    GT/GC Front bumper winglets

    Does anyone on here know if the little winglets fitted to the bottom of each side of the front bumper on the S models are available as a spare or only as part of the whole bumper moulding? I’ve looked on Scuderia Parts but can’t see them. Would ideally like carbon finish to match the rear...

    I think I recognise the background to this Gransport LE making the cut on PistonHeads best modern classics for £30k or less. Chequebooks at the ready..... https://www.pistonheads.com/news/ph-features/--163-30k-future-classics---six-of-the-best/43167

    GT40

    I think we are coming to the end of the era of N/A ICE sportscars with a manual box and was looking for something raw to add to my road collection as the DB4 is not road legal. I tried an Atom and BAC Mono, then by chance came across this GT40 replica. With my Le Mans connections it’s seemed to...

    Simple & Cheap Underbonnet Upgrade for GT/GC

    I was fed up with the rusting black steel bolts holding the engine covers in place, so have replaced these with M5 stainless Socket head bolts and washers. Look much better IMO, they don’t rust or seize and cost was less than £10 off eBay for the 25 you need.

    YouTube 2007 GT Project

    This bloke is quite well known on YouTube as he rebuilt a crash damaged Bentley Conti GT, drove it to Monaco and back and has now auctioned it off BOTB style with £15 tickets. Now moved onto this GT that sounds Cat C or D from his description that he picked up for £16.5k in a pretty and very...

    What’s this Bolt that fell off?

    Found this on garage floor this morning under L/H front wheel. Had an x pipe fitted recently and think it may be one of the bolts that holds the big metal under frame that adds stiffness to the Grancab?

    Spoiled my GC?

    Slavishly devoting myself to originality for some of my cars so I can spend thousands of wasted hours cleaning for Concours events (I won my class at the AMOC 2020 "Virtual" Concours yesterday) , I wanted to have a bit more scope for personalisation with my (relatively) low value GC, but don't...

    Track Day at Snetterton

    With online registration and briefing this event surprisingly went ahead today. Took the GC just for a change from the Astons but knowing it was a bit heavy and too long a wheelbase. Passed the 105db noise test no problems even with valves open and made a great noise, but was humbled by some...

    Replacement Intake and Sound Chamber Set

    Seeing as I could tick most of the boxes on the thread about old men looking like c..k's in convertibles, I thought I would add to the cringe factor and have purchased a red finish intake housing with carbon sound chambers from Urutu in the US to replace the OE black plastic. Cost about £265...

    Every Cloud

    Now we are allowed to drive again I’ve been out filling up a few of the fleet at less than £1 per litre. A V12 Aston, 4.7 GC and even the 7 litre Bentley are economy models at this price. Happy days! When was 95 RON last less than £1 a litre? Last century?

    Fitting Stindig's Dead Pedal

    This arrived today and is just like the OE Part other than the price..........thanks Stindig! It comes with 3 x M6x15 countersunk bolts and many have said that the footrest should have pre-drilled holes to accept these. I have a 2010 GC and couldn't find any so peeled the carpet back and found...

    105 Dba

    I have a trackday coming up and thought I might take the Grancab for a laugh! Bit big and heavy but I’ve hardly driven it since I got it in Jan 19 so would be fun to give it a blast as opposed to same old rides with the Astons it has the standard valved 4.7 engine exhaust, so will it pass the...
