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

Best looking car in the exotic category. Drives like a race car with exceptional handling and breaking. A bit expensive in its category and shifting gears in automatic mode is rougher but when put in ... Read More

Everlasting looks. Sharp and sexy....but not reliable in some sense impractical, with the price tag AM could deliver a much faster car. Nevertheless, theres always something that attracts you in some ... Read More
