My vert is paid off and ill need another car after I give back the E...so im saving my pennies.
The Vantage is pretty astounding in terms of how it looks, the general profile of Aston’s have some of the best lines I’ve ever laid eyes on…But I can’t get over how “slow” they are for the cost. Obviously they’re not slow in absolute terms, but relative to other cars you can purchase for that type of money, they just don’t match up. For $80K I’d much prefer a used Porsche or M car….but the beauty of the Aston is pretty special. I see a decent number of ‘em in Georgetown (silly place, don’t ever visit it) and they’re one of those rare cars that instantly seizes your full attention. M5s and 911s, though I consider them superior cars, don’t do that for me..
