Indeed but the daily 15 mile run into my office and in the wider area, luckily South Lakeland District Council are hot on sorting out the few potholes that do appear!

Outside my patch I’ll be on the lookout for alloy wreckers... steering is über sharp for a GT though, hope my reactions are 😬

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
Ah! Nice to know that the car found a good home - I thought it was lovely and was a whisker away from buying it. The only thing I'd have done was swap the wheels for the gold ones (a friend has a Pentland Green car with tan and the gold wheels).

Apart from performances and styling which are incredible, green over tan on an British motor.... fantastic.

I’m so glad you didn’t ( for obvious reasons) it would have been a factory order in iridescent emerald and a long wait

Yes it’s come to a good home

You are in my neck of the woods. I will keep a look out and wave. Black V12 Vantage.

Not mine. A mate's. But it is stunning. One of the best I've seen. Which is why I liked the Volante above - almost its twin.

This one is mine

They did use those wheels on the 59, but they were an option on the standard DBS, and I have also put them on my DB11. I do know someone looking to sell a set if you're interested?

Not mine, but did have an enjoyable afternoon driving this round the Cotswolds this afternoon. A real improvement from the last drive of an early Vantage a couple of years ago.
