Model: 2018 Aston Martin Vantage
Line: RMZ City Junior Collection, casting 3036
Why it’s in my collection: RMZ City is a newer brand addition to my collection, but they have some great castings that the other brands don’t…which is actually what lead me to this badass Lime Green Aston Martin Vantage.
I featured their Maserati Gran Turismo in a Lamely Daily article a few months back, and was searching for color variations of that car on eBay when I stumbled across the Aston. I love the look of the car in real life, so the want was real….the only problem was that the seller was based far away from the States: in Asia. Not usually a big deal, but I bought this car right at the onset of the global pandemic and feared it wouldn’t arrive do to its small size. I thought all hope was lost until the car showed up randomly, over 100 days after purchase – but hey, it arrived!
Like other RMZ City cars from their Junior line, the car is quite basic. The black windows hide the fact it doesn’t have an interior, the tampos are minimal, and the wheels are basic 5-spokers…but the car still looks good. RMZ put a good amount of casting detail into the body and front/rear grille areas, making this car a wheel swap (and maybe some more paint detailing) away from looking really good. I really like the side mirrors too.
I couldn’t help but think this would make an awesome anti-hero James Bond car for a future 007 film, and snagged some of Bond’s older Astons to join the shoot. You can definitely see that the Aston Martin design team took heavily from the design of the DB10 (from the 007 film Spectre) to design the latest Vantage – and I ain’t mad about that! 🏁
