Aston Martin DB11 AMR gets more power and carbon fiber

Auto Blog News Feed - Fri, 05/11/2018 - 19:05

Filed under: ,,,

Aston Martin has pulled the wraps off the DB11 AMR, and the fact that it's just what we expected it'd be shouldn't diminish the impact of this ultimate (for now) DB11. But, if you're not down with AMR, a quick backgrounder for you: Early last year, Aston launched the Vantage AMR Pro and the Rapide AMR, the first salvos in a full broadside of AMR models that will encompass the entire range. There are two AMR subdivisions — AMR is handled by Aston's main design and engineering teams, while t

Here's what a Virgin Hyperloop One pod interior might look like

Auto Blog News Feed - Fri, 05/11/2018 - 18:15

Filed under:

One of the challenges in designing a Hyperloop pod is overcoming the fact that there won't be any windows, unlike in an airplane. That could result in a claustrophobic environment, especially as Hyperloop passengers will have to remain seated for the entire duration of the journey. Designworks, a BMW-owned design consultancy, has created a prototype interior for the Virgin Hyperloop One, unveiled recently in Dubai.

2018 Nissan Rogue does its best Millennium Falcon impression

Auto Blog News Feed - Fri, 05/11/2018 - 16:37

Filed under: ,,,,

With Solo, the latest Star Wars film, on the way, it was only a matter of time before we saw yet another custom Nissan made to look like a starship from the series. And for a film about Han Solo, the only logical ship to recreate was Solo's famous Millennium Falcon. It's built in the same impressive fashion as past custom Nissans, even if the proportions are a little odd translated to a car. This Rogue features the key exterior components of Solo's ship, from a panel over the windshield to repli

Swarmed by a crowd of VIPs with a smattering of journalists sprinkled in, I make my into a large building that's staged as a decades-old warehouse in San Francisco. I pass a chainlink fence housing NOS bottles and am greeted by familiar four-wheeled characters: a '12 Subaru WRX STI, a '97 Mazda RX-7, a '70 Ford Escort RS1600, and a '69 Dodge Daytona. If you've seen the third, sixth, and seventh outing of the $5-billion Fast & Furious franchise, these are the films co-stars, appearing in the
