Some days are better than others. Lost a few pounds, inches, cylinders, ponies and $, but gained a beast in my garage.

Visceral, and closest experience to riding a motorcycle. A good day indeed.





Say hello, wave goodbye.





Wheres my cheque book?

I love that you LOST cylinders and still ended up with a V12.

Just reading the text I knew you'd traded in either a Bentley, a Bugatti, or a '37 Caddy.

Oops. Just checked it does have 12 of them things. Just like the W12 Bentley. That's why the GO! pedal works so well.


Must have been a Freudian slip, I was looking at the GT and then made the mistake of driving this.

Oops. I was thinking the Bentley was a W16 but some googling tells me the W16 is reserved for the Bugatti.

So you didn't lose any cylinders, just moved them into a more pleasing shape.

You didn't lose any cylinders, you lost 1 V by going from a 2 V or a W to a 1 V engine. Or lost a W and gained a V....

Very nice wheels. Do you mind sharing what size tires you have for your 20 inch wheels?

I'm considering switching out to Michelin Pilots too, and my car is on 20s right now.

Not a bad line on this design; thank you Ian and Henrik.

Car is shown leaving first ever Cars and Coffee at the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn (August 30, 2015). What a success, about 300 cars attended, but just one Aston, mine!

The "Hall" is surrounded by Ford Motor Company's Research and Engineering Center and The Henry Ford, the museum and antique village housing Henry Ford's collection of Americana.

In the picture, across the street, is a wing of Ford"s Dearborn Design Center.

Love the blue and yellow together!

I'm really digging the black roof to blend the front and rear glass.
