2008 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Convertible Roadster 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 6M)
A car this beautiful and this beautifully made doesn't have to be the fastest in its class. It is very quick, handles extremely well, and is a treat just to sit in. There is nothing quite like it in that regard. It is a thrill just to see it in the garage. And it is a blast to drive.
Looks, performance, handling. And oh, that leather, it is immaculate. Even the stitching is extraordinary.
A spare tire would be nice. And larger buttons for the minor controls, like radio and navigation. Oh, and a better nav system, maybe a Japanese one, would be an improvement.
