Did Daniel Craig buy a V12 Vantage Roadster? I am not sure, but he did take delivery of one. Yesterday, Driving.co.uk published this photo and reports that Daniel Craig “was handed the keys to the bright red V12 Vantage convertible”. Now which one of the 101 V12 Roadsters is this? Judging from the picture, the “bright red” could either be Flame Orange or Red Lion. Looking at my V12 Vantage Roadster Register, there’s only two V12VR’s in Flame Orange (one the AML demo, the other recently for sale, and two UK cars in Red Lion (the first also a demo, the other unknown). So has Daniel Craig been lent one of the demos or did he really buy one?
Remember GTSprit.com’s review of the V12 Vantage? At the time, I already spotted and reported that the specific car they got to review was a very rare Carbon Edition and in a rare color too: Flame Orange. Well, this very special V12 Vantage has come to the Netherlands (my home country) and is now for sale at my local Aston Martin dealer (Kroymans Hilversum). This week I had the privilege of seeing this car in person and I have to say: this may be the most beautiful and most complete V12 Vantage I have ever seen. But is it the perfect V12 Vantage?
