Aston Martin's Lagonda marque unveils All-Terrain Concept

Aston Martin’s Lagonda luxury marque is confirming its plans to launch an all-new crossover in the near future by unveiling a new concept at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Dubbed as the Lagonda All-Terrain Concept, this show car essentially serves as a preview to the brand’s upcoming crossover.

According to Lagonda, the All-Terrain Concept is an ultra-stylish, luxurious, all-electric emission-free vehicle. This marks a new step into the brand’s goal of becoming the first luxury electric automotive brand in the world. The All-Terrain Concept basically builds on the designs and materials in the Lagonda Vision Concept that was unveiled last year. While the Vision Concept was design to be driven purely on the road, the All-Terrain Concept pushes the boundary by showing that a luxurious drive could also done off the road.

While the exterior of the Lagonda Vision Concept was inspired by the Concorde, the Lagonda All-Terrain Concept, on the other hand, was initially influenced world of the super yacht. This allowed the design team at Lagonda to give the All-Terrain Concept a futuristic surfacing as well as forms and shapes seemingly created by “planetary forces of gravity fields.”

2019 Geneva Motor Show: Aston Martin presents the AM-RB 003

It looks like Aston Martin will soon be following up its Valkyrie and Valkyrie AMR Pro offerings with a third hypercar. This comes as Aston Martin presented the design concept for the new AM-RB 003 at the 2019 Geneva Motor Showin Switzerland.

Its terms of styling and aerodynamics, the new AM-RB 003 shares the same fundamental philosophy with the Aston Martin Valkyrie. This is evident on the pronounced front keel and large rear diffuser. In addition, the AM-RB 003 features a variable airfoil that spans across the rear wing. This variable airfoil is made possible by a new technology from FlexSys Inc. – FlexFoil.

With this new system in place, the downforce AM-RB 003 can be changed without changing the physical angle of the entire element. This new system also virtually gets rid of the turbulence and the associated drag increase in present active wing designs.

Aston Martin AMR brings Vantage and Rapide concepts to the 2017 Geneva Motor Show

Just like the previous years, the Geneva Motor Show has been a host to various concept debuts. This year is not an exception. Joining the lineup is Aston Martin debuting its new AMR sub-brand, and along with it are two of its fiercest concepts – the Vantage AMR Pro and Rapide AMR. Before its big reveal, quite a handful of details on the AMR have been gathered first-hand from Aston’s Gaydon, UK headquarters.

Aston Martin Chief Designer Miles Nurnberger describes the AMR as a philosophy of the British automaker’s “way of racing”. Aston Martin Racing is focused on the automaker’s constant search for (racing) success while Aston Martin focuses on the aesthetics of its sports and supercars. AMR functions in a way that it combines these missions in order to produce “more extreme versions of Aston Martin’s core lineup.”

This constant race for supremacy goes back to the One-77, a perfect example of the collaboration between aesthetics and performance, featuring carbon fiber and saddle leather, an unusual mix of materials. It is a collision of different forces, but in a luxurious way. This idea has been further used on the CC100, GT8, GT12 and Vulcan, according to Nurnberger.

French artist Adrien Fuinel renders Aston Martin RR supercar concept

Soon, Aston Martin will be mesmerizing us with the follow-up to its Vulcan track-focused supercar – the AM-RB 001, a hypercar jointly developed by the British carmaker and Red Bull. The Vulcan and the AM-RB 001 are a duo of super performance cars from Aston Martin that impresses as a splendid work of art and a product of advanced engineering.

However, there is an automotive designer from Lyon, France who thinks that a third super performance car should be added to the duo – making up a new holy trinity for McLaren. This designer – named Adrien Fuinel – has created a visual rendition of the new (but not official) supercar from Aston Martin, the Aston Martin RR supercar concept. This rendition was then uploaded into his account at Behance, a Web site that allows for showcasing and discovering creative works.

At first look, you wouldn’t believe that the RR supercar concept is an Aston Martin. Well, that could be because -- aside from the front end and a ground clearance derived from the Vulcan and a few styling cues -- the curves and the body work of the RR supercar concept are not typical of an Aston Martin. But since this is a concept, maybe we can forgive Fuinel for that.

Aston Martin together with their longtime Italian partner for design Zagato are proclaiming their fifth and latest collaborative exhibition vehicle, the Vanquish Zagato Concept, which was ceremonially launched on May 21-22 2016 at the illustrious Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in Lake Como, Italy.

The British automotive and Italian design companies have worked together on previous cars over a period of more than 50 years. The Vanquish Zagato Concept continues this combination of Aston Martin's heralded performance car engineering and technology with Zagato's standout aesthetic philosophy.

All of their previous cars, beginning with the legendary 1960 DB4 GT Zagato on to the 2011 V12 Vantage Zagato, have prominently featured the markers of Aston Martin’s evolution in design, and paired these with Zagato’s signature motorsport-inspired style ethos. It is no wonder that their four past collaborative efforts were all characterized as having unique, progressive and pioneering designs.

When Aston Martin Bulldog was first conceptualized, it was meant to have a very limited production of 25 cars. Ultimately though, only one was built making it a truly one-of-a-kind work of art and an engineering marvel.

Aston Martin hired William Towns to design the car and gave it a code name DP K9, in reference to a character in the British show Doctor Who. It was considered unusual being a left-hand-drive car and UK-built.

Its eye-catching gull-wing door, digital instruments, the tv console at the center showing the rear view, and its low height of only 43 inches (1.1 meters) are the car’s most outstanding features. Its 5.3L twin-turbo V8 engine can deliver 700bhp (522kW), propelling the Bulldog to a verified top speed of 191 mph (307 km/h) in its first test drive in late 1979.

Aston Martin’s DBX Concept was a total surprise when it arrived at this year’s Geneva Motor Show and according to the company it was created to defy conventional thinking about the luxury GT segment and reach out a more diverse global audience. DBX Concept was imagined by Chief Creative Office Marek Reichman and his team at the Aston Martin global headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire and is a clear signal that the British brand is looking to expand its existing lineup with a new model.

Capable to accommodate four persons, the all-electric DBX Concept showcases not only cutting edge engineering but also a major evolution of Aston Martin’s design language. The front end of the vehicle is dominated by a reinterpretation of the well-known Aston Martin grille, stylish LED headlights as well as a front bumper that completes the design.

The thrill-seeking and highly popular PlayStation 3 racing game Gran Turismo 6 (GT6) will soon have a new GT racer from the United Kingdom on its virtual tracks – the Aston Martin DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo. GT6 gamers would be able to download the Aston Martin DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo in July 2014, following its global debut at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Nissan has unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show a new concept vehicle which design and advance technology provides a glimpse of what customers can expected from Nissan’s next generation of crossovers. This new showcar – the all-new new Nissan IMQ concept vehicle – could be considered as an amalgamation of Japanese heritage with modern human-centric technology.

Design to cater to the European market, the new Nissan IMQ concept boasts of electrified propulsion, although the car itself isn't an electric vehicle. It features the next generation of e-POWER, which a 100-percent electric motor drive system allows for instant, linear acceleration. This system – designed to deliver 250 kW of max output and 700 Nm of peak torque -- is an evolution of the e-POWER technology found in the Nissan Note and Serena models in Japan. The new system directs output via a new multi-motor all-wheel-drive system. By combining e-POWER and AWD, the IMQ concept could excel even in low-grip conditions.

Aside from the next generation of the e-POWER, the new IMQ comes fitted an advanced prototype version of Nissan's ProPILOT driving assistance system and the carmaker’s Invisible-to-Visible technology that was revealed at the CES 2019. This new Invisible-to-Visible (I2V) technology allows drivers see around corners, as well as visualize information about traffic jams and determine optional routes.

Wrapped in “Solar Sky” paint finish, the exterior of the new Audi Q4 e-tron concept is only constrained by its compact dimensions pegged at 4.59 meters in length, 1.90 meters in width and 1.61 meters in height, with a wheelbase of 2.77 meters. It is almost impossible not to indentify the Q4 e-tron concept as an Audi, as the prototype is marked by on the front end by Singleframe with the four rings.

Furthermore, it is also fairly easy to distinguish the concept as an electric Audi e-tron as it features upright octagonal frame instead of a traditional radiator grille. Large inlets can be found extending from below the concept’s two matrix LED headlights to the front apron.
