These cars are very much love or hate for people but thought I would post up here for anyone that enjoys these kind of things.

Another concourse preperation detail. I was called a few months ago to about detailing this Aston Martin DB7 Zagato for a competition.



It was covered in a lot of swirl marks and general wash damage on the exterior. It went through the usual deep cleaning wash process to remove all contamination.







The car was then dried and brought inside for full inspection, readings and taping up.



A section was tested and showed how hard the paint is. I found a good pad and polish combination. A 2 stage process was chosen with the time limits and budget to get it looking great. It is impossible to photo the pre issues but here are some during the process.



The engine bay and interior also received a full detail.






Even all the small areas were polished and detailed.





And some finished pictures.

Very nice. Can't say I've ever seen one of them before. I like the old v8 vantage mustang looking ones.

Saw one on the road in Bristol around 3-4 years ago but in red - it looked absolutely stunning!

Not keen on AM's but enjoy reading up on the work done. So that's where Nissan got the 'Z' idea from on the front quarter panel.

Not a fan really... grill and wheels are very Halfords, and the dash is disgusting.

The one on Top Gear the other day was a real stunner.

I very much doubt it, the 350z is probably older.
