"It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it."
Can I do it ?
I can't get over how perfect this car looks. Maybe the nicest car in the world.
Fixed it for you.
I agree, it is such a shame that it doesn't have the fire power to match its looks and name.
2013 Aston Martin Vanquish Set For Pebble Beach Debut
This car is so british, so well design, so elegant... Fantastic. If only the engine was on par with the design.
I was skeptical first but the DBS has officially been succeeded. The new Vanquish looks like the business. However the car manufactures need return to the past when a review was a proper review behind the wheel. Now we have:
Prototype Passenger Ride
Launch Car Passenger Ride
First Look at Media Event
Long Term Review
It's getting out of hand!
I don't think it needs it. The sound of that V12 makes up for it:
You can't argue against the sound of an Aston, the DBS/Vanquish and Maserati Gran Turismo have the most satisfying exhaust note of all the luxury coupes money can buy. Shame the performance and driving dynamics aren't on par.
Sounds like a uncut racecar. Him fumbling for the key is hilarious. Long as they look and sound like that they don't have to be class leading in performance.
With looks like that, I doubt many buyers care or will use its "driving dynamics" or lack thereof.
An Aston is simply a tuxedo on wheels. To attract pussycat dolls.
At the risk of being slaughtered by Aston fans world wide, I am the only one that is entirely sick of Aston altogether? It's a beautiful perfect. No doubt. Stunning and borderline perfect. But I just can't get over the feeling that the entire line up looks so incredibly similar to one another. I'm all for brand unity but...
I'd be more worried about the fact that a "performance" car manufacturer is still incapable of producing an engine with over 100 bhp per litre....
Very good point as well. Technologically, they are more than a little behind the times.
I don't think Aston Martin needs any "tech". All needed is A/C, Infotainement and maybe Home-Link. Don't need electric seats, all king of gadgets and useless stuff, but I still don't understand why they are so heavy. I agree, 100PS/L is a must for any sports car/exotic car. Even the cheap GT86 or Clio RS can do that. But Maserati and Aston Martin not. Some fate for both: beautiful but "slow".
