The ///M's visit Aston Martin HQ

PH Sunday Service and the usual gaggle of 1M's/M3's make then monthly pilgrimage, and this month Gaydon, the home of Aston Martin.

^V8 Vantage edit: Volante... Convertible. From the 80s

I love the One 77.

About 15 years ago I drove a 1961 DB4 Superleggera from Amsterdam to Groningen. The sound of that inline 6 carburettor engine and 240BHP. Awesome.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers
Robin

Astons are the most elegant and best sounding exotics. One-77 is mind blowing, I am day dreaming to catch the only one in Chile in action on the streets one day.

The One-77 are truly gorgeous in person. I took a tour of the AM factory dealership near London last summer. They had a one-77 that was vinyl wrapped from the Gumball rally. The owner raced it in the rally and then shipped it back to the UK for service. If you can afford a $1.2m pound AM, you can afford to have the factory do the maintenance...

The facility manager was telling us that all but a few of the 77 sold were purchased and shipped to the Middle East.

Not surprised. The only one in Chile is owned by a bank CEO which might be from the family that owns the bank.

The one above was from somewhere in Europe and the owner brought it back to the factory for some work, or probably a service lol

Lovely pics. AM should move there technology in terms of transmission mainly as they are way behind the competition and there car prices are too much compared to cars in the same segment.
