Great day out yesterday over the roads of North Devon and Somerset.
A tad wet and windy up on Dunkery Beacon but most enjoyable to be out again driving with friends smile

Well I drove mine for the first time today!

Oh hello everyone from a miserable windy and rain sodden Lune Valley ( Northernmost tip of Lancashire )

Even the weather couldn’t spoil how spectacular this Aston is!
Hi Simon, I'm guessing you've got a DBS, post us a picture.

I've lurking around on Pistonheads for years, but had my first drive in an Aston on Friday when i drove her home, exciting isn't it.

Hi Simon, yes very exciting indeed!

Beautiful beast of a car , effortless performance on my local sweeping roads and the nearest traffic lights are 20 miles away ( just in case I can’t get all that power down and get shown up when red turns to green by a super lightweight sports car😁)

I almost bought a car with that exact spec from Cambridge, just before lockdown. I loved the colour. In the end, I couldn't part with my Vanquish.

Thanks everyone...

It’s good old fashioned Pentland Green, once common on the sc6 and Vantage DB7’s but rare in the last 20 years with the advent of silver grey and black.

Cambridge car ...moved to Wilmslow ( who were a brilliant revelation to deal with btw!!!)

Bought without a test drive as I just knew it would tick every single box I required!

Nice to be back in an Aston after 15 years... considering a hunter vantage roadster... in a much more lurid colour of course for the household

Those wheels on the DBSS look like wagon wheels! They are effing huge, and the tyres profile like a rubber band. I hope those alloys are forged because with all our potholes, the likelyhood of cracking might be as common as the 19's and 20's cracking all the time.

Looks awesome tho'
