Viper98912 is an unknown quantity at this point
Yea, that's nice. And Volante too.

I'm a fan of the one next to it though.

Midnight blue over Sandstorm/Baltic blue. '14 with 1.7k miles (very low, but they pretty much all are). A world apart from the '07 DB9 I had. The thing I like the most is the extra leg room. And the updated interior is very nice. The sound is absolutely epic.

Beauty shot and interior...(dark blue never looks as good in the sun as it does under artificial lighting, unfortunately).

It's really gorgeous! How do you like the shape and overlay piece of the instrument cluster? They carried that concept into the DB11.

It's much less of an overlay than on the DB11, but still not as nice as the hood on Vantage/DB9/DBS. But thankfully it has real gauges, unlike the DB11. To me, the 11 has moved too far from the 9 interior wise and has lost its uniqueness as compared to other luxury brands.

I used to think the Vanquish interior lacked the interest of the DBS's, but over time I've come to appreciate the design on its own merits. DB11? Don't know if I'll ever get there.

Nice step up. I think they are much better looking than the DB11.
