I Love cars. Always did, always will. Ever since I was a wee little girl, I love the noises they make when they roar at full throttle. I love the looks of the sleek lines telling the air where to flow. I love the smell of high octane petrol and leaking oil. But even more than all that, man, do I love to drive them !
Most of my attention gets peaked by classic cars, and modern cars with a Character -you know, those you just recognize from far away by their exhaust and their looks-. That is why I am most crazy about Aston Martins.
Looking through pictures in books, magazines, on sites… Time and time again, one way or another, my gaze would always end up on the vantage V12. THE Aston Martin in my eyes. (I mean, even Slash traded his DBS for a V12V. And if a Rockstar says it’s ‘real fun’…)
One beautiful Sunday afternoon in 2018, I suddenly receive a call from my brother, audibly stoked: he had found ‘my car’. A very first batch perfectly conditioned, road experienced, Hammerhead Silver ’09 V12 Vantage Manual.
The very next week-end we went on a sibling-bonding road trip to look for the car (after spending the whole weak collecting info on all its tweaks and ‘potential reasons *not* to buy') only to end up responding when the seller asked me: “Do you need to think about it?”
“No, this one is mine.”
Personal choice: IT EVEN HAS A BOOT ! :)
