Elegant English GTs
1:43 | $98
Aston Martin is having a pretty good year with its stylish main line grand tourer the DB9 being joined by the ultra-performance Vanquish. Kyosho, in signing on to produce both in 1:43 in a host of colors, is poised to enjoy the halo effect of these gorgeous coupes. The DB9 is not exactly a wallflower with its seductive lines and its 510hp V12, but the extroverted Vanquish, with its carbon-fiber roof, aggressive ground effects and integrated rear deck spoiler, easily overshadows its more stately sibling. They are clearly related (like Cain and Abel!) and Kyosho captures well the essence of both cars. Even the interior differences are accounted for, with the DB9’s more sumptuous accommodations nicely visible with the white car’s red upholstery. Both are beautiful, and they look great in side-by-side display!
