Don’t be mistaken by GRID 2’s standing in the hierarchy of car racing video games. It doesn’t hold the cache of Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsports. Nor does it have the history of Need for Speed.

What it does have is a pretty good video game, one that’s now made even better with the presence of Aston Martin. Specifically, three of the finest Astons to have ever been built: the One-77, the V12 Zagato and the new Vanquish.

If for nothing else, Aston Martin’s presence in Grid 2 is a perfect marketing collaboration for the two companies. But even that pales to what the possibilities could be once you get to play the three exotics in the game.

GRID 2 isn’t scheduled to hit shelves until later this year, but we’re already excited to see how these three Astons fare in the world of GRID 2.

Aston Martin One-77

The most expensive car Aston Martin has ever built, the One-77 is so limited only a few people in the world can proudly claim to own one. Now you have a chance to do so, albeit a virtual model.

Still, it’s a One-77! Imagine what you can do with it once you can take the supercar out for a spin. Its 7.3-liter V-12, derived from Aston’s 6.0-liter powerplant cranks out 750 horsepower with torque checking in at about 533 pound-feet. Those numbers translated, the One-77 is capable of hitting 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds with a top speed of around 220 mph.

It’s not as expensive as the One-77, but make no mistake, the V12 Zagato is still a powerhouse on wheels. Having been penned by noted design house, Zagato, certainly helps in its appeal.

Plus, it’s powered by a 6.0-liter V-12 engine that produces 510 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, good enough to give the exclusive supercar a 0-to-60 mph time of around 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 180 mph.

The youngest of the three is the Aston Martin Vanquish and it’s a supercar that can obliterate a lot of its competitors, thanks to its 6.0-liter V-12 engine that produces 565 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque with a 0-to-60 mph time of 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
