The McLaren 650S Has Just Made The 12C Obsolete

Carlton Boyce / February 18, 2014

The McLaren 650S, hastily unveiled yesterday after an injudicious leak by The Sunday Times (something we deplore as we had a sneak preview of the 650S at McLaren’s HQ in Woking a couple of months ago and managed to keep quiet about it…), is faster, better handling, and even more beautiful than the 12C it doesn’t replace...

Jaguar Project 7 vs Aston Martin CC100 Speedster - Side-By-Side Comparison of Britain's Wannabe Racers

James Allen / July 10, 2013

Long-term readers of our blog will remember that, a few months ago, Aston Martin revealed a very special concept car as part of its centenary celebrations: the achingly gorgeous, DBR1-inspired CC100 Speedster.

James Allen / May 20, 2013

Earlier this year, as part of the company’s 100th anniversary, Aston Martin announced it would be unveiling an array of new, bespoke machinery in order to mark the occasion.

So far, though, all that’s materialised are a few ‘Centenary Edition’ variants of the V8 Vantage, DB9, Rapide and Vanquish models.
