Aston Martin LMP1 009 featured on Bugatti Veyron Art Car

Artist Ian Cook (aka PopBangColour) created this Bugatti Veyron Art Car to be the main attraction at the Wilton Classic and Supercar Festival. This car, also called the BugARTi, is wrapped in classic Gulf colors and features the Aston Martin LMP1 “009” race car on its’ right flank. (The left side shows a Porsche 917 Le Mans car.)

First V12 Zagato spots – pics and video

It looks like Aston Martin has started delivering the first V12 Zagato’s to customers, because the first cars are being spotted on the streets now. Earlier this month, GTSpirit already published photos of a dark silver car spotted in London. Then a few days later, a nice blue one was captured by a spotter in Switzerland. For me, the car looked awesome from the first shots at Villa d’Este, but seeing in a normal street situation really makes it clear how brutal it looks.

Is this the new Rapide S?

Earlier this month, several car news sites published similar spy shots of what they claim is the upcoming Rapide S. This sportier version of the Rapide would get 40 extra horses (bringing it to 510 hp), a stiffer suspension, carbon ceramic brakes and of course a slightly altered look (confirmed by the camouflaged front and rear in these pics).
