Default Aston Martin in MUmbai ????

Dear all,

i was on my way home from worli to andheri at around 2 last night.

And suddenly at around Hinduja i saw an aston martin (db9 i think).

Can you guys confirm if there is an aston in mumbai ???

Because this was my first sighting of this exotic.

cheers.

There was some talk about an Aston DB9 Volante being in Mumbai. Maybe its the one you saw then.

There's certainly a DBS if I'm not mistaken.

another very very wierd thing was . . .i did not hear it. . .i mean if there is a super car coming even at a very low RPM you hear a very heavy HMM. But i did not hear it.

May be becase i was on my bullet, and she is really loud also i had my helmet on ???

but still it makes me think.

The Martins, on low revs, are virtually like a standard car. It's when they're pushed, do you heard the beastly vail. I love Astons! Start up a Ferrari or a Lambo, and it'll hum loudly throughout. An Aston will start loud, be soft and roar exactly when you need it to.

couldnt see the colour as it was dark, but i saw those lovely periceing eyes and its killer xenon lights. . . and that unmistakable grill.

and yeah probably as you guys said it must have been on a higher gear on lower rpm and hence i did not hear it, i must comment he was driving rather slow.

It was never his, it was sent over to be torn up and used for the DB9 prototype.

DC likes to faff around with the cars before tearing them down.
