I bought a new Vantage V8 in 2007 and drove it for 10 years. I loved that car, but my dream was always to own an Aston Martin V12. In 2016 my wife "gave" me (permission to buy...!) a DBS Volante Carbon Black Edition for my 50th birthday. Oh joy! I have been in heaven ever since. The power, the sound, the exclusivity. Congratulations on your V12 Vantage. That is a fabulous car. Enjoy!
