Founded in 1895, Autocar is the world's oldest car magazine. It thrives today like never before as a vibrant, authoritative weekly packed with car news and reviews, including the most comprehensive road tests in the business. This book collects together all the best Autocar material about the fantastic 'new-generation' Aston Martins.
Aston Martin has survived as a high-quality, low-volume prestige car manufacturer throughout the post-war highs and lows of the motor industry and, in spite of having been on the brink of extinction several times, flourishes today as one of the world's most respected and desired automotive brands. In the early 1990s, under Ford ownership, Aston Martin began a resurgence, buoyed by a stunning range of new models featuring cutting-edge engineering, muscular performance and fabulous styling, picking up many cues from the marque's illustrious past.
As a fitting acknowledgement to the revitalised status of Aston Martin, another British icon, James Bond, returned to the big screen to battle his foes behind the wheel of one of Newport Pagnell's finest, the appropriately named Vanquish.
Starting with the DB7 - the car that started Aston Martin's exciting modern era when released in 1994 - the material in this book includes road tests, comparison tests and stunning features from some of the best automotive writers in the business, accompanied by superb photography. Numerous DB7 derivatives are featured, including Vantage, Volante and Zagato versions, along with the glorious V12-engined flagship Vanquish - the fastest-ever production Aston Martin. The story is brought up to date with the hugely successful DB9, the V8 Vantage - today's `entry-level' model, regarded by Autocar as the best of the lot - and the latest DBS. Full specifications and statistics are provided for each model, including Autocar's unrivalled road-test performance data.
This book is a superb reference source and an engaging read for all Aston Martin enthusiasts and fans of authoritative, entertaining automotive writing.
