Car Tech faces its greatest challenge -- its Everest, its World Cup final, its Mumm-Ra the Ever-Living -- as Rory takes to the race track in the astonishing Aston Martin DBS.
This £160,000 ballistic missile is blasted around corners by its 5.9-litre, V12 engine. Reining in its frightening 510bhp are vented carbon-ceramic brakes that can bring it to a standstill from 60mph in under 40m.
With the best audio system we've heard in a car and positively magnetic looks, we can forgive the DBS' user-interface foibles and horrific fuel consumption. It's a masterpiece, and you should hit play to see it move right now.
