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.

Cadillac XP-840 Eldorado Fastback Was Way Ahead Of Its Time

The Cadillac XP-840 looks like something that Darth Vader would have driven in the 1960s

The Coolest Concept Cars That Actually Made it to Production

The Coolest Concept Cars That Actually Made it to Production

Not all concept cars die painful deaths, and these are the cars that actually made it into production

Concept cars are how automakers reveal the future direction they are going to take with different models. They seemed pretty outlandish and ambitious in the past decades, but the future has caught up. True, flying cars are still a ways off but what seemed alien in 1995 is far more pragmatic in the 2020s. The current concept cars resemble a lot of the design language of today’s cars, which means they are in tune with what the people want. Unfortunately, the majority of concept cars do not make it to production status. It may be funding or a general change direction. The ones that did pull through, though, have become some of the most influential models in the automotive market.

The Oldsmobile F88 Is What The C1 Corvette Should Have Been From The Start

The Oldsmobile F88 Is What The C1 Corvette Should Have Been From The Start

The first Chevrolet Corvette did not come with a V-8. Oldsmobile changed that by introducing the F88

The story of the Chevrolet Corvette started back in 1953, with the introduction of the C1. Although America’s sports car is known for its potent V-8 engines, the earliest production examples started with the anemic Blue Flame – a 3.9-liter (235 cu in) inline-six that made 150 horsepower and 223 pound-feet (302 Nm). And while, eventually, they put a V-8 in it, it was Oldsmobile that beat Chevrolet to it by making their own version of the Corvette called the Oldsmobile F-88.
