Aston Martin Commercial: 100 years of Power, Beauty, Soul

Aston_Martin-Vanquish_Centenary_Edition

Aston Martin has revealed this video as a tribute for it’s 100 years of existence since it has been founded by Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin. It features some of the most iconic models and celebrities  that contributed to the built of the brand’s long history, transforming it into the acclaimed make that it is today. Celebrating it’s 100th anniversary, Aston started by revealing the Centenary Edition Vanquish. It is a customized version of the already astonishing and gorgeous Vanquish. The engine power delivery is gonna be very similar to the regular Vanquish, 565 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. The modifications are gonna be mainly aesthetic. The Centenary edition is gonna feature a special paint job like the one shown in the picture above and special leather seats with silver stitches, details that were reserved to the One-77 hypercar. Aston Martin is gonna produce 100 Centenary edition of the Vanquish, V8 Vantage, DB9 and Rapide. So I don’t really think we will be seeing any of these special edition models on the streets but damn they are gonna be gorgeous!!

People who have booked for Centenary Edition will receive a free gift package, yes “free”, that includes two glass keys, two bespoke key pouches made from the same interior leather, solid silver cufflinks featuring the Aston Martin logo, solid silver Rollerball pen and high quality Bang & Olufsen headphones. Happy birthday Aston!!

BMW Commercial: The Zagato Coupe

This amazing hand-built beast is the result of BMW getting together with Milanese coachbuilder Zagato. I must say this car has a very aggressive front side that was designed specially around the engine so that it fits perfectly. The front grill is covered with “Z”. The rear part of the car doesn’t seem like it is following the same aggressive spirit as the front. It a bit too futuristic. I would have preferred a more “Z4 look a like” look for the back. Nothing was announced by BMW regarding the engine specifications but I would predict that the BMW Zagato will feature the V8 twin-turbo 4.4-liter of the 2012 M6. It will probably be tuned to release around 600hp. There is a big probability that this concept will go into production in the recent future.
