Aston Martin 2009 models - Photoshoot
« on: December 03, 2008, 11:30:56 pm »
Monday was one of the best days of my life, 9hrs of driving heaven pretending to be James Bond.

At 8am I went to the exotic dealer here (with 2 others, thanks guys) to pick up 2009 variants of the Aston Martin DBS, DB9 and V8 Vantage Roadster. For the next 9hrs we drove these beasts around, swapping cars at each stop so we could get a taste for all of them.

First stop was a hangar out at the airport via the tunnel (NOISY!) for a photoshoot with a $30M private jet, amazing setting. After that we drove through Midland, Swan Valley and various surrounding areas.

At the end of the day I took a mate for a lap in the DBS before we headed back to give the cars back...sad time. :(

My quick driving impressions:

The DBS was just mind blowing, one of the best manuals I've driven and suprisingly easy, the sound, those monster brakes (395mm carbon ceramics). It did seem to lack a bit of low down grunt for a 510hp 6L V12, but it piled on speed like crazy! I was totally in love. One thing to note, need to clutch in to start it....just like Evos! :D

The V8 Vantage needed a manual 'box, the sports shift in it ruined the car - way too harsh on changes and jerky at low speed. One of the best sounding V8's out there though and very stiff/well sorted for a convertible especially.

The DB9 didn't do that much for me to be honest, although the auto was 100x better than the sports shift in the V8 it just didn't excite me all that much. The interior colour didn't help with making me enjoy where I was haha. Still an awesome cruiser though that would be perfect for a quiet drive down south.

Enough crap, pics:

Holy f*uckin' sh*t!!! Stunning pictures!!  :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :drool: :drool: :drool:

And the cool thing is the DBS looks boring next to the other two. The DB9 looks great in white and the V8 looks damn good with those new wheels  :cool:

They almost look like model cars in that super clean hangar!

Doesn't get much better than this, mate!

wow, save-as all of them  :good: :mrgreen:

Congrats for the shooting, amazing shot. The Hangar light conditions and the cleanroom-style environment gave a perfect location.
I still try to find time for a DBS shooting, I agree with you for the Vantage V8 sound.

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow... and wow. Did I say wow enough times?! I don't think so... Wow, wow, wow, wow, and WOW!! Those pics with the trio at the hangar are stunning, seriously... this is by far your best photosession EVARR! :good:

And the DBS... what a beautiful car! I though you just couldn't beat the DB9 in terms of style and class... but the DBS just mades the DB9 bland and almost boring! :)
