As we said goodbye to our infamous CLS55 AMG, and helped it find a new home…we say hello to our latest and greatest project yet: the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, code named “Heaven” due to its very unique color and options package. We couldn’t stand looking at this in our garage unmolested and decided that it simply was not fair to have an Aston Martin unless its fully modified.
For this particular project, we call upon Sponsors like D2Forged, friends like Sr Auto Group and fans to help us make this another masterpiece. So what makes our car so special?
Our Aston Martin V8 Vantage is well loaded with some amazing options:
- Polished Stainless grill
- 6 Speed Manual transmission
- Self Leveling HID lights
- Deviated Obsidian Black Stitching
- Piano Wood
- N400 NAV & Premium Sound
- Premium 19″ wheels
- Silver Painted Caliper
- Special Order Paint
All these options made what we thought was the best combo for our Aston Martin V8 Vantage, but was only the beginning of what we have in store for this amazing one of a kind beauty!
We have started the project by asking our friends at D2 Forged to help us out with the perfect wheel/tire combo. I personally don’t trust anyone’s taste but my own when it comes to wheels as they are the most crucial part of a car’s transformation, but I felt that after seeing the D2Forged Murcielago and D2Forged 911 Turbo that I was in great hands. I called Derrick and his brother and we got the ball rolling on getting me a set of D2 Forged VS1 Wheels in Silver finish/Chrome lips wrapped in Pirelli P-Zeros. Here is the part that made us even more confident that D2 Forged was indeed the perfect choice. Custom wheels take 8 weeks to make on average, but Derrick was able to deliver us our set in less than 10 days. He created a set of wheels for us in less than 10 days knowing the time line we were under in order to shoot a few segments of the upcoming Secret Entourage feature film. This particular level of service made me realize the level of support we have from our friends at D2 Forged and made me feel even more confident that the wheels would look nothing less than stunning on our newest Aston Martin. D2Forged also supplied us with H&R suspension to ensure our Aston looks perfect on their wheels.
Our next mods will be geared towards the aesthetics of the car by simply adding a dry carbon front lip and a carbon fiber rear diffuser. Two simple mods from the Vantage collection catalog that will set the car apart and give it a very aggressive look.
Next comes the wonderful 4.3L engine which we plan to mod with basic upgrades from RSC Racing such as a Supercharger kit, ECU upgrade, Intake and last but not least the perfect sound which will come from a QuickSilver exhaust similar to the one used on our Lamborghini Gallardo. We are still uncertain of the level of complication we want to undertake with performance as we use this car on a daily basis and therefore might want to keep it docile.
So far after a 1000 miles of ownership we have truly enjoyed our time with this car and will love to see the results of our modifications come to life next week, so stay tuned for monthly updates on our crazy colored new Aston Martin V8 Vantage as she undergoes some crazy modifications and make sure to check out our friends at D2Forged.com if you cant wait to see the project coming to life.
