Slower, heavier and doesn't handle as well as its rivals.

But it is waaaay cooler than any of them.

Abso-bloody-lutely gorgeous - there's one that shares the drive to/from work with me and the sound as it reverbs off the hillside is amazing - even make my Spider look ordinary.

Re: Aston Martin V8 Vantage

Cool, but not sub zero.

They are bit common around these parts, and I would rather have a Ferrari, or even a Maserati Gran Tourismo.

Re: Aston Martin V8 Vantage

Frost-bitingly, heart-achingly sub zero in a way that Ferraris, Bentleys, Zondas and Lambos can only dream of.

It is an Aston. A proper genteleman's sports carriage for those who are too cool to worry about stats and do not need a bright red hue to be noticed.

I see more Astons than I do Alfa GTV's, Fiat Coupe's, and ferrari's put together.

OK maybe not many are the Vantage version I will admit.


There are far more Porsches than Astons around here though.

That may explain it. Most of the ones I see are around Oxford.

I do like them though, even if I see a few around.

Re: Aston Martin V8 Vantage

Like Cooper I intend to own one, regardless of what it costs, there may come a day when the GTA has to go in favour of the Aston...

It wont be a daily driver like the GTA though

I'm not very patriotic as a rule but Aston Martin brings out the Brit in me.

I don't know about that. The X3 is a very cool vehicle.
