The night before last week’s track day at the Nürburgring GP Strecke, all participants were invited for dinner at Aston Martin’s Nürburgring Test Center. I always love going there, because they never fail to have a nice collection of demo cars present.
Yes, it’s that time of the year again: Wrapping Time! Early this week, we dropped off our Blue Beauty at JD Customs, for its’ Summer 2014 look. And it’s gonna be spectacular!
My Cobalt Blue V12 Vantage Roadster and a friend’s Cobalt Blue V8 Vantage Roadster, both waiting to get their throttle pedal replaced 🙂
Just some photos I took of my Cobalt Blue V12 Vantage Roadster. Taken on 3 different locations on the Dutch island Goeree-Overflakkee.
I am going to make two big trips with “Agent #002”, my Cobalt Blue V12 Vantage Roadster. First to Scotland, from June 14 to 21, with the Dutch Power Beauty Soulmates club. Then in July, from the 17th to the 22nd, Aston’s Centenary Rally “1000 Miles to London”. And for these two special trips, Agent #002 is getting a special outfit, a spectacular temporary wrap. Monday next week is wrapping day, at WrapMyRide.nl. I will be posting pictures to our Facebook page throughout the day, so that you can follow the wrapping process from start to finish. Just to get an idea, here’s what we did for last year’s Power Beauty Soulmates trip to Italy. (this year’s wrap is going to be more spectacular though 🙂 )
Here’s a quick video my wife shot on the Autobahn, while driving back from the Nürburgring 2 weeks ago. Me and my wife in my blue V12 Vantage Roadster chasing a friend driving my red V12 Vantage, on the German Autobahn. Reaching speeds up to 270 km/h. Fun!
A very cool spot just appeared on Autogespot.com. A Cobalt Blue new Vanquish, together with a Tungsten Silver “old” Vanquish. What a pair!
It already arrived at my dealer a week earlier, but last Tuesday was the big day: We could finally pick up our new V12 Vantage Roadster, the Cobalt Blue Agent #002! Here it is in the showroom, all serviced, cleaned and polished, ready to go home:
It has arrived, my Cobalt Blue V12 Vantage Roadster! That is, it has arrived at Kroymans, the local Aston Marton dealer. May I present to you, the most beautiful Aston Martin ever, Agent #002: (parked next to the 2nd most beautiful Aston in the world, my Fire Red V12 Vantage)
In June, I received news from my dealership that Aston Martin had finally decided that they would indeed make a V12 Vantage Roadster. It would be a limited run of only 101 units and they just started taking orders. With the V12 Roadster having been my ultimate, but sadly non-existant, dream car for about 3 years, it didn’t take me long to make my decision. In fact, within 15 minutes of receiving the news I had placed my order. Fast forward five months and the production of my topless V12 Vantage has started. And the best part: we got invited to watch it being created at the factory in Gaydon!
