    AMV8 Options

    Colors and interior







    Re: AMV8 Options

    I'm one of the few that saw a leather cloth combo on the AMV8 brochure and loved it. I don't see cloth as an option here. Maybe only for Euro models :-(

    what the he!!....no british racing green???

    Re: AMV8 Options

    Maybe its just the computer generated images, but none of those interior pictures blow me away. I think its the huge black plastic middle part that ruins it. I would assume they would offer a wood package of some sort then again, maybe not so it doesn't look to much like a DB9. In any event its missing something. Not enough contrast, needs another color somehow. Maybe some contrasting stitching.

    Isn't that huge black plastic bit aluminium in reality? I'm not sure.

    Re: AMV8 Options

    Not sure if its aluminum or not. If it is, I never got the impression from the Geneva pictures that it was brushed or anything.

    It might look better in person, but right now its a little drab. I've seen the new black lacquer finish on the DB9 and that was beautiful. Looked just like a black piano.

    Re: AMV8 Options

    no yellow exterior option??

    and where's my carbon i've been drooling over since the prototype?

    do tell!


    Re: AMV8 Options

    With those combinations I'm almost relieved I'm quite far down the waiting list..

    Re: AMV8 Options

    I love pizza,

    I heard for the first 7 or 8 months only the indicated paints and these 5 interior options are the only available ones and you also have to take all the options such as dimming mirrors, battery something and so forth... which is around GBP7k or GBP8k.

    igzaklee,

    Yellow is the launch edition color. If you happen to get the launch edition than you have a yellow one otherwise yellow won't be listed as a paint option (this is what I was told by the dealer).

    Re: AMV8 Options, design opinions ..

    FWIW ......

    Insturments seem over decorative rather than serious.

    Sloping dashboard and console seem like another useless
    design affectation rather than its form serving any purpose.

    Aston's tach needle moves in counter rotation to speedometer
    needle.

    You would think that for a fast and very personal car that there would be somewhere to toss whatever onto the dash top
    during stops and that the insturments could be easily read at a glance at high speed.

    Do the people who design these cars actually use them, or are they drunk on design for the sake of design?????

    The Aston interior looks very prissy to me. Im sure devotees of fancy handbags and crystal trinkets will love it though.

    All up, its disgusting and should be replaced with something more business like.

    Re: AMV8 Options, design opinions ..

    Thanks for posting the options.......although I must say that I am a bit turned off by the interior of the car. I am seriously considering placing an order for January delivery, but my dealer has told me that they have no substantial information on colors or interior trims as of yet. May I ask if you have any more photos of the car's interior?

    Thanks,
    Ray

    Designers usually discuss their ideas at the table with a round of beer or wine

    This is all I have.

    Not surprising, the interior was designed by a woman, former fashion designer (Sarah Maynard)

    Re: AMV8 Options, design opinions ..

    Its beautifully executed, but shouldnt a sporting car be sporting some insturments other than tach, speedo, gas and coolant temp? Why is the clock set so low?? And why must we be so impressed by the sight of a prominently placed CD slot?? Can it stamp letters also??

    It all looks like a German prisoner at Connally was ordered to make a Lexus IS300 interior look more expensive or get shot in the morning.

    Sorry to knock it so much, but traditionally, British, German and Italian sports cars have more insturments and at least a few practical design things inside.

    This is nicely done up, but ladies handbag useless.

    Re: AMV8 Options, design opinions ..

    these pictures are much more revealing than the others... thanks. It's not bad, but now I am really confused about placing an order.

    Cheers,
    Ray

    bahaha

    just for everyone else's reference,
    sarah maynard WAS a handbag designer.

    the interior looks cheap compared to the DB9
    mabye deliberately, for model differentiation purposes.

    Re: AMV8 Options, design opinions ..

    And what do you think of this 'handbag' on the dash of Pagani Zonda F?

    Wait until all the options are available, I bet it's almost not any different with the DB9's! Especially when the DB9's automatic or the Vanquish's sequential manual is available.

    Deposit Question

    I am thinking about putting a deposit for the possible future supercharged AMV8.
    How much are the dealers asking as a deposit to get on the wait list? As with other cars, Mercedes, BMW etc, is the deposit fully refundable?
    I have no experience with any dealers at this level. So, any tips would help.
    Thanks.

    Re: Deposit Question

    Well, refunding your money is very subjective. I initially thought that by law they have to refund your money but later on I found out that it all depends on the dealer's discretion nothing else.

    I know in Houston Porsche use to refund your $1,000 if you pulled out but since almost couple years ago they require $5,000 and non-refundable.

    Ferrari and Aston in Houston both require $10,000 deposit and they tell you up front that IT IS NOT refundable. Now make sure you clear this with your dealer and don't take their words for it, get it in writing.

    Re: AMV8 Options, design opinions ..

    I don't care if its decorated like a rolex watch, if these thing doesen't become cheaper than $130,000 and suddenly gain 20 more hp, there is goin to be a problem. Maybe Im wrong, who knows the people who buy these cars.

    Re: AMV8 Options, design opinions ..

    argh!! so close, yet SOOOO far~~


    Aston dropped the ball at the 10 yard line imo--


    maybe they'll pick it up before anyone realises but...

    Re: AMV8 Options, design opinions ..

    In most states it is illegal for a car dealership to take a non-refundable deposit, unless of course, your contract with them provides for one.
