    Came across a AM V8 Vantage today

    Holy cow, what a car!!

    This is car art/porn, and AM is in a league of its own when it comes to looks IMO, I have never been so "shocked" at seeing a car live for the first time before - this is a stunningly beautiful car!

    Easy: all lawyers get a free tour in the V8 Vantage.

    Re: Came across a AM V8 Vantage today

    It's the lawyers incentive to win the clients case. Prove me innocent and there's a Vantage waiting outside for you

    The Vantage looks great in that bright yellow with kahn wheels! I had a good run against one on the highway while in the Cayenne. Quite a quick little car

    Re: Came across a AM V8 Vantage today

    It's such a great lookin car.
    Anyone else like me look at the AM V8 and think maybe that would be an option instead of another Porsche ?


    That idea lasts about 10 seconds before I'm like - Nahhhh. But it does get you thinking. I need to get to my AM dealer that just opened in Long Island, really curious. Anyone been there yet ?

    Re: Came across a AM V8 Vantage today

    I think I must be the only one on earth who isn't that impressed by the looks. I mean, it's nice, but I don't think it's better looking than a 911.

    I really like it from the front and from the angle of the first picture but I still can't get used to the back of the car seen from the side or the rear. So I'll give a second vote to the 911, especially the Turbo and GTx ones

    I've walked by Miller Motorcars in CT and that thought has been running through my mind often these days.

    Re: Came across a AM V8 Vantage today

    Not only does it look great but its sounds great! Those of you who prefer Porsche styling over the AM really should have your eyes checked.

    However, I do agree that back end of the AM could be a little more stylish.

    Re: Came across a AM V8 Vantage today

    People have different opinions when it comes to styling. If you can't understand this maybe you should get your head checked.

    They have a rather bright yellow AM V8 in the showroom. Definitely makes an impact on your mind for sure. 997TT or GT3 for me next....

    I had the pleasure of a AM v8 accelerating full throttle away from me has I sat in my 997 with the window down. WOW! It was just like the Top Gear review video versus the 997 and M6. Absolutely shocking sound!

    Re: Came across a AM V8 Vantage today

    Visually in person, its staggeringly good looking.

    Yes, I had thought about it last year, but this website gradually reinforced my desire for cars with high performance abilities, so I have temporarily cooled to the idea and still crave Porsche 911Turbo's. Perhaps an AMV8 in a Vantage and S iteration will rekindle interest....

    Do you mean Volante? (as in convertible)

    Re: Came across a AM V8 Vantage today

    I have a question.

    How can something so beautiful only cost $110,000 USD?

    No excuses needed

    It will be interesting to see if there will be a supercharged Vantage (S?) now that Jaguar is about to release the new (supercharged) XKR.

    After some intense Vantage stalking I came across another Vantage here in Oslo. Not my choice of color, but it still looks f....ing great

    Re: Came across a AM V8 Vantage today

    Hello,

    yes this car is beautiful. And yes, the red one isn't as nice as the silver one. Silver is my favourite color.

    I came across AM when i visited my local Mercedes Benz dealer in the city and discoverd the nearby AM shop. The sales floor was very small and only four cars where shown. But wow, these cars were worth spending some hours to get all the details.

    But for example when getting in the DB9 i was very disappointed.
    The interieur is definitely not as beautiful as the exterieur. It looks like a Ford Focus imitation with some inexpensive plastic and aluminim gadgets. Furtermore the trunk is very very small. Too small for me.

    But the rest and especially the price were awesome!

    Greets,

    Sin
