I think the Aston Martin V8 Vantage sounds pretty great when stock, but this Quicksilver exhaust upgrade sounds pretty fantastic too.
#58 brings a new title format which lists the car and the auction too, hopefully drawing more people to read and also making it easier to find each individual mini article. As you can see this spot is a lovely 2005 Aston Martin Vanquish S with a very clever (if illegal) private number plate that is supposed to spell out ‘Bond’.

In this video you get to hear the new Vantage start up, rev and even crackle. Obviously its not like listening to the car in the flesh but it does give you a good idea of just how good it will sound. I had a chance to have a sit in the car when it was touring the AM main dealers and I think it looks pretty incredible.
To me, the Aston Martin DB9 is a car that keeps looking better with age, which is quite an impressive feat for any car. This 2008 model is currently listed with Stratstone (not an AM main dealer) for a shade under £48,000. Continue reading “Internet Find #77”
It is rare to find a project Aston Martin DBS like this one, which is why the bidding has gone so crazy on it (over £40k at the time I’m writing this). Judging by the photos of this car it doesn’t look to be in terrible shape, though of course it is when you take this car apart that you’ll know exactly how much work it needs. Apparently the car was last on the road in 1992, over 25 years ago now! The brakes don’t work, there is surface rust all the way around and a small amount of damage to the front left corner, so it certainly isn’t a wreck judging by that description. It would be lovely to see this beauty back on the road, and I’m sure that by then the prices will have sky rocketed again.
Since the DB11 has been introduced and Aston Martin has made a push to get younger buyers I’ve seen more and more of their cars in bold colours such as this V12 Vantage S, which is in a fantastic eye searing Yellow that I love. It presents such a great aesthetic and I could even get past the red callipers that don’t suit the rest of the car. It’s listed for £125k which is obviously not cheap but it is a nearly new car with only 100 miles on the clock in its first year of life apparently, which is a bit of a waste. I don’t think it’s an easy car to sell on but in a future when this becomes more of a classic then colours like this will quite possibly be worth the most.
Surprise surprise, its another spot from the COYS auction. I can’t help it, there are just too many nice cars not to feature them. I actually never used to like the Aston Martin DB9 but they’ve grown on me a lot as the design has aged. Continue reading “Auction Spot #4”
