2013 Aston Martin DBS Spy Photos – Nurburgring

Here are the latest spy pics of the next-generation Aston Martin DBS hiding under camouflage, seen here undergoing handling testing at the Nordschleife in Germany.

The car is wearing detail camouflage around the rear to hide its one-77 inspired curves, but we can clearly see the new light clusters based on the Virage and Rapide.

Powering the next James Bond car will be a 6.0-liter V12 engine but will get one-77 tuning to deliver about 530 HP.

Also with the chassis weight reduction targeting around the 1350kg this will be some formidable super car.

 

FORD ESCORT MK1 RS2000 – touches the heart and soul (Rare Find)

Here is a fantastic video of the Mk1 Rs2000 driving around the Eifel close to the Nuerburgring.

When the Escort was launched, Ford prepared a rallying version, which was later marketed as the Escort Mexico, commemorating the car’s victory in the London to Mexico Rally of 1970.

Ford felt there was a market for a car with more power and refinement than the Mexico, but without the higher production and ownership costs associated with the more complex RS1600.

Ford believed that such a model would appeal to a wider customer audience than the existing ‘sporting’ Escorts, and would offer RS motoring at an affordable price.

This is MacMedia first youtube clip so be kind and support their efforts, and if you fancy owning one be prepared to spend around 24k Gbp.
