A guy in my street who works for Aston Martin has just brought a new Vantage home. I popped out for a quick look and took a few snaps.
It’s much bigger than the old one. Jury’s out on the front but it’s sounds amazing!

When I look at that car I feel like I'm looking at a hot woman from behind. All seems to be spot on until she turns around. The face of the Vantage isn't very Aston.....bit of a prawn in my book.

The engine will be an absolute peach, great job AMG.

The rest of it...inside and out...is an awkward looking thing.

I think the colour combination will be critical on these. It does not do subtle very well. Needs a bit of loud colour to match the sound.

Got a test drive soon in one, but it’ll have to be good to get me out of my current toy... Razz

I quite like it Very Happy

They have just ramped production up 300% so are probably expecting it to sell well Grin

Unfortunately I like driving and not spendig time at the dealers being bent over, so I`m out Hand

For any old movie buffs on here, this car reminded me of Ed 209!

That front end is ugly as sin. It looks a Maserati gone horribly wrong.

Aston have missed a trick here as buyers "buy" with their eyes, hence the outgoing model being such a hit. I'd take the same engine'd Merc AMG GT/GTR over this car all day long.

Oh, and don't get me started on the dogs dinner of an interior...

Ah I see AML have decided if we are going to have cars that the owners need to spend so much time at the dealers lets try and improve reliability by making it look like a masda on steriods Grin and as for the cabin I can only assume the designer is a star wars fan what an ugly far too busy interior . not very classy layout and as cheap looking as a base BMW interior

The front takes some getting used to but the sound it made coming into the street was awesome. I didn’t pay too much attention to the interior as my son was trying to press every button on the console whilst he was sat in it. This car is £150K!!! That’s seems a lot of money when you look at what that buys you from our favourite marque. 😎

It’s looking a bit slow imo... Evo just recorded a 0-100 time of 9.1 secs, that’s half a second slower than my M4!

Also it came last in a 4 way test, behind a R8, 540C and the winner a 911 GTS! Mr. Green

Atrocious interior. There’s no way this is selling well.
