2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage N420 Roadster 2dr Convertible (4.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Recently took delivery of 2011 N420 roadster with 6-speed manual. Came out of a Porsche 997 C4S cabriolet, my second 911 C4. Loved the Porsches, but was in mood for a new driving sensation. N420 is magnificent. Very fast, comfortable, beautiful. The torque is amazing in every gear. Sport suspension a bit firmer than 997 in normal mode, but not as firm as Porsche's sport mode. An excellent balance between the two. Firm yet compliant. The sport exhaust is perfectly tuned. Under 3K sound is subdued. Cross 3K, especially under rapid acceleration and the beastly growl is unleashed.


Favorite Features

Torque, acceleration, well balanced and confidence inspiring handling, comfort, seats, materials, beauty, carbon fiber accents, exhaust note, stereo, easy to drive hard through twisties or to just cruise in, open air motoring. Exclusivity.


Suggested Improvements

Cockpit wind with top down - N420 roadster interior a touch more windy than the 997 cabriolet, especially at speed. Thirsty - you can watch the gas gauge drop on a spirited drive. Center panel display - a bit hard to read with sun light on it. At $155k would like 30 more horses, even more torque, stronger brakes, and a 4 year warranty. Overall the N420 is an exceptional car I'd slot between Porsche's 997C4S and turbo models, but oh so much more sensuous.

2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage 2dr Coupe (4.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

i just bought this car and love it. it puts a smile on my face every time i get in the car. it has the nicest interior of any car in its price range and drives perfectly. my biggest complaint is that i am now spoiled when it comes to other cars.


Favorite Features

looks, handling, leather, piano wood, and of course, the umbrella.


Suggested Improvements

i think most options should really be standard.
