Loading...Yesterday we covered the great Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo, one of the cool looking Gran Turismo 6 cars and now we stumbled upon another supercar design from the same game. You can check out below the Aston Martin Design Prototype 100, built for GT 6 for PS3.

The rear side of the model, especially the lights feel very much like the CC100 Speedster concept. The futuristic ride has a pretty low grille and the Aston Martin Design Prototype 100 has a twin turbo V12 engine, with 800 bhp to offer. Aston Martin claims that they used the same techniques as those used for the development of production sports cars, like hand sketches and 3D modelling.

The vented wheel arches are meant to reduce drag, increase the downforce and also make the supercar easier to handle. Swan wing doors have been included, adopting the iconic Aston Martin approach here, when it comes to cockpit access. At the back there are bladed rear laps, with LED lighting. DP-100 was unveiled at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed and it remains a mid engine beast, but the design is a bit too tame for Aston Martin in my view.

Aston Martin DB11 Volare Rendered Months Ago, Before the Real Thing Leaked; Looks Gorgeous!

Loading...It was a month ago that the Aston Martin DB11 pulled a major leak, but before that the new DB had been rendered by prolific designer Jennarong Muengtaweepongsa. His name may be a mouthful, but you’d better remember it, since we’re dealing with a prodigy here.

The designer is a 15 year old teenager from Bangkok and started sketching cars since 6. Now he created the Aston Martin DB11 concept, also known as the Volare. This is supposed to be the next gen successor to the DB9 and it’s more of a study of continuously flowing lines and a variety of aspects from previous Aston Martin models. The front side is inspired by the CC100 speedster concept, especially when it comes to the grille design and metal inlets.

The shape of the grille is taken from the DB6 and there’s an invisible “X” being formed in the middle of the car, by lines crossing onto each other. The “X” marks the spot of the driver’s position, so that’s pretty cool. Aston Martin DB11’s rear is inspired by the DB10 and in case you’re wondering, the real model was spied at the end of June this year, with Mercedes S Class dials and switchgear.

It’s said to have a twin turbo V12 engine and a special intercooler, that chills the air to fuel mixture. I have to say I’m liking this concept more than the real leaked model.

Aston Martin DBC Channels a Jaguar and Ferrari

Loading...Created by Samir Sadikhov, the Aston Martin DBC concept below channels a bit of Jaguar CX-75, but in a good way. The headlights don’t have enough punch to scare anyone, if you ask me, but let’s find out more details after the break.

Aston Martin DBC concept 2

The silhouette may make one think of McLaren, while the width is all Ferrari to me and the Aston Martin DBC sounds like a very solid AMG rival. One can only wonder why the One-77 doesn’t look anything like this and Aston Martin should check this out and hire Samir. We’re dealing with a mid engined layout here, that’s certainly a change from the current approach.

Aston Martin DBC concept 3

The designer wanted to create a car that would be easy to carry into a production model. I can imagine this as a V12 monster, maybe with the Vantage S engine on board, but in the middle area. What’s important to notice here is that we get very discrete wings and probably a rounded back that’s a bit too rounded for my taste. Also this Aston Martin render is sort of a “big butt” car compared to other modern supercars….
