Today was the ‘Simply Aston Martin’ event at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu. Owners of cars that wore the iconic badge, were able to display their vehicles for everyone to see. I was fortunate enough to attend and marvel over some of the most desirable cars ever made.
Unfortunately, in the UK we miss out on some cars that some other countries (like the US of A) get. It’s a real shame when you hear that a new car is being released, but then you find out that the only way of acquiring one is to either import it or move abroad. With that slightly depressing thought in mind, we are now going to look at all the cars you can’t get if you live in England. Enjoy…
Just before I get into this list I want to specify there is no order. All three films choices are based on my own opinion and let me tell you it was hard enough to narrow it down to just three. Anyway, onto my first film, Baby Driver. Probably the most stylish out of all the movies on this list, Baby Driver combines slick driving and action with one of the best soundtracks in cinema history.
First on my list is the new baby Aston, a true modern sports car. Under the bonnet is a twin-turbo charged AMG V8 with over 500bhp that’s bound to wake the neighbours in the morning, and that’s in addition to an almost 50/50 weight distribution due to the engine being mounted just in front of the driver. On paper the Vantage already sounds both fun and fast so hopefully it will be able to carry on and improve upon the previous car’s epic legacy.
