Re: Extreme Vanquish

Well it's about flippin time!
Looks very much the same as the kit car inc one, and the splashed ash mart one, and the splashed fibreglass.de one...
But i guess if it's done PROPERLY with decent mouldings then it should be great. The pics on their website looking very nice!  shame the old xk is a bit naff on the windshield and rear glass though.
And 23k euros! would still go for a 430 and keep the change.
Or perhaps, buy the kit and put it on a damaged db7...
why!??!?!
coz the top half of the car is way better than the xk (correct shape windscreen and rear screen, lower and flatter, and of course db7 parts sell for more than xk parts).
Would it fit?
The xk is almost exactly the same dimensions as the db7.  Check it for yourselves.
PLUS, if you were daft enough...
The db7 vantage comes in v12 (1999 onwards) meaning an aston V12 and lower tax bracket (PLG for 1999-2001) difference of over £200 a year! for an aston V12!!!

But cost as always, db7 vantage will be at least £18,995...

Maybe keep the xk then  Undecided

But yeah! finally!
What's happnin with DBS rep then?! MI6 where you at boys???

Re: Extreme Vanquish

The db7 uses the same platform as the xk, so this is why the dimensions are very close.

Re: Extreme Vanquish

And the closest donor to a vanquish, I reckon, is the DB7...  there is 4" wheelbase difference between them, but just imagine that kit on a db7... and then looking under the bonnet coz u suspect it might be a fake...
"oh, i see...it's an aston martin engine..."

Re: Extreme Vanquish

Is the enzo dbs on the supra anything to do with MI6 cars who have already done a version?

That vanquish on the jag is definitely FGP.  The wheels are identical as the ones shown in the older FGP website build pics, as are the other kits they have for sale.
Still looks good though.  Just wonder about the quality eh!? Get one over here in the UK so we can all inspect the hell out of it!

DBS on the supra? anyone has news or pics?

Re: Extreme Vanquish

I very much doubt it will ever be done. Another UK kit manufacture did one and had a visit and letters from Aston Martin. Since the visit they no longer advertise there kit although I have seen one or two completed cars for sale. However, they may have already been sold pre letter.

Re: Extreme Vanquish

Sorry to ressurect an ancient thread...

But I was thinking about how the former Extreme Cars team did a kit for the focus to look like an RS.
Well, the DB9 and DBS share the same chassis and tub.
I was actually very close to doing a conversion myself but ended up selling all my DBS parts and bought a vantage instead...

Anyway, with DB9 prices tumbling into mud £20k ranges (I know it's still expensive...) and with the DBS now a retired model (and still selling in the £70k upwards bracket), "someone" should do the conversion moulds!
NOT paragon design as they only got it half right.
Paul Belk also got it just over half right but was still obvious to the Aston enthusiast.
Edo Competition got it 99% right a few years back (just the rear quarters were not flared like they should be on the DBS).

Just sayin...
