Aston Martin Finally Has an Electric Car And It’s Crazy Cute
Aston Martin just introduced an all-electric version of the DB5. Wait; what? Wasn’t the DB5 discontinued back in 1965? Yes, it was, although the company built an additional 25 chassis in 2020, but this EV is not an authentic DB5. It’s a two-thirds scale version of the iconic grand tourer. It’s called the DB5 Junior to reflect its smaller scale, and it’s being built in cooperation with The Little Car Company.

The Best Car Cover 2020
Protecting our cars from the elements is an important yet overlooked part of the car ownership experience. A car cover, for example, is regarded for the basic purpose of protecting our cars from the elements, be it dust, fallen leaves, or the freezing cold of the winter season.

It’s not enough that they just “cover” the car; these car covers can also protect our rides from UV rays, rust, and yes, would-be car thieves. Don’t sleep on the importance of a quality car cover. More importantly, go get yourself one that can protect your car from the elements of natural or artificial varieties. These are the best car covers you can find in the market. Take your pick on which one suits you and your precious ride the best.
