Yes I nicknamed the Volante the Spiderman edition due to the web stitching in bright red seats. Last of this generation Vanquish S so I'm sure this Coupe and Volante will be added to a collection...

Nice pictures...but that red interior blinded me...it is a little over the top I feel. But as they say one person's trash is another person's treasure...

Safe driving...rainy here in New Jersey today.

Post DB11 V8 / V12 Coupe interiors

The Blue V8 had a common dark interior but the V12 had a colour scheme that was different and luxurious looking:

Well...much better than the red interior...very detailed pics....I am sure everyone appreciates. I do!

Did you know the Vantage model was originally Suppose to have a rear engine not front engine? Ford killed it after they surveyed customers. How neat that car would have been to have...

Oh well...off into the rain with my non AM car...wife is hungry...mmm just realized she is cooking less and less...lol

Enjoy your day...

Excuse my ignorance on the new models but does that Ipad navigation screen thing fold away ? Can you opt to not have it if it doesnt fold away ?
It looks like crap sat there like a bump on a log ...ruins the flow of the dash .
And what is that leather wrapped cell phone looking thing where the shifter should be ?

That is current Mecedes tech controller and fixed screen.
I don't like the appearance of them in Mercedes either but that's what Aston had to work with into their design...

Post It's Family Day in Ontario so I was home when DHL arrived...

Slowly but surely I'm collecting the parts needed for my upgrade to Alpine Premium Audio project.

What arrived was the Alpine lead link harness to adapt from one amplifier to a pair:



Also the hardware (screws, spacers and tie bars) required to mount the new premium amps in the stock location using the OEM method:

Pleased to report I was able to find and purchase used premium amplifiers needed for the upgrade from standard audio (as a reasonable price).
They were bought as a pair removed from a 2007 Vantage being parted out.

The premium sub-woofer amp actually has a Volvo part number on it so keep that in mind if you are inspired to do this project.

Here are the pics of the amps received - I did get to hear the stereo working before they were pulled so I know they work:
