Sadly, like quite a few people on this side of the pond, I wasn’t able to join Fancy Kristen and other motoring enthusiasts in Britain this past week to join in the tweed-colored, brilliant madness that is the Goodwood Revival. I wouldn’t’ve fit in anyway: too many Blipshift shirts, not enough suspenders. But there…

Three years ago, a similar list of this nature was made on Oppo, let’s see how far we’ve gone since then…
First of all, that thing up there. That’s what the folks who made it over at Aston Martin call the Valkyrie. What am I supposed to do with that???
You build just 24 track-only cars that customers can keep at home but they still have to call the brand for approval before tracking the car, and now you’re telling me there is an aero track-pack for a legit track car that can only be tracked? Is the Vulcan just running standard production car protocol here? Are these…
I forgot this car existed to begin with and I was surprised to find out it still being made. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one on the road, and I’ve seen like no mention of it in any press or comparisons or anything. I don’t even think it’s been in any videogames (GTA V has a knockoff version of it, which is what…
Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer dished on Aston’s product future...and dish he did because he served up some tasty delicacies like capers on a square plate! Here’s AM’s product rollout schedule for seven models over seven years.
If I could tweak Aston Martin’s lineup (let’s say starting from 2020 to 2024), this is how I’d set it up.
About: “The Men’s Arts Council (MAC) created the event in 1990 as a fundraiser for Phoenix Art Museum and this event continues to set the benchmark for excellence. The finest vintage automobiles in the world have graced the scenic highways of Arizona during this annual four day event.
Yaaaay!!! *Dances with fingers in the air* Love the concept, hate the execution. Even Virage owners look at you with a raised eyebrow as this is the culmination of everything crappy about early 2010s Aston Martins. These were around $80,000 for the early 6-speed cars last I looked.
With the 12 hours of Sebring coming up this weekend, here are some photos I took at the 58th running.
After making it home safely (Tampa to Boston) it was time to start addressing some of the minor “issues” with the 10 year old exotic i have just purchased.
Turns 10a and 10b at Road Atlanta through a 400mm lens.

There is also a green one here in town along with a pair of red DB7 Zagatos. We also have a Vanquish Zagato on order. Should be here soon.
My camera hadn’t been put to good use in a while and I was getting the itch to smell some race gas, so last weekend I went to the Sebring Classic 12 Hour. Being a few hours from both Sebring and Daytona, I was able to choose between this and the Ferrari Finali Mondiali. I was originally planning to head to Daytona on…
As written about on Petrolicious:
I’ve only had about 2.5 to 3 hours of sleep. Have some Aston action with a dash of David Gilmour...
I dropped by the Artcurial Motorcars auction today in Paris, France.
I didn’t get to see the “fancy” stuff as it was 20€ to enter the garage even though the actual auction was free.
Not as quick as the C7 Z06, but has a lot of the random things OPPO likes :]
