    Which one to choose...

    Re: Autocar TV: Aston's V8 Roadster meets its riva

    A nice profile from Edmunds:

    Re: Autocar TV: Aston's V8 Roadster meets its riva

    I like the looks also, but test results in recent issue of German AMS are nothing special. In fact with 0-200km/h in 18.9s car is slow...

    Re: Autocar TV: Aston's V8 Roadster meets its riva

    So true, but in a car like this you don't care.
    You just cruise around listening to the exhaust and watch panties drop, as Chris Harris said

    If you care about 0-200, you buy a GT3...or R8

    Re: Autocar TV: Aston's V8 Roadster meets its riva

    My favorite line: "27 times better looking than the equivalent Porsche. This car is in a different league."

    Re: Autocar TV: Aston's V8 Roadster meets its riva

    Wow, you sit DEEP down in the car. The guys head barely shows above the door. lol I know it is entirely subjective, but the engine note wasn't particularly good, I didn't think.

    And the reviewer is an [beep]. "People who like convertibles don't really like driving." What an amazingly dumb-ass comment.

    Re: Autocar TV: Aston's V8 Roadster meets its riva

    His comment obviously isn't completely correct, but his point makes a little sense. While driving a roadster people tend to look for different qualities in their driving experience. When he says "driving" he means actually driving the car fast, whereas roadster driving traditionally means the experience of being in the car, with the dynamics of the car not necessarily being the most important part of the experience.

    Of course this is by no means a rule, but it's not like it's an uncommon concept. It's the idea behind basically every roofless musclecar ever built.

    OF COURSE the engine note didn't sound SO loud because it's a video...and probably he hitted 3500 rpm...buddy, I saw this car, live, and I'm telling you....it's Nascar with Italian supercar...best sound EVER...

    I couldn't agree with you more. The AM Roadster is a fabulous car. Is it a track car like Porsche's? No. But who in the hell cares other than wannabees?
