Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante 2007

Spotted in Sale a few weeks ago, this Aston Martin V8 Vantage convertible. It obviously has a 4.3 V8 engine under the bonnet which produces 380bhp. 0-62 takes 4.9 seconds and top speed of 175mph or 282km/h. This makes me think that I went to have a look round the Wilmslow dealership a couple of days ago and once again the people there were fantastic: very helpful, knowledgeable and passionate. It might look scary to go in one of these showrooms thinking you cannot afford anything there but they still remain "shops". You wouldn't think twice about going round a clothes shop and leaving it empty-handed thinking the clothes are too expensive, would you? Or would you hesitate to go into a museum to admire works of art? Probably not. Just try, go in, have a look around and remember the sales specialists there are car enthusiasts too who love sharing their passion (and generally cannot afford to drive these cars either!)

Lamborghini Aventador 2014

Today a Lamborghini Aventador spotted along the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris. The Aventador is the lastest "big Lambo" with a 6.5 V12 engine developing 700bhp. 0 to 62mph is reached in only 2.9 seconds and the top speed of the beautiful Italian is 217mph or 349km/h. Spray it black and I reckon you end up with a brand new "Batmobile"!
