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.
Sadly I wasn’t able to visit the Techno Classica show in Essen last week, but judging from the pictures, it looks like it was a huge show with lots of nice cars, including many Aston Martins. Luckily, I received these photos from Mitchell van Alphen, showing the modern Astons at the show.
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?
