Aston Martin Unveils New DB11

Aston Martin unveiled their next vehicle, the DB11, at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. After the unveiling of the DB10 last year, which was made exclusively for the James Bond film “Spectre,” Aston Martin fans were excited to see a car which they could take to the streets.

The DB11 will feature the first turbocharged engine in the DB line, with a 5.2 liter v12 engine. It is said to achieve 600 horsepower and be able to burst from 0-62 mph in 3.9 seconds.

Aesthetically speaking, the DB11 is a truly beautiful looking vehicle. It’s sleek and sport design is a joy to look at. The light and agile vehicle has earned the label of “most efficient and dynamically gifted” DB model ever, so fans of the brand sure have a lot to look forward to.

Aston Martin has priced the vehicle at $212,000 and is said to have received over one thousand advanced orders from customers who were able to get an early look at the vehicle. As one of the only truly independent luxury car makers left, Aston Martin has high hopes for this car to become a success.

McLaren 650s vs. Drone

Nothing says 21st century like a Drone and a McLaren squaring off in a race throughout the streets of Dubai. The video, which looks more like a clip from a video game than real life, features a beautiful white McLaren 650s speeding through neon gates on a scenic night in brightly lit Dubai.

The video is a promotion for the World Drone Prix, which is taking place between March 7th and March 12th in Dubai. The World Drone Prix is an event put together to showcase the best drone racers in the world as they compete for cash and prestige in a likely up-and-coming sport.

The Drone won the race, but because of the nature of the video, that’s what everyone would expect. The real question is, what would happen if the two squared off in a real race? Would you put your money on the McLaren?

Check out the video below.
