Internet sensation, Tim Burton - better known as @Shmee150 across his social media platforms - is a YouTube vlogger and car collector based in London. With an impressive 1,040,000 subscribers on YouTube and 1 million followers on Instagram it is easy to see that Tim has worked very hard to produce quality content consistently over the years.
His car collection currently consists of a McLaren 675LTS, Ferrari FF, Focus RS, Mercedes AMG GT R, Porsche GT3, New Ford GT and the godly Aston Martin Vantage GT8. He has recently sold his Vanquish Volante, and has also previously owned a V8 Vantage Roadster. It is clear the love for Aston Martin cars runs through the family as his father is also enjoying owning a V12 Vantage!
He has made a name for himself through reviewing a huge range of vehicles (mostly of the supercar variation) and gives his opinion on the car - as an owner of many exotic cars he knows what he is talking about.
During his recent trip to Scotland he popped in and out of our showroom in Edinburgh a fair few times.
Firstly, he took our China Grey Vanquish S out for a test drive - and its fair to say he absolutely loved the car. The car is now on his wish list for the future!

We then invited him to a private track evening at Knockhill Racing Circuit, where he enjoyed using his GT8 on track with the good company of fellow Aston Martin owners and their cars.

Ignition Festival Of Motoring was held at the Glasgow SECC, where Tim also made an appearance. He took the GT8 out on the track road around the event and visited our stand where we displayed a fine selection of our cars.

After attending many events in Scotland over a short period of time, Tim then moved on to the next part of his journey and kindly offered us the chance to store his GT8 in our showroom - We certainly didn’t have to think twice about taking him up on this offer!
Over the few weeks of having his car displayed in the dealership we have had many admirers pop in to check it out.
It has been great working with Shmee whilst in Scotland and we look forward to seeing him again next time!
