    Re: 2017 V12 Vantage S test,150mph on a lake and a Geman gets tasered

    bumping this thread as I am in the market for a V12VS 7 spd dogleg

    new here, but here are my credentials488AB9A4-06DE-4969-AF94-1F9690C214E7_1_201_a.jpegCDF9D88C-FA33-48FA-80F2-EEEE401EE498.jpeg F65403AB-034F-4136-8D49-17471E3D6095.jpegD88D478F-9D02-43DD-9F8F-CBCD7E0BF615_1_201_a.jpeg1571015272463D471F206-A3DA-46EB-BE4F-DE388299C296.heic


    Re: 2017 V12 Vantage S test,150mph on a lake and a Geman gets tasered

    Whoopsy, I PM'd you over on RL to see how you are liking the V12VS.

     

    Adam2s-I like you choice of colors and carsSmiley

     

     

    anyways, not many out there on the usual car sale sites, so if anyone has a lead on a USA car let me know--would prefer China Grey with yellow accents or silver.

    Ah shit, I don't really noticed my PMs over there. I still love mine but sadly it's gone, I ran out of room after getting the GT2RS and the pending arrival of the Panamera Turbo S, AND my impulse purchase of the e-Tron. Didn't help that I also just bought a Fiat 124 Spider on another impulse buy.

    Had I knew you were in the market for one I could have directed you to my car.

    Re: 2017 V12 Vantage S test,150mph on a lake and a Geman gets tasered

    Hi kfmcmahoon,

    If you can trust me, don't even think twice ! The V12S Dogleg is my absolute favorite ! It is such an occasion and has so much personality, even at normal speeds ! I still maintain it has yet to be discovered by the masses ! For reference sake, mine parks next to a bunch of Porsche's too ! If your into involvement and occasion, you'll love it ! The Vantage does not drive you, you drive it, but it lets you know under no uncertain terms that you better respect it !

    Re: 2017 V12 Vantage S test,150mph on a lake and a Geman gets tasered

    Congrats!  What a beautiful vehicle, and what a proper way to pick a car up.  Looks like a great drive home.


    Re: 2017 V12 Vantage S test,150mph on a lake and a Geman gets tasered

    Thanks!

     

    I see that GT4 in your avatar....regrettably, I sold mine to a track buddy, this time last fall and have been without a manual transmission car since.  Always wanted a V12 and sat in a friends F12...seemed way too big for what I wanted...my last 4 cars were either mid or rear engined, so it seemed like the F12 hood went on forever...not so with the  V12 Vantage S


    Re: 2017 V12 Vantage S test,150mph on a lake and a Geman gets tasered

    Really cool car, congrats!!

    Hate to reiterate what was posted above; however, that is one beautiful Aston-Martin.  Enjoy the ride.

    Congratulations Smiley. Nothing touches a V12 for aural drama. How does the handling compare to your GT4. I have always found the Astons to fall down in that department along with a rather dead steering feel.


    Re: 2017 V12 Vantage S test,150mph on a lake and a Geman gets tasered

    Nice goingwink  - V12 with Manual is a great combo - only had one for a few months...

    The Aston V12 is like a sledgehammer, there is no finesse. You manhandle the car instead of let it flows like in a GT4. 

    Literally grab it by the balls and lead it on.
