YouTube #13: AM V8V with Quicksilver exhaust

I think the Aston Martin V8 Vantage sounds pretty great when stock, but this Quicksilver exhaust upgrade sounds pretty fantastic too.


YouTube #12: Velar SVR, Vanquish and others testing at the ‘Ring

Some of the most interesting upcoming cars have been caught testing at the Nurburgring including the Velar SVR (featuring JLR’s phenomenal V8), the new AM Vanquish/DBS, 8-series, Supra and Cullinan.

Auction Spot #61: Lamborghini Urraco

The Urraco is probably one of the least known Lamborghinis, it wasn’t all that popular when it was produced and is now quite rare, with only 205 P300 examples like this one being built. Continue reading “Auction Spot #61: Lamborghini Urraco”

Auction Spot #59: Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale

In recent weeks I’ve seen a few posts about the Challenge Stradale on social media and I’m pretty intrigued, especially since a few people have called it one of the best sounding cars ever. Continue reading “Auction Spot #59: Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale”

Auction Spot #56

For #56 we’re moving from Morris Leslie to the COYS auction which will also be taking place on Saturday, though I will be attending this one. The auction takes place at the London Classic Car Show so if you’re attending the show you can watch the auction and even have a bid should you wish (just note that just watching an auction is pretty boring in general).

Anyway, my first spot for this auction is this lovely MG RV8 which is painted red (quite unusual for one of these). You normally see them in BRG which looks fantastic and has a lovely depth to it but there is something about the red paintwork that makes this car stand out, and I’m curious to see how it affects the price, as the guide of £15k – £20k isn’t all that unusual for one of these. Apparently this car is one of only 43 RHD UK models, which seems awfully low for a British car with a total build figure of close to 2,000. 85,000 miles doesn’t seem as low as COYS would like you to believe but if it is a well presented car it could be a great car (and a fun one) for someone. Follow the link below to see the original listing.

YouTube #11: LS3 V8 Defender

The Land Rover Defender is an icon in the car world, and they can be very effective at the job they were built to do. Sometimes though, people wish they were a bit faster and do something like the owner of this car has and put a big V8 in the place of the 2.2 diesel it came with. Not only does it make an awesome noise but it also looks pretty quick!

YouTube #10: Listen to the new Aston Martin Vantage roar.

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.
