It's smaller than I'd imagined......
I had a good look around the new Aston Martin V8 Vantage the other day when one attended a Helicopter Club of Great Britain event.
I have to say it looks very nice & would use the word "pretty" to describe it, but it's not a patch on the old brutal looking V8 Vantage - which was a personal favourite of mine.
I know the old Vantage was a bit agricultural & used Ford switchgear, the new Vantage is an altogether more modern & technically advanced car & therefore should be seen as progress, but it just doesn't have the presence of a Grand Tourer. It's small enough to be a nimble sports car, maybe they see the V12 Vanquish of more as a Grand Tourer?
