  • Aston Martin DBX concept, 2015 Geneva Motor Show

    After scouring the world for the ideal spot to build a new SUV loosely based on 2015’s DBX concept, Aston Martin has finally confirmed the vehicle will be built at a new plant to be located in St Athan at the southern tip of Wales. Aston Martin had hinted at plant locations in China and even the United States but by picking Wales it means the automaker’s cars can remain quintessentially British, a trait many of its current buyers cherish. “During our 103-year history, Aston Martin has become famous for making beautiful hand-crafted cars in England,” CEO Andy Palmer...

The final version of the DB9 is the pumped up GT version, and we had a bit of a go at it. The GT badging should clue you in to the fact that this is a...
