Kobe Bryant jumps over moving Aston Martin

No,Kobe did not jeopardize the lakers future with this commercial. This is not real but sure does look real. To hype up Kobes new shoes, Nike made this commercial where an Aston Martin goes right at Kobe Bryant who jumps over it, in his new light weight shoes. And for those asking if this is still real,Kobe told a local newspaper "Hollywood Baby" when asked how he did it. Kobe did really jump that high though, to me it looks like the Aston Martin drove by his side. You be the judge, What do you think?

Aston Martin & Prodrive working on V8 Vantage GT2

Aston Martin & Prodrive working on V8 Vantage GT2

When will it be enough? “Never” could very well be the answer for David Richards, the head of racing freelancers Prodrive and chairman of Aston Martin. The two companies under his thumb have been collaborating on the campaigning of Aston Martin racing cars in a growing number of endurance sports car competition classes in recent years. The DBR9, DBRS9 and Vantage N24 have been ripping it up in the FIA GT1, GT3 and GT4 classes, but as you may have noticed, the Aston Martin racing program lacks a car to enter in the GT2 level. Prodrive and Aston are planning to plug that hole and strive for an eclipsing domination of sports car racing with a GT2 racer based on the V8 Vantage.

A mule is currently undergoing testing, having run laps around the MIRA test track in England, up the hill at Goodwood, and was set for more work this week at a Michelin tire test in Spain. That most recent test session, according to Prodrive’s Aston racing program, will give them a better idea about the project’s future.

The prospect of another Aston Martin hopped up on steroids and storming the track has got us watering at the mouth, so watch this space for more news.

CARversation Comments: ooooo yes.!! i can’t wait to HEAR this and see this monster.
