you have to admit, this is the sheer pinnacle of Britich engineering :mrgreen:
Speed and style,
Try the VX220/ Lotus Exige, best fun you can have for the price of a mundarno
Hows about a car from a non-American Car Company- owned- company?
(Did that make any sense??)
define american, if its were the company is registered for tax, then its
american. but do you really care how car companies pay there tax?
DB9 oooooooooohhhhhhhhhhh whos the daddy
I am talking about how when one goes to thier site you can simply click on Aston Martin BECAUSE IT IS OWNED BY FORD!!! TRY IT OUT IF YOU WISH.... THUS THE URL!!! :banghead: :cussing:
Who owes ford mateee? you and i and a load of pension companies. So if 2 oil shakes 51% or more does that make ford saudi arabian?
now i doubt that will ever happen (and i believe its sheik)
40% of ford is owned by Bill Ford. Then comes the line of ford executives that own quite a lot, so it should never come to that.
Having said that, if you really do own ford stock, maybe you should choose more wisely.
but you see my point. naaah dont own any of ford, who would really want to!
yes, you make a valid point.
Umm... what does "rofl" mean... ???

Indeed you are, yes lol..I'm 21 going on 22 :thumbs:
Well so he comes....
yeah hes old:p
aston martins are classy cars..built with real craftsmanship though not as fast as ferrari. I still think they look the business as this attachment proves.
TVR is the only car company in Britain that is not partly or fully owned by
a company from a different country. It's fully independent, and it makes
some pretty sweet cars!
TVR are just the blackpool best!!!. i love even the old Tuscan models :) they are the only cars that represent a true british sports car. im sorry but aston martins fail to impress me.. its just aristicratical ponce crap! bond james bond! :sleep: Yea ok ill take the TVR over an aston martin anyday. the build quality might not be the best. but as for styling power and generally what it is a pure breed car ill take the TVR.. plus they dont cost nearly as much.. and i think its more creditable to be in a TVR.
Ok news flash TVR are now owned buy a Russian millionaire :ohcrap:
and TVR were never the 'only car company in Britain that is not partly or fully owned by a company from a different country.' Just to list a few Marcos, Morgan, Noble, Caterham, Radical, Ariel and Palmer :thumbs:
Noble are very much like TVR. There both very quick on there Feet. both unfortunatly lack build quality badly!!! ive never been in a TVR but i have been in a Noble GTO n woooo So very very quick acceration and very impressive handling. Shame about the build quality still it really lets the car down.. n im still not to fond of mondeo lights
What about Morgan? Morgan is an English icon, but done a bit quiet now!?
I read Autocar and Evo and i have never read anything questioning the
'build quality' of a Noble, they do say the interior is a bit cheep for a
£50,000 car but thats it. Also they have said loads about TVR's
reliability but not the 'build quality'
Anyhow I would have any Aston Martin, TVR or Noble over the competition :thumbs:
Dont worry Lutz Morgan is still 100% british and are as strong as ever :wink2:
You guys are living in the past with the Noble. Get down on some DB7 Vanquish action. Now thats a car with true class, style, and performance; and I could care less if Bin Laden himself owned it. Its still a great car....
Whats so 'in the past' about the Noble and if your comparing it with the
DB7, WELL the DB7 uses the Jag XJS platform and the XJS dates from 1975.
However dont get me wrong the DB7 is a fantastic car wether in L6 or V12
form. I would have it over a 355 or 360 anyday.
And by the way there is no such thing as a 'DB7 Vanquish' :thumbs:
Sorry about that the V12 Vanquish and DB7 look so alike I just tend to mix the names up. I was referring to the V12 Vanquish.... I just consider the Vanquish to be far more futureistic than the GTO. They are both great cars I was just trying to steer this converstion back to Aston Martin...
fair enough :smoke:
hi..this bit in forum is to do with aston martin..not the russain owned tvr
or south africa assembled noble..both of which are really unreliable cars
especially in this winter time... Aston martins are much more
To keep the aston martin moment..here is a pic of a virage and a db7..come on people u know u would rather own these cars
Also you cant compair the DB7 with a M12 cos the DB7 is a GT and the M12 is A super/trackday car
