The countdown has begun, the talent has been booked, the music has been selected and the outfits have been chosen. All that’s left to do is wait, impatiently wait, like a kid about to go to Disneyworld, but has yet to arrive at the airport. It is officially 7 days until Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out in London and pretty much every fashionista is scouring the blogosphere for the latest news on the shopping event of the year. A fashion extravaganza of epic proportions featuring a staggering 281 participating retailers from the capital’s most iconic brands to the high street’s most beloved shops. Now in its third year, London’s FNO is nothing short of extraordinary. Expect to rub elbows with models, designers, A-listers and fashion’s elite as you navigate your way through the streets of London, bouncing from boutique to high street retailer, sipping Champagne and Pimm’s cocktails and partaking in festivities that up until now, have only appeared in your dreams. It may sound like madness, but the clever arrangement of events, deals and activities spread across the city will throw anyone into a state of fashion euphoria. Here’s a look at some of the night’s highlights:

Roller Retailer: Dust off your skates, as Rupert Sanderson’s shop will transform into a glittery roller disco, complete with groovy tunes and glammed up 70’s style.

An Appetite for Fashion: Hunting down the perfect platform wedges can stir up quite an appetite. So as you mingle with the fashion folk, don’t forget to try the Hakkasan canapés at DVF or the mini toad-in-the-holes at Mulberry. Indulge your sweet tooth at Jaeger with Yoo Moo frozen yoghurt sundaes or hop over to Thomas Pink to sample the delectable Hummingbird Bakery cupcakes.

A Paparazzi’s Heaven: Fancy a chance to pose for the paparazzi? Then, FNO is your time to shine. Everyone from Armani Exchange to Tommy Hilfiger are featuring photo shoots, red carpets and styling sessions to ignite the model in everyone. H&M and Daks will have pop-up photo booths, Jimmy Choo is rolling out the red carpet and Dior is turning a black cab into the ultimate dressing room.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 Race Car

•September 2, 2011 • Leave a Comment


Aston Martin said it will begin testing its new V12 Vantage GT3 racecar this fall, with the first deliveries to begin in early 2012. Here’s the first look at the Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 Race Car:

Official News Below:

Aston Martin confirms today the specification of the 2012 Vantage GT3 race car. As the natural successor to the enormously successful DBRS9, the new Vantage GT3 will offer customers the latest in race-car technology to ensure the Vantage GT3 has the credentials to compete with the most recent new product offerings from other manufacturers.

The Vantage GT3 features a modified version of Aston Martin’s production 6.0 litre V12 engine found in the marque’s highly acclaimed sports cars. The dry-sumped engine is expected to produce 600 bhp with 700 Nm of torque and its position has been optimised further to improve weight balance. A carbon fibre propshaft mates the engine to a Xtrac 6 speed sequential transmission with semi-automatic paddle shift gear change.

The Vantage GT3 benefits from Aston Martin’s V/H architecture philosophy, the modular chassis uses aerospace bonding techniques to create a light and immensely stiff aluminium and composite structure which not only aids handling on Aston Martin’s road cars but is also an ideal base for competitive race cars.

Most dramatic of all, are the new aerodynamics, contributing to a muscular and purposeful stance while maintaining the overall beauty of the V12 Vantage. The shorter wheel base and lower engine position over its predecessor will contribute to enhanced handling and performance. The new car will also provide enhanced driveability with the latest race-developed ABS and Traction Control systems which are fitted to the V12 Vantage GT3 as standard.

The Vantage GT3 will be eligible for numerous race series around the world including the FIA GT3 Championship, ADAC Masters, Nürburgring VLN, Blancpain Endurance Series, British GT, Belcar and Open GT among others.

Aston Martin remains the only manufacturer to offer a race car for every GT class firmly cementing it as a global forerunner in race car production. The new Vantage GT3 is being developed to replicate and indeed surpass the superb track record of the DBRS9.

Aston Martin has sold 24 DBRS9s and customer teams have accumulated many race podiums and victories over the past six years including 2009 Winner Teams Championship, and Winner Manufacturers Championship for Hexis Racing and as recently as a 2011 GT Open race win at Spa for Villois Racing.

Testing of the new car will commence in October, where the Vantage GT3 will undergo a comprehensive sign-off durability test including a 10,000 km test programme. Deliveries of the first cars will commence in early 2012. Prices start from £298,000.
