    Re: New Aston Martin Vantage

    Those first two really show how far back the engine is, truly front mid-engine which has to help with handling and response. kiss

    Re: New Aston Martin Vantage

    This is a very nice spec. 1 of 59 special AMR editions. This is car 1 of 200 from the first run of manuals.BA3F279F-01D5-464F-A2DA-F199AC7194F9.jpeg

    Re: New Aston Martin Vantage

    Congrats! You inspired me to go and have a closer look just now at the local Aston dealer. I’m impressed. Lots of nice details in the interior and the mechanicals seem very well thought out. The decision to use a Merc V8 feels like a good one to me - why not use one from arguably the best in the business for these types of motors?

    What’s your impression of the gearbox vs a PDK-style box? I’ve not tried one of these modern ZF torque converter boxes..

    Re: New Aston Martin Vantage

    The Aston is all about the bespoke details. Such an event if you approach the car with the right mindset. It’s more hand crafted than mass manufactured. The gearbox is good. Not as snappy as the pdk and lurks a little at times setting off. But it’s a joy to drive. The engine is good but it does feel a bit like it’s being held back power wise. But the torque is great. And the sound - wow it’s obscene in track mode. 

    I am now spoiled. I couldn’t buy a non special Porsche. Life is too short. Or maybe because I am getting a bit older indecision some of the spec’d Astons don’t pop unless you get a good spec like this 59 car or mine.

    Re: New Aston Martin Vantage

    Love this spec. Had to take more pictures of the details before I took my 720.

    Re: New Aston Martin Vantage

    wow looks stunning! I miss manual a lot!


    Re: New Aston Martin Vantage

    Given the forum is so quiet - more Aston beauty photos

    another well spec’d vantage. Love the pop of the color in this photo. Now going for a drive in mine since the weather is so warm here today.

    Re: New Aston Martin Vantage

    Have you compared it to the Merc GT? Wonder how they stack up...

    Re: New Aston Martin Vantage

    I nearly got a GTR Pro.  The Pro is def a more hard driver focused car. But I didn’t like the feel of such a long front and how you sit in the car. The vantage feels so much more special.
