  • 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR

    I awaken at the Dorint Hotel on a cool, dewy May morning. The surface of the famed Nürburgring-Nordschleife rests just a few feet outside my window, and it, as well as the plentiful surrounding greenery, is shrouded in a pea soup fog. Mid-May shouldn’t be this cold. The temperature struggles to hit 50 degrees. In a perfect universe, the sun breaks through the fog so I can test the new top performer in the Aston Martin DB11 range, the 2019 DB11 AMR, on the most revered and challenging racetrack in the world. Psyche! Aston Martin didn’t invite journalists here to drive on the...

    The 2018 Aston DB11 Volante just may be the grandest of today’s grand touring cars. A 2+2 convertible with a sensuous shape and 503 German horses under its clamshell bonnet, it’s a beautiful means of getting you wherever you want to go. We drove the DB11 Volante on the California coast...

    2019 Aston Martin DB11 gets the AMR treatment

    The DB11 is very much the grand tourer of Aston Martin's lineup, meaning it's big and comfy though not necessarily the best choice when heading for a track. For that there's the Vantage. However, not everyone will want to go with the smaller car, so Aston Martin has developed a sharper, more...

    Aston Martin celebrates 70 years of DB

    For Aston Martin, the most important set of initials isn't AM. Nor is it JB. But rather the two letters "D" and "B." They belong to David Brown, who rescued the company from financial doom back in 1947. It's his initials that adorn Aston Martin cars to this day and the British brand is celebrating...

    Aston Martins are known for two signature traits: drop-dead gorgeous looks and bad-ass soundtracks. But how do you maintain the band’s identity when you have to play a cover tune? If he were still alive, I’d tell you to ask Joe Cocker. Sometimes you get by with a little help from your...

  • 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante

    Aston Martin’s DB11 is great as a coupe but to really enjoy the full grand touring experience you’ll definitely want to get the convertible. Why is a convertible so vital for grand touring? There’s nothing like rolling through beautiful scenery with the sun and fresh air on your face. It’s even better when you have a powerful engine in front you making all manner of exiting sounds, as is the case with the new DB11 Volante. Revealed on Friday, the DB11 Volante is available to order now for delivery in the second quarter of 2018—just in time for summer. The car is...

  • Aston Martin prototype testing a twin-turbo V-8 from AMG

    Aston Martin is eager to celebrate the arrival of its latest DB beauty, the DB11. That car comes packing serious heat in the form of an all-new 5.2-liter V-12 breathing through a pair of turbochargers to crank out 600 horsepower. Still, some prefer the glorious wail of eight cylinders at full strength, and Aston Martin appears to be prepping an engine for them. When you're a technical partner with Mercedes-AMG, good things are bound to happen in this space. The British brand was recently spotted testing one of its V-8 prototypes at the Nürburgring, where it houses one of its R&D...
