The #astonmartin #Vantage was the last Aston introduced with the Tadek Marek design Straight 6 engine. It was basically a run out to use up stocks of that engine in the new AM v8 twin headlight body. It will never go down as one of Aston’s greats but they have a special significance for me as an example was literally the first car I ever rode in, when my parents brought me home from the hospital at a week old! My Dad owned two of the seventy one made the first one was written off when it was rear ended at a set of traffic lights. Dad always said of it that he was impressed with the performance until he tried a Ferrari Daytona and realised the Aston was totally gutless in comparison! He sold the Aston to buy the Daytona and that launched him into the world of Ferrari. He only went back to Aston Martins once with a DB9 but hated it and sold it after 3 weeks. Despite the nostalgia I have no real desire to own one of these but would love the opportunity to compare one to the Daytona to see how different the performance is.
