Just visited the “Great British” event at Circuit Park Zandvoort, together with some fellow PBSM club members. Lots of British cars, old and new. Not a lot of Astons though, apart from our own. But luckily, we brought some beautiful and special specimens, including a Vanquish Volante in Ocellus Teal, a Vanquish coupe and both dutch V12 Roadsters!
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.
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.
This weekend I visited the 2014 edition of the yearly Interclassics & Topmobiel fair in Maastricht, the Netherlands. Last year’s edition was the best year for Aston Martin fans, because it celebrated AM’s 100 year anniversary. But still, lots of Aston Martin’s to find this year. Here’s some photos I took during the event. A couple of Lagonda’s from the pre-Aston Martin days, several beautiful classic Aston and two modern ones.
Last weekend, as part of a 6 day road trip, I was in Monaco and had the chance to do a quick visit at the Top Marques show. I wasn’t too impressed with the show. It’s quite small and sadly the emphasis seemed to be on tuning (I can’t believe how many full-carbon-body cars I saw there…). Anyway, the local Aston Martin dealer, British Motors, had a stand at the show too, displaying 4 Aston Martins, a Vanquish, a V12 Vantage Roadster, a new DB9 and a Cygnet. (I don’t have any pics of the Cygnet, sorry!).
Last Friday was a good Aston day here in the Netherlands. Two new Vanquish examples were delivered to their proud owners. Both in silver, but different kinds of silver: One in the new Skyfall Silver, one in the classic Silver Birch. BTW: check the license plates… How cool is that? More pictures of both after the break:
