Don't worry Jonby; there's a finale with Pussy Galore firstsmile

In answer to the OP, the idea of some form of run-out model has been discussed on these pages a fair bit. But details are scarce...

Its a run out model, all sold according to Cheltenham who I had a call from this week

GT12 power and an interior that will make you envious or something like that

No this is track only AMR Pro Car.
.
The Vantage AMR is a limited edition road going version which celebrates the end of Vantage production and the beginning of AMR series cars which is equivalent to BMW M and Mercedes AMG. I believe they are officially announcing this coming Friday.

Should be a good car to buy if the GT is anything to go by?

Oh I didn't realize.

They don't believe it will be offered in the USA. No more Vantages shipped here except maybe a few 2017 V12S already ordered. V8 ended here with 2016 model year.

Yes you guys (USA) received 100 numbered manual V12 Vantage S if I understand correctly - were they all coupes or could you order roadsters within that run ?

Galpin and Los Gatos Aston Martin have V12 manual roadsters in stock. Looks like quite a few V12 manuals in dealer stock out there.

Buddy of mine bought one as a roadster. Not sure how many made it over here, though.

Well I've said I have something coming later this year Graham so in theory I could tell you about it now. I could tell you about it on Friday. I don't plan on doing either :-)

Sounds wonderful Derek/Kevin. Not sure why people are connecting it to the fact I have something incoming !

As for the suggestion in another thread

16th is of course Friday. I'm not aware of plans to announce anything on Friday, but Aston will be at Le Mans and they normally have 2-4 cars at the front of their hospitality unit, including anything new(ish), sometime in combination with a car launch, like this


So as I'm at Le Mans and in Aston hospitality (I think this will be my 8th consecutive year), I'll keep an eye out for anything new and report back accordingly !
