    My V12 Vantage is almost here

    The dealer notified me today that the V12 Vantage is in it's final stages of build. They are going to ship it here via air freight. So I should take delivery in 2 weeks time! I can't wait! SmileySmileySmiley


    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

    Woow, great news

    I remember the day, as if it is yesterday,  you have first announced it on Rennteam, Mike.

    Waiting for the pictures eagerly

    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

    If you want me to give it a pre-flight road test shake down let me know. The factory is only an hour or so drive for me and I don't mind giving up a few hours of my time

    Look forward to seeing pics when you take delivery

     


    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

     Mike, I strongly suggest you consider coming down to Swaziland for a break, I would be glad to drive you around Smiley


    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

    Thanks pride! Time sure does fly. Also seemed like yesterday to me!

    ISUK - perhaps a short holiday to London is in order again

    Thanks skazzy, I don't think my wheels will last long on those Swazi roads!


    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

     i cant wait to see the pics Mike !! this last part of the wait must the worst of it all. now that i think about it, it seems like the car didn't take all that long to be ready. 


    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

    Thanks Enmanuel. Yes - I was very early to with the deposit. So I will have the first delivery in my country. There are only 2-3 more that will be delivered this year.

    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

    Thanks guys - It should be leaving the factory next week Monday/Tuesday!!


    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

    Congrats Mike!  Tell me, what made the dealer air freight it?  Or are you paying for that?  I have heard of RR air freighting a few customer's Phantom to beat the tax rise here last year, but they were the only cases of such thing...


    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

    Hi WAY, in SA they air freight almost all the exotics (excluding Porsche). All the Ferraris, Lambos, RR etc. due to their extremely high price because of the tax, the cost is a fraction of the total purchase price.


    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

    Interesting Mike. I didn't think the cost of cars were much more than here. How much is the V12? It's about A$435 on the road here. I think that is about USD370.

    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

    At the moment without options it sits at $421,300 US.


    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

    Latest update from dealer!
     

    Hi Mike,

    Exciting news, your vehicle has been airfreighted and will arrive at OR Tambo tomorrow.

    OR Tambo is our international airport. Maybe delivery will be this weekend!



    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

    Hey Mike, I know your feelings right now !!!, I'm taking delivery too in 1 hours time, but obviously its not as special as your beast !!!!!!

    Lets hope you can get it this weekend, and post some pics too !!!! , pretty excited for you !!!! Smiley

     Joe has a great point there. Mike please tell me you don't plan to stack this one up in some basement ! you better have a sweet spot prepared at home, a nice cozy space. Shame on you if you repeat what you did to the SL Smiley Smiley


    Re: My V12 Vantage is almost here

    Thanks Alex! I'll be sure to take lots and lots of photographs!

    LOL Joe, now that you mention it.... I will need to move some of the others cars elsewhere.

    Haha, I will move the M Coupe and the Vitara to the basement. The AM and SL will obviously have preference for space in ther garage
