Gorgeous looking thing. Are they any good?

The gearboxes let them down as they are automated manuals, like the BMW SMG system.  Epic motors though, but as always with a V12 you don't talk fuel economy figures, but fuel consumption figures :)

There are a couple of manual V12 vantages in Australia but they are not the updated S versions.

I presume they are importing the manual V12VS here?  I know it hasn't long been released and is a dogleg 1st box.

None of the manual v12 vantage S are coming to Australia is my understanding, only the auto/paddle shift.

2009 to 2013 were available in manual and special carbon black edition 2011 and 2012

The paintshop that does all my cars is the authorised Aston repairer. I've seen a few of these there over the years. Gorgeous looks and a sound to die for. Beautiful interior quality too; but starting to date.
It's a luxury GT car that would make a great daily driver; but I don't think they would be great in spirited driving.

Which paint shop do you use?
