This aston martin is a very nice, comfartable, fun, beautiful, and expenive car. For the price its performance is low although it is not bad at all. It is a beauty with many amazing features you just wouldnt find in many other cars. It is a very loud car, which i fing to me one of my most favorite parts of the car, the sound of the engine raoring with make you say wow every time.It is a small car but i am a huge 6 foot 2 guy and i fit just fine. But if you are looking for a fast car but not willing to pay 130 grand don't think about it. I am not saying it isn't fast(it is) but there are other cars for much less that perform better. But i would have to say this car overall is the best car out there unless your willing to shell out 200 grand or more.

Aston hits a home run!!

Baseball may be an American sport, but Aston has hit a home run with the V8 Vantage. From the unbelievable sexy looks to the V8 soundtrack and jewel like interior...there isn't a bad pick on the car. ...
Baseball may be an American sport, but Aston has hit a home run with the V8 Vantage. From the unbelievable sexy looks to the V8 soundtrack and jewel like interior...there isn't a bad pick on the car. The driving dynamics are as good as a 911 and you will not see yourself coming and going. This is the kind of car Ferrari wishes that they still made...Sexy, great performance, top quality materials, and rare.........except it has fabulous build quality that Maranello can't get near....and I have had countless Ferrari's, Lambo's, Mercs and Porsche's. Well done Aston! This car is a 10+. A real keeper.

PRETTY TO LOOK AT, BUT IT STOPS THERE...

Great looking car, Ford engine, many Volvo parts also. "Sport Shift" transmission is a total abomination! Hedious service costs. Too heavy for a real performer. Terrible fuel ecconomy, means that your...
Great looking car, Ford engine, many Volvo parts also. "Sport Shift" transmission is a total abomination! Hedious service costs. Too heavy for a real performer. Terrible fuel ecconomy, means that your always looking for a gas station. Leather dash is guranteed to shrink and pull. This could have been avoided by allowing more material to allow for inevitable shrinkage. Bad visibility
