Building Your McLaren Speedtail: Like Savile Row With Horsepower!

The McLaren Speedtail was recently revealed to future owners at a private event. The Speedtail is the first of 18 new cars under the company’s Track25 business plan. It’s the fastest car in the automaker’s history. Now it’s arguably the most personalized.  I think this all started with the McLaren F1. I remember buyers could get their name woven into the carbon fiber, if they so desired. You know, something along the lines of “This McLaren F1 made especially for Sir Manfredjinsinjin” or someth...

Concept Cars That Never Made It: Vol. 2

Concept Cars That Never Made It is a five-part series that documents production concept automobiles from years and eras ago. Some are bewildering, while others are beautiful, and the only thing common between them is the fact that somewhere down the line, these concepts remained just figments of imagination and creative spirit, and never saw the light of day. Check out the ongoing series here.Holden Hurricane (1969) Unveiled back in 1969, the Hurricane was Australian carmaker (and a GM-owned bra...

LEGO made James Bond’s Aston Martin, complete with working ejector seat

There’s a new Aston Martin DB5 on the market and it’s everything you’d expect from the vehicle used by James Bond in the movie Goldfinger. The only drawback: It’s too small to drive. LEGO has created a replica of the Aston Martin DB5 used by super spy James Bond, but in miniature. The 1964 sports car, which measures in at 13 inches long, is loaded with features, including a detailed interior with a concealable radar tracker and a door compartment with a telephone. There’s other functioning gadg...

A new clue arises in the search for the “lost” James Bond Aston Martin

A replica of DP/216/1, on display at the Miami Auto Museum. Photo by Myles Kornblatt. For 21 years, the fate of an Aston Martin DB5 carrying chassis tag DP/216/1 has remained a mystery, ever since the car was stolen from a Florida airport hangar in the dead of night. Recently, though, Art Recovery International (ARI) received an anonymous tip on the whereabouts of the DB5, best known as the “effects car” from 1965’s Goldfinger. Could the Aston Martin be part of a Middle East collection, instead...

“GoldenEye” Aston Martin DB5 sells to New York City spy museum for $2.6 million

GoldenEye, released in 1995 as the 17th film in the James Bond franchise, marked the return of the superspy’s beloved Aston Martin DB5 after a 30-year absence. Though no longer gadgetry-bedecked like the DB5s featured in Goldfinger and Thunderball, the GoldenEye DB5 still performed admirably against a younger opponent, scoring another victory for old age and treachery. Last Friday, the 1965 Aston Martin DB5 used in...

Bond’s DB5 from “Goldeneye” to hit the auction block in July

All images courtesy of Marc Wilmot. There are few things as associated with the James Bond character as the Aston Martin DB5. Okay, there are the women, the booze, the gadgets, and the totally unrealistic physical prowess of a seemingly unkillable fictional person who is really a glorified civil servant. Different cars have come and gone from the Bond universe, but even as the movie franchise was being wooed by BMW, which introduced the world to its pocket-sized Z3 roadster via Bond with Golden...

Concept Design for a Radically Different Fire Engine

Fire engines are large by necessity. They're also often needed in a hurry, and in a traffic-choked city like New York their size becomes a liability that slows them down.To address that issue, Russian inventor Semenov Dahir Kurmanbievich came up with this crazy concept. (Warning--turn your speakers down or off. The video's unnecessary music bed is the absolute shittiest song I have ever heard in my life.) Notice that the firefighters initially appear to be using those Elide Fire Balls, whic...

2018 Range Rover Sport Gets Significant Design And Tech Updates

New engines, more tech – lots of new tech – and lots of nips, tucks, and styling re-dos here and there. Range Rover uses the word “transformation” a lot in their press materials, and even though that’s an ever so British way to put things, it’s not far off from what’s actually happening with the 2...
