Goodwood 2017 Festival of Speed – Hillclimb Mega Gallery in 200 Photos

Goodwood is as glorious as ever this year! It seems like every supercar that matters is at Lord March’s estate – along with thousands of adoring fans. The clear stars of the show are the glorious Ford GT and the Bugatti Chiron. And of course the Lamborghini Centenario and the Aston Martin Vulcan.   Don’t forget the new Pagani Huayra BC. And clearly the McLaren 720S and world-premiere 570S cabrio are worth seeing in action. Don’t forget the fresh-facelifted Maserati GranTurismo or a back-to-back look at the Panamera’s new choice of sedan or wagon bodystyles.  They’re all represented here! Watching these massive machines roar through such a tight little course is a dream come true for most petrolheads worldwide. We have the next best thing though with these photos, though!  We have a glorious Afla-to-Zenvo photoset to share of the glorious festivities.  They really are organized in (nearly..) alphabetical order. …

Own the ONLY 2016 Aston Martin DB10 – SPECTRE Hero, Vulcan, DBX and DP-100 All Slightly Awful, Though

The DB10 is finally available to buy! But not for you.  =] Just ten of the bespoke 007 rides were created ahead of the film. It was not immediately clear if that ten included the movie stunt cars, or how the ten DB10’s would be sold. We now know.  Eight were used to film the movie, while two stayed in pristine and brand-new condition. Aston is keeping one of the new cars for itself to enjoy.  And that last one? Up for grabs!  Christie’s auction house is selling the DB10 on February 24th to benefit MSF, or Doctors Without Borders as it is known in English.  The sure-thing collector car may earn up to $2-million when all is said and done. AWFUL? As cool as the DB10 is for its SPECTRE showing and clear exclusivity… we are not that jazzed about the prospect of ownership.  Just a V8 Vantage under …

2016 Aston Martin VULCAN Meets Legendary Avro Vulcan Namesake

More than a few days late on this news, but it is too good to skip! Aston Martin’s ultra-high-performance flagship just had a meet and greet with its namesake, the Avro Vulcan nuclear bomber!  The Vulcan of the RAF has kept Britain and the world safe from the threat of nuclear weapons for the last 50 years, but will retire this month to the annals of history. And in doing so, this nuclear deterrent will enter the hall of fame for long-range strategic bombers. The beauty of the aircraft and its innovative, ahead-of-its-time delta wing design are icons for all industrial design. Just think that the UK went from making Lancaster propeller bombers to making a near-supersonic jet in just ten short years.  The fact that the Vulcan never had to complete its grim mission is a testament to its powerful deterrent effect on hostile powers. We all owe this …

Goodwood 2015 Preview – Aston Martin VULCAN vs McLaren P1 Prost Moment MSO Special

Aston-Martin-VULCAN-1sgfxb

McLaren is pulling rabbits out of hats in terms of esablishing historical provenance for the new P1 and P1 GTR, while Aston Martin is tearing up the glossy brochure and trying to relight the brand wildfire. Two contrasting strategies on full, proud display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The wildcard in this slugfest is the McLaren F1 GT Longtail — which bridges a link between then and now, plus P1 and the sold-out 2015 675LT. All will be revving hard up Goodwood hill. But they wont be alone. LaFerrari’s and even the FXX K will be vying for HDR memory among showgoers. Who will win the day’s draw? We vote McLaren on these preview images alone. The Vulcan is great to see out and about since touring the UAE. But its paintwork wrap (perhaps just in Aston’s expensive photos) is so jacked up, it almost looks like it was …

2016 Aston Martin VULCAN in 40 New Photos from Dubai and Manhattan

11174259_10153030251443355_805655471114005485_o copy

Updated 5.10.15 The 2016 Aston Martin Vulcan has been a real showstopper since its surprise reveal in Geneva. Replacing the One-77 as the ultra-fast brand flagship, the Vulcan will be a track-only wonder when it arrives to its 25 ultra-wealthy owners. But boy is this car hard to photograph in auto show environments! Its gloss-black lower aero treatment is delicious and highly advanced, but washes out in most indoor light. So in-person viewing will be extra important to clinch prized deposits. To that end, the Vulcan swooped into Dubai recently to be the local showroom’s electro-magnet… drawing in the great and good for an up-close look. For the rest of us, photos will have to suffice. Included below are 40 new images of this intriguing and mysterious new hypercar.     2016 Aston Martin VULCAN PREVIOUS WOW! This new Aston Martin flagship has some serious thrills in store for its …

850HP 2016 Aston Martin VULCAN Is All-New Tactical Strike Flagship with 7.0L Racing V12

2016-Aston-Martin-VULCAN-8a

  WOW! This new Aston Martin flagship has some serious thrills in store for its lucky owners. Named to honor the famous Avro Vulcan bomber, the Aston Vulcan will seek to match the excitement, adrenaline and glory of the first tactical nuclear strike plane ever produced. Luckily, this new track-only Aston delivers the goods without any fallout or blowback…. To continue the theme, the Vulcan was designed in a time when nuclear bombs had to still be dropped. Although the ICBM would arrive in the 1960s along with the production bomber, this plane was still a critical part of the US and Allied plan to respond to a Soviet attack. England was thought to be a primary target, so planes were always hot and ready to take off — often assuming the country would be destroyed before they made a return trip. This is the plane the Thunderball bad-guys stole, …
