The Need for Speed movie is here! This Saturday, the movie was premiered in Ede, the Netherlands. And to make the premiere extra spectacular, over 200 supercars were invited, including our Cobalt Blue V12 Roadster and our yellow italian monster.
The “BZT show” is a Dutch television program that makes kids’ dreams come true. We were asked to come to the studios with some nice cars, to make one super-car loving boy very happy. Of course we will. So off to Hilversum we went, bringing two V12 Vantages, together with our friends from JD Customs, who brought two very nice Ferrari’s.
Do you own an Aston Martin and are you in (or close to) the Netherlands? Then come join our Power Beauty Soulmates Sunday Drive on Sunday March 9! To sign up : Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, phone number, number of persons and which model Aston Martin you will bring. This Sunday Drive will start in Amsterdam, around 13:30 and will end somewhere along the Dutch coast. ( Power Beauty Soulmates is a Dutch Aston Martin club that organizes a Sunday Drive every two months. On March 9, for the first time, we’re opening up the Sunday Drive to non-members, Aston Martin required of course ).
Next to the Vantage N430, these are the other two special editions that Aston Martin will bring to Geneva. Two Carbon editions of the DB9: Carbon Black and Carbon White.
I was already wondering what Aston Martin would bring to the upcoming Geneva Motorshow. Again the Vanquish Volante, V12 Vantage S and Rapide S? Nope, they came up with a cunning plan: they created 3 special editions, one of the V8 Vantage and two of the DB9. This is the special Vantage: the V8 Vantage N430. Looks great, right? But, how “special” is it really?

Last week (5 – 9 February) in Paris, the Retromobile fair was held, a great event with classic cars and the history of motorsports. One of the cars offered at the auction during this event was this 1962 Aston Martin DB4 GT (series IV) and it got sold for €1.184.500,-.
We found this rare DB4 GT Zagato on eBay. It is for sale at Collector Motors in Texas. Looking at the price tag (US $2.4 million) you would think that this example is one of the 19 original Zagato’s. But no, this black beauty that is for sale is a unique one-off custom built project.
Aston Martin has issued a recall for all LHD models built since November 2007, plus all RHD models built since May 2012, a total of 17,590 cars. Affected cars will have to return to the dealer to have the throttle pedal replaced and the “foot well scuff plate adjusted”.
