centenary, borrows the long, low, lean style of Aston Martin's 1950s DBR1 racers, but brings the technology up to date with a 6.0-liter V12 engine good for a 0-62mph dash in "a little over four seconds."

Aston Martin Rapide S first hydrogen car to race around Nürburgring

Last month we discussed Aston Martin's newest project, a hydrogen-equipped hybrid version of its Rapide S sports car. It's going to make its official racing debut later this month during the ADAC Zurich 24 Hours of Nürburgring, but the car already ended up making history as being the first-ever hydrogen-powered car to take a lap around the historic track.
