Classy

Vehicle
2009 Aston Martin V8 Vantage 2dr Coupe (4.7L 8cyl 6AM)
Review
I completed a long (18 month) but fun process of driving all exotics out there except for Bentley, and at the end the Vantage was the clear winner. The key in my mind is that the Aston is pure motoring bliss. It looks, feels, and sounds other-worldly, and is completely classy. Also, I've been surprised by how much other motorists and peds love the car. Constant thumbs-up signs, digital photos.
Favorite Features
The entire package is a beautiful class act unlike any other car out there. Unlike Porsche, there truly is no substitute. It also helps that there are so few on the road. Many who see it don't even know what it is, or if they do it's "the James Bond car". Also, the 700W Alpine stereo is great.
Suggested Improvements
Better build quality; include maintenance as no-charge during warranty period (like BMW); NAV system for '09 was improved, but my $200 Garmin is still superior. Sportshift always prevents upshift when the steering wheel is turned. This is not always desirable; should be manually switchable.
