The V8 Vantage performs incredibly well, but that's not why I adore it so much. The Aston's appeal is an emotional one. It makes you feel like a rock star, it inspires you to love life.

I am in love with the color of this test car. In fact, I left it parked outside Sunday afternoon because I figured the neighbors would appreciate this beautiful piece of sculpture sitting in my driveway. The inside isn't too bad, either - I couldn't find a rough edge anywhwere or a piece of material that didn't feel well-made and expensive. Just a lovely car.

The Vantage is a beautifully bespoke piece of art. It's rare, voluptuous, and a fine piece of engineering. You can't help but admire every button, the beautiful gauges, the leather and Alcantara, and - wait, I'm repeating everything Rusty Blackwell just wrote! Nothing to add there, except I also spent a weekend with our Audi R8 (which has 44,000 on the odometer) and I had a lot more fun.

The only car I can really compare this Vantage to is another Aston Martin. Perhaps Aston is stealing a few potential Porsche 911 or Audi R8 buyers with the V8 Vantage, but I'd be worried about losing DB9 sales to the slightly smaller, slightly cheaper Vantage. Inside, the cars are virtually identical and, though the Vantage is much cheaper, Aston Martin's own web site lists it as just .3 second slower to the 60 mph mark. The DB9 will theoretically do 190 mph to the Vantage's 180 mph, but that's not good for much more than bragging rights.
