Ive been wrestling with this decision for some time now but I have finally decided to trade in the Viper and the Z on an '03 Aston Martin Vanquish. Its titanium with charcoal interior. Im excited as all get out about the Vanquish but a little sad to see the Z and Viper go. Im trading the cars in this weekend. The Vanquish is scheduled to arrive in late July/early August. I will post pics when it comes in.

I plan on picking up a '97 blue/white GTS in about a year or so.

Ive never heard a sweeter sound than the exhaust from the Vanquish's v-12. but im gonna have to get used to the F-1 shifter but what the hell, we all have to make sacrifices! lol!

u guys dont mind if i keep hanging around the Alley do ya?

That is a truly beautiful and distinctive car. Very cool. Any way to wait on the trade in until the Vanquish is actually here?

thank you. there is but it requires me putting a large sum down and then not putting any miles on the two im trading in so the values dont change. i would just rather bite the bullet and get the ball rolling taking as little risk as possible.

Lawboy, I would be interested obviously in checking out your Aston Marting after you get it. It is on my short list of next cars and have yet to spend anytime looking at one. I am debating on the Vanquish or the Bentley Continental GT (W12 Twin Turbo!).

Its supposed to arrive before the Austin GTG. I plan on driving it down for the weekend. If you are coming to the GTG, you can check it out all you want! See u there.

thanks guys! im excited about the Aston. its not quite as quick to 60 as the Viper and of course doesnt have the torque. but above that I believe it compares quite favorably. It has 460 bhp but heavy as hell. top speed over 190 mph. Its built more in the mode of a lambo...a high speed autobahn cruiser.

gotta tell u tho that i had real trouble handing over the keys to the viper. i finally convinced myself by promising that i would buy a '97 blue/white gts by next summer. ;)

Just fucking with you man. We all know that car is fucking bad ass and we all hope to see it with you at the VA meet. If you don't bring it, I figure you should be banned for misleading our wonderful community! :rofl: :rofl:

Nice choice. VERY VERY unique and distinctive. I have no idea why Bitten posted a picture of the econobox above tho.

Oh, I'll be there all right. Just not sure what I'll be driving.

Snakebitten, just wait for the 400hp V8 version due out next year before you get too excited.
