Visiting the Towbin Aston Martin dealer in Las Vegas

I am currently in Las Vegas for business, so yesterday I figured: While I am here, why not visit the local Aston Martin dealer, Towbin Motorcars. Towbin is a combined Aston Martin, Bentley and Rolls Royce dealership, with an impressive stock of new and used cars. The guys and gals at Towbin were friendly and I enjoyed talking with them about Aston Martin and of course, taking lots of pictures of the nice Astons they had in stock, including a very special Vanquish Volante. Here’s a selection of my photos:

Meeting Shmee150 in Amsterdam

I am sure you are familiar with the well-known Shmee150 YouTube channel / Facebook page and website. Last week, Tim Burton, aka Shmee150 himself, started on a 25-day “Where’s Shmee 2014” tour, taking him through 10 countries and to lots of super car related events and companies. On Friday, Tim did his first “Shmeeting” with his fans, right here in Amsterdam. And we were invited to join the Shmeeting with “something special”. Well, what’s more special than my V12 Roadster in its’ Union Jack livery?

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. 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.
