      Car Appreciation
      Nov 10, 2007 08:53:09 pm
      As a keen car enthusiast, I thought I'd start a topic for cars! See what makes everyone tick!?

      Start off with an exotic number..... Lamborghini Revington







      Only 20 getting made? It's a damn shame! £800,000 though?  8) I'll have two!  ;)

      Hehe. Car Porn. Tut tut.

      I was driving from Tesco at home with my boyf and there was this, I think Porsche, it was lush, it was like a dark purple colour, and my boyf said something like "I'd w*nk over that car" or something along those lines.. I was like WTF but he said all guys say it but it just means it's a lush car. Whatever! Haha.

      CRK, you must have read my mind, seriously I was only thinking of this the other day.

      A thread on the lines of something like. What does your car say about you?  How funny is that?

      I'm really into cars. love really nice cars, trouble is, people are jealous and scratch them and you daren't leave them anywhere.

      I drive a Mercedes A - Class which is a great little car, easy to park, and your a little bit higher up when driving, we've also got a TVR sports car which is great fun to drive,  especially with the roof down, fast too.

      I quite like the Focus ST and Honda Civic Type R as affordable cars.

      My dream car would be an Aston Martin, any of them would do, beautiful machines.

      My friend has a.. omg.. an MG sports car is all I know hehe, with a soft top, 2 seater, (totally deserves it, has worked her ass of since she was 16, even through uni, now has a job as a teacher, brilliant girl!!) ..And she said if anyone was gonna damage her car they would slash the roof.. and about 3 months after she got it, it was parked outside a church while she was at Slimming World meeting (why I will never know) and the roof got absolutely slashed it was ripped to shreds! And it costs about £2k to fix aswell. B*stards.

      I drive a P-Reg Corsa :P

      I always describe cars like that though, it's definitley a lad thing! ;) Not that fussed on most Porsches though, funny enough!

      Certainly worth the investment!  8)

      This on the other hand..... a blazingly quick machine!

      Ferrari P4/5





      AND then we have the slightly more affordable Vauxhall VXR8

      Revington? Don't they make electric shavers?  :lmao:
      Looks like you could have a shave with this beast too!

      **************************************************************

      This gets my vote... and I have sat in the drivers seat of an Aston Marin - the V12 Vanquish at the showroom in Newport Pagnell... :gt-happyup: ...a fantasy that came true after watching James bond drive the DB5 in Goldfinger many years before. I could actually start my own Aston Martin thread as I have a few good stories to tell![

      Aston Martin Vanquish S
      Ultimate Edition


      Aston updates Vanquish flagship - Final 40 examples get a new look!




      Aston Martin is offering two new developments for both new and existing customers of the company’s flagship Vanquish S -- the car that starred in the Bond film 'Die Another Day'.

      Just 40 examples of a new Vanquish S Ultimate Edition will be handcrafted at the company’s Newport Pagnell production facility in Buckinghamshire -- and they'll be the last off the line.

      The Ultimate Edition centres on changes to the Vanquish S’s renowned colour and trim. On the exterior, these changes include a unique Ultimate Black – a new colour only available with this car. Inside, the Vanquish S cabin is trimmed in a semi-aniline leather, with coarse stitching, leather headlining and black chrome finish interior fittings. Each car will also be fitted with personalised sill plaques denoting the limited edition number.

      Performance is the same as the standard Vanquish S, and remains the fastest-ever production Aston Martin, capable of a top speed in excess of 200mph --
      and the price is the same too: £182,095.

      The Ultimate Edition is an end-of-line model, which Aston said would "be available by special request to customers wishing to celebrate the last of a significant car in Aston Martin’s history." The company reckoned initial feedback suggested the whole allocation of this special edition will be sold within weeks of launch.

      For existing Vanquishes, Aston’s Works Service department is offering a transmission conversion from the car’s existing auto shift manual (ASM) system, to a conventional gearstick manual.

      Since its launch in 2001, the Vanquish's auto box has been equipped with paddles that change gears in under 250 milliseconds, and works in either auto or manual mode.

      Working in conjunction with the company’s special vehicles operations team from Gaydon, AM said it's Works Service department developed the system over the last 12 months, before previewing the conversion to "selected Vanquish customers".

      Customer service manager Kingsley Riding-Felce said: “This project underlines our commitment to adapting to customer requests, whether they are for Aston Martins from the past or modern cars such as the Vanquish S.”

      The modification is available now, priced from £13,250 (plus VAT).

      About the Vanquish S

      Aston Martin's top-end model is built in the company's traditional fashion, by hand, one at a time, with an individual craftsman taking responsibility for the creation of every car. It takes just over 396 man hours to create each car, or around six weeks from raw materials to the finished article.

      It houses a 6-litre V12 generating 520bhp and 425lb-ft of torque, enabling the luxury 2+2 to hit 60mph from rest in 4.8 seconds.


      In preparation for production of the Vanquish, the factory at Newport Pagnell in Buckinghamshire, England, received a multi-million-pound refurbishment that included an all-new assembly line, paint shop, rolling road and water test facility, which simulates monsoon conditions to ensure a watertight interior. Today, technicians who used to hold old-fashioned welding guns now wield dual-feed adhesive guns to bond together composite components, crash structures and aluminium panels.

      Any one got a few quid spare that they'd like to donate to a good cause?! Perhaps not but I could put it on my Christmas wish list and leave it at the end of my bed for Father Christmas...  ::) :D

      Some more nice reading on this beautiful car:
