2007 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Coupe Base
There are 4 user reviews for the Base trim shown below
- The car is visually stunning, rides and handles well and is beautifully made.
- Fuel economy not great; power adequate but not a Porsche Turbo by any means; expensive.
Finally, someone has taken Porsche on in the niche they've owned for thirty or so years and done a fine job. While more expensive and not as fast as the current Carrera S, the Vantage is plenty quick, makes the 911 look ordinary, and provides driving pleasure and charisma no 911 has had since the last of the air-cooled cars in the late 90s. Build quality, finish and materials are first rate. Also makes the best noises this side of a vintage V12 Ferrari.
On the negative side, outward visibility takes some learning, since there's about 4 feet of the nose that is invisible to the driver and rear quarter vision is mirrors only. Luggage space is marginal, but golf clubs will fit and that's not really what these cars are about, anyway. Sportshift transmission is as good as similar arrangements used by Ferrari, BMW, etc., and works well in fast driving with nifty computer controlled throttle blips on downshifts, but still a bit jerky around town even in comfort mode. Now could we have another 75 or so hp?...read morehide

- Appearance, power, exclusive, feels like you are in a jet not a high powered luxury sports car.
- $130k only if you can't afford it.
I have never been in a car that turned so many heads...thumbs up and taking pictures are the norm. This car is awsome in every detail. Looks, handling, power, and fit! If you have the money, buy this car! Most people don't know what it is but they know it is special.

- handles amazingly well, good acceleration, very stylish.
- still 115K
The care handles very very well. 50-140mph happens very quickly, even though you don't feel like it is. A little stiff on the suspension, but that will be the case with cars that handle as well as this particular one. Great car!
