Nice and exotic car
Pros: Gorgeous styling, rewarding handling dynamics, small production numbers ensure exclusivity. Cons: Gives up some performance to more mainstream rivals, narrow seats and footwells, unknown reliability.
The best car I have ever owned
Always wanted an Aston Martin. Bought this pre-owned a few months ago. Have owned a Porsche, Corvette, Audi S4, numerous MB's (currently own 3)....none come even close to the fun of the Aston (though S4 was fabulous 12 months a year). Really useable power curve, flat handling in any curves and classic styling. Very driveable without the twitchiness of other exotic cars. A true daily driver (when it isn't raining!)
This is it. Looks everywhere. Speed, power, style. Plenty of trunk space for weekend bags. Handling like a Ferrari for the price of a new BMW M3.
Fun and sexy!!
Hands down the best car I have owned from Benz to BMW's and Maserati. Fun to drive and a good bang for you buck!
Vantage - fun, reliable, good value for money
After buying my first Vantage a few months ago, I can state a few things without equivocation: 1. Head turner - this car gets a LOT of attention. More than a few times I have walked up on to where the car is parked to find gawkers snapping photos... 2. Value for money - sure, its pricey, but for an exotic, is an excellent deal. If you buy from the dealer, you can get a comprehensive factory warranty on the car for up to 10 years from manufacture date for less than 3K per year. So - if you are afraid of major maintenance down the road, don't be - its actually more sensible than you think... 3. Reliability - I have yet to be stranded by this baby...but I do worry about the horror stories 4. Sounds - the motor and the exhaust should be FDA approved replacements for Viagra. Enough said. 5. Smells - The leather in this car gives off a smell that cannot be duplicated. It is beautiful, rich, smooth, and intoxicating. Overall, a fantastic car, reasonably priced, and good risk management is available if you buy from the dealer. If you buy private party, check with Aston about buying extended warranty - you might still be able to do it.
This car is an absolute joy to drive, with good performance and handling. No matter where the destination, you know you have arrived in the classiest sports car there is. Every little detail of this vehicle is well thought out, and it is doubtful I would ever be content with anything less than another Aston Martin in the future.
