CC100 Speedster Concept voted “Most beautiful concept car of the year”

Obviously everybody knows that Aston Martin makes the most beautiful cars in the world. But it’s nice to see that fact confirmed by some “official” jury once in a while: This week, at The Festival Automobile International in Paris, the CC100 Speedster Concept was voted the “Most beautiful concept car of the year”. No arguments here. Just look at it, what a beauty. Here’s some more photos I took of the CC100 at the Parade event at the Nürburgring last year:

Spotted: Vanquish in Silver Birch

Remember this Vanquish, in the beautiful classic Aston color Silver Birch? It was one of the first Vanquish cars delivered in the Netherlands, in March 2013. In the meantime, the first owner has upgraded to a Vanquish Volante and, judging from these photos by spotter TwinCharged, the Silver Birch beauty is already being enjoyed by its’ new owner.

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.
