Ever since rumblings of a new, supercharged Z06 hit the Interweb, there’s been two different but equally forceful narrative-explosions: the first, natch, was “How much power will it make?” And the second was, “DURRR YOUSE GONNA PUT A BLOWER ON A ROAD COURSE CAR DURRR IS YOU STUPED?” And that second quote was mine.
Aston Martin is working with director Sam Mendes to build 10 all-new sports cars for Spectre, the next James Bond film.
Today, the automaker has set its own design language, further distancing itself from the badge-engineering days of yesteryear, and is now creating a slew of handsome luxury offerings that, even though Cadillac may still feel it, don’t look old.

We may no longer have the Boss 302, but Ford saw our disappointment and delivered a Shelby GT350 with a flat-plane V-8 and a 8,200 RPM redline. We're impressed.
Specs: 784 horsepower. 737 pound-feet of torque. Twin-turbo V-6. Dual-clutch, 8-speed transmission. These are just a few of the tantalizing tidbits circulating about the next-generation GT-R. And while they're just educated guesses gleaned from industry sources at this point, all signs point to a major Godzilla upgrade. And get this: the R36 might even have a completely revolutionary hybrid powertrain.
