This week, we’ll go behind the scenes of the cover of the current issue. After finishing shooting the Lost Heroes we showed up on this show last week, we headed out to meet the Aston Martin V12 Vantage for another day of shooting. After the lone twilight drive through the Welsh backbone of the NISMO GTR, we reached the overnight stay in Elan Valley where the red Aston Martin was already parked, taking what appeared to be about 60 per cent of the parade route in the small village where we were based. It was going to be another tough day.
The next morning was an early start, as snapper Matt Hoyle and the rest of the team wanted to capture the dim light over and around the swamps we were filming in. The siren sounds at 5.30 in the morning, we go out the door for six people, we head into the village and get out of it in a gentle caravan, warming up the liquids as meekly as possible so as not to awaken the neighboring villages.

Of course it’s impossible not to draw attention in a convoy of the bright white and cherry red Aston Martin GT-R, both of which pop from the carbon fiber wings and chin spoiler that look more at home on the smooth surfaces of Silverstone that Aston called home for the first part of Filmed the day before.
On site, we weren’t just taking still photos, but we also shot some stills that you might have seen in our V12 Vantage video. The narrow roads and open landscape gave us some stunning views, and apart from capturing the attention of holiday seekers in their campers, we pretty much had the roads to ourselves, resulting in the amazing photos you see here.
However, not everything was so simple, while the site yielded impressive results, Vantage itself was a mixed bag. As an Aston Martin V12-powered swan song, we were expecting fireworks, but as Steve Sutcliffe reveals in the current release and on our website Youtube video, there is something wrong. To find out why and how Aston Martin can’t quite make it, be sure to get a current issue.

Fans may have cried when Ferrari decided to run the Ferrari 488 turbo, but it’s not as if Ferrari doesn’t have a history with turbocharged V8s. Here, 488 stars participated alongside the stunning F40, while elsewhere in this show we’re taking the Porsche Cayman GTS to Japan for a stunning mountain blast.
