Aston Martin has a seemingly endless list of choices and options to create a truly unique and one-off personal version of their sports cars for everyone. Let's see what we can come up with. How many of us will come up with something truly unique, or something else?

Coupe or Volante, your choice!

I have played around with this one for a long while. And while a nice deep blue would be great, or go bronze which is a unique and fun choice. I ended up with this two-tone look that looks both elegant and sporty.

Ext color: Silver Birch Provenance, with black roof and strakes (A-C frames)
Ext extras: Carbon fiber louvers and vents and whatever else could be carbon
Wheels: Shadow Chrome 10 spoke, with carbon fiber centers and black painted calibers

Interior duotone: Light argento metallic (its leather, but sure) with black damson with that insanely over the top Geode Quilt

There are a lot more options, but like I said, Aston Martin has an insane amount of things you can change on their cars. Have fun!

Sweet! I'll have a play of that in a bit.

I'd like a nice model of the DBS Superleggera, Top Speed have done it in White and Metallic Red, but they are quite boring!

Given that AM virtually let their customers have any exterior and interior colour they want, I wish model makers would take a risk!

F**k you Photobucket.

I have been eyeing the Top Speed model for a while, but the colors are boring. It deserves better choices. Hopefully, someone makes a better looking model.

I configured a Yellow one last night. I thought it would look crap, but it looked nice. I put a carbon fibre roof on it and gave it Grey interior.  It looked really good :)

F**k you Photobucket.

Yeah, I would not think to go yellow, but when a car design is that good, any color would look great.

Royal Indigo
21" Lightweight Twinspoke Forged - Textured Black (would have chosen this in silver, but there wasnt an option)
would have liked less colored stuff in the interior. not exactly sure on this combo either.

There are so many nice colours. Thing is, would you want a bright yellow Aston? The brand doesn't really suit a loud shouty colour but something more sedate and understated.

I thought that too when Craig mentioned it. But, look at how many yellow AM are being made in 1/18 scale. And for the most part they don't look all that bad. It can work.

Lovely!! I did it with the other wheels on it, but I do think it looks good in Yellow!


Alex, cheers - I'll wait and see how the AUTOart ones are when they come out :)

F**k you Photobucket.
