    New pics of V12 Vantage and Rosso red DBS at our local dealer

    I was supposed to fetch the Phantom today, but decided to postpone due to the heavy rain. Don't want to waste the detail that was just done on the car prior to the service.

    While I was there I took some pics of this beautiful Rosso red DBS the dealer had on the floor. As of this year it will be a standard colour option from AM.

    The V12!

    I feel bad for the Rolls, there she is... waiting to go home Smiley

    Phantom is a great car, but rosso corsa is reserved for the prancing horse. Smiley

    Agreed - not sure that shade of red works on an Aston, somehow.  Smiley

     Well for me its a Certainty that everytime i detail my car, no not even detail it even just a simple wash, it will rain. never fails so i'm just over it by now.

    I think the red looks ok but kindda out of place. on the other hand i saw a Granturismo S the other day in rosso corsa and it looks  astonishing


    Re: New pics of V12 Vantage and Rosso red DBS at our local dealer

     nice showroom, thnx for posting 


    Re: New pics of V12 Vantage and Rosso red DBS at our local dealer

    It is nice to see a DBS in another color than grey, silver or white. 


    Re: New pics of V12 Vantage and Rosso red DBS at our local dealer

    Thanks for the compliment on the Phantom.

    Was a pleasure to be able to share these photos Smiley


    Re: New pics of V12 Vantage and Rosso red DBS at our local dealer

    DBS doesn't do a thing for me in Red.

    LOL @ going to fetch the Phantom. So dryly and matter-of-factly like, I was going to fetch some groceries. LOL!!!

    Hi easy, thanks for the point out. Sure it's Top Gear? Never seen that episode. I have seen the 5th gear episode as posted in one of the posts.

    Yep, Top Gear, watched it myself last night, last item on the final show of the current series. Awesome car, awesome scenery  Smiley - but the commentary by JC was almost funereal - is the end nigh for such cars with environmental concerns, hostile legislation and congestion getting ever worse.

    There is some buzz that the comment may refer to the show itself, although I have a hard time believing it.  Smiley

    During the show JC remarked that it would return in November - which of course is not the summer which gives credibility to his comment in the Guardian. Smiley

    I would be very surpised if it was axed, despite the BBC's nauseous political correctness and Socialist bias as it is BBC2's top rated programme. The Guardian is also not likely to be a supporter of Top Gear or Clarkson. Smiley

    @ Mike S - apologies for taking your thread off - topic here Smiley

    For me a Aston has to be dark grey... dont know why but I like that color on it. The red wouldnt be my choice!


    Re: New pics of V12 Vantage and Rosso red DBS at our local dealer

    Toro red suits AM cars much better than rosso...

    I thought this series of 'Top Gear' was decidedly sub-standard......I even nodded off during two episodes...

    http://www.topgear.com/uk/tv-show/series-13

    I actually enjoyed some parts of this series very much: Richard Hammond's review of the Murcielago LP640-4 SV, the segment on finding a car for 17 year olds, the Veyron vs McLaren F1 drag race, the fake Stig 'denouement', the vintage 911s in the Majorca rally and JC's epitaph to the high performance car (in an Aston V12 Vantage).

    The Panamera vs the Royal Mail race was
