2018 ASTON MARTIN DB11 LIGHTNING SILVER – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 744 – Fireball takes a spin with buddy Lou Kahuna in a 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Lightning Silver. Whoa.

The Aston Martin DB11 is a British grand tourer coupe produced by Aston Martin since 2016.

It debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016 as a replacement to the DB9. It is the first model launched in Aston Martin’s ‘second century’ plan and the first all-new car launched since the company’s tie-up with Daimler AG.

The DB11 was designed by Marek Reichman, Aston’s chief creative officer and head of design.

It continues the tradition of design focused on 1:3 proportions and includes a number of new and unique design features, including new roof strakes that separate the body from the roof, available in black or body colour and the “Aeroblade” intakes in the front strakes.

These evolve the side strakes from purely visual to functional and channel turbulent air down the side of the car and into intake ducts by the C pillars and forced out at the rear vertically as a ‘virtual’ spoiler, providing down-force.

The bonnet is a ‘clam-shell’ design from the only supplier Aston could find to supply a large, single piece of aluminium.

The DB11 features an all-new riveted and adhesive-bonded aluminium platform that shifts the emphasis from extrusions to stampings to create more cockpit space.

The DB11 V12 is powered by an all-new 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 engine, making it the first turbocharged series-production Aston Martin.

The engine produces 600 bhp and 516 lb⋅ft. The car is equipped with a rear-mounted 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox. The DB11 accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds and reaches 200 mph.

The initial V12 model was joined by a V8 version in the summer of 2017. Powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine developed with Mercedes-AMG, it results in a 115kg weight reduction.

The V8 produces 503 bhp and 498 lb⋅ft, resulting in a top speed of 187 mph and accelerates to 62 mph in 4 seconds.

During the DB11 coupe premiere, over 1,400 DB11 vehicles were ordered.


FULLY RESTORED 1970 OPEL GT – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 741 – Fireball tours Southern California, exploring Car Culture among English Cars, Metropolitans, Concept Cars and more. Visiting Sports Car Classics, he spots a 1970 Opel GT.

The Opel GT is a front-engine, rear-drive two-seat sports car manufactured and marketed by Opel in two generations — separated by a 34-year hiatus.

The first generation Opel GT (1968-1973) debuted as a styling exercise in 1965 at the Paris and Frankfurt motor shows.

The production vehicle used mechanical components from the contemporary Opel Kadett B and two-door hard top bodywork by French contractor Brissonneau & Lotz.

The styling of the 1970 Opel GT was often cited as similar to the 1968 Chevrolet Corvette which went on sale in September 1967.

The Opel GT was equipped with a base 1.1 L OHV straight-4 engine, which produced 67 hp (SAE) at 6,000 rpm.

However, most buyers chose an optional 1.9 L camshaft in head engine, which produced 102 hp (SAE) at 5200 to 5400 rpm. Some of the early 1968 models also came with a slightly higher compression “H” code cylinder head.

In 1971, due to emissions regulations, Opel reduced the compression ratio of the 1.9 L engine used in the US and output fell to 83 hp (SAE). There was also a GT/J model, which was a less expensive version of the 1900-engined GT which was sold only in Europe.

Standard transmission was a manual four-speed. A three-speed automatic was available with the 1.9 L engine. The model run of the Opel GT was from 1968 to 1973. The Opel GT uses a steel unibody and a conventional front-engined, rear-wheel drive layout.

The engine is mounted far back in the chassis to improve weight distribution. Front suspension consists of upper A-arms and a lower transverse leaf spring. A live axle and coil springs are used in the rear.

The power-assisted braking system uses discs in the front, drums in the rear. Steering is unassisted. One unusual feature of the Opel GT is the operation of the pop-up headlights.

They are manually operated, by way of a large lever along the center console next to the shifter. Unlike most pop-up headlights, they both rotate in the same direction (counterclockwise from inside the car) about a longitudinal axis.

One standard joke about GT owners was that you can easily spot them due to the heavy muscles on their right arm built up by using the lever to pop up the headlights. Designed by Opel Stylist Erhard Schnell, the Opel GT is a fastback, that has neither an externally accessible trunk nor a conventional hatchback.

There is a parcel shelf behind the seats that can only be accessed through the main doors. Behind the parcel shelf is a fold-up panel that conceals a spare tire and jack.

The interior of the Opel GT is surprisingly large for a car of its size, owing to its original design process (exterior metal was sculpted around an interior model).

Headroom and legroom are sufficient for those over 6 feet (1.83 m) tall.

During 1968 to 1973, a total of 103,463 cars were sold. The most collectable GTs are probably the first few hundred cars hand-assembled in 1968 and the 1968–1970 models with the 1.1 L engine, which totaled out at 3,573 cars.

Of the later cars 10,760 were the cheaper model (GT/J), which lacked nearly all chrome parts and offered fewer standard features.

In some markets, items like a limited slip differential, front and rear anti-sway bars, heated rear window, and engine bay light were standard, although most cars were shipped without them.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti is a compact executive car produced by the Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo.

It was premiered in June 2015, with market launch scheduled for February 2016, and the Alfa Romeo Giulia is the first D-segment offering by Alfa Romeo after the production of the 159 ended in 2011.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia is also the first saloon by Alfa Romeo in over two decades to use a longitudinal engined rear-wheel drive platform, since the 75 was discontinued in 1992.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia was second in the Car of the Year 2017 competition.

In North America the 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti will be available as two “base” models—the Giulia and the Giulia Ti (for Turismo internazionale).

Both with a 2.0-liter, turbocharged 280 hp four-cylinder engine with 306 pound-feet of torque.

AWD in the Alfa Romeo Giulia is optional for 2.0 turbo and the only transmission option is an eight-speed automatic.

The 505 horsepower 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is also in lineup for the United States.

The first US deliveries of the Alfa Romeo Giulia took place in September 2016. According to FCA parts catalogue EPER, North America will also receive the 350 horsepower Veloce version.

The 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia will mark the first Alfa Romeo model sedan sold in North America since 1995.
