Why the Aston Martin DBX707 AMR24 matters

In the rare air of ultra-luxury performance cars, a link with F1 racing is one of the few associations that’s even cooler. In the second half of the 2023 F1 season and so far in the current season, the two-driver F1 teams from Aston Martin and McLaren Racing have both enjoyed success pushing against Red Bull, Ferrari, and Mercedes, the giants of Formula 1. Aston Martin is comfortably in the top five of the ten Formula 1 teams this season, and in several very real senses, that’s money in the bank.

Aston Martin is shrewdly using its F1 link and the company’s Vantage GT3 race car, which is also new this year. Last month, Aston Martin unveiled the Valiant special edition based on a custom design for a personal car, developed by Aston Martin F1 driver Fernando Alonso and Q by Aston Martin, the brand’s bespoke and limited edition branch.

The DBX707 AMR24 uses the same powertrain and performance mechanicals as the DBX707 SUV Supercar. A twin-turbocharged 40-liter V8 engine cranks out 707 PS (697 hp) and 900 nm of torque (664 lb-ft). The car has a 9-speed wet-clutch automatic transmission, and its all-wheel-drive powertrain accelerates from 0-to-60 mph in 3.1 seconds and has a top speed of 193 mph.

The DBX707 AMR24 features unique F1-inspired exterior and interior colorways, finishes, materials, and accents, including special edition badging. The special edition also includes a new Bowers & Wilkins sound system, acoustically engineered for the DBX707’s shape and volume.

Customers can order the Aston Martin DBX707 AMR24 now.

Collecting cars is a passion that allows for all sorts of niche vehicles to go for astronomical prices for a myriad of reasons. Maybe it was a poster of a Lamborghini Countach on your wall as a kid, or the first Porsche you ever saw just happened to be a 911 Slant Nose Turbo, or maybe it has been your lifelong obsession with F1 racing that has you fixated on not wanting, but needing to own a piece of the sport. Well, now is your chance to get your hands on a truly one-of-a-kind car. The very first Lotus Formula 1 car will be going up for sale at a Bonhams auction on May 10th.
This Lotus F1 weighs just 700 pounds and makes 141 hp

This one-of-a-kind car is chassis number 353, which was raced by Lotus in both F1 and F2 for eight races between 1957 and 1959. Its official debut was during a non-championship race at Silverstone. Both the car and its driver, Graham Hill, made their F1 entrance that day, beginning an illustrious tandem career, where man and machine would go on to not only win the triple crown of Monaco, Indy 500, and Le Mans, but two F1 championships to boot.

A new poll suggests F1 2024 has a viewership problem — here’s why
Red Bull's Max Verstappen's domination bores some fans

The 2024 F1 Grand Prix racing season has barely begun, but a recent F1 viewership poll by suggests fans are less enthusiastic now than before the season began. Citing nearly 150,000 votes, the poll results claim 61% of respondents voted they were less excited about the rest of the F1 season than during the pre-season, with only 7% more excited and 32% unchanged. More recent events might swing a new poll in the opposite direction.

According to the poll report, the most common reason for fan disenchantment was Red Bull's Max Verstappen winning the first two races virtually unchallenged, continuing a winning phenomenon of the past two seasons. Well, Max didn't win the third race, the Australian Grand Prix, on March 24. In fact, he didn't even finish the race but retired the car when his right rear brake caught fire.
