I was out on the bike this morning in preparation for a few up coming events. It was a beautiful morning and there were plenty of cyclists out making for a great buzz. There were also a few guys with a different idea for the morning and they were hitting the tarmac a lot faster than us in some nice cars. On a small windy coastal road a stunning, brand new 2016 SL400 overtook us in a heartbeat, it’s V6 blaring past. We were ooggling it as it went past but then we hear a much more satisfying roar coming up behind us hot on the heels of the Merc. An 11 year old Aston Martin DB9 throttles past with the most beautiful sound coming from its 5.9L V12 engine.
Never mind the Merc now, even as an 11 year old car that Aston tearing by made my day. What a sound!
That’s the thing about Astons, they never fail to impress and they always have that covetable appeal whether the looks, the sound or just plain because it’s an Aston Martin.
Last month we were enthralled with the announcement of the DB11. Video Below the break.

Absolutely cannot wait for this!
Gran Turismo Sport is the newly announced, upcoming addition to the series. Due in November the new game is much anticipated as the brand literally holds the cornerstone for automotive racing games.
We grew up playing all of the earlier GTs and have been praying for a PS4 GT since the PS4 was announced.
Looking like a complete start from scratch game the attention to detail appears to be endless if the spectacular trailer is anything to go by.
Check out some awesome screenshots and a trailer after the jump. Continue reading “GRAN TURISMO is back! – Trailer”
We all know the crossover market has been going mad the last few years and every car maker has been jumping on the bandwagon. Mercedes released the GLC not so long ago and now AMG has gotten their awesome little tweaking, horsepower-creating hands on it.
Behold the AMG GLC 43.
Twin-turbo 3L V6 animal with 363 horses and lots of torque. It doesnt look too bad either… for a mercedes.
Did you know it has been 10 years since the Audi A5 hit the market? Ya, I didn’t either… well, it will be ten in 2017, but the new model is previewed already. It really doesn’t seem like we have had this car for a decade considering it still looks fresh and sprightly. There must be some great deals going on original 2007 models, albeit with a fair few miles on the clock.
We’ve been admiring A5’s for years and while the rest of the Audi lineup has been
enjoying refreshes and facelifts the A5 hasn’t really had anything. Some would say they were working Continue reading “2017 Audi A5”
Apparently, according to a leaked source, a new version of Driveclub is going to be released for PS4 which will be VR compatible, just in time for the launch of Sonys Playstation VR system.
We’ve been very excited about the up and coming new Gran Turismo game and have talked about the hope of them including a VR mode in GT however we feel like this is unlikely. GT usually focuses on it’s core offerings and we can’t imagine them jumping on the VR bandwagon straight away.
However we are craving a VR racing game and having played Driveclub for PS4 since it’s release we’re happy enough in the hope that the next Driveclub will be VR compatible. It’s a pretty good game. We just can’t wait to experience the above view n 360degrees with a steering wheel, on the couch in (almost) real life graphics. Bring. It. On.
This is a damn pretty truck. We’re going through a bit of a mega truck craving phase at the moment so we got really excited when we saw this. The original Scout was pretty good looking anyway but the guys at Anything Scout have really done a fab job bringing this one to the next level. Rebuilt on a Wrangler Chassis and with a 480BHP V8 its really ready to take on your next trip to the supermarket.
The new version of Top Gear was met with plenty of trepidation and fear that it would take the masterpiece that Top Gear had been crafted into by the Clarkson, May and Hammond and run it into the ground.
If you saw episode 4 you saw the new Aston Martin Vulcan being hammered around by Chris Harris and it was amazing. The car is incredible, Chris certainly knows his stuff, and the cinematography in the Vulcan film was stunning and edgy. We were left wanting more action of the Vulcan so check out the video above. The New Top Gear has officially levelled up.
The first couple of episodes were judged and critiqued harshly and totally compared to the old format of the show. People didn’t like it. However now, 4 episodes in the aura has changed and the consensus is that Top Gear is good again! The new format is fresh, the new presenters are doing a good job, even Mr. Evans isn’t too annoying.
Now as we enjoy the next few episodes of Top Gear we also await the Grand Tour on Amazon . The only thought now though is that The GT will seem very dated and tired if it’s just the same larks the 3 lads were usually up to. Time will tell.
