2009 Aston Martin Vantage V8

Andrew Trahan

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.

To me this is the best Aston Martin. If the DB9 is the elegant sports GT, this is the compact sport CAR. The compactness gives it a more purposeful look. This is the "if I can only have one car" for me.
