Old World Style or New? Aston Marton or Viper? Yes, Please!

A couple of videos came across my desk today which I enjoyed so much I thought I’d pass them on. Two entirely different takes on style, but I love them both.

First up is one from Aston Martin. They’re celebrating their 100th anniversary this year and among other things, several owners drove 100 Aston Martins from Lake Como to London’s Kensington Gardens back in July, stopping at the Nurburgring on their way. Some good shots of several classic Aston Martins in there, along with pictures of their owners partying. Well, I would, too, if I could afford to drive one.

You can learn about their 100 year history on their webpage, where they have a centenary timeline posted (check out the photo for the September 17, 1964 date). You might also want to check out their CC 100 speedsterconcept car, which pays homage to the 1959 DBR1 racer. Pity it’s a one-off.

Up next is what I’d call the North American auto industry’s most stylish car—the SRT Viper. Here’s a video from DriveSRT looking at their 2013 American Le Mans Series season. Vroom! Looking good for next year.
