1983 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Review
Irresistible - Just Has To Be Driven — Wonderful motor. Cruised happily at 125mph on European motorways most of the day and burbled contentedly around town. Comfortable and felt like a much smaller car to drive once you got used to it. This was actually just the Saloon, not Vantage but that option wasn't available in the list here. It was the sort of car that you could just gaze at - but not for long as you'd also just have to take it for a spin and smile. Got lots of attention too in those days. Including the police.
Pros: Lovely lines and very classy
Cons: Useless handbrake

A Beautiful Model With A Boring Conversation.
Good: Most beautiful car available. Even prettier than the DB9 due to smaller proportions. Good handling, a little too soft for my taste, but very settled when going fast. Feels better in open space... Read More
