100% committed to this... we can all go in on the car and we'll taunt him with it for eternity? ;-)

Well that is not very specific, there should be tones of those out there... The clear tails should be on any late 2009+, there is 2 type of sills... the N420 or the V8S/V12... 2012+ have a new center stack and as I have seen before most Lightning silver are obsidian black interior. Good luck

agreed you can also easily add clear tails and sills to most any Aston V8V to get an updated look

How disappointing. Thought you were looking for something really hard to find.

Lol... There are a few silvers from AM that are cool looking. Obsidian leather is wicked common.

Unfortunately that one is Tungsten silver. CNC has a nice selection of cars and has a good business in SoCal.

Havenít found any thus far. There is a 2009 model but too many previous owners and prefer 2010+. What would you guys consider hard to find combination?

I've personally passed over maybe 2-3 handfuls of lighting silver cars over the last 18 months.

Your issue isn't so much the color- it's the manual you want. Manual cars are much harder to find, people just don't sell them often.

There are no large differences between a 2009 and a 2010... The biggest model year changes are 2009 (the 4.7L engine) and 2012.25 (when they got larger brakes and the facelift). The 2009 didn't have the clear tails option, but that's an easy thing to change.

Wouldn't that be impossible to find? All the Centenaries were either Lighting Silver (ironic) or the 2 tone with Lighting Silver and Meteorite.

I believe that you are correct but even without the 100yrs anniversary it would be a hard car to find
