Simply a stunner. In my opinion , it looks better than the LP640. Its a bit of a cliche, but it actually looks like James Bond wearing a tight tuxedo! Really muscular and big and a long hood. Back looks amazing. Ground clearance is plenty and it goes over speed bumps easily.

2 - Driving dynamics :

Didn't get to push the car , due to delhi traffic , but it sounds amazing! It pulls in any gear from any rpm I could give it and the trick valves in the exhaust open up after 4.5K RPM and it really growls after that. Steering is very responsive and light and so is the clutch and the gearbox.

3 - Comfort

Very comfortable to drive. It seems slotted , in terms of driving comfort , between the M3 and the LP640. Seats are very supportive and very very comfortable. Interior build quality is as I expected it to be.

Amazing car overall . Was stuck in Delhi traffic most of the time so I could not push it at all, but a head turner for sure and very comfortable to drive.

WoW, what a stunner ! Silver hasn't looked so good in any car. Congratulations !
And I agree, this does look better than the LP, maybe not as loud in appearance but it's better overall. Will certainly be the best looker of your garage even after the California is here.

Congratulations KD! Lovely car.

At this point I must add that I like the 458 more every time I see new pics or video of it! I think I've changed my mind! ;-)

Beauty is a form of genius—is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation.
It is of the great facts in the world like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark water of that silver shell we call the DBS.

Congratulations on that beautiful silhouette!

Hi Karan. Heartiest congo's man.
BTW now i figured why you swapped your Alpine White M3 with the Jerez black one.. ' taki is garage nu kisi di nazar na lage' right?? LOL just kidding bro. But you need a good amount of nazarpattus for this sort of garage. Amazing choice of machines .
God Bless.

Jain.

Leave alone 50%, even if I could make 10% of the sum total, I will be garnishing my coveted posession list with a R35 GTR. Aint that really an achievement?

HI Karan can you please take some on road pictures of the aston on the way back. Would love to see your cars someplace else other than your garage.
