The range on a full tank of gasoline is 210 miles, and the fuel tank capacity is six gallons, with the low fuel warning light coming on when there is just one mile’s worth of fuel left.

The watch measures in at 39.5mm, so the design is slim, sleek, and classy. The style is reminiscent of the 1950’s and 1960’s Seamasters, yet with a modern twist, and today’s technology. The Omega logo appears prominently in red on the dial, printed in enamel. The hour hand reaches microscopically right to the end very of the indices. The minute hand overlaps the hour hand enough to create a minute gap between the edge of the dial, and the point of the minute hand. The fast-moving second hand is slightly longer than the minute hand and reaches the end of the dial. The watch is aesthetically pleasing, and beautifully designed in every respect.

Its main completion comes from the Jaguar F-Type SVR, the Mercedes AMG GT, and the Porsche 911 Turbo, yet the Vantage takes them on square and fair, coming trumps up in several departments. Nice little touches, like the optional sports exhaust, quad outlets, or the steel body shell.
With a dry weight of 3,373 pounds and estimates of 3,594 pounds with fluids, it compares favourably with the all-wheel-drive Porsche 911 Turbo. The car has an eight-speed automatic transmission, in a transaxle arrangement, which is 70% new.

Placing your palms on the steering wheel and gently pressing the accelerator as the Vantage moves into motion. As the speed picks up, one notices a sense of speed, agility, comfort and extreme pleasure the experience brings about. The Vantage picks up speed, the well-proportioned steering wheel controlling the curves and bends, and the excellent road holding add a feeling of security mingled with the excitement of driving the Vantage at high speed. Even on a slippery surface, the brakes slow the Vantage smoothly and with minimal ABS intervention. The vantage is capable of reaching a speed of 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, yes it’s that fast!
Launched for sale in April 2018, and with a price tag of just over $149,000, expect the car to sell strongly, as its predecessors did before it.

The Ferrari Dino 246 GTS was produced in limited numbers in 1974, in fact, only 313 models were produced. The GTS Spyder is even more rare, as only about 1,200 were produced since the Dino started production, eventually ceasing in the 1970s. The car is a fine example of Italian design and performance. It has consistently placed among the best sports cars of the 1970’s, and the top ten Ferraris of all time. The Ferrari Dino is renowned for its beautiful curves and groundbreaking design.
The motor is a 2418 cc engine, with a 65-degree, dual-overhead-camshaft design. This features a 9.0:1 compression ratio, and three Weber 2 barrel downdraft carburetors. The Dino’s 2.4 L V6 has since been utilised in other sports cars after initially being used in the Dino. The engine weighs 2,426 lb (1,100 kg), and the body is made of steel. This car was ordered in the extremely rare, Viola Metallizzato, and delivered near the end of production. Every nut, bolt and part of this car has been meticulously restored to its original glory, so the car will run like it is just off the production line! The car is rear wheel drive, the exterior colour is metallic purple, while the interior is jet black. The gearbox has a five-speed manual transmission which is a pleasure to use, as the gear changes are smooth, and give full control to the driver.
Few sports cars can lay claim to such a noble heritage. The Ferrari Dino is a beautiful example of a classic 1970s sports car, created by one of the most renowned car brands in the world. The asking price is $449,865, and there has been nothing like it in production since the mid seventies. Owning this classic car would be a dream come true, and a slice of Ferrari history. The value can only increase!
