Aston Martin董事長Lawrence Stroll日前公開表示：「總是會有這麼一群渴望、喜歡、想要純內燃汽車的狂熱者們，而我們將會去滿足他們。」他表示，2030年後Aston Martin仍會有5%的業務將維持內燃汽車，但受限於英國政府的相關禁令，這些新款的純燃油車將可能無法在該國市場上進行銷售。
同時，Aston Martin也正著手進行電動汽車的規劃，預計將推出以「Aston Martin」自家品牌為首的電動車款，而非如過去所計畫的掛名於子品牌Lagonda下。
If we had well over $300,000 to get a new car, we wouldn’t blow ‘em all on an SUV. Nonetheless, if you want to do just that, there are several to choose from, including Mansory’s tuned Audi RS Q8.
Presented last month, it certainly has the grunt to match its looks, with the twin turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 pumping out 769 hp and 738 pound-feet (1,000 Nm) of torque.

Thanks to some aftermarket parts such as a high-performance exhaust and tuned ECU, it’s way more powerful than the stock model, which has 591 HP and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm). The extra oomph lets it go from rest to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 3.3 seconds, 0.5 seconds quicker than the regular RS Q8, and hit a 198 mph (320 km/h) top speed, up from 190 mph (305 km/h).
Mansory’s modified RS Q8 also features several carbon fiber components on the outside, such as the piece around the grille and the spliter, and boasts fender flares, more aggressive looking side skirts and a set of 24-inch wheels. The super SUV is finished in black and has a few red accents.
Advertised on Mobile, it has an asking price of €288,888, including tax, or $350,122 at current exchange rates – a pretty hefty premium over the stock RS Q8 which starts at €126,235.29 ($152,992) in Germany.
Hot on the heels of the unveiling of the track-focused Lamborghini Huracan STO, the carmaker has teamed up with Swiss watchmaker Roger Dubuis to launch a limited-edition timepiece inspired by the hardcore supercar.
Dubbed the Excalibur Spider Huracan STO, the timepiece has been displayed with the same Blue Laufey and California Orange color combination as the Huracan STO show car.
The Excalibur Spider Huracan STO features a 45 mm skeletonized carbon case with rubber inlays topped with a titanium bezel and metallicized sapphire crystal, while the strap has perforated calfskin leather and a rubber interior liner.

The Excalibur is powered by an automatic RD630 caliber that provides a power reserve of up to 60 hours. The movement combines a 12-degree angled balance wheel with a 360-degre oscillating weight inspired by the wheels of the Huracan STO.
Interestingly, whereas Lamborghini hasn’t committed to capping production of the Huracan STO, Roger Dubuis has confirmed that just 88 examples of the Excalibur Spider Huracan STO will be produced, with a retail price $56,500. That’s an eye-watering figure, especially when you consider the car itself starts from $327,838 in the United States – but then again, Roger Dubuis’ watches have always been luxury items and priced accordingly.
As for the supercar that inspired the timepiece, the STO is the most hardcore variant of the Huracan and is powered by a 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 churning out 631 hp and 417 lb-ft (565 Nm) of torque. Unlike most other variants, the STO is rear-wheel drive and is 43 kg (95 lbs) lighter than the Performante.
