Aston Martin DB10 to Star in the Next James Bond Film

It comes at little surprise that Daniel Craig will find himself at the helm of an Aston Martin for the next 007 film, SPECTRE. But what sets the next film apart from its predecessors is that instead of Bond launching rockets and throwing out spike strips from a heavily modified version of a current product Aston Martin model, he will instead do so from the all-new DB10, a bespoke coupe designed specifically for the film.

Netherlands Testing Glow-In-The-Dark Roads

A quarter mile of N329 highway in Oss, Netherlands is being used a trial run for an entirely new way of illuminating highways at night. Instead of relying on power-hungry overhead lights like traditional roadways, the road itself actually glows in the dark by way of a photo-luminescent powder integrated into the road paint.

Video: Project CARS to Take on Forza and Gran Turismo Later This Year

In the world of console racing simulators, two franchises garner the lion’s share of attention: Forza Motorsport for Microsoft’s Xbox and Gran Turismo for Sony’s Playstation. But Slightly Mad Studios, the group behind the crowd-funded racing title Project Cars, might just have a legitimate contender on their hands.

Gamer: Need For Speed Rivals To Arrive On PS4 And XBox One

One series that’s struggled just below the top ranks of Forza and GT is Need For Speed. The old series was making waves three-and-a-half years before the original Gran Turismo arrived on our shores, but a string of lackluster or overly arcade-like titles and paired with a few critical misses have taken the shine off this old series. Need For Speed Rivals, due out on PC, XBox 360, and Playstation 3 on November 19, takes the series back to the halcyon days of Hot Pursuit, when the racing was between drivers and police.

Gamer: DriveClub Is Your First PS4 Racing Game

Our colleagues in the tech industry had a busy night. Sony held its first Playstation 4 event, and while there was a great deal to talk about (including the fact that Sony didn’t even show the actual console), we’re most interested in the PS4’s first racing game.

Gamer: Dirt Showdown Trailer

Colin McRae’s beloved racing series “DiRT,” is making a departure from its established formula in the form of DiRT Showdown. The previous installments have been based firmly in reality, with rally racing taking center stage, as it should given the Colin McRae legacy. The latest DiRT project is taking a step in a different direction, a more violent direction, and we’re okay with that.

Gamer Gear: Wireless Speed Wheel For XBox 360

In anticipation of our upcoming review of Forza Motorsport 4 for the XBox 360, we’ve taken to finding ways to improve our virtual driving experience. Sure, using the regular controller works fine, but we prefer the feel of a wheel in our hands. We love the force feedback wheels we’ve used, but they are clunky, take up a lot of space, and are difficult to use unless attached to some solid piece of furniture. Now, we’ve come across a happy medium, the XBox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel.

Gamer: Will Porsche Make Its Gran Turismo Debut In GT5?

In the process of putting together the GT3R Hybrid article, we certainly couldn’t help but notice that the car was proudly displaying the Gran Turismo name and logo across its windscreen. Now, as any driving gamer worth his salt is sure to know, Porsche has been conspicuous by its absence from every version of GT thus far. Could it be that the German automaker has changed its stance on offering its products to the hordes of GT fans?

Gamer: Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit Returns

If there’s one aspect of driving that we’d much rather simulate than actually do, it would be having the fuzz breathing down our necks at 160 miles per hour (seriously, those days are long behind us). Luckily, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit was announced at E3.
