Geneva 2015 – Vulcan

Geneva2015 - Vulcan-1049

Last but not least, the Vulcan. A £1.8 million track-only hyper-car of which only 24 will be built. Still very much a prototype, no interior at all and all future carbon parts still shiny black plastic. But impressive none the less.

Geneva 2015 – Lagonda Taraf

Next to the 3 cars in the main area, the Aston Martin stand at Geneva also had the Lagonda Taraf, tucked away in a special area. I must say it looked better in person, but I am still not 100% sure about the looks of this one. But I wasn’t in the market for a 4-door Aston anyway

Geneva Motor Show 2015

Geneva2015-1045

As you’ve probably seen on our Facebook page, I have visited the Geneva Motor Show earlier this week. Obviously, I spent most of my time at the Aston Martin stand, making lots of pictures. In the meantime, I have made a selection of the best photos and will post them in the next couple of days, car by car.

The Vantage GT3 is here, and it rocks!

I haven’t been writing here for a while, partly because of a lack of time, partly because of a lack of Aston Martin news worth writing about. But today I must, because yesterday’s Aston press release re-ignited my Aston passion to the max. I am very happy to see Aston Martin can still do that. So what am I talking about? Well, look at it first and then we’ll talk: This is the new, limited to 100 examples, Vantage GT3 Special Edition!

Big 5 on Spa 2014 – Five One-77’s!

One-77 track 1 - Alexander

The BIG5 track day at Spa Franchorchamps is one of the most popular BIG5 events, so participants are distributed are two days, the Monday and the Tuesday. I was driving on the Monday. However, during my track-day, I heard that there would be 4 One-77’s participating on Tuesday, maybe even 5! So on Tuesday, before I drove home to Amsterdam, I went back to the track, to see if I could snap some pics of the One-77’s. I was able to make some quick photo’s in the pit lane, but did not have enough time to make real work of it. Luckily, my friends Alexander van Boekholdt en Paulien Aerts were there the entire day AND were so friendly to allow me to use some of their great photos. Thank you!

I love driving my V12 Vantage on the track. And I am proud to say, I’m slowly getting better at it too Last week at the BIG 5 track event, I was able to do about 40 laps around my favorite circuit, Spa Franchorchamps. Here’s one of my laps, filmed by my friend Mark with his phone while in the passenger seat. It’s a bit shaky, but I think it gives a good impression of what it’s like to drive a V12 Vantage around this beautiful track. Enjoy:
