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?
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.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.
