Take your favorite classic car and fit it with a modern EV powertrain. That’s exactly what Aston Martin has done with a 1970 DB6 MkII Volante. The reversible “cassette” powertrain concept is still sympathetic to the original car. Aston Martin’s Heritage models are now part of their overall electrification strategy. Here’s a lovely idea, and I mean that both figuratively as well as literally. Take a cool old car, in this case an Aston Martin 1970 DB6 MkII Volante, take out the old drivetrain, ...

SS1000 Carbon: A rapid Ducati 900 SS from Moscow

We don’t see many customs from Russia. But Moscow-based Birdie Customs and their founder Ilya are doing their best to remedy that, with a slow but steady stream of classy performance customs. Birdie’s Ducati 900 SS knocked us out a year ago, and they’ve just returned with an even faster 900 SS, built in a different style and taking on board lessons learnt with the previous Duc.
