Aston Martin

Aston Martin was founded in England in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford before producing its first car in 1915. The company name was born of Martin’s surname and the Aston Clinton Hillclimb where he raced. From 1994, Aston Martin was owned by the Ford Motor Company, before the British marque was purchased by a joint venture company in 2007. With a history steeped in motorsport and ties to the James Bond franchise, the brand has maintained an air of exclusivity that continues today.

World’s greatest driving roads: Ortega Highway, California, USA

The Ortega Highway has an ominous reputation for being one of the most haunted roads in the United States of America. Reports of ghost sightings and other apparitions, along with an awesome set of corners, made it a road I desperately wanted to drive! Our weapon of choice for this road was the all-new Aston Martin DB11 V8...

2018 Aston Martin DB11 V8 review

We had reservations about dropping a V8 into an Aston Martin DB11, but believe us, this is the better driver's car.

2017 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Red Bull Racing Edition review

Before Aston Martin ushers in a new turbocharged era for the popular Vantage, it's time for one more, old fashioned, last hurrah for its naturally aspirated V8. Meet the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Red Bull Racing edition.

2017 Aston Martin DB11 review

The Aston Martin DB11, turbocharged? That should be considered a violation of whatever might be the automotive equivalent to the Geneva convention. But... maybe we can make an exception.

As we all work hard at celebrating the end of a big year and the start of a new one, we’re looking back on some favourites of 2017!  They say, less is more.

2018 Aston Martin Vantage revealed: First video tour

Took them long enough... here it is, the new 2018 Aston Martin Vantage. A new (DB10-inspired) look and AMG power (heavily fettled). What do you think?

2017 Aston Martin DB11 review

Read the full article here. When a new turbocharged future was confirmed for the Aston Martin DB11, the news should have caused Trump-levels of protests outside the brand’s factory in Gaydon. Well, that’s what I thought - right up until the moment I got inside the new DB11 and went for a drive.    ...

2017 Aston Martin DB11 Review

Read the full article here. Stunning, isn’t it? But mere photographs simply don’t do the all-new Aston Martin DB11 justice – on the street, even at a distance, this automotive artwork paints a picture of must-have desirability and near-perfect proportions. Compared to the aging DB9, it looks to have moved two to three generations ahead, yet it’s still unmistakably on-brand...

Aston Martin DB9, DBS, Virage and Vanquish recalled

Aston Martin Lagonda has recalled the DB9, DBS, Virage and Vanquish, over concerns an in-cabin battery supply cable could cause a fire. If the driver seat is pushed all the way back in affected cars, it could compress (and damage) the battery supply cable. According to the company, this can happen when the driver manually puts the seat back (likely, if they're tall) or, in some cases, if the seat loses its calibration...

1969 Aston Martin DB6 Review

[An extract from my archives on classic automotive motoring.] To drive it is exactly everything you'd hope for out of a classic grand tourer. Low-sporty seating position with perfect visibility over the long and curvaceous bonnet. The steering wheel is a mammoth wooden artifact, but it doesn't matter...

2011 ASTON MARTIN V8 VANTAGE Review

I had trouble deciding between this car and the 911. In terms of performance and handling, I've no doubt that the 911 wins, but the Aston Martin Vantage is the car that always raises my pulse when I approach it. It is hand made and feels very solid. If there is one car I want to own for the rest of my life, this is the one.
