My first exposure to the Vantage was watching it battle Corvettes at the American Le Mans Series in the early to mid 2000s. Breathtaking looks and an intoxicating sound.

Now that I am able to afford one, I was looking back on reviews of the V8 Vantage. Many mentioned handling being a weak point. Coming from a Porsche background, handling is probably the most important characteristic in a sports car for me.

For those who have brought their Vantage to HPDE, track days, etc, what is the weak point for handling? Is this something that could be corrected with sticky tires, aggressive alignment, better dampers, and perhaps geometry correction?

Just wondering if it would be worth pursuing a Vantage, or if a "GT car" simply isn't for me.

Thanks
