TSM 2018

Post by Jager » Sun Jun 10, 2018 7:54 pm

TSM have released the new Aston Martin Vantage :

I wonder if this means they will have an 'exclusive' arrangement on the racecar versions similar to their deal with the Ford GT's.

I think could double as a night-lite? Maybe a very fragile road reflector?

Looks to be lovely work as every TSM car seems to be!

Can anyone else confirm if this company releases far fewer cars than say 8 years ago? Maybe I'm not paying attention?

Looks amazing to me, I would get one if I were to collect cars without numbers.

Ah! Ian’s “released” comment threw me.

More like "Announced", and they may have a habit of doing it as a dealer model before it goes to retailers a few months later?

Like the McLaren 720S the 1:1 Vantage is very colour sensitive. The Blue that they've been testing in the car mags is 'dullsville' and doesn't do anything for the shape. The metallic red which was at the London Motor Show works well. The Lemon/lime is fabulous in photos on paper but I'll wait until I see the 1:43 in the hand before deciding if it'll break my 'no resin' rule.

This acid lemon hue simply won't do; it's not Aston Martin and it's not British! To be honest I can't make up my mind which colour works best on this car; at the moment I'm leaning towards white.

I've actually already had this Aston in a 120 limited editon form from the Nuremberg toy fair but sold it on because I didn't like the metallic brown finish.ImageSorry about the pic but I left the car in the box so I could sell it on as new/unopened.

That looks like red metallic to me. Excellent colour. The ambulance yellow will stand out in the display but not in a positive way.

Better get used to it because the acid lemon is Aston's new signature colour for their race cars. I suspect you'll be seeing more of it on their concept cars as a result.

I agree with Tom in that is the metallic red on the Toy Fair Special. The 'TSM' advertising sunshade stripe doesn't help in the equation so you were probably wise to sell it on Will.

I sat on this model for a couple of weeks while I decided whether to keep it. It does look red in the pics but appeared more brownish in the hand and so I decided to let it go. I did make a decent profit on it too though some way short of £150.00

I suspect the acid lemon is a ploy. Imagine seeing that come up behind you in your rear view mirror. It simply says "I coming past"
