2020 Aston Martin Vantage AMR - Limited Edition with a Manual Transmission
Only 200 AMRs will be sold, but the manual will become an option on the standard Vantage next year.
The Aston Martin Vantage AMR has a standard seven-speed manual transmission that was first used in the old V12 Vantage S.
Only 200 AMRs will be built, but the manual will become an option on the regular Vantage next year.
The AMR is 209 pounds lighter than the standard Vantage and gets unique design cues.
Last week, we told you that a new AMR version of the Aston Martin Vantage will have a manual transmission and that it will be "coming soon." Well, it turns out that "soon" is already here. Aston has revealed the Vantage AMR, and as we suspected, it uses a seven-speed manual transmission with a dogleg-style first gear.
The transmission was developed by Graziano and was first used in the V12 Vantage S from a few years ago. The racing-inspired dogleg setup means second through seventh gears are in a traditional H pattern, but first gear is down and to the left while reverse is up and to the left, the opposite of a traditional manual gearbox. It has what Aston calls Amshift, which is a rev-matching system that also allows for full-throttle upshifts; the system can be turned on or off. In addition to the gearbox, the AMR also gets a limited-slip differential that was developed by Aston's racing team.

2020 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante – 211-MPH GT Convertible
Aston Martin has chopped the top off its DBS Superleggera, creating what it says is "the ultimate open-top experience."
Aston Martin's new DBS Superleggera Volante is the convertible version of the fixed-roof DBS coupe.
It shares both the coupe's 715-hp V-12 engine and its 211-mph top speed.
The Volante costs almost $25,000 more than its coupe counterpart.
Have you been wanting a convertible Aston Martin but feel that the DB11 Volante's puny 503-hp V-8 and frankly disappointing 187-mph top speed aren't enough for you? Then get out your checkbook (or should it be chequebook?), because the DBS Superleggera Volante is here, and it's the fastest convertible that Aston Martin has ever made.
The droptop Volante shares its 715-hp twin-turbo 5.2-liter V-12 and eight-speed automatic transmission with the DBS Superleggera coupe, and the performance is nearly identical. Aston's claimed 3.5-second zero-to-62-mph time for the Volante is just 0.1 second slower than that of the coupe, and its 6.7-second zero-to-100-mph figure is 0.3 second slower. But when it comes to top speed—which a person of taste knows is the most important figure for any car—the Volante matches the coupe with a shocking 211-mph maximum. Aston also says that, thanks to some new aero trickery (and the DBS coupe's already slippery body), the Volante produces 390 pounds of downforce at its top speed, just seven pounds less than the coupe.

Aston Martin Vantage AMR Confirmed with a Manual Transmission
After years of promising, Aston Martin is finally putting a manual in the new Vantage.
A new Aston Martin Vantage AMR model is debuting soon, and it will have a manual transmission.
The Vantage is currently only available with an eight-speed automatic.
The manual will likely be the same seven-speed unit found in the previous-generation V12 Vantage S.
We've been told that the Aston Martin Vantage would be getting a manual transmission since before the new generation even debuted in late 2017, and it looks like it's finally happening. Aston posted a teaser image online that shows three pedals, with the clutch colored in lime green. The teaser also shows the AMR logo, which is Aston's recently created performance sub-brand, hinting that the manual transmission will be found in a new Vantage AMR model. (Well, more than a hint, as the hashtag #VantageAMR confirms it.)
The Vantage uses a version of Mercedes-AMG's twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8, which in AMG applications is paired only with an automatic transmission. Aston thus had to engineer a manual to fit all on its own, explaining why it has taken a few years. The gearbox will likely be the same dogleg seven-speed unit used in the previous-gen V12 Vantage S.
Expect the AMR to also get a number of styling tweaks, chief among them lime-green accents—an AMR signature. We wouldn't be surprised to see some chassis upgrades and a bit more power, too. The existing AMR models are pitched as the highest-performance versions of Aston's cars, so this Vantage should be no different.
We don't yet know if the Vantage AMR will be a limited-run car like the Rapide AMR and the previous Vantage AMR, or if it will be a regular production model like the new DB11 AMR. It's also possible the AMR will still be available with the standard Vantage's eight-speed automatic as an option. We should be finding out all the details in the very near future, as Aston says the Vantage AMR is "coming soon."

2020 Aston Martin Rapide E - 600-HP Electric Production Sedan
The 600-hp electric supersedan will do around 200 miles per charge, and just 155 will be built.
The Rapide E is Aston Martin's first electric car and is based on the standard Rapide sedan.
It has a 65.0-kWh battery pack and two rear-mounted electric motors than make 602 horsepower and 701 lb-ft of torque.
The Rapide E was co-developed with the Williams engineering firm, and just 155 will be produced.
Aston Martin's first electric car has been a long time coming. We initially learned about the Rapide E—then called the RapidE—in 2015 with the reveal of a concept co-developed with Williams. The announcement of a production run came in 2017, when we also got to drive it, and more details have been trickling out in the two years since. Now, finally, Aston Martin has revealed the production version of the Rapide E at the Shanghai auto show, and while there isn't much left to be surprised about, it's no less exciting.

First Look at the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato
Renderings give a tantalizing glimpse of the car with which Aston is celebrating its 100th anniversary.
This is the first look at the forthcoming DBS GT Zagato sports car; Aston Martin will be building 19.
Buyers will also get a second car, a Continuation version built by the company's Works division, with the pair priced just short of $8 million.
The finished car is expected to use the same turbocharged 5.2-liter V-12 as the DBS Superleggera on which it's based.
We told you about Aston's plans for a Zagato-themed two-for-one offer late last year, and now the British sports-car maker has released some renderings to hint at what the forthcoming DBS GT Zagato will look like when it appears next year.
Only 19 of the GT Zagatos will be produced, with each car sold with a what it's calling a Continuation model. That's a version of the original 1960 DB4 Zagato, which was the first time the British sports-car maker collaborated with the Italian carrozzeria of that name. The asking price is the equivalent of just over $7.9 million at current exchange rates.
Although obviously more figurative than literal at present, these sketches suggest that the finished DBS Zagato will play hard on many of the themes of previous Astons named Zagato. The most obvious of these is the "double bubble" roof, which these renderings suggest will be made from unpainted carbon. The design of the round vortex rear lights also seems to have been inspired by those of the last Zagato collaboration, the various Z versions of the Vanquish. Other interesting details include headlights pushed to the outer edge of the fenders, a huge front grille, and a dramatic cutoff to the rear profile. Many details are still to come, but we imagine the finished car will feature the door apertures that the sketches lack, since few Aston owners are likely to put up with the requirement for Dukes of Hazzard–style access through the side windows.

Aston Martin AM-RB 003 vs McLaren Senna – How Two Hypercars Measure Up
We compare these rival hypercars, but only hypothetically, as the Aston doesn't come out until 2021.
We compare specs on a pair of million-dollar cars, the McLaren Senna and a car tipped to be its rival, the Aston Martin AM-RB 003.
The AM-RB 003, which made its debut at the Geneva auto show earlier this month, was developed in part by the same person as the Senna: British racer Chris Goodwin.
Aston hasn't released a weight target for the 003, but we would be surprised if it could get close to the Senna's svelte figure.
Hypercar buyers have never had it so good. There's plenty of choice for those with the happy ability to spend around a million bucks on a car capable of pacing genuine race cars on track. Aston Martin's forthcoming entry in the segment is set to offer another compelling alternative. We've already told you about the AM-RB 003, which will be given a more traditional name before it goes on sale in 2021. We thought it would be interesting to look at it against the car that Aston's senior engineers cite as its principal benchmark rival, the McLaren Senna.
Of course, if you want a Senna but don't already have one, then it's already too late and you'll have to buy used. McLaren has already sold its full allocation of 500, despite a price of more than $960,000, and has built and delivered the bulk of these to owners. It has also just dropped images and details for the track-only GTR spinoff, but that one, too, has already sold out, despite a price of $1,200,000. Aston Martin says it plans to build 500 of the AM-RB 003, with price expected to be the equivalent of about $1,300,000 at current exchange rates. The good news is, it's not too late to get your name down for one; you can worry about how to afford it later on.

This Chase Scene From Quantum of Solace Is Still Sublimely Awesome
When we asked you to name every single James Bond car ever, it did my heart good to see so many of you chime in to stick up for 2008's Quantum of Solace. Nearly every review I've seen of Skyfall so far has mentioned what a "dud" or a "disaster" its prequel was, and I don't think that criticism was fair at all.
Sure, Quantum isn't a perfect movie. Its story is kind of all over the place. But there are a lot of things to love about it too, like Daniel Craig's general lethality from start to finish, bad guys that were detestable in a real world sense, a great set piece with the burning hotel at the end, a satisfying conclusion to the events in Casino Royale, and Gemma Arterton as Ms. Fields.
But my favorite part of the movie comes within the first three minutes when we're treated to one of the better car chases in Bond movie history. It's short, it's intense, it's brutal, and it's a lot of fun to watch.
Our hero is driving an Aston Martin DBS with a throaty V12 engine, while the bad guy vehicle of choice is an Alfa Romeo 159 with a 3.2-liter V6. Under normal circumstances that isn't even remotely a fair fight, except here there are two Alfas, their drivers have assault rifles, and the chase takes place on a winding, two-lane roadway in heavy traffic. Do not try this at home, kiddos.
It's such a desperate, frenetic, obstacle-laden chase, and through it all the Aston gets tore the fuck up. (This shouldn't surprise anyone since Daniel Craig's James Bond goes through Astons like normal people go through cigarettes.) The moment about 50 seconds in where Bond loses a door, spins into a wall and narrowly misses an oncoming truck? I still get chills seeing that.
Plus, the scene is awesome because it's made pretty clear that this DB9 has three pedals and a stick. An automatic for 007? Please.
Eventually Bond manages to dispatch the last Alfa using his rifle, after which he drives into town and nonchalantly opens the trunk to reveal his cargo — a tied up Mr. White, one of the baddies from the previous movie. "It's time to get out," he says. BAD ASS.

James Bond Is Reportedly Driving the Electric Aston Martin Rapide and We Just Have to Accept It
It’s been over 10 years since the Aston Martin DBS engine note blew me away in the opening car chase to 2008's Quantum of Solace and I’ve never forgotten it, but the new Bond movie is reportedly going to be much different, with Bond driving the upcoming electric Aston Martin Rapide.
Starting with the DB5 in 1964's Goldfinger, Bond has had a very long, off-and-on working relationship with Aston Martin. Daniel Craig’s portrayal of the character has driven the DB5, DBS, and the DB10, which previewed the eventual production version of the new Vantage.
British tabloid The Sun now reports that Bond won’t be driving any of the new noisy Aston Martins, though. Here’s a snip from the report...

Reports confirm James Bond is going electric | DriveTribe
J​ames Bond is perhaps one of the most loved, longest running movie franchises there is. As the world moves into an inevitable electric future, it’s only right that our beloved Bond does so too.
T​he upcoming film, that we now know has been given the working title of ‘Shatterhand’, will be directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga who is said to be ”an absolute treehugger”. It has also been said that the studio heads are pushing for the British spy to be a bit more eco-friendly.
I​n a recent interview a source told The Sun that the decision to give Bond an electric car in his movie was made by Fukunaga. To fans of the franchise this shouldn’t really come as a surprise, with characters like Q always coming up with new gadgets an electric car is the obvious next step as technology improves.
T​he car that will be used is said to be the limited edition Aston Martin Rapide E, the manufacturers first ever electric vehicle. It has been reported that only 155 will be built and they will cost a meaty £250,000 to purchase. In ‘Shatterhand’ the Rapide E is rumoured to play a big part in an ‘incredible action sequence‘.

Game changers: How McLaren, Aston and Lambo are re-writing the supercar rules | DriveTribe
Alex Goy is a freelance motoring journalist who has written for the likes of Motor1, Carfection and CNET.
Each week he will be taking a look at the biggest news in the car world, right here on DriveTribe.
****
There was a motor show on this week. Geneva usually sees the great and the good of the supercar world unzip their pants and grab a ruler, and this year seemed no different. Here’s what you should care about from there, and the wider world.
MCLAREN PLANS TO CHANGE SOME RULES
McLaren, not content with revealing a billion and seven new models before the end of the decade, has decided to make up new rules about what it means to be a Grand Tourer.
A good GT needs to have space for people and stuff, enough grunt to cross vast swathes of land in a matter of hours – and look the absolute nuts.
McLaren wants its new GT to add ‘a level of agility never experienced before in this segment’ as well. Basically: McLaren’s going to make a softer car for people who need to travel.
ASTON MARTIN’S BOLD NEW LOOK
When Andy Palmer took over at Aston Martin the line up looked… identical. No bad thing, but it meant a prole in a Vantage could be mistaken for an Oligarch in a Vanquish, and that would not do.
So Palmer made it his mission to ensure his generation of Astons looked suitably stand-outy. The DB 11, Vantage, DBS, and Valkyrie are all easy to tell apart, but the cars unveiled at Geneva? Less so.
The Valkyrie, AM-RB 003, and Vanquish vision are all remarkably similar. Still, bet they’ll be ace to steer.
AVENTA…PHWOAR*
The winner of the pants/ruler competition at Geneva surely has to be Lamborghini (Bugatti gets an honourable mention for making an unattainable megacar, mind) and its Aventador SVJ Roadster. 760 horses, 6.5-litre N/A V12, just shy of £400k – and it actually looks good in metallic beige. Stellar stuff.
*I do no apologise for this clearly amazing pun
THANKS, CHUM, AND GOODBYE
Sad tidings to round out this week’s news review. Alex Mills, better known as Viper007Bond, passed away this week after a battle with leukaemia.
The 34-year-old wasn’t just some bloke off the internet, but the mind behind the Final Gear Top Gear/Fifth Gear forum/fan/download site. Final Gear was kicking around before iPlayer, Netflix, and all that kinda stuff, and it meant fans from all over the world could watch their favourite car show easily. There are arguments that without Final Gear, and Alex, the three big names behind this very site wouldn’t be as famous as they are, such was its impact. Go well, friend, and thank you.

The New York City Bond Experience – The Suits of James Bond
This weekend I was a member of a New York City James Bond tour led by the renowned David Zaritsky of The Bond Experience, including a visit to SPYSCAPE to see the new DRIVEN: 007xSPYSCAPE as well special visits as to Turnbull & Asser, N.Peal and Tom Ford.
The tour started at the SPYSCAPE museum in Midtown Manhattan on the corner of 8th Avenue and W 55th Street, where the DRIVEN: 007xSPYSCAPE exhibition recently opened. This exhibit is focused on the history of the Aston Martin DB5 thoughout the Bond films from Goldfinger through Spectre. Eon Productions archivist Meg Simmonds, who was involved with curating this exhibit, gave us a tour of the exhibit to provide us with some additional background on how the car was used in the films as well as about how the exhibition was put together, but there is no shortage of information in the exhibit.
The beautifully curated exhibit breaks down the car’s gadgets and includes a model of the car blown-up in Skyfall. Sadly, there are no Bond clothes at the exhibit so you will need to wear your own, but it is a fascinating place to see quintessential Bond design and learn about the iconic car behind-the-scenes.

The Coolest New Cars For 2019 – Forbes
Though sport-utility vehicles and pickup trucks now account for the lion's share of new-vehicle sales, the reports of the passenger car's death have been greatly exaggerated.

Aston Martin DBS Superleggera.
Aston Martin brings back and combines two famed nameplates from its storied history for its new flagship coupe, the DBS Superleggera. Gorgeously styled with fluidly flowing bodywork crafted from carbon fiber, it’s 2+2 interior is equally appealing, with front-seat occupants treated to sports seats upholstered in supple “aromatic” leather and Alcantara.
A 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine generates a mighty 715 horsepower and, assisted by a performance-enhanced eight-speed automatic transmission, can launch the car to 62 mph in a sudden 3.4 seconds and hit a terrifying top speed of 211 mph. Riding on 21-inch rims and Pirelli P-Zero performance tires, and with assorted performance-enhancing systems at hand, the car is engineered to hug the corners as tightly as a toddler with a teddy bear.

The 8 most powerful cars coming in 2019 | DriveTribe
The Aston Martin Valkyrie will have 1,160bhp, Aston has confirmed. One thousand of those horses are generated by a 6.5-litre V12, with not a turbocharger (or supercharger) in sight. Peak power is developed at 10,500rpm. It’s utterly astonishing – this is a car for both road and track, remember – but what’s even more astonishing is that power outputs in four figures are not that unusual any more…
The fact is, to be taken seriously as a hypercar these days you seem to need at least 1,000 horsepower, and preferably a weight as close as possible to a tonne for that magic 1bhp/kg power/weight ratio.
So welcome to the 1,000bhp club… here’s our look at some of the latest members.

Ranked: The 10 most exciting cars of the Geneva Motor Show 2019 | DriveTribe
Motor shows have had a bad wrap of late. Increasingly, they’re accused of being overly expensive and largely pointless. Manufacturers are reducing their efforts or not showing up at all, leaving shows like Paris at the tail end of last year with entire halls left empty.
But Geneva is different.
This is the biggest motor show in the world, and it’s still alive and well. It seems that everyone and their mums have brought along something new and exciting this year. There’s plenty of cutting-edge futuristic tech on display, as well as lots of really, really fast stuff. Of course, subjectively ranking newly revealed cars in order of ‘exciting-ness’ is an entirely pointless exercise. So... here's my list of the 10 most exciting cars from Geneva 2019.
1) KOENIGSEGG JESKO
Why is this the most exciting car at Geneva 2019? Surely it’s just another typically mad hypercar from those Swedish blokes who exclusively build mad hypercars. Business as usual, no? Sort of. Except this one is a bit special - because it could very well be the world's first 300mph roadcar.
That’s not confirmed yet. Christian Von Koenigsegg says the car has managed it in simulators, and he’s confident it will do it in real life. And this is not a man who makes unsubstantiated claims - this is the man behind the Agera RS - the current fastest car in the world.
So what’s new? Well, same old 5-litre twin-turbo V8 except it’s lighter now, and revs higher. Meaning you get 1,578bhp. And a massive wing. Oh, and it’s named after his dad, so it’s adorable as well as terrifying.

Making sense of the new Aston Martin range | DriveTribe
I don't think anyone can argue that Aston Martin have been on fine form of late with the Valkyrie and the Valkyrie AMR Pro cars making petrolheads around the world simultaneously drool.
As if they weren't enough, Aston Martin have gone and dropped two new designs on us at this year's Geneva Motor Show and they follow in the same salivating trend.
Firstly, we had the AM-RB 003 revealed to us as a 'son of Valkyrie' style concept and this was quickly followed by the Aston Martin Vanquish Vision Concept as the first production mid-engined supercar from the brand.
Before we get into McLaren territory where we have 78 models released in 12 minutes, I wanted to quickly break down the four gorgeous Aston Martin mid-engined powerhouses into a nice neat order. You're welcome.

Aston Martin Vanquish Vision Concept Has Ferrari and McLaren in Its Sights
A bold new direction for the Vanquish, and we'd be surprised if it doesn't match its rivals' horsepower numbers.
The Aston Martin Vanquish Vision concept has the Ferrari F8 Tributo and the McLaren 720S firmly in its sights.
The concept is not built using a carbon-fiber tub like the hypercars from the same brand, but a bonded aluminum structure like front-engined models.
It will be powered by a new Aston Martin–developed turbocharged V-6 engine, which we will see first in the production version of the AM-RB 003.
The British like to joke that you spend ages waiting for a bus—doubtless in the rain—and then three turn up at once. It appears the same is true for mid-engined Aston Martins, with the company's revelation at the Geneva auto show that it is planning two separate new models to follow on from the work it began with the Valkyrie. The company's stand at the Swiss auto show contained a near-production version of the AM-RB 003, which, like the Valkyrie, is being co-developed with Red Bull Racing, and a further-out look at the slightly less rabid car that is set to become the new Vanquish.

Aston Martin AM-RB 003 Hypercar - New V-6 Hybrid Powertrain
The near-production prototype will get an Aston-developed turbo V-6 with hybrid assistance, the first in-house powerplant since the 1960s.
A mid-engined hypercar, the AM-RB 003 is a prototype with a production version expected in 2021.
The car gets flexible wing elements, aerospace industry style, so the rear wing's shape can be altered rapidly to adjust aerodynamic loads.
If you missed a chance to get the $3.2 million Valkyrie, this car will go (to about 50 buyers) for a mere $1.3 million or so.
If you just missed out on one of the 150 slots of the $3.2 million Aston Martin Valkyrie—the Adrian Newey fever dream with ambitions to be the world's fastest road car—then here is some consolation. The AM-RB 003, freshly unveiled in near-production form at the Geneva Auto Show, is another mid-engined hypercar being jointly developed by Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing. (Don't worry, the gawky code will be substituted for a more conventional name ahead of sales starting in 2021; if you’re wondering, 002 is the track-only Valkyrie AMR Pro.) While it won't be quite as fast or extreme as the Valkyrie, a charge that can be leveled at any wheeled vehicle this side of an LMP1 racer, we're promised that the 003 will still be one of the quickest cars on the market.

The Aston Martin AM-RB 003 and Vanquish Aim Right at Ferrari
The Geneva Motor Show is often a parade of supercars, a place for the robber barons and tech overlords who were just at Davos a month ago to cross some items of their shopping lists. And Aston Martin, long a purveyor of expensive GT and sports cars, is using Geneva to go hard on the mid-engine supercar market—and right after Ferrari and McLaren. With V6 power, no less.
Aston Martin had several key debuts at Geneva today, in addition to the wild V12 Aston Martin Valkyrie we’ve all known about for some time. First up with stuff today, there’s the Aston Martin AM-RB 003. If that name sounds familiar, it’s not far off what the Valkyrie was originally called.
This will be a limited-production hypercar that clearly draws design, tech, body and structure influence from the Valkyrie—think of the way McLaren does things—but ditches the V12 for a turbocharged hybrid V6 setup instead.
Aston Martin says it incorporates “concepts and technologies taken directly from F1 and applied to the epoch-making Aston Martin Valkyrie, providing it with performance to meet and surpass the performance demands of existing top-end hypercar rivals.” Neat!

Here's the Aston Martin Valkyrie's confirmed performance figures | DriveTribe
Aston Martin has officially unveiled performance figures for the Valkyrie, the upcoming hybrid-powered hypercar from the luxury British manufacturer.
The Valkyrie uses a Cosworth-built naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine, along with a battery hybrid power system that when combined, create an astonishing 1,160 horsepower.
The 6.5-litre V12 engine is said to be as exciting and high-revving as the F1TM engines of the 1990s, but with modern upgrades such as a lighter, better designed setup.
The Valkyrie's engine will rev to a whopping 11,000 rpm and can produce 740Nm at 7,000 rpm, giving this car some serious launching power. However, the added battery system adds even more power to the Valkyrie.
