    AM Vanquish kit on XK8 on Ebay and Website..

    http://www.carkitinc.com/ash.php <--website selling the super cheap (scam?) kit...

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ASTON...m230257438972&

    Ebay auction selling the kit...

    I need to see pics of a side profile view as i wonder if they fixed the XK's long rear-end...

    Interesting none the less...If it is legit, then this could be a cool kit...

    unfortunately this appears to be genuine.

    The ebay pics clearly show the Jags windows. Vanquish windows are samller and straighter edges., and the rear view clearly shows the jags body line.

    It it looks almost like a db7 Vanquish!

    Another brave attempt, but not worthy of that money. Still, if the ford mustang vanquish is out of anyone price range (LIKE, EVERYONE'S PRICE RANGE!)
    then this is the next best thing, until of course......

    youll notice Im the last poster on Extreme's Vanquish thread as I am anxiously waiting for more updates, as many of us are..

    It was mentioned in that same Extreme thread about the potential of using the XK8 since its pretty close....

    I guess the Supra is confirmed, so I hope they dont make the front and rear overhangs too large...since the Supra has a short wheelbase...

    haha!

    you will also notice on the same thread that i have regularly added my interest in extreme's project, and i totally agree with what you say about the over hangs...

    but supra is a good choice i guess, all things considered.

    i really dont like what appears to be the 1 piece bonnet and wings on that xk donor car!

    PANELS PEOPLE!!! it looks better!

    I would have to agree, this looks genuine, the XK's lines are clearly visible on the C pillar. He also mentions that you can pick up the kit at the shop, so you can have a look.

    i agree with what you say about the one-piece, i guess easier and cheaper to make that way...

    You can also tell its on an XK based on the rear window in its shape, very XK....

    As long as the rear overhang isnt as long as a real XK i would consider this kit...

    I need more pictures though, I emailed and inquired...we'll see what happens...

    I also inquired about the "VIP" kit, Viper kit...we'll see what i get, if i get anything....

    Only one way to find out, they say they are located in Alabama and offer local pickup, so if anyone thats from Alabama could check it out....

    i was going to email you about that BlackOps but I figured you were going to buy it from them...hmmm....

    For all we know this could have been an XK one-off that they are trying to sell on ebay and scam everyone...

    i actually kinda jam-ed with extreme murci kit...as those are from the real thing which
    fits the genuine parts like window glass, grilles and other misc.....
    the best part is MR2 can be the donor which can be found in my country easily...
    but the kit tag is...err...hehe... :

    as for this one --> http://www.carkitinc.com/mercy.php , it seems more like a G24 kit....
    anyone care to have a look?
