McLaren-P1-Durability-Testing-Main-Art

The Lamborghini to Buy


Lamborghini-Gallardo-Main-Art

Her Majesty's Pleasure


2013-Aston-Martin-V8-Vantage-S-Main-Art

In the rarefied world of exotic automobiles there’s something for just about everyone, so long as their wallets are sufficiently engorged. For customers that wish to be smothered in comfort and morally objectionable amounts of luxury Rolls-Royce offers a host of suitable automobiles that will surely exceed their needs. If someone wishes to attract attention a brightly colored Lamborghini is hard to beat; they’re unsurpassed when it comes to ego-fluffing. And of course for eccentric drivers interested in something completely off the wall there’s the Koenigsegg CCX. Lady Gaga, your car is ready.

Boutique British brand Aston Martin falls somewhere between these extremes. Their products are opulent but sporty, outrageous looking yet tastefully designed, special without being completely obscure. They’re James Bond’s top pick and a fine choice for anyone lusting after something exceptional.

Aside from the laughable Toyota-based Cygnet city car the V8 Vantage Coupe is Aston Martin’s entry-level offering. With two seats, two doors and rear-wheel drive it has all the ingredients of a true performance machine. However, the S model is a step up from there, and the Roadster is yet another rung up the ladder. This dramatic drop-top is an extraordinary car and the subject of today’s AutoGuide Five-Point Inspection.

McLaren P1


Few car companies are committed to all-out performance quite like McLaren. The boutique British brand is probably best known for its outrageous F1 supercar that set speed records in the 1990s. But the company is far from a one-hit wonder. Over the last decade and a half they’ve been active in racing, worked with other automakers like Mercedes-Benz to deliver some awe-inspiring vehicles and have even developed a successor to the F1 – the elegant looking but awkwardly named MP4-12C.

Pushing into the future, McLaren is set to reveal a new supercar at the Geneva Motor Show in just a few days, and believe it or not the P1 as it’s known is actually a hybrid. But don’t worry; it’ll still deliver absolutely crushing performance. Here are the Top 10 things you must know about this exciting new McLaren before it takes the stage next week.
