The beginning

After a reasonably extensive search, quite a bit of travel, but then doing my usual thing of falling head over heels for something and not giving up until I had it... this Vantage was mine:


  • Tungsten silver
  • Obsidian black leather interior
  • Tailors Grey Alcantara Headlining
  • 4.3 L V8 (AJ37) — bore 89 mm (3.5 in) stroke 86 mm (3.4 in)
  • 6 speed manual
  • low mileage for age
  • carbon fibre kick plates
  • 19" alloys finished in anthracite
  • Carbon fibre rear diffuser 
  • 6-slat bright finish grille
  • Heated front screen
  • Powerfold mirrors
  • 700W Premium Audio
  • Nouvalari sports backbox

So, a great spec, a great car, but there are some mods on my mind...
