The Astons at the AutoSalon in Brussels

Yep, two car shows in one week! Saturday’s Interclassics event was all about classic Astons, but yesterday it was time to spot some new models at the AutoSalon in Brussels.

Vanquish in Ocellus Teal - front with logo

I spent most of my time in Hall 12, the super car hall, where Aston Martin had a stand showing a Rapide S, a Vanquish and a V12 Vantage S. But two other Astons could be found in other halls, a V12 Vantage GT3 hidden away in the bike halls and a classic DB6 Vantage at the Vredestein stand.

Vanquish Volante in Ocellus Teal

I am still undecided about this color, Ocellus Teal. On photos I always like it and looking back at my own pictures, the car looks wonderful. But in the flesh, the color has a greenish glow that I don’t like. Love the interior though, the True Teal with the yellow stitching is a great match.

V12 Vantage S in Tungsten Silver

Tungsten Silver, an unusual color for a V12 Vantage S. In fact, I think I have never seen a V12 Vantage in Tungsten Silver. However, combined with the black and carbon fibre details, it looked pretty menacing.

Rapide S in Meteorite Silver

I still love the Rapide S. The big mouth gives it a brutal look, while still staying stylish. On this car you can’t go wrong with Meteorite Silver (Ceramic Grey is another good choice for a Rapide IMO).
