PostHeaderIcon Chris Harris Reviews Aston Martin’s DB11, Gets Sideways Like It’s Nothing: Video

Aston Martin released the DB11 in 2016, offering a successor to the much-loved DB9 and promising to catapult the nameplate into a future filled with sporty good looks, modern technology, and no shortage of speed. Under the hood is a V-12 powerplant pushing a top speed of 200 mph. But while the specs are impressive, the DB11 still has some pretty big shoes to fill. With that in mind, the question is obvious – how does it get on in the real world? Top Gear’s Chris Harris decided to find out, and snagged the above-featured silver example of Gaydon’s latest and greatest for a quick spin in this seven-minute, 48-second video review.

The review starts on the street, where the DB11’s grand tourer chops are tested on a damp, rainy U.K. two-lane. Harris is immediately pleased to report that the DB11 fulfills its role with a supple, comfortable ride. Tackling public asphalt is a joy behind the wheel, with the cabin providing a lovely place to sit, despite the ageing Mercedes infotainment set-up. But no Chris Harris review would be complete without liberal application of counter steer, so after the road test, the car heads to the racetrack for a little tail out action. Make that a lot of tail out action. “It’s a really, really playful, fun car, with heaps of balance, and much easier to slide around than I ever expected!” Harris exclaims. “And it feels like it could do it for a long, long time. It feels robust!”

PostHeaderIcon Lotus Evora GT430

Feast your eyes on this beauty. This is the new Lotus Evora GT430 and it’s the fastest, lightest, and most powerful road-going Lotus ever made. That’s a lot of superlatives right there, and for good reason. No other production Lotus in the company’s long and proud history can match wits with the Evora GT430, and that includes the Evora 410, the predecessor to the GT430 that also held all those titles before the Evora GT430 came along.

There are a lot of reasons to get excited about Lotus’ new baby, not the least of which are the distinctions that it already has. In addition to that, though, this two-seater sports car is also going to be a lot more exclusive than any special edition Lotus Evora before it. Only 60 units are planned for the model. Lotus CEO Jean-Marc Gales calls the Evora GT430 “a true track-and-back sports car,” and there’s really no reason to argue those sentiments. It looks like an all-conquering roadster, has a surprisingly posh interior, and packs enough power to reach speeds in excess of 190 mph. Really, what more do you want out of a Lotus that the Evora GT430 doesn’t provide?

PostHeaderIcon The Aston Martin Valkyrie Is, In Some Ways, A Formula One Car Itself

Winter may have arrived in the land of Westeros, but here in the real world, the wait for the Aston Martin Valkyrie continues. The jointly-developed hypercar is shaping up to be one of the most eagerly anticipated cars of the year, and for its part, Aston Martin has done next to nothing in dousing the hype surrounding its crown jewel creation. In fact, all Aston seems to be doing is generating even more hype for the hypercar with the latest revelation coming by way of the automaker’s vice president and chief special operations officer, David King. Speaking with Motor1, King indicated that the track-spec version of the Valkyrie will be able to post lap times approaching those achieved by Formula One race cars.

Now, this isn’t the first time that a statement like this has hit the wire, but it is important in this case because of the pedigree of the people working on the actual car, particularly Red Bull Racing, one of the most successful Formula One teams of the past decade. Everything we’ve come to know about the Valkyrie leads up to its performance prowess, and with Red Bull involved in the thick of its development, there’s no reason to believe that Aston Martin is just trying to draw up some hype for its hypercar. It would be very interesting to see how the Valkyrie can do around a track like the Nurburgring where the fastest Formula One cars are believed to be capable of posting lap times of six minutes or less, almost a minute faster than the Lamborghini Huracan Performante that owns the lap record for production cars around the massive circuit.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin Valkyrie

One of Britain’s most iconic automakers, Aston Martin is mostly known for its exquisite grand tourer and fast race cars. While not the kind of automaker you’d go to in order to buy a supercar, Aston Martin made a small first step into this segment in 2009 with the bespoke One-77. In 2016, the Brits launched their second supercar, the Vulcan, but only as a track car. It was followed by a beefed-up AMR Pro version in 2017, but Aston Martin isn’t going to stop here. Following a partnership with Red Bull Racing, Aston Martin created the AM-RB 001, an innovative concept car that will go into production under the Valkyrie name.

Developed with input from Formula One genius Adrian Newey, the Valkyrie was designed with the most aggressive aerodynamics in mind and many of the techniques used in professional racing. Newey is also looking to achieve a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio, something only Koenigsegg obtained with the limited-edition One:1 supercars. Set to use a naturally aspirated V-12 engine to move about, the Valkyrie will be produced in both road-legal and race-only versions. Production of both will be very limited, so it’s safe to assume that it will be highly expensive.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin Valkyrie Is Getting Ready For Its Close-up

Years of handwork between Aston Martin and Red Bull has finally led to this. The Aston Martin Valkyrie is getting closer and closer to completion and we now have what Aston Martin designer Miles Nurnberger describes as 95 percent of the car’s exterior design. Yes, the near-production version of the hypercar is here, and we’re just about to fall in love with.

The British automaker describes the latest iteration of the Valkyrie as a “further developed version” of the car that we last saw earlier this year at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. At first glance, the differences between this updated version are evident compared to the previous version. The front end, in particular, looks considerably lighter, a by-product of Adrian Newey’s decision to incorporate new openings in the body between the cockpit and the front wheel arches. Turns out, this new design helps create more front downforce for the hypercar, enabling it to function at its maximum peak. No surprises then that Aston Martin decided to incorporate these changes into the car’s design. There are plenty more changes to the design of the Valkyrie, almost all of which were made to ensure that the car is as light as can be when it’s finally ready to make its world debut. Seems fitting then that we’re getting a good look at what could very well be the final design of the car because the version we saw at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show ago looks like a brute compared to this one.

PostHeaderIcon Take A Look At Koenigsegg Like You’ve Never Seen It Before

Koenigseggs are some of the most beautiful cars on the planet, so imagine the possibilities if the Swedish automaker partners with Swedish camera maker Hasselblad for a stunning photo shoot. Well, don’t imagine it because it actually happened. Koenigsegg and Hasselblad went on locations in and around Ängelholm in the province of Skane in Sweden to partake in a photo shoot for the ages with a pair of Koenigsegg Ageras serving as the proverbial models.

The shooting took place as recently as May and June 2017, a time that Ming Thein, Hasselblad’s chief of strategy, described as ideal since the weather was more balanced and the natural distribution of light in the environment was more appropriate to the kind of stylized treatment the camera maker was going for. The results, as you might expect, are downright spectacular, a testament to the status of Hasselblad as one of the best in its fields. The production behind it certainly felt that way too, as Hasselblad pulled out all the stops to make sure the photo sessions were worth all the trouble, including using three drones from drone company DJI, one of which is considered the largest photographic drone available on the market today. Put all these pieces together and you have a photo shoot of a lifetime, as you can see from the incredible shots that we’re taken.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Gets a New Pony Package

The Ford Mustang. It’s one of history’s most iconic muscle cars (and now a modern day crowd-hunting missile) that has seen a total of six generations, several different body styles, and one of the most loyal fanbases out there. It’s had its ups and downs but has been in constant production since March of 1964, with the most recent generation coming to life for the 2015 model year. Since then, the Mustang has been reworked a bit, with a new face for 2018 and a revamp of drivetrain options that will cut out the V-6 altogether. Along with the facelift and change to the drivetrain lineup, it was recently announced that even the EcoBoost Mustang will now come with line-lock, and now Ford is announcing a new “Pony Package” for the EcoBoost model that brings some stand-out aesthetics and the classic pony-in-corral grille that has appeared occasionally since it was displayed on the original concept in the mid-1960s

The last time the pony-in-corral grille was seen was back in 2015 as part of the Mustang’s anniversary package, but this time around as part of the package for the EcoBoost, you’ll also get a few other items that include side stripes on the lower body, tri-bar pony badge on the rear deck, a brightened beltline and window trim for hard tops, and a fresh pair of wheels. Inside, you get some floor mats with an embroidered pony logo to tie the whole package together. So far, there’s no price announced yet, but we should learn more about the price of this package as well as pricing for the 2018 Mustang shortly before it goes on sale in time for Halloween.

PostHeaderIcon BMW i8 Spyder

When BMW first showed off the i-brand concepts, we had no idea we would see production models so fast. In what seemed like just a few seconds in the grand scheme of things, we were looking at production models of the BMW i3 and BMW i8. With the i8 Spyder Concept debuting in 2012, and the production version of the i8 hitting dealers for the 2015 model year, Bimmer fans everywhere have been itching for a production version of the i8 Spyder. So much, in fact, that the rumor mill has been working overtime and there have even been a few false sightings of the unicorn. But, either hell has frozen over or pigs have sprouted wings (or, maybe it’s both) because someone finally caught an official i8 Spyder prototype cruising in the middle of nowhere. They aren’t the best photos we’ve ever received, but the top is clearly down, and it appears to be every bit legitimate thanks to that “hybrid test vehicle” sticker prominently displayed on the rear fascia.

And, while we’ve all been waiting somewhat impatiently for the i8 Spyder, the fact that we’re finally seeing a prototype isn’t all that surprising. Just a few months ago, BMW CEO Harald Krueger not only confirmed the car was in the works, but that it had a production target of 2018! That means that we should see it in production form sometime toward the end of 2017. It’s doubtful that this is the i8 Spyder’s first venture onto public roads, so props to BMW for managing to keep it out of the public eye for so long. But, with that said, let’s talk a little more about what we can see from these few spy shots in my speculative review below.

Updated 07/03/2017: The new i8 Spyder is actually coming! BMW dropped the first teaser video for it!

PostHeaderIcon Could Jaguar Have A Mystery Unveiling Planned At Goodwood?

Count Jaguar in as one of the many automakers that will be in attendance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It’s not exactly ground-breaking news though, is it? Well, it appears that Jag isn’t coming to Lord March’s estate empty-handed as rumors are circulating that the company is coming with a new version of its XJ sedan.

Now, this isn’t actually a rumor in the traditional sense because Jaguar itself announced such plans. What’s been left in the dark is what kind of version of the XJ this mysterious model is going to be. The only thing Jag hinted at is that it will be a new “derivative” of the luxury sedan and that it will use the Festival of Speed’s famous Hill Climb event to complete its final testing phase. Other than that, we’re left to our own imaginative devices to speculate on what derivative of the XJ this model is going to be. Could it be a new performance-oriented XJR? Maybe something out of Jag’s SVO division to sit alongside the XE SV Project 8? There’s also the possibility that with the current generation XJ nearing its life cycle, Jag might be developing this mystery XJ as a last hurrah of sorts – like perhaps an ultra luxurious final edition model? There are plenty of different directions that this mysterious XJ could go so predicting what it’s bringing to the table at Goodwood will likely amount to nothing. We’ll know the answer soon enough.

PostHeaderIcon Goodwood Festival Of Speed Pays Tribute To Seven Decades Of Maranello’s Finest

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is always one of the best events to go to when you’re in the mood to bask in the rich history of the automotive industry. Classic and modern cars alike are a common spectacle at the event. This year, the Festival of Speed is turning its sights to honoring a certain Italian automaker, who just happens to be celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. So, if any of you happen to be going, be on the lookout for 70 of the finest Ferraris in history, all of which will be on display to honor the Prancing Horse’s 70th birthday.

Competition cars. Single-seaters. Classics. Modern supercars. Pretty much every kind of car Ferrari has built in the last seven decades will make an appearance at Lord March’s estate over the weekend. On top of all the Ferraris that will be on display, about 25 more of the company’s racing cars will see action in the 1.16-mile Hill Climb, the highlight event of the Festival of Speed.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 GT2 RS is at Goodwood and Ready to Make its Debut

Ever since Porsche discontinued the 911 GT2 RS back in 2012, we’ve been waiting for a replacement. Then, all of the sudden, Porsche blew our minds by unveiling the car at this year’s Xbox E3 event as part of the Forza 7 presentation. It wasn’t the first time Porsche has done such a thing – if you remember back, the Cayman GT4 was also unveiled with Real Racing 3. But, despite the car being on the stage and being showcased within in-game footage of Forza 7 (it was even rocking a Forza plate on the front fascia,) Porsche decided to act like the car didn’t exist. This held true even after rumors began to circulate that the car was already sold out, but now we know why – Porsche was trying to save some hype for a full debut that takes place this Saturday at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

As of now, we know almost nothing about the 911 GT2 RS, outside of what it looks like and a few rumors that have been circulating in regard to its performance. It obviously takes cues from the 911.2-gen update as well as some styling from the GT3 RS. Arguably the best 911 ever built, the GT2 RS is currently sitting at Porsche’s stand with a cover draped over as shown in an Instagram post by race car driver, Leg Keen. Of course, we already have a damn good idea of what the car looks like, but considering Porsche is being so tight-lipped about it, and pretending it didn’t really exist, there could be something fresh lurking under that cover we haven’t seen yet. In light of its upcoming debut, let’s talk a little more about what we can expect.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro

After years of struggle and maintaining a lineup consisting mainly of old designs, Aston Martin unveiled the Vulcan in 2015. Although it wasn’t the first limited-edition model to have a unique styling, the Vulcan was the first supercar to wear the British badge. It was powerful, fast, radically different from any other Aston Martin, and built in limited numbers. It was also a track-only vehicle, which made it even more exotic. Two years later and the Vulcan returns, this time with an AMR Pro upgrade that makes it even more aerodynamic.

Launched in early 2017, AMR is the company’s new performance brand that basically brings the technology seen in Aston Martin Racing competition cars to customer vehicles. Essentially a body kit upgrade to the already potent Vulcan, the AMR Pro package makes the supercar more aerodynamic and quicker at the race track. At the same time, it moves Aston Martin closer to the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren, companies that have solid customer racing programs and highly customizable products thanks to bespoke high-performance divisions.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Wide-Body

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon represents the pinnacle of muscle car madness. It’s the world’s most powerful factory-produced V-8 powered car with 840 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque. It’s faster to 60 mph than the Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari, and McLaren P1. It’s also limited to just 3,300 units in North America so getting your hands on one is going to be tough. Don’t be too bummed, though. Just because the Challenger Demon is a little out of your reach, that doesn’t mean you can’t get a Challenger that looks, well, a little bit like it. Dodge is here for you, gentlemen, with a new wide body kit for the Challenger SRT Hellcat that channels some of that demented Demon spirit into a muscle car that’s no stranger to ungodly power.

The new Demon-inspired body kit provides the kind of visual enhancement that helps bring out a little bit of the Hellcat’s demonic side. The wider fenders, in particular, are immediately noticeable, as is the larger-than-usual set of tires that can now be fitted into the Challenger Hellcat thanks to the extra space provided by the fenders. But the kit as a whole is more than just improving bits and pieces of the Hellcat’s own aesthetic look. Dodge even says that the kit is as much about creating room for the Hellcat to improve its own performance credentials as it is about giving it a more menacing visual appearance. Whatever it did, it’s clear that Dodge has something special in store for Challenger Hellcat owners with this new wide-body kit.

PostHeaderIcon Don’t Expect A Hardcore Version Of The Kia Stinger For The Time Being

The Kia Stinger GT caused quite a stir when it made its debut at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. Not only did it usher in a new era of Kia performance models, but it also made it known that Kia’s all set to compete in a premiumsedan market currently dominated by the likes of Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz. It’s no surprise, then, that soon after the Stinger GT broke cover, the rumor mill was inundated with an insinuation that a “hotter” version could be in the works. A Stinger “GT-R,” as folks christened it. Well, according to no less than Albert Biermann himself – he’s the head of Kia’s high-performance division – a more powerful version of the Stinger GT is possible; it just won’t happen anytime soon.

As deflating as it sounds, Kia did offer a pretty sound explanation as to why it’s holding off on a more hardcore version of the Stinger GT. According to Biermann, the focus at this moment is to make sure that the Stinger GT is successful. Launching the car (it’s expected to arrive in the U.S. later this year) is the first step. From there, the company is intent on gauging the kind of customers it gets and understanding what these customers are looking for in terms of a more performance-oriented version of the model. It’s an approach that wouldn’t make sense if it was BMW, which already knows what its customers want. But this is Kia, a company that’s technically diving into these waters for the first time. As Biermann told Motoring Australia, entry into this premium market is something Kia needs to do “carefully.”

PostHeaderIcon Car for Sale: 1992 Porsche 911 RWB

Usually, when you see the phrase “No expense was spared on this build” in a craigslist ad for a modified vehicle, the result is either extremely impressive, or a complete mess. Luckily, it’s the former when it comes to this gorgeous early ‘90s 911. Even though it’s got 132,324 miles on the odometer, this thing is practically new, with a slew of high-end performance components that work well to bring out the best in the 964-era coupe. It’s dubbed the RWB Hollywood, and Akira Nakai from Rauh-Welt Begriff takes credit for the build. If you’re drawing a blank on the name, here’s the rundown – RWB is a Japan-based tuner of all things 911, and is best known for churning out some of the most outrageous Stuttgart stunners in the world, combining form and function in a single custom package.
