Ah the DB4 'Roadster' in the style of a Zagato/DBR1 'Special' beautiful car... That looks like the Le Mans Classic in 2008. smile

Here you go, there's a lot about this on the AMOC site but it's down at the moment.

Aston Martin DB4 'Zagato' Special - a modern fantasy on the Zagato theme. Built by Aston Engineering in 2001, the aim was to create an open-topped version of the DB4GT Zagato in keeping with tradition: a car such as the factory might have developed in 1960 if a convertible model had ever been specified.

No, it is Meteorite Silver.

Aston do so many shades of nearly the same colour: Tungsten, Mercury, Meteorite, Hammerhead, Quantum and Casino Royale. It is easy to get confused rolleyes

In person it much easier to tell the colors apart. Meteorite was a great color. When I got mine it was a tough call between Tungsten and Meteorite. I ended up with the Tungsten but there really wasn't a wrong decision between the two.

Some shots of my DB7 GT, taken this Easter Weekend.






















I will get some interior shot's up soon.. The only GT in the world to have this paint colour and trim option.

It's nice to be different.. in some ways at least :-)

Well it is officially the only "GT" to have this colour,, I believe there are 4 GTA's and a few Vantages that have it also.

It's a Ferarri colour, basically Gun Metal Grey metallic.

It's a funny colour as it can look different depending on the light, I saw the colour components once on a screen and all I can remember is that it had some Yellow in there. :-)

I like the coloured door shuts.

Snake pass eh? not done that road yet in the GT, I have been across that high bridge over the M62, Saddleworth Road and then proceeded back towards Manchester on A640 New Hey Road before rejoining the M62 again.

A good road for some awesome photo's is the one from Ingleton to Hawes (B6255), past White Scar Caves and the Ribblehead Viaduct which you can actually drive right beneath.

I'm thinking of taking a drive up there soon for some nice Spring time photo's using the Viaduct as a back drop.

Anyone interested in heading that way for some photo time, might be good to try and organise a date and time so we can all share some great photo's.

I will take my Pro SLR 35mm camera kit, HD digicam and a std digicam.

If anyone is interested in this impromptu photo trip/meet, maybe you can create a new thread about it.. if one does not appear then I'll ignore the idea smile

I guess these could have been wrapped as well but where do you stop, boot, engine bay?
