Aston Martin Vulcan review

April 13, 2015 at 18:55

Aston does not caricature cars, but Vulcan knowingly violates all bounds. The height of the machine is only 1186 mm. This is the lowest Aston, lower than the One-77, below all the racing cars. And it is long. Aft is huge, ridiculous, unmatched wing. Roof and windows are merged into a single “light.”
Yes, Aston deliberately chose futurism. This hero of science fiction, but unlike DP100 it is real. At least as far as can be real special series Track and a half million pounds per car. In other words, together with the concept of CC100 and mega sedan Lagonda Taraf, Vulcan – the bridge between today’s and tomorrow’s Aston. It takes pleasure unthinkable twenty-four lucky and makes us get used to the new design language. This laboratory capacity is 800 horses, which secrete distillate Vantage 2018.

Great test-drive: Aston Martin One-77 Part III

April 9, 2015 at 18:31

I must say that the One-77 is not a hypersensitive or capricious. Steering has a very fast response and rich feedback that is very similar to V12 Vantage. And if driving a Ferrari F12 you need some time to get used to it very sensitive management (steering ratio of 11.5: 1), the system is in the One-77 more intuitive and allows you to concentrate on getting the most out of the chassis and engine.

Great test-drive: Aston Martin One-77 Part II

April 5, 2015 at 18:31

It’s funny that cost option in the One-77 was the one and only – non-standard finish gearshift. But the price of such options depending on the material ranged from 15 to 40 thousand pounds.
While in the One-77’s roar of the exhaust system is much less pronounced than in some Italian models, however, it still sounds amazing. And it does not sound like the other modern Aston Martin: more racing, solid and instantly informs about the growth in turnover, we need only touch the accelerator pedal. Because of this, it seems that in the flywheel One-77 is made from paper.

Great test-drive: Aston Martin One-77 Part I

Aston Martin One-77… you simply cannot dislike it. Just think about it – each of its extravagant front wings for three weeks tapping mallet. Three weeks on one wing! And when it was brought to the car show, it made men weep for joy, and it made a race of opening their bottomless wallets…
The driver’s door is opened to the side and slightly up – as well as on the new DB9 or Vanquish. But not slowly and solidly, and flying away to the side as a leaky helium balloon. The inner panel is a continuous sheet of carbon fiber with a brilliant eye-catching bright red stitched loop color.
