Chassis No. S00656/ Build No. 269689 - Lightning Silver over Aurora Blue, and believed to be one of two in this combination, and according to the Spring 2020 Issue of AMOC Quarterly, one of 207 in the U.S.A. This car was spec'd with the B&O audio system, and the standard seats (like all U.S.-bound V12 Vantages). First sold in 2012 by Aston Martin of Dallas, then acquired from the same dealer in 2016 by a friend. I finally took over care of S00656 in late 2019. After I bombarded my friend with for-sale advertisements for various V12 Vantages, he finally got the hint and proposed a transaction, which I eagerly accepted). I joined AMOC shortly after that - and recently attended my first AMOC meeting just before the Covid-19 Crisis leading up to this Virtual Concours. The colors (both exterior and interior) seem to morph under different lighting conditions - love how the aurora blue interior can sometimes look almost purple under certain lighting, and lightning silver is just spectacular in person).
While most of the photos show the car against the "golden" hills of California, the wildcard photo shows the car against the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean with ominous storm clouds on approach - a perfect summary of 2020 thus far.
