2007 Aston Martin Vantage on 2040-cars
Santa Anna, Texas, United States
Platinum Warranty (A) from LaSalle Warranty Group until September 25, 2015 (another 3 months). Not your typical
AMV8. Very well cared for ( I hand wash it using the AMMO NY method ) and upgraded. Installed wheel spacers, H&R
lowering Springs, custom hand-fabricated aluminum air intake (larger and smoother ID than the original ugly rubber
"snorkle" more air, more power), professionally painted over all exterior chrome (front grill, side grill slits,
window trim) and rims with Titanium Gunmetal (even the custom air intake). Car was tuned by Fastlane in December of
2013 to get every bit of power out of the engine. This car drives and handles superbly. The blue/ saddle leather
interior still has the most pleasant new-car aroma. Bluetooth, Aston Premium sound system, driver and passenger
adjustable power seats with adjustable lumbar control, heated seats, auto climate control, red caliper Aston brakes
(made by Brembo). Previous owner replaced the clutch at 16,000 miles (sooner than necessary, but one less thing to
worry about). New rotors and Carbotech brakes May 2014. Partial clear bra on the hood, mirrors and front of car. I
purchase nice cars to drive for a few months and then sell them. This car has been with me for 19 months now as it
is very difficult for me to part with. I only drive it twice a month and when the wife wants to go out in town;
hence the low miles: I only put about 4,200 miles in 18 months. **UPDATE: Due to failing state inspection, I just
had the dealer replace one O2 sensor, the catalytic convertor and the re-called seat heater unit. No issues with
this car. I am the 4th owner. Previous owners were in North Texas and Arizona. I have not titled the car since I
have Dealer Plates on it; original title in hand. There is normal wear and tear and the clear bra would be better
replaced with some of the newer technology.

In what must have looked and sounded to motorists on the M6 like an invasion of The Swarm, a parade of 50 enthusiast gems leaving a charity event were caught shooting down the on-ramp and merging into traffic. There were plenty of Porsches joining the 959 and Ducktail above, Aston Martins going back to the badboy V8 of the last millennium, a Ferrari Testarossa, a TVR and numerous other Easter eggs.
There were not, however, plenty of turn signals, with someone counting just five among the fifty engaging in proper use of the blinker. One reason put forth for that is the same reason we're posting this video, which is from last Summer, below: "because supercar." Enjoy.
Every year Evo stages its Car of the Year test, bringing the best performance cars in the world to one location for an epic shootout. This year the magazine pitted eight CotY finalists against each other on Route Napoleon in Southern France - Evo claims it's the "best road in the world" - and then proceeded to nitpick the smallest of faults on each car until the winner could be named. You see, this year's lineup of machines was just so good that only one car obviously wasn't CotY material from the get-go. Can you guess which one judging from the list below?
- Aston Martin V12 Vantage S
- Audi R8 V10 Plus
While slow sales and a $50,000 price tag may have been contributing factors to the Aston Martin Cygnet being cancelled last month, Aston Martin CEO Ulrich Bez is pointing the finger at Toyota for the demise of this luxurious little city car. In a discussion with Autocar, Bez is quoted as saying that the ultimate reason the Cygnet was cut is because Toyota plans on dropping the iQ (on which the Cygnet is based) in 2014 - a claim denied by the Japanese automaker.
Interestingly, the article also cites another publication reporting that a Toyota importer in the Netherlands heard the same news as Bez, and it has already stopped importing the cars. If the European Toyota iQ is cancelled, that would likely spell the end of the slow-selling Scion iQ in the US, which has sold just 3,365 units through September (a drop of 51 percent year over year).
Regardless of why production of the Cygnet ended, Bez also says that a lack of support from Toyota on the project prevented it from being offered in the US or receiving a supercharged engine, which are two factors that likely would have made the car appealing to more buyers.
