Gday was trying to post on your forum but it would not let me you may put them up if you
wish

These photo's were sent to me from a mate yesterday(thanks Roy), He was sitting at his
desk when he heard a screch followed by a bang, screch-bang-bang, he looked out the window
and saw a dark grey car wiz past as it took out a no standing sign with post attached which
cleared the fence and hit the side of his office, then continued to run into his front gate
and stop, he run out to see if anyone was hurt when two mechanics jumped out of the Aston
Marton. The two mechanics (in thier twenties) were road testing the customers new car, they
lost control and hit the first tellegraph pole, the car then continued onto the foot path
got it dead centre and snaped the second pole in half, then hitting the no standing sign
breaking it off at ground level and finally coming to a stop at the gate entrance. This is a
short quiet street in Rose Hill N.S.W yesterday. How fast do you think these d**k heads were
going ? and I wonder if they are still holding down thier jobs today. The scary part for me
is they are same dealership that we have ordered our new M3 through. I think I will do the
predelivery road test myself.

How strong are these cars to be able to take a hit like that and the mechanics get out and
walk away.

Don't think the owner would want it back no matter how well they fix it.

OMG I know the car its got UK registration, I used to work there a while back. Its not a new car at all its like 5 years old (Vanquish S has been out of production for 2 years) Shows you how strong it is if it went through 2 power poles and 2 people walk away. Try having that accident in a Ferrari or a Lambo, you wouldnt live to tell (there again would you want to live after crashing a Vanquish?) but I must say in their defense its not in their character to drive like maniacs.
