Istanbul based Beyzacases has just released their luxury mobile accessories range at CES this year. Inspired by the ultimate British supercar, Aston Martin ($100 USD), the range of smartphone and tablet cases is said to have taken design cues from the elegant form and shape of Aston Martin’s famous radiator grid, but what makes them exclusive is craftsmanship. The Aston Martin range is handcrafted from the finest full grain Alcantara leather used in Aston Martin interiors.

The Rapide was already one of the fastest four-doors around, but if the standard model didn't quite do it for you under the hood, meet the Aston Martin Rapide S ($TBA). Still powered by a 6.0L V12 engine, the S offers 550 hp — 80 more than the prior version — and boasts a 0-60 mph time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph. The car also sits 19 mm lower than before, and thanks to a new Adaptive Damping System, can ensure you've got the right suspension setup for the a typical drive, a sporty drive, or the track. Thankfully, however, the sleek body has barely been touched, with a larger single grille and tweaked decklid rounding out the changes.

In anticipation of the firm’s upcoming model the Vanquish (unveiled earlier this year), Aston Martin has released this short video of the gorgeous new car in action. Shot in the flowing hills of Tuscany, the new video features the upcoming grand-tourer tackling curves with aplomb, all while looking undeniably breathtaking. Shot by AM’s favorite Rene Staud, the short feature showcases the latest evolution of Aston’s muscular design language. With more curves than the outgoing model, the DBS, this new Vanquish comes across as more of a brawny bruiser than its lithe predecessor. Enjoy.

Back in March, several months ahead of the official unveiling of the new Vanquish coupe, Aston Martin invited British car magazine EVO to take a seat in one of the pre-production prototypes of the V12-powered sports car in northern Sweden. The trip including a ride at a continental testing facility, which as we learn, is carved on the surface of a frozen lake every winter. The newest Aston Martin model makes use of a 5.9-litre V12 engine cranking out 565hp (573PS) and 620Nm (457 lb-ft) of torque for a 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint time of 4.1 seconds and a maximum velocity of 295km/h (183mph). Enjoy.

The unveiling of the new Aston Martin Vanquish sports coupe this week means that there's also a Volante (that's Aston Martin talk for convertible) coming our way. However, since that won't be happening now, British racing driver and television presenter Tiff Needell chose the current DBS Volante to battle the Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster. The open-top DBS sports a 5.9-liter V12 that's good for 510-ponies (517PS) and 570Nm (420 lb-ft) while the SLS AMG Roadster makes do with a 6.2-liter V8 pushing out 563hp (571PS) and 650Nm (479 lb-ft). Enjoy.

After an early image leak, Aston Martin has officially pulled the cover back on its revived roadster, the Vanquish. The British luxury automaker reports that the Vanquish is set to succeed the DBS, meeting many of its predecessor’s lofty supercar expectations, including a massive 5.9-liter V12 engine good for over 560 horsepower. That engine will ride on an updated version of the DBS’s aluminum and carbon fiber chassis (giving the front end a 13% weight reduction), and will feature ventilated carbon ceramic disc brakes and a brand new Launch Control system — the latter of which should come in handy towards getting the Vanquish to 60mph in a mere four seconds. Enjoy.

While powertrain and pricing information have yet to be released, we do get a brief glimpse at the spectacular quilted leather interior and wrapped console. The DBS Ultimate is expected to be available in three color options, all likely to cost a small fortune. [See More]
