Aston Martin Overview

Aston Martin hasn’t exactly had a spot-free history. In fact, it’s had a rougher time than most big names out there. The company has even filed bankruptcy no less than seven times over the course of its life. For the longest time, it looked like Aston Martin, which has been around since it was founded by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford in 1914, was going to go belly up. Fortunately, that didn’t happen, and James Bond still has his choice of amazing cars. These days, Aston Martin has a relatively full lineup that includes the Vantage, DB11, DBS Superleggera, Rapide AMR, Rapide E, and the Valkyrie.

Aston Martin Shoves A Straight-Six Into The DBX, But It’s Only For China

If you’ve always wanted an Aston Martin DBX with an inline-six, then you’re in luck, if you live in China.

Aston Martin is introducing a DBX that’s fitted with a 3.0-liter straight-six turbo gasoline engine. This, however, is only limited to China, but it does increase the DBX’s appeal in that market even further.

These Photos Confirm Aston Martin Has a High-Performance DBX in the Works

In less than a year’s time, Aston Martin will have the production version of this high-performance DBX on the road

Back in August 2021 we learned that Aston Martin was planning a whole bunch of different DBX models, and I even went so far to suggest that a DBX coupe is inevitable. These new spy shots aren’t of that crazy model, but this is the DBX S – the high-performance DBX that you probably didn’t know you’d want. Our photographers caught it blazing around the Nürburgring in all its glory.

2021 Aston Martin DBX By Mansory

800 horsepower and an aggressive exterior look completely transformed the DBX

The DBX is the first luxury SUV offered by Aston Martin. But, despite its price - about $180k, the DBX is not really a powerful SUV. It offers indeed an impressive amount of luxury features for the interior, but both the powertrain and the exterior looks could use some improvement. And this is where Mansory comes into the picture!

The Aston Martin Vanteon Could Hint At Aston Martin's Future Design Language

The Aston Martin Vanteon Could Hint At Aston Martin’s Future Design Language

The Aston Martin Vanteon is an epic Project that gives us a glimpse of possible Aston Martin designs in the future

It’s safe to say Aston Martin is late to the EV/hybrid bandwagon. With that being said, we already know that the British carmaker is already headed in that direction and the first of three (so far) planned EV models is said to debut in 2025. Like other makers, the change will not be sudden, as it’s being foreshadowed by revisions to the DB11, as well as other models. With Aston Martin’s upcoming EV models, one has to ask, how will future Aston Martin models look? Pixel artist Dejan Hristov may have the answer.

Finally an Aston Martin DB5 You Can Afford!

Finally an Aston Martin DB5 You Can Afford!

There’s a catch, though: you can not drive it!

Back in 2019 a fully restored Aston Martin DB5 that stared in the James Bond movie "Goldfinger" was auctioned for the impressive amount of $6.4 million. With a price like this, no matter how much we like the DB5, you can imagine that not many people out there will get the chance to actually own one.

Now though, you can own a very cool looking DB5. But there is a catch: you can’t drive it! And that’s because it comes from Playmobil! Yeah, we know, now the DB5 you were dreaming about, but it is better than nothing, right?

2023 Aston Martin DB6 Remastered By Lunaz

2023 Aston Martin DB6 Remastered By Lunaz

It’s not the cheapest electric conversion on the market, but this is a classic Aston Martin we’re talking about

While it may be true that the Aston Martin DB6 has never enjoyed the same success or reputation level as the DB5, it was still a very impressive car. It offered improved aerodynamic and specifications compared to the DB5 and was offered in both coupe and convertible form. The problem with the DB6 is of course its age. Being built from 1965 to 1971 it is of course very difficult to find one in pristine condition. And this is where Lunaz comes along. For the right money - and we are talking about $1 million - the company will restore, re-engineer, and electrify your DB6.

Aston Martin DBX Coupe – Is It Inevitable?

Aston Martin DBX Coupe – Is It Inevitable?

Five or six new versions of the DBX are coming, and Aston Martin could jump onto the coupe-SUV bandwagon

The Aston Martin DBX was a controversial success from launch and, today, it accounts for more that 50-percent of the company’s global sales. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that there are more derivatives of the DBX coming – a move that is expected to keep demand high and make up for the fact that Aston Martin occupies just a small portion of the SUV market. Some of the new DBX models coming are at least somewhat expected, but you might not like all of what Aston Martin is planning.

A New Prototype Suggests Aston Martin Is Doing Unthinkable Things to the Vantage

A New Prototype Suggests Aston Martin Is Doing Unthinkable Things to the Vantage

An aggressive-looking Test Mule suggests Aston Martin is shoving their Twin-Turbo V-12 into the Vantage

Aston Martin is one of the more enigmatic brands that we occasionally remember is up to something. That said, the British brand, like others, has a certain pattern in which it does things. When the previous-generation Vantage came out, it was equipped with a 4.3-liter V-8. It later grew to a 4.7-liter, but performance was still "meh" compared to some Ferrari or Porsche offerings. That said, in 2009, the entry-level Aston Martin got a V-12. Now, it seems Aston Martin is about to do the same thing to the current Vantage.

What is the Least Expensive Aston Martin?

Aston Martin isn’t your run-of-the-mill manufacturer. It’s a high-end sports car manufacturer, so even the cheapest model is a little too expensive for the average joe. Currently, the cheapest model in Aston Martin’s showroom is the Vantage, which carries an MSRP of $149,995 before options, taxes, and any other fees.

What is the Sportiest Aston Martin?

The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is commonly referred to as the sportiest Aston Martin. It’s the new kid on the black, and it has a timeless appearance that exudes class, sophistication, and power. All of that comes at a cost, though, and you shouldn’t expect to shell out less than $305,000 before any other taxes or fees. Start going crazy on the options list and you’ll shell out considerably more.

What is the Most Popular Aston Martin?

The most popular Aston Martin is actually a toss-up between the Vantage and the DB11. The DB has a long, illustrious history and the Vantage is, well, the Vantage. The DBS Superleggera is also encroaching on the territory of being most popular, but with the $305,000 price tag, it’ll probably never see the same popularity as its slightly lesser brethren.

What is the Most Expensive Aston Martin?

The Aston Martin Valkyrie is the most expensive Aston Martin and carries a price tag of $3.2 million. It’s a limited-production supercar, but you can expect it to carry the torch of being most expensive in the lineup for a long time to come. The most expensive road-going Aston Martin is the Rapide E at $330,000, and it’s followed by the DBS Superleggera at $305,000.

Are Aston Martin Cars Reliable

Aston Martin did suffer from reliability complaints at one time; however, once Ford took ownership of the brand, things started to look up. Now, the company is owned by a different consortium that has continued to improve sales and reliability over time. These days, the Aston Martin brand is fairly reliable, and it’s a good thing since it can’t depend on loyal customers to forgive its reliability problems anymore.
