    Yes Adam, I think you will qualify for "Most Awesome Rennteam Car of the Year Award"! indecision Which could be a consecutive win, since our GT4s won last year kiss

    Haha indeed, thanks!  Smiley

    I don't think the V12VS dogleg will win any press awards this year but for what its worth word is that Chris Harris has just bought one for himself!

    Here is a picture I took of my GT4 alongside my old V12V (on the day I sold it).  I will try to get a one of the GT4 and V12VS together soon, but I am not registering the Aston until 2nd Jan so will be a few weeks before they are on the road together and I am able to give any meaningful driving feedback.

    WOWOWOW! Congratulations Adam!!! Very unique spec! Would you mind sharing any pictures of the interior? wink

    The interior has a few "Q" special items on top of the normal spec extras, and is basically 50:50 Pure Black Leather and Pure Black Alcantara with Green contrast stitching.

    • Lime Green Contrast Stitching
    • Alcantara Dash, with upper IP and Instrument Binnacle in Leather
    • Gear Gaiter in Alcantara with Leather Knob both with Lime green stitch
    • Contemporary GT12/GT8 style instrument pack

    I am going to take a few better pics tomorrow as the first ones I took were very dark because it was late evening and just taken on the iPhone, so the Lime stitching looked almost grey on them.

    Smiley  Oh well, couldn't expect everything to be 100% to everybody's taste I guess. Smiley

    I have always liked them on the V12 Zagato and they worked out cheaper than the normal lightweight wheel option, plus had the advantage of still being OEM and rather rare too with just 101 sets being made, of which 68 were fitted to the 68/101 Zagatos that actually got sold and built.

    Interesting - does that mean they failed to sell the whole run, or was it some other reason?

    Interesting - does that mean they failed to sell the whole run, or was it some other reason?

    Yup, AM originally announced 150 V12 Zagatos would be made, then later paired that back to just 101.  The trouble was it was mechanically identical to the normal V12 Vantage which was priced at £138k in the UK, and could be had for less than that if you haggled, however the V12 Zagato with its unique Zagato styled bodywork and interior was £400k. So perhaps not surprisingly given the economy was bad at the time, they ended up selling just 68 of the reduced 101. Smiley

    All that said there have been a couple of used examples on the market in the last year and both were over £450k so they turned out to not be a bad investment after all.

    Through another forum I managed to source one of the remaining unsold full sets of V12 Zagato wheels, of which a run of 101 sets were made for Aston.   As lovely as the factory V12V lightweight wheels are, AM wanted £3750 for them as an option and it turns out the Zagato wheels were actually a little bit lighter still and they worked out a whole lot cheaper than that after I sold my stock wheels to another forum member.

    So they may not be to everybody's taste, but I love them, plus they are super rare, OEM, ultra lightweight and a bit of a bargain.Smiley

    Interesting regarding the Zagato history - thanks. Love the colour and I think the wheels suit it well. Great that they're light, too - can't overstate the benefits of that..

    That looks fantastic! Wheels and all! Really like the spec. Wish I knew about the Zagato wheels too, would have been inclined to get them. Can't wait for your official review. Congratulations! wink
