I swear that the engine is alive!

Really, the V12VS engine is a snarling, snuffling, angry, raw meat eating beast. From start up to shut down the engine dominates this car. But that is no bad thing. Take a beautiful body, a very capable chassis, fine steering, the best carbon ceramic brakes i have ever used, a lovely quality interior and then add a soundtrack worthy of the gods and its a recipe for a wonderful ownership experience. Ok a Porsche may be technically better at 10 tenths around the bends, but offer me a nice Alpine pass and a choice of cars and I will be reaching for the Astons emotional control unit (Aston speak for the key) every single time. Enjoy these before St Greta bans them

It’s not actually a car; it’s an experience!

I’ve owned many performance cars; won’t bore you, except to say the range goes from ‘70 AAR Cuda to 911 Turbo/R Turbo. Now, it is this Aston. Yes, it’s a manu-matic 7 speed. I hear folks talk about the pure manual, throwing buckets of shade on my shifter, but I doubt many have driven both and fewer still have mastered the auto (myself included). It is a peculiar device with no less than three ways to actuate your shifts. If you bother to read the owner’s manual and speak with someone that has experience with it, you’ll find a wonderful learning experience and lots of laughs as you realize you can make it sound and act like a manual, or make seamless, smooth changes, or just knock yourself into next Tuesday. People don’t slowly turn their heads upon spotting the visual erotica it is; the heads snap around like spring loaded dolls. Yes, the engine is like listening to a long, satisfying orgasm from a beautiful woman and a feeling of undeservedness overwhelms your head as you downshift, just because you can. I don’t drive it as frequently as I’d like to, but that keeps the experience at full boil each and every time.
