It might be the graphics. I know KB wanted to keep it looking 'original' and the attached GT1 Hexis AMR Aston was obviously the one that caught his eye - it also looks low & mean compared to some of the other paint jobs

I dont know how to upload photos sorry - follow the link to http://www.supercars.net/Pics?viewPi...D=1&pID=990979

Imagine it without that very deep sunstrip, and I think it looks right.

What surprises me about the pics is that 321 ignition mag must be still going. I gave up trying to locate it in newsagents after issue 1.

Dameon Jameson turned up in the Jaguar with a stunning new paint job and later on will have all Carbonfibre panels. It has some already. The car was unfortunately wrecked at the meeting.

Love the car but it aint the same without the original screaming Aston Martin V12. That was one of the best sounding engines in GT racing.

As I said before , it never had a Aston Martin V12 or was designed to have one. The body was NOT taken from a production Aston Martin.

I didnt mean it in that way. Im a big sportscar racing fan and used to hearing a DBR9 with a screaming Aston V12 up the front and now this replica (what else could you call it) rumbles along with a big V8. Its a bit weird seeing something and hearing something different then what Im used to. Not fussed what engine it runs, its just great to see the car out racing.

As I said before, love the car, a beautiful machine. The choice of a DBR9 lookalike is a bit left field but a great one at that.

Sensational looking and sounding car. Can't wait to see it up against the Alfa and Audi at the Island...

It has a 780hp Carburreted ex-Nationwide NASCAR engine. Decidedly less exotic, but netherless effective alternative.
