Discover Shmee150s Aston Martin Vanquish Volante

28th Mar 2017

Supercar YouTuber Shmee150 has an incredibly popular YouTube channel dedicated to his automotive adventures, and currently has over 950,000 subscribers. As an avid car enthusiast, Shmee150 (aka Tim Burton) has an array of high performance supercars, a hot hatchback - and a humble classic Mini!

Shmee's collection currently consists of a McLaren 675LT Spider, Ferrari FF, Aston Martin Vantage GT8, Ford Focus RS MK3 and not forgetting a classic Mini Cooper. He also has another three cars on order - the new Ford GT, Mercedes AMG GT R and a Porsche 911 GT3 991.2, it's fair to say he likes his cars! As if that wasn't enough, all his cars feature personalised number plates, usually being similar to his 'Shmee' YouTube name which include 'SH10 MEE', 'SH12 MEE', 'SH13 MEE', 'SH15 MEE', 'SH16 MEE' and not forgetting the original 87 TB - which sits on his classic Mini.

Recently, Tim decided that whilst waiting for the cars he has on order to arrive, he needed a grand tourer, in order to take down to the South of France and accompany him on his popular automotive adventures, which he documents on his YouTube channel. Tim is in regular contact with our Aston Martin Stratstone Amersham dealer, and in a recent video took a tour of the new Aston Martin Vanquish S whilst visiting.

Stratstone also provided Tim's Aston Martin Vantage GT8 which he collected from the factory in Gaydon. But now, he has added another Aston Martin to his collection - a 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish Volante Carbon Edition, which he has had wrapped in his famous 'Shmee Blue'. The Volante is the perfect grand tourer and features a colossal 6.0-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine which means this convertible Aston is capable of 197mph and a 0-60mph time of only 3.8 seconds.

The car itself started out black, being a Carbon Edition (you can choose from black or white) and features carbon fibre touches such as door mirrors, splitter, side detailing and even carbon Aston Martin badges. The interior has also had the black treatment with carbon detailing and it's worth noting that the body is also made entirely out of carbon fibre.

Tim has opted to put his own spin on the black wheels, with diamond cut detailing to compliment the carbon-fibre and 'Shmee Blue' body colour. His plate 'SH12 MEE' sits on the 'V12' Volante, for obvious reasons, whilst his 'SH16 MEE' plate now takes pride of place on his Vantage GT8.

Congratulations Tim, and thanks for choosing Stratstone, again!
