We have recently completed the 4th edition/update to the guide, which has a few additions and enhancements bringing the guide fully up-to-date including the following additions -

A new front cover image (see above).

Two pages on the very latest 12.5 model year V8 Vantage.

Summary details on Q-by Aston Martin (including colour collection information).

An extra page on the VH-Platform.

A single page introduction to the One-77 supercar.

Four new "section" opening pages (new images designed to make the book even easier to navigate).

A small piece on the new DBS Ultimate.

Further technical additions and updates to all the many sections.

Although the core book is still the same, this latest update fits in with our aim to continually update and improve the guide. Unfortunately there was a delay gaining information and new image approval from Aston Martin, during which we sold out of the 3rd edition, but we are now good to go. The new update is with the printers and we now expect to be able to despatch the new edition by the end of May.

A huge thank you once again to all those that have contributed to the guide (including some well known PH's) and for the great response from buyers and enthusiasts thumbup. We will send a PDF update to all those that have already purchased the guide, but this is likely to be after the 4th edition hits the streets (not enough hours in the day at the moment!).

You can order the latest guide at the usual address www.astonmartinreview.co.uksmile

I ordered this book over 3 weeks ago and was told there were delays due to a new edition coming out. I still haven't heard anything despite a follow up e mail.

Humble apologies for the delay, but A.M. are ultra busy at the moment and it took ages to get new information and approval on some new images ( front cover, One-77, etc) this was only given at the end of last week. The book is with the printers and they have given a delivery date for the end of May. This has been totally beyond our control, so thanks for bearing with us.
Cheers for understanding guys bow

Hi Neil, a little bit later than expected - just after the queens celebrations this weekend - delivery is promised for June 8th thumbup with dispatch ASAP. Apologies again for the delay on this one, the books are usually sent straight out, but as mentioned this one was beyond our control. When you look at the AM310 project, V12 Vantage (and more) you can understand how busy A.M's. Press office have been. Anyway nearly there, thanks again for your patience.

You wicked man biggrin we can't even talk about the new "V" car let alone reveal full specs, not without a Rapide full of top lawyers anyway wink we have include a picture of the AM310 and a few hints though. But I'll wait until we have driven it and seen the definite final spec and price before we include full details in a future guide.
