2006 Aston Martin V8 Vantage 2dr Coupe (4.3L 8cyl 6M)

Review

AM does not know how to make cars in large quantities and it shows with the V8. Failing gearboxes, lack of torque and smouldering clutches followed by lamentable excuses for the lack of quality from AM technical people were some of the resons why I got rid of the car after eight months. A porsche 911 S with a sports exhaust and the sport chrono option is not as pretty as the V8 but will go quicker, be reliable, make noise, retain its value and is cheaper. Watch AM V8 residual values drop as the quality issues come to light.The car is slow, that is why everyone says it needs more torque.The build quality is not what you would expect. Check warranty history if you are buying a used car.

Favorite Features

Design. The car is stunning except for the 1996 Toyata Celica rear end.

Suggested Improvements

Next time AM is ordering rear lights from Toyota, ask for a quality control manual as well!
