GT8 AUTOBAHN DASH! 500 Miles to Germany and Full Throttle

Πριν 23 ημέρες

It's a first with my Aston Martin Vantage GT8; a road trip to the German Autobahn! Coming up towards being 4 years old, the GT8 is a permanent Shmeemobile in my garage but notably it's never had a proper run, so let's change that! First stop, to let it roar to the redline...
My Vantage GT8 has traveled on 3 prior occasions; firstly to Scotland when it was quite new, then transported to and from Italy for Fuel Faction DUE, and finally being driven by Joe Achilles and BenzeneBen on Ring Wing Ting. Since then, it's been a notable absentee from my trips and adventures after the original plans for the earlier part of this year all had to be cancelled. This then is of course the perfect opportunity to get it back on the road and add many more to the 7,000 miles it has covered to date!
At the turn of the year, it will reach 4 years old and it's incredible how fast that time has gone by, yet this car is every bit as special as it always was. There is no question that one of the best features is the incredible titanium exhaust (still nobody seems to know how that was homologated) but being able to stretch out the revs and get towards the red line is a total dream. Where better then than to finally take it towards Germany myself for a full run, eventually a stop at the Nurburgring for my first laps driving it around, and onwards to plenty of incredible shoots in the coming days.
I make no secret that it's a car I will keep forever, especially considering the experience to join it as the car made the way down Aston Martin's production line in Gaydon. Each memory that follows though just builds on this and makes it even more special!
Thanks for watching, Tim

The last big adventure with my GT8 was already 2.5 years ago. It's time to fix this, and what better than to listen to that thunderous roar under full throttle on the German Autobahn! Does anything sound better than this?!

Indeed! Always saw this car in your garage, but could not remember the last time it was driven... was briefly thinking if even Shmee has a garage Queen.... Btw. Does this one have an AMG Engine?

Tbh, I am actually amazed as to how often you do these drives between UK and Germany (along with the LHDRHD thing). I am surprised that you don't get tired of driving so long and so far.

I always think how does Waze estimate your time when it involves unrestricted sections. Did 400 miles the other week from Duxford to Glasgow with Waze fantastic app introduced by Tim. When I pulled back into the drive I was knackered I don’t fancy adding another 100 miles to that.

Shmee150 has the ole Aston Martin on the Autobahn blowing is nose. I’m sure if that Aston Martin could speak it would be thanking you for blowing it out on the Autobahn. Every car capable of 150 MPH or higher should be driven on an autobahn style interstate.

I normally feel a bit "Meh" when 'Tubers post videos talking about how their car sounds, mainly because my speakers (and i have THX branded ones that are not at all shabby) do not properly convey the true sound of said car. Even headphones cant always give you a true appreciation of how a car sounds. This Aston must be absolutely EPIC in person if what i heard on this video is close to the truth. I clicked on 11:32 repeatedly.

They actually transported an element / pillar of a wind turbine... They get transported very often in Germany, especially at night because of the traffic, and they are very annoying 😉 I know what you mean... Once drove 1 1/2h behind one, with around 30km/h...definitely NOT fun at all😅 But they have to be transported right?
