A Super Rich Person’s Aston Martin Valkyrie Is Going To Have A Moon Dust-infused Paint Job

Unless you happen to own a space rocket-making company, chances are you will not be able to make your car literally out-of-this-world by letting it hitch a ride on a rocket. Notwithstanding this, one man had a vision of making this soon-to-be-released hypercar out-of-this-world, but without the risk of not making back to Earth. After all, the car in question is the much anticipated, technologically advanced hypercar, Aston Martin Valkyrie, and that one man is Kris Singh, who plans to have his Valkyrie coated with a special concoction of paint that contains real moon dust.

Aston Martin Zagato Vanquish Shooting Brake Completes Aston Martin’s First Zagato Family

Considering myself a pretty huge fan of Aston Martin, I wonder how did I managed to miss this piece of news that came up in August. Anyways, you know what they say, it is better late than never and so here they are, the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagatos: Speedster and Shooting Brake. These two highly desirable rides join the coupe and Volante models to complete the quartet. The first of the quartet, the Vanquish Zagato Coupe is already rolling out of the production line.

Aston Martin Now Has Boats And It Is Also Going Deep With A Submarine Too

OK. We are going to make this quick. Aston Martin is extending its reach beyond land to the water. First, it designed a beautiful boat and then, came a submarine. Yes. You are not hearing things. Aston Martin has gotten itself into a partnership with private sub maker, Triton Submarines, to create a “strictly-limited edition vehicle” under a project called Neptune. While it is being unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show (as was the boat), very little is known about this Aston Martin-touched Triton Low Profile three-person sub.

Aston Martin’s Bold Hypercar, AM-RB 001, Officially Named After The Gods

Remember that crazy looking (in a good way, that is) Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing collab hypercar codenamed AM-RB 001 we saw last year? Well, it now has an official name, and it is called Aston Martin Valkyrie. But why the name ‘Valkyrie’. About that, it is not quite clear of actual reason, except for the fact that Valkyrie are female figures who have a say as to who may live or who may die in a battle. For those who fell in the battlefield, Valkyrie will bring half of them to Valhalla; the afterlife oversaw by Odin, Ruler of the Gods (in norse mythology).

Red Bull Racing Has Developed A Road-legal Hypercar With Aston Martin

Almost every supercar maker wants to make the fastest road car claim, but for British marque Aston Martin, it needs not make the claim, nor does it lust after the title – the automaker just collaborates with folks who have extensive knowledge of building really fast cars that weaves around precarious S courses, tackles hairpins and winning competitions to make a car that goes beyond supercar. And the folks they chose to work with is none other than the Red Bull Racing. The result is a beautiful hypercar codenamed AM-RB 001 that promised to be equally apt on the track as it is on the road. In addition, a track-only AM-RB 001, one that will have the performance that’s inline with today’s LMP1 Le Mans sports prototypes, is also in development.

Aston Martin Unveils The Company’s First Powerboat At Milan Design Week

Don’t ask why a luxury sports car maker like Aston Martin wants to make a powerboat. I guess the answer will be just, because they can. Teaming up with The Netherlands-based yacht designer Quintessence Yachts, the AM37 is the result of “years of research and development” which challenges “the status quo of the nautical world.” Well, we have seen the craziest boat ideas, so a boat that this beautiful is not uncommon – unless it is one that is both a boat and a car. But hey, it is an Aston Martin after all and you know what Aston Martin is all about? Continue reading Aston Martin Unveils The Company’s First Powerboat At Milan Design Week

Super Rare and ‘Original’ 1969 Aston Martin DB6 Mk 1 Volante Vantage to Go Under the Hammer

In this day and age, you’d be hard-pressed to find a good vintage sports car, much less one in its original condition. If you are one heck of a serious motor head with special love for Aston Martin’s classic and very deep pockets, then you may be interested in “an exceptionally rare and highly original” 1969 Aston Martin DB6 Mk 1 Volante Vantage that you could have a shot of owning when it goes under the hammer at Barons at Sandown Park on July 28, 2015. We are not going to have high hopes on the condition since it is being touted as ‘original’, after all, this beauty is over four and half decades old. That said, inimitable patina of age is inevitable and should be expected if originality takes priority in your collectible car checklist. Continue reading Super Rare and ‘Original’ 1969 Aston Martin DB6 Mk 1 Volante Vantage to Go Under the Hammer

Aston Martin Took DBX Concept to Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este

First debuted at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the British luxury marque has brought the bold DBX Concept to Lake Como for the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. The concept was entered in event’s Concept Cars and Prototypes class, a category which Aston Martin One-77 and V12 Zagato had won. When we first laid eyes on the DBX Concept, we can’t decide what Aston Martin was trying to do. To us, it looks like part sports car, part off-roader. Weird, I know and kind of reminds us of Lamborghini SUV concepts we saw years ago. The sports car part is pretty self-explanatory, judging from its coupe styling, while the off-roader side of things seem to be a suggestion of its massive wheel and elevated ride height. The ride height, if you don’t already notice, is partly attributed by its all-wheel drive system that this concept car wears.

Aston Martin Introduces 800+ Horsepower Track-only Vulcan at 85th Geneva Motor Show

Can enough of speed? Well, in that case, you will have take a jet aircraft, but for those with a burgeoning bank account, look forward to the Aston Martin Vulcan. The Vulcan is the British automaker’s track-only car, which we are obliged to call it a race car. It is a shame that it is only for track, because this baby is going to turn heads whenever it goes. Powered by a massive 7.0-liter V12 petrol unit, this beauty puts out over 800 horsepower and wears a body that’s styled entirely in-house by the Aston Martin design team lead by Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman and it is look into the future design language of the British marque.
