Yup, I dont think anyone has seen it. What I have heard is that this DB7 (with DC) was brought to form a base for making the V8 Vantage Prototype.

Ford and Noble were cheesed off with the self publicity that he gave which violated confidentiality agreements. He has been blacklisted by them

I remember a very long article in ACI on the design of the prototype. Was that the reason for being blacklisted?

Default noble project

yes , i remember the smashing looking yellow proto based on a m12 . A noble officer wrote to ACI saying they had no plans to built the prototype . Maybe the design was not quite sync with the companies design language.

Breaching confidentiality - he really was not supposed to talk about what he did in depth.

Eh? What exactly do you mean? Are you saying DC designed the DB7 or the Vantage?

DC had done the prototype for the Aston V8 Vantage. The car you saw is the DB9 Volante which is very much in Mumbai.

I meant maybe DC used the Front end design off from the Aston...and put it up in one of his new creation..
Because after he prototyped the Aston..some of his cars had that feel of the Aston itself.
It was Just a thought..
But since other members say that there is a Martin out there..then it has to be true..

Also How come no Team Member capture her?

I saw a Black Aston Martin last night at the Juhu circle. It looked new and went towards 4/7 bungalows. The exhaust note was amazing.

the car you talk of cyrus belongs to a friend of mine and is from south bombay itself. its pictures have been posted on the site and it comes for some of the rallys whenever my friend is in town.
the etype you talk of could the white one repainted or the car from indore which has been bought by someone from Bombay.
