    The V12 Vantage, finally some pics

    Finally got the car home today. What an enjoyable afternoon. The clutch is very sensitive, so I'm still getting used to it. The sound is intoxicating though, the car burbles like a purring cat when you lift off the throttle Smiley

    More driving impressions after the weekend after some real wheeltime!


    Re: The V12 Vantage, finally some pics

    Gorgeous. With a garage like this, I'd sleep in it.

    Do you find yourself having issues with the gear stick when engaging 2nd, as in the DBS ?


    Re: The V12 Vantage, finally some pics

    Well you must work hard Mike, so I take my hat off to you.   Ya taste in cars is pretty good too.

    Some men have all the luck. We can't even get this car in the US. Doesn't pass crash regulations.

     i thought that EU safety regulation were more rigurous than on the US. Smiley

    Re: The V12 Vantage, finally some pics

    To top my day off. I enjoyed an evening out around the track at night with Derek Bell (5 time Leman champion) in the new Bentley Supersports!

    Here are some crummy shots with my phone.


    Re: The V12 Vantage, finally some pics

    Forgive the bad quality. The car is much louder in person that shown in the video. We hit a poor bird on the one long left hand turn going 130mph and went slower the second lap as precaution to check if there was any pieces left. I quoted, "Well, there is not much left of him." and Derek respond "He's dead." in the video

     


    Re: The V12 Vantage, finally some pics

    Thanks Mike. Your car looks great and the photos are tunning

    Re: The V12 Vantage, finally some pics

    What a car ! I dunno but I am totally into white cars now....I like most cars in white....like Isuks white California....

    Looking at the height of the garage - there might be "stacking" possibility right there...

     


    Re: The V12 Vantage, finally some pics

    Wow... this garage is like the Playboy Mansion.... just better

    The car looks stunning. I like the mineral white metallic - perfect color for this car!

    Enjoy it!
