  • Kahn Design WB12 Vengeance

    Having felt that the second-generation Aston Martin Vanquish lacked the aggression of its predecessor, Afzal Kahn, founder of British coachbuilder Kahn Design, was inspired to come up with its own successor to the original Aston Martin super GT. The result was the imposing WB12 Vengeance unveiled to the world at the 2016 Geneva auto show. Kahn Design this week revealed another completed example, this one finished in an exterior hue that would make the incredible Hulk green with envy. The exterior also features black accents to highlight areas such as the hood's power bulge whose lines...

  • 2016 Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition

    The new James Bond movie Spectre is only a couple of months out from its debut, and that means we’ll finally get a good look at and perhaps the opportunity to learn more about the Aston Martin model developed exclusively for the film: the DB10.

It’s called the DB9 GT Bond Edition, and it's based on the DB9 GT that we first saw back in June. The DB9 GT is the final iteration of the DB9—a successor...

    In August it was revealed that Aston Martin’s DB9 and Vantage models would be on the wrong side of regulations when new side-impact federal safety standards take effect later this year, potentially leading to a sales ban.

This time around there is both a DB9 Carbon Black and a DB9 Carbon White. Rather than outright performance, style and what Aston Martin describes as “visual drama” are the hallmarks of the new special editions. ALSO SEE...
