Last weekend at the numerous shows in Carmel, CA I saw several V8 Vantages and I'm now hooked on this car. I think I might make this my next car. Any owners here with insights on driving experience?

2008 met vantage

Well Im glad you liked what you saw but the only thing Bad that I can say about the Vantage is that when your coming from anything that has 500hp or more under the hood this car will leave you a lil disappointed. As far as anything else goes I love it ,just wish it had more balls.good luck if you do decide to purchase its a really fun car.

I just came out of a 997. While it is slower, who cares! Japanese cars are keeping up with 997's now in a drag race.

Driving an Aston Martin is much more sophisticated that a Porsche.

If your not interested in tracking the car, then getting an Am is a no brainer.

The V8 Vantage is an amazing car. The new 4.7 really helps this cars lack of power vs. the old 4.3. 6 speed is the only way to go, as the sportshift just plain sucks. The Handling of the Vantage is its strong point, I drove a 4.3 6 speed around the Sebring Florida track and hardly even noticed the lack of power because I was amazed with the cornering. The sound of the Vantage is unbeatable. Best Aston you can buy, especially for the money.

Given where prices are right now, I am back to considering both a V8 Vantage and a Vanquish. The V12 is very appealing but am a bit nervious about some of the maintenance horror stories.
