With only 2,980 actual miles from new, this gorgeous example may be the finest in the world. There were only 50
manual 6-speed Vantage V12 coupes imported, so it is safe to say that this is an extremely rare car here in the
States.

This Aston Martin was purchased new in Atlanta by a collector that had an eclectic collection of exotic supercars.
They were all kept in a climate controlled showroom and driven sparingly. Car has been recently serviced with a
brand new full size Interstate battery and a fresh set of Michelin Z rated Super Sports have been installed.

She is in as close to as-new condition as you could ever hope to find for a 15 year old car. If you ever wanted one
when they were new with a manual 6-speed, but couldn't afford it, here is your opportunity. This is a genuine
British supercar by all modern standards.

This car features four important options: The burled walnut trim package, the spare tire, the walnut steering wheel
and the steel coolant overflow purge tank that was a $1000 replacement over the original plastic unit. The cost of
a bespoke walnut steering wheel ordered presently from Aston for this car is $3,500. The spare tire kit included a
complete trunk shelf and liner kit. The tool kit is present and in unopened containers.

The color is pearlescent silver metallic and the interior is black leather with cream leather inserts. Every panel
in the interior is leather including the entire dashboard, the entire seats from front to back, entire door panels
and even the rear partial shelf. The leather is sumptuous and exudes the highest most luxurious standard. The
carpet is the highest quality British Wilton wool. The all leather interior aroma is intoxicating and is overall
exquisite.

Additional interesting information. This car's transmission is the world class Tremec T56 6-speed manual shift. It
is the same style that is used in Corvettes and modern Mustangs. Shifting is smooth and precise. Changing a clutch
is easy and straight forward by simply removing the transmission...unlike the DB9 with a torque tube that requires
several people to man handle and two days repair time. It uses a standard style clutch that lasts and lasts vs. the
DB9 that may last only 10k miles at best depending on your driving style. This is the best bonus of this car from a
mechanical repair aspect...and is added to the positive experience of DB7 ownership. Involvement with Ford in this
era had some great benefits. Being a retired Jaguar tech and extreme gearhead, I love the engineering that is
straight forward. I wish that they would have used this system in the Jaguar XK8...but then, that would have been
too much competition for the DB7 with the manual transmission...as Aston, Jaguar and Ford were all intertwined at
that time.



The car has always been in the South. It has never had any salty road exposure and most likely has never been
driven in the rain. The paint is flawless as in no chips, dings, dents or repairs whatsoever.

Overnight action from the 24 Hours of Le Mans

Sun, 23 Jun 2013 12:01:00 EST

We won't go into a recap here, but there are still leading positions being fought for in all classes - it's so close that leads are changing when a car goes into the pits. We'll let the recap wait until the end of the race, so for now enjoy some shots from last night's action at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

2012 Pebble Beach Concept Car Lawn offers a tutorial in cars to come

Sun, 19 Aug 2012 19:35:00 EST

The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is a showcase for some of the world's most exquisite vintage vehicles, but if newer metal is more your speed, the Concept Car Lawn is the place to be.
This year saw models from Bugatti, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, McLaren and Bentley as well as SRT, Hennessey, Infiniti and Lexus among others. The ultimate sampler platter of exotic and concept vehicles saw the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse mingle with the Lamborghini Urus Concept and the mighty Hennessey Venom GT, though we found ourselves particularly smitten with the BMW Zagato Roadster and the Aston Martin Vanquish.
Not that we could go wrong anywhere we looked. The 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed seemed perfectly content parked on the manicured putting green, as did the McLaren MP4-12C Spider. Get cozy with the full gallery below to see the smattering of metal on the lawn.

Aston Martin and Mercedes-AMG formalize technical partnership

Thu, 19 Dec 2013 16:01:00 EST

The development of a partnership between Mercedes-Benz and Aston Martin has been a long time coming. The news dates back to 2008, and over the five years since was supposed to lead to a rejuvenation of both the Maybach and Lagonda brands. That program ultimately fell apart, but the tie-in was forged afresh in July when the two automakers signed a letter of intent over a renewed partnership. And now that partnership has been formalized.
In a deal just announced, Mercedes-AMG will build a new V8 engine for Aston Martin that will power a new generation of luxury GTs for the British marque, presumably to replace the 4.7-liter V8 in the Vantage. The relationship appears to be similar to the one already in place between AMG and Pagani, only in this case, will involve Daimler taking as much as a five-percent stake in Aston Martin and an observer seat on Aston's board.
The technical partnership is also set to lead to the supply of electric and electronic systems, and could incorporate "additional areas of cooperation in the future." Whether that will include a fresh attempt at reviving Lagonda remains to be seen, as does the future of Aston's long-serving, Ford-based 6.0-liter V12 engine. But for now you can read the full announcement below.
