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.

Aston Martin DB4 GT Continuation: A very rare drive indeed

So if you found a DeLorean with a working Flux Capacitor, when would you set the time circuits for? You could head 20 years into the future to see if the post apocalypse had brought us Barter Town and a warrior caste in Falcon XB coupes. You could return to 1978 and warn Colin Chapman of the ill-advisability of saying yes to John DeLorean, at risk of triggering a paradox that would see your means of escape disappear into a time vortex...

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.

See the full article here. First published September 21, 2017. 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.

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...

2018 Aston Martin Vantage: Key design points explained

Few would argue the design merits of the previous generation Aston Martin Vantage. Even today, 12 years on from launch, it turns heads for all the right reasons. Fast forward to 2018, and the all-new Vantage has little (if anything) in common with its predecessor...

Aston Martin to develop electric motors in-house

Aston Martin's future holds a number of new electric vehicles – and they'll be built in-house. Speaking to media at the Geneva motor show, Aston Martin CEO, Andy Palmer, said the transition from internal combustion to electric power will force the brand to protect intellectual property, and that will begin with in-house electric motors...

Aston Martin Valkyrie coming to Australia

UPDATE: Turns out the vehicles sold are allocated to Australia and New Zealand as a combined market, with the current sales allocated to New Zealand. Although, the brand says there is a great deal of interest in the Valkyrie for the Australian market. Australia is home to a number of hypercars, but most of them can't be driven on the road...

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...


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.
