I guess you won't be needing the feedback on the problems of the GTR.

Great choice mate, congratulations.

Congrats ecks! Nice car indeed. Aston has always been a class apart.
It's all about style. Great pick.

And how do you get your cars so soon? Which importer does that?
I am really very curious, as to such this cars have waiting periods and you get them within a month!!

thanks for fulfilling my wish Ecks. So can we see a ferrari in your garage soon. Most here cant even dream of owning such a collection and to imagine ,you are actually living the dream. You are one lucky guy Ecks and hats off to your choice of cars. There are plenty who have the money but very few who have the taste and you defenitely have an excellent taste for amazing cars.

I did not choose the V12 vantage because of its engine. I love the V8 in this Vantage and I already have a hulking V12 in my garage (not that I don't have two V8's already) , but I just couldn't get the feel of a V12 in this baby aston. The showroom will open in Delhi by the 2nd quarter of 2010.

I posted a picture a couple of pages back of the exact car I am getting from England.

The only cars that we got through an importer were the Audi R8 and now this AMV8. Rest all were bought through the official dealers. The Audi was in stock with a dealer in England and so was the AMV8. Both of them have the options we chose and hence we get them picked up.

Yes it is a nice color but I really fell in love with the Pearl White Vantage.

Yes Avishar I am very well aware of that model. If anything, you should know that I do my 100% research on cars that I am interested in. So mine was a very well informed decision.

I meant that exact car. It is with a dealer in England.

Congrats Ecks for the new entrant in your stable. If memory does not fail you did mention the only convertible that would be considered would be the AM convert, so any perticular reason for not going in for the convertible considering all the others are hardtops in the garage. Let me guess security and the weather, would be the answer. This baby is classy for sure and a better choice than the GTR, not that it is a bad car or something but considering you got three sports one cruiser in comparrison would be nice. Drive safe bro.
A friend of mine has the White AM vantage in Bombay and a person i know has the Maroon one in Pune.
