    V8 Vantage video from Norwegian webmag

    Looks and sounds fantastic as always:

    This used 2006 model is for sale at the Aston dealer for a mere 204 000 euro

    Here's a picture of it, on a typical Norwegian road with a typical Norwegian scenery in the background:

    "007" in the number plate...I understand why Barbara Broccoli likes Astons in her Bond movies since they complement Bond's character - which is fine - but when will this marque finally distance itself from James Bond in its OWN marketing?

    Easy there Easy Rider. Mine has an 007 on it (preceded by my initials). Just meant to be a bit of fun. I don't really think I'm James Bond and I don't have a license to kill (at least as far as anyone knows). My Aston dealership's phone number coincidentally ends in 007 as well. My only regret is that my last name starts with an "M" and not a "B". :cool.

    More seriously though, I don't see why Aston would want to separate themselves from Bond in their marketing. The association has been a positive one for several decades now.

    @friscorays: you got me wrong buddy I wasn't actually criticising the Bond movie makers or the Aston buying customers (like you). It's your money and if you want to have a bit of fun, more power to you! I was very mildly criticising the manufacturer itself for relying too heavily on the 'Bond factor' in its marketing. Honestly, hand on my heart, IMveryHO, it's a little lame.

    AM should be rightly proud that the Broccolis always loved using Astons to complement Bond's character in their movies BUT surely the car should have an identity of its own based on engineering excellence and high performance rather than upon some skindeep, showbiz association with a fictional spy.

    Sorry to harp on like this but I believe in substance and integrity rather than the superficial glitz and glamour that people love to chatter about these days. Didn't mean to offend you in the slightest though. It was all said in good spirit. Enjoy your Aston - it's a wonderful, highly desirable car.
