Are those bonnet vents painted body coloured..?
Also no Virage aluminium seat controls, shame as that's a nice touch.
Great looking car, haven't seen it in such a staid colour before. The lairiness of a convertible is somewhat balanced by the muted colour - I like the effect
Well you may like mine then as that's the colour I've gone for ! You can't see the amazing metallic fleck of Ceramic grey in those pics though. I suspect the bonnet vents are an optical illusion
I've gone for all silver wheels as a special request whilst the one in the pic has a graphite two tone effect - both are from V12V Coupe but standard on V12VR is black and Diamond Turned, with no officially available option, which shows just how unrepresentative these early cars are. Really is a bit potty - the red & white one in the review is in a scheme so unusual that the factory won't price it unless you make a request for a feasibility study and the two cars doing the rounds in the UK & Europe respectively have options on that aren't officially available !
The plaque is a standard V12 Vantage plaque unlike the numbered plaques that will appear on the production models, so whilst I agree on the seat controls, these early non-production spec (cosmetically) V12VRs are not necessarily a good indicator - by the time it is in production, who knows whether they will be making it onto Vantages ?
I really wanted a light interior (not carpet though) which I thought would look great but was worried it wouldn't stand up to heavy use, particularly being a drop top, hence going for lords red interior
