Aston Martin DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo Supercar Enters GT6

Aston Martin DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo

At this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, Aston Martin unveiled the Design Prototype 100 Vision Gran Turismo, a digital concept developed specifically for Gran Turismo 6. It joins the Nissan Concept 2020, Mitsubishi XR-PHEV Evolution, Volkswagen GTI Roadster and Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision GT as just a handful of sports cars that can only be driven in the popular PS3 racing game.

Developed in-house and looking unlike any other Aston Martin currently on the market, the DP-100 has a very wide, highly-aerodynamic body featuring futuristic, slit-like LED headlights; cool scissor doors; a massive rear diffuser; and large center-locking 20-inch alloy wheels crafted out of carbon fiber and wrapped around in Michelin tires.

The striking supercar is powered by a mid-mounted twin-turbo V12 that produces up to 800 horsepower. The engine works together with “a fully functioning suspension system and state-of-the-art electronics” to deliver “blistering performance.”

Though just a design study, the DP-100 should not be dismissed entirely by enthusiasts. According to Aston Martin’s design director Marek Reichman, some of its visual cues could make their way into future Aston models.

“Many of the design cues visible in DP-100, such as the light blade rear lamps, could also feed through into future sports cars that we’ll launch in the offline world so the importance of this project should not be underestimated,” he said in a statement.

Here’s The First Look At Aston Martin’s DBX SUV

Published

on

Aston Martin DBX SUV Prototype

The first-ever utility vehicle from the British automaker finally shows itself.

Aston Martin has release images of its DBX SUV undergoing some serious testing in Wales.

The prototype is fully camouflaged, but we still get a good idea of what to expect.

For starters, it has evolved quite bit from the DBX concept car that was unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show, looking more like a traditional SUV-crossover than the low-slung, two-door concept, albeit with a pronouncly sloping roof line to make it appear sportier.

The front end falls in line with Aston Martin’s current design language, featuring a low-positioned wide grille that’s flanked by thin headlights, while the rear appears to have a set of stacked round lights.

Do you like the generation direction of the DBX SUV’s overall design?

Power could very well come from a twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V8 engine borrowed from Mercedes-AMG, sent to the ground via a permanent all-wheel drive system.

Aston says the model will be a true SUV, meaning it should be able to off-road and tow.

“DBX is a very different kind of Aston Martin, but we will be testing it in all conditions and across all terrains to ensure it delivers a driving experience worthy of the wings badge,” Matt Becker, Aston’s chief engineer, affirmed in a company statement.

The production Aston Martin DBX SUV won’t be unveiled until late 2019. It will be built at Aston Martin’s new plant in St. Athan, Wales, alongside a range of new Lagonda vehicles.

Aston Martin DBS 59 Pays Tribute To Aston’s 1959 Le Mans Win

Aston Martin DBS 59 Le Mans Tribute

Not quite as good as owning the real thing, but it’s much more modern, affordable and capable.

Aston Martin has unveiled a special edition DBS that celebrates its historic 1-2 finish at the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Based on the DBS Superleggera, the Aston Martin DBS 59 features several bespoke design features inspired by the iconic DBR1 that Caroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori piloted to victory six decades ago, including the iconic green paint job. Designers also gave it glossy carbon-fiber accents on the roof, roof strake, and hood vents; a Superleggera logo on the hood; and a Q fender badge representing Aston Martin’s customization division.

There interior is swathed in a combination of Obsidian Black and Chestnut Tan leather, while the headrests are embroidered with a bespoke ‘DBS 59’ logo. The seat backs and door inserts are wrapped in a material inspired by the fabric inside the DBR1

Other nifty features include special Saddle Leather Helmet Pods in the rear compartment that hold a replica of the 1959 crash helmets, a replica of the racing gloves worn by Shelby, period blue race overalls with the DBS 59 logo, and a two-piece luggage designed to match the black and tan interior of the car.

Bronze detailing add a nice touch to both the exterior and interior.

Like the standard DBS Superleggera, the Aston Martin DBS 59 produces 715 hp and has a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h), nearly triple the 250 hp the 1959 DBR1 delivered from its 2.9-liter engine .

Aston Martins only made five copies of the race car, and one of them was sold in 2017 at Monterey for $22.5 million.

In a similar vein, it plans to build only 24 examples of the DBS 59, each marked with a build number placed near the side strakes. Do you want one?

Aston Martin Going After Ferrari With DBS Superleggera AMR

Published

New Aston Martin DBS Superleggera red

Even with the sizzling Aston Martin DBS Superleggera fresh on the market, a new report claims that Aston Martin is already hard at work on an even hotter version of its high-octane sports car, one dubbed the DBS Superleggera AMR.

Speaking at the launch of the DBS Superleggera (pictured) to Australia’s , a senior Aston Martin executive essentially confirmed that the model is under development and will go up against Ferrari 812 Superfast when it hits the road.

“We produced an AMR version of the previous Vantage and have an AMR Rapide and DB11, so it’s safe to assume a DBS Superleggera is coming.”

The more hardcore DBS Superleggera AMR will not only have more power to work with, but it will also be a few pounds lighter courtesy of carbon fiber seats, steering wheel, exhaust tips and hood and have a sportier suspension complimented by grippier set of tires

The exec didn’t reveal just how much more power the DBS Superleggera AMR will have but noted that DBS Superleggera’s V12 can generate up to 750 horsepower, which is a decent pump over the current 715 horsepower. Any more power than that would apparently require significant reworking of the V12’s internals.

Taken together, the upgrades should allow it to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than 3.2 seconds — 0.2 sec quicker than the standard car — an a top speed of around (214 mph) 345 km/h.
