2013 Aston Martin V8 Vantage
The Vantage is a sports car produced by the British company Aston Martin. The newest version comes in a V8 or V12 version. The 4735 CC V8 engine in the front produces 420 BHP at 7300 RPM. To increase practicability, the Vantage has a hatchback-style rear, and a large trunk. My Lego version doesn't come with a large trunk (most of it was consumed by the suspension system) but does have: -working steering, not connected to steering wheel -working independent suspension, rear wheels only -opening doors, trunk (boot), hood (bonnet) and most importantly, an opening glove box! It also features detailed exterior, interior, and engine. To increase accuracy, the wheelbase is 16.5 studs long, meaning that there is 12.5 studs space between the wheels.

Shame on me for this, but a little free advertising.

Also i would appreciate it if you support my friend's Cuusoo project

I hope you like it, and have a nice day! :-)


Updates

Okay so taking some of your suggestions i used cheese slopes over the rear wheel arches:

2013 Aston Martin V8 Vantage update 2

2013 Aston Martin V8 Vantage update 1


After that i also thought to see if i could use traditional shock absorbers instead of rubber bands. this added a little more space (and a probably better suspension system) to the car:

Quoting XY EZ Superb car! The shape is great, in fact everything is!! I would just put some bigger wheels; they look a bit to small... 8-D 5/5
Thanks a lot! The main problem with 12 wides is that there are two wheel sizes, and the smaller ones (these) almost always look to small while the bigger ones tend to look to big. :/ But I like the fact that 12 wides are big enough to allow a good bit of detail, but small enough for it to be a challenge to get them in.

Quoting Technic Man Wow! Nice car dude. I thought you were in my favorite builders. And now that I'm looking at your creations I'm thinking:"This guy is so good as Firas Abu-Jaber". This deserves a 5/5. Anyway, here is my answer to you:"I'm working on 3 cars and waiting for the 41999 (because of pieces), wich I won with my Hummer H3. Anyway, I'm working on my Gumpert, on my Land Rover and on another car wich is surprise. I'm also working on gearboxes, and I've created a new one I've never seen before. I've built the Jack MK2 and also a wheel lock (those ones that appear on your car when you don't park it where you should ;)) Probably I'll post something in August."
WOW! as good as Firas? that's a HUGE compliment! Thanks a whole lot! :D Sounds like some cool projects, can't wait to see them finished! :D

Quoting Starscream Soundwave That sounds cool. What I meant by the side is that (in my opinion) it would look better using some cheese slopes on the top, in the same way that Harry Gravett did on his Ferrari California.
Oh. Well i can't do that for the front, but i'll see if i can on the back!

Quoting Starscream Soundwave If I'm being really critical, I would say that the 'shoulders' are a little too flat above the mudguard, and the A pillars look odd because of the gap. However other than that I can't see anything else to criticize, this is a fantastic creation. The amount of functions you've managed to pack in is crazy, not to mention the details piled in on top. I can tell you put a lot of effort into this one. The engine is relatively accurate too, which is nice to see, as is the interior. I think my favourite part is the rear, the curves are excellently replicated, and the overall look is instantly recognisable. I'd say you pulled it off ;) Easily your best build yet, I really like it.
Thanks! Glad you like it! there was two reasons i built it, one was becuase i was wondering how a 12 wide i built would compare to Sven's amazing ones, and to impress you, since i saw somewhere you said Astons are really hard (besides i like a good challenge) are you talking about the rear mudguards? The A pillars would be better in real bricks becuase i plan on using pneumatic tubing with minifigs hands, (like on my AAR Cuda) which would fix the gap :)
