Aston Martin Vantage V12

Did anyone catch this on Top Gear. What a beauty !

I thought J C's poignant message was a nice touch.

Still prefer the old V8 vantage - sounds even better - wouldn't say no though!!!



Turn the volume up and make sure you have good speakers - what a noise!!!

I know a bloke who has a DB9 - it's worth more than his house. He made a window into the garage from his living room and he has rigged up spotlights and electric curtains - looks better than you would think - his wife wasn't amused though...........

I had a V8 Vantage (the original type), great fun but rather unreliable! Had a virtually straight through exhaust too!





The new V12 looks great, although I'm not much of a fan of the bonnet louvres - all a bit busy looking.

Nice motor, prefer one with a roof though.
Men in convertibles are a bit.......bruno if you know what I mean...

It was nice, one of only 2 RHD made. It was a Volante Vantage (rather than a Vantage Volante), a very rare beastie and the precursor to the PoW cars.

Absolutely stunning - impeccable taste. Wouldn't have a convertible though - not stiff enough and after having been upside down in a car it tends to put you off a bit!!!
