ASTON MARTIN

 in 

With nearly a century of history, Aston Martin has developed into an automotive icon, a marque synonymous with luxury, heritage and authentic craftmanship. Alongside these core values comes passion, passion about the cars we produce and a passion shared by our enthusiastic owners. All of our models are, and will continue to be hand-built and bespoke, using high technology processes within a very modern environment.

Remaining at the forefront of contemporary manufacturing, every car produced embodies design and engineering excellence. Renowned around the world, we enter the next decade with the promise of radical innovation and change, without losing the core qualities that make our strong, independent British brand so widely revered

The New DB9 is the latest incarnation of a classic model bloodline that sits at the heart of the Aston Martin range. The ‘DB’ moniker has adorned some of Aston Martin’s most iconic cars, a badge that signifies engineering excellence and the highest quality of craftsmanship.

With over fourteen individual models or derivatives having borne the ‘DB’ marque, we look at the provenance of the name and profile some of these historic models.

 

RAPIDE S

Rapide S features an all new design and an all new AM11 engine. That’s not all, the most powerful and luxurious Rapide in history has seen us develop our world-renonwed VH architecture even further.

Constructed from lightweight aluminium and bonded with sophisticated epoxy resin, Rapide S utilises the latest iteration of Aston Martin’s unique engineering philosophy. Adapted and improved for the original Rapide, Rapide S sees a further evolution. By combining many of the technical innovations developed in our Ultimate GT, Vanquish, is delivered a sports car architecture of unrivalled stability and rigidity.

 

NEW VANQUISH

Clothing an engine of such immense power required a body of phenomenal rigidity and razor-sharp agility. There was only one material they could use to achieve this level of performance – aerospace engineered carbon-fibre.

Every body-panel is constructed from the most advanced carbon available, producing a staggering strength-to-weight ratio and ensuring Vanquish is the pinnacle of a century of engineering expertise.
