Took my first drive in AM V8. I was loving it, thinking oh my, then... in front of me... a Bugatti Veyron. jeez, talking about taking the wind out of my sails.

Was the Vantage the 4.7 or the 4.3, manual or automatic, coupe or roadster?

I'd rather take a vantage or almost any high performance car over a Veyron...
253 m/h, 1001 hp and massive forced induction is nothing compared to car-driver interaction for which I respect the vantage so much

2007 4.3 manual coupe, with 7,000 miles on the odo. God, I love this car.
This one I am very attentive to right now, this is the Aston to buy after the 4.7 was released... I doubt the 4.7 will depreciate much any time soon, and with the 4.3 manual having good performance (the car is still pretty good in it's bracket) it makes one very nice car...
The engine you do have to rev a bit before you get the torque (unlike with the V12, but still a practical car.
