The Aston looks sweet in that picture. I am yet to spot this car on Mumbai streets!

Great catch though! The Vantage looks very gorgeous! I'm yet to see an Aston in the flesh (in India)

The aston sure does look nice. Wonder if they could get a video clip of it . Dying here to hear it. It has definitely got one of the loudest exhausts with a beautiful note to go with.
Really wish i could listen to her.

Its definitely the same vantage. i can make out from the number plate outline. Also the same combination (white+ fox red interiors) and without heavy tints.

I saw it in the city. I have seen an Aston in the city for the first time. I was with my friends, when I heard it, I knew something different is around me and when I saw it, I screamed on top of voice, this sent my friends in a state of confusion and they thought that there has been an accident.
On top of it, I started running and they followed only to realise that I was running for the car.

The car is indeed a DB9 which is owned by a close relative. The DB9 gives company to the Bently Flying Spur, A Bentley GT and an S350 to name the big ones.

Since the arrival of the DB9, a lot of people have been following it back to the owner's house. Usually there was an outside garage for the exotics but since the DB9 joined in, the owner parks them inside the driveway. Have driven it a few times and it is insane.

That color really suits the DB9 very well. Is it a TT2 or Manual transmission?

Sorry for the late reply buddy. It is indeed the Touch-tronic 2 transmission. And goes without saying shifting is a joy on this car.

It must be indeed , but I had to go with the manual option to truly feel this car. Where does the owner get this car serviced in Delhi?

To be honest i'm more of a manual person myself. I am currently not in the country but I will get back to you soon on this once i'm back. And I have to say you have one of the best if not the best collection of cars and a lot of knowledge and research about them.

Gorgeous white V8 Vantage. I love the wheels on this one!

Haven't blanked out the number plates as this car has made an appearance at the Mumbai Supercar show 2010.
