    rofl! i wish, the only AM dealership is only opening in a few months time (around november i think) will go have a look and see but i'd go for the DB9 over the V8 if i were to order one

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    Man, that is sexy.

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    Very nice looking car. Only thing i'd change is the front grill. it needs to be shaped a little differenty I think. And I like how the doors kinda go up. like they want to be like a lamborghini, but not really.

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    Andy, they call then the Swan wing doors, not quite gullwing(merc SL300), and not quite full lambo style , unique

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    God, I just looove the looks of this car, and have been following it from its inception. I'm not sure that when I decide to get out of my 996TT, probably in another year or so, that this car would have the power to satisfy me. I know people have speculated that Aston might do a more powerful one, maybe SC'ing, but it seems that would just eat into their higher end car market.
    Whatever the case, you certainly won't see yourself coming or going if you've got one of these puppies.
    Love, love love this car.

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    This car is not probably a performer (compare to Porsche) but it sure turns many heads when you drive down the street with it.

    Bazza,
    The pictures look like they are from the reception area of the Aston Martin factory at Gaydon, Warwickshire.

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    most gorgeous cars around..really.

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    love how they found a receptionist with matching hair~

    We shouldn't jump to conclusions. Consider the possibility that they painted the car to match the receptionist's hair.

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    I remember a very similar color on the DB4!!

    So the receptionist has been with the company for some time!

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    amd just saw a tv preview on ITV (pulling power)3 mins ago .

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    When are they coming out with the AMV8 in auto trany or something other than the manual gearbox?

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    Seems more in line with the the DB5 of yesteryear than most of Aston's recent offerings. I like it quite alot. At $115-120 USD I would give it strong consideration.

    Crosdaddy,

    See my post on the other AMV8 thread-I'm hoping for an AMV8 Supercharged (as Betz has alluded to in press releases) Vantage Volante.

    I plan to keep my 996TT (TSCab), add a 997TT (maybe also a TSCab), then if they get around to making an AMV8 Vantage-SC-Volante, get one of those. In the meantime, I plan to go to the Toronto, Ontario (Canada) official unveiling of the AMV8 on October 22. I'm from just down the Thruway from Buffalo (Rochester).

    Mike,

    That was my initial thought when I saw the DB9 (especially the Volante) come out, but I hear AM really worked on making the AMV8 more sporty with tighter handling (the DB9 tips the scales a bit, so centrifugal forces are greater with greater angular acceleration-and tougher cornering). And if they do supercharge it, it could be a quick one to boot. I plan to see the AMV8 in the flesh October 22 (North American "official" unveiling), and probably test drive a DB9 and AMV8 in Florida this winter.

    BTW, is it too late to change your travel plans to Geneva, Switzerland in early March? Something about a new car Porsche is unveiling there. . . .

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    Al,
    I didn't know that the AMV8's debut in N.A. was @ Toronto, I think if thats the case, I'll probably take a run up there. Where in Fla. this winter are you planning to test drive one?
    Do you get your P cars from Holtz? How are they to deal with?
    Regards,
    crosdaddy

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    Wow... that colour compliments the car 100%
    I just cant get over the back though..
    Its still a looker though + it should sound incredible..



    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    AL, Where in Florida are you going? I have a good friend down here who sells A-M, Ferrari and Maserati.

    I make annual trips to Naples, usually in January, for the Naples Daily News Half Marathon (distance running). I have relatives in Pelican Bay, just north of town.

    Crosdaddy,

    I indeed purchased my 996TSCab from Holtz. I have bought BMW's and Audi's from them, as well, so I have a relationship with them. It's obviously hard to generalize, but they have been good to me (and I've been good to them!).

    I go to Naples, Florida in the winter at least once a year, and plan to do this again this January.

    Re: AMV8 at Gaydon

    Oh, my friend is in Coral Gables, near Miami. There's a nice Porsche store in Naples too.

    Crosdaddy,

    The Toronto AM dealer is Grand Touring Autos (website is grandtouringautos.com).

    LPM,

    There is a Naples Porsche dealer. And good ones on your side of the peninsula. Hopefully, TS-Katrina won't ruin your weekend, BTW.
