First Look: Aston Martin DB11 AMR

"A new dimension of race-inspired dynamism."

by on May.11, 2018

The new DB11 AMR will become the fast model in Aston's current line-up - top speed 208 mph.

Aston Martin is ready to pump up its already serious DB11, taking the street-legal grand tourer and given it some serious track capabilities.

Long rumored, the 2019 Aston Martin DB11 Grand Tourer is making its official debut today – not entirely a surprise after some initial details accidentally leaked out over the last few days.

Product News!

The automaker boasts that the AMR edition not only replaces the V-12-powered DB11 as the flagship of the nameplate’s expanding range, but that it delivers “a new dimension of race-inspired dynamism and performance to the DB11 family.”

Aston Martin Goes to Extreme With Electric Lagonda Vision Concept and Track Ready Valkyrie AMR Pro

Lagonda set to become all-electric sub-brand.

by on Mar.06, 2018

The Lagonda's modest exterior conceals the Vision Concept's unexpectedly large interior package.

This year’s Geneva Motor Show is going to extremes, from environmentally friendly EVs to exotic performance vehicles. And perhaps nowhere is that more apparent than at the Aston Martin stand where two debuts cover both ends of that spectrum.

The British marque’s Valkyrie AMR Pro is a track-only version of the 1,000- horsepower Valkyrie hypercar. The Lagonda Vision Concept, meanwhile, reveals Aston Martin’s plan to not only revive the once popular Lagonda nameplate but transform it into a zero-emissions sub-brand.

Geneva News!

“Lagonda exists to challenge (conventional) thinking,” said Aston Martin President and Chief Executive Officer, Andy Palmer, who noted that the show car also previews a new design language that will “potentially” return on two Lagonda models planned to reach market by 2023.

Aston Martin Recalls Entire Run of New DB11 Sports Coupes

Faulty wiring could cause unexpected airbag deployment.

by on Jan.22, 2018

The convertible, or Volante, version of the DB11 was added to the mix last year.

Aston Martin is recalling the entire run of its newest sports coupe, the DB11, due to a defect that could cause the vehicle’s driver’s side airbag to inadvertently deploy.

The problem is not related to defective Takata airbags but rather is caused by a wiring issue in steering columns provided by Daimler AG, an ally of the British sports car company. Daimler itself has recalled over 1 million vehicles due to the defect.

Safety News!

Airbag problems have become a major headache for automotive manufacturers in recent years, though the majority of problems have involved faulty Takata airbags that have so far been linked to at least 21 deaths and hundreds of injuries.

Aston Gets in Gear With Launch of New Vantage

Vantage GTE race car also makes its debut.

by on Nov.22, 2017

The new Aston Martin Vantage has been rebuilt from the ground up, sharing little with its predecessor.

For a brand that could go years without even a modest refresh of its line-up, Aston Martin is certainly kicking things into gear. The British marque has been busy rolling out a procession of new products, including two versions of the DB11, a track-ready Valkyrie, its first-ever electric car and now two all-new versions of the Vantage, one for the street and one for the track.

Expected to start at somewhere around $150,000 once it lands in the States, the two-seater is being positioned to take on the more powerful versions of the Porsche 911, and is a critical link in the broad expansion plan envisioned by CEO Andy Palmer when he come onboard at Aston three years ago.

Product News!

“A true sports car with a sharper look and a keener dynamic edge, the new Vantage is the Aston Martin pure driving machine enthusiasts have been waiting for,” proclaimed Palmer. “Creating a worthy successor has been a challenge,” he added, considering the outgoing Vantage was “the single most successful model in Aston Martin’s history.” (more…)

Aston Aims for the Ragged Edge With Valkyrie AMR Pro

Only 25 track-ready hypercars to be produced.

by on Nov.17, 2017

Aston Martin's rapid pace of new models keeps going with the new track-only Valkyrie AMR Pro.

For a brand that often took years to simply update old models, Aston Martin has been extraordinarily busy lately, launching new products like the DB11 and its first-ever electric vehicle, the RapidE. It’s also working up a new hypercar, the Valkyrie, announced at the Geneva Motor Show last winter.

Now, the British marque revealed plans to produce a track-only version, the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro, of which just 25 copies will be produced.

The Last Word!

“Valkyrie has always been about pushing the limits and redefining the possible,” said Aston CEO Andy Palmer. “The road car will set new benchmarks for performance, engineering and technology – a hypercar in the truest sense – and with the track-only Valkyrie AMR Pro those limits will be pushed further still.” (more…)

Aston Martin Drops the Top with New DB11 Volante

A one-touch affair.

by on Oct.13, 2017

The new Aston Martin DB11 Volante comes out just in time for a few indian summer, top-down runs.

Better late than never. While autumn may be upon us, Aston Martin is giving luxury buyers a reason to look forward to warmer weather with the debut of the new DB11 Volante.

The convertible is set to become the third variant of the Aston Martin DB11 when it rolls into showrooms next spring, joining a rapidly growing line-up that will soon include both the DBX sport-utility vehicle as well as the British maker’s first all-electric model.

Aston sticks with a folding cloth top for the DB11 Volante, rather than the origami-like metal alternatives some competitors have opted for. But the approach helps minimize added weight and keeps the center of gravity down low, a definite for a 2+2 sports car. (more…)

Aston Martin Going 100% Hybrid

All-electric models also in plan; but emphasis will be on performance.

by on Sep.05, 2017

The new Aston Martin DB11.

Best known for sleek sports cars like the new DB11, Aston Martin is plugging into alternative power, the British brand’s CEO telling TheDetroitBureau.com that all of its products will be offered with hybrid powertrains in the near future, while as much as a quarter of its line-up will go fully electric.

That shift reflects, in part, growing pressure from regulators around the world, even Britain now laying out what could be a forced shift away from internal combustion. But Chief Executive Andy Palmer stressed that Aston says that won’t necessarily be a bad thing for its buyers as it will use hybrid technology as much to boost performance as improve fuel economy.

Electrifying News!

An example of that will come with the arrival of the Valkyrie, the exotic hyper-car Aston unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this year. Described by Palmer in an interview this week as “a symbol of our company, a symbol of what we can do,” the Valkyrie will use a Formula One-style KERS hybrid system to deliver over 1,000 horsepower, making it one of the most powerful vehicles offered on the retail market.

An Aston Martin Station Wagon? No, a “Shooting Brake”

Aston reveals two new takes on the exclusive Zagato.

by on Aug.16, 2017

Aston Martin is looking to break from tradition again with a new Zagato-based shooting brake expected to be unveiled at the Concours d'Elegance.

As we’ve come to learn during the last couple years, the very British Aston Martin is anything but hidebound to tradition. Under CEO Andy Palmer it is developing both an SUV and an EV. And now, we’re about to see an Aston Martin station wagon.

Okay, it’s not the sort of wood-paneled wagon that Baby Boomers grew up with, but an elegant alternative to the classic Aston coupe that offers what appears to be a good bit more flexibility and utility. If anything, it’s the British marque’s answer to the Ferrari FF.

What a Conceptt!

And it’s one of a handful of interesting products Aston Martin is bringing with it to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this weekend, a list that also includes the new Vanquish Zagato Volante, a striking convertible version of the Zagato Coupe that shows that when it wants to, Aston can be quite respectful, indeed, of its heritage.

Aston Martin Parts Ways With LeEco on RapidE EV Program

Project scales back – but other EV models, including version of DBX ute, likely to follow.

by on Jun.27, 2017

Aston Martin plans to have the RapidE battery-car in production in 2019, but in low volumes.

Aston Martin has released renderings of its first fully electric vehicle, the RapidE, a battery-based version of its four-door Rapide sports sedan.

But the British maker is also confirming that it is scaling back the program, which was aimed at producing a competitor to the likes of high-end versions of the Tesla Model S. Splitting from its Chinese-owned partner, LeEco, Aston now plans a “limited run” of just 155 RapidE battery-cars.

The break-up was first reported by the Reuters news service, quoting Aston CEO Andy Palmer. A well-placed source confirmed that report for TheDetroitBureau.com, but also noted that, if anything, Aston has plans to keep pushing into the battery-car space with additional models, starting with a version of the upcoming DBX sport-utility vehicle.

F1-based Aston Martin Valkyrie Set to Punch Out “At Least” 1,000 HP

Supercar set to top “range” of new, mid-engine models.

by on Mar.08, 2017

The Aston Martin Valkyrie takes the British brand into a new realm of performance.

Aston Martin is ending its long product drought in a big way, as it is demonstrating at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, starting with a F1-derived hybrid hypercar that will usher in an assortment of new mid-engine models, the maker’s CEO tells TheDetroitBureau.com.

Named for the Norse angels who carried fallen warriors off the battlefield, the Aston Martin Valkyrie is the product of an alliance with Red Bull Advanced Technologies. It’s also the latest in a series of extreme machines from the British maker that, since the debut of the original Vantage in 1951, have used “V” names to stand out from the rest of the Aston line-up.

Auto Show News!

With its bubble cockpit and oversized wheel wells, the new model, codenamed AM-RB 001, will be the most powerful model in Aston’s history. Though final numbers have yet to be released, Aston CEO Andy Palmer said the hypercar’s final output “has to be at least 1,000 horsepower.”
