    DEFINATELY THE AMV8!!

    the DB9 has its auto issues, and apparently feels heavyer and bigger then it is.

    which is why i wouldnt want that car, the vanquish is a beautiful peice, but i think its got too much of a fan boy base now time to move on. not to mention the AMV8 is SEXXXXXY

    Oh, I am just going by A) standard high quality Aston Martin, and if I had an Aston, I would be rich enough to pay for repairs and things like that. And B) The sheer LOOKS of the DB9. I like how it kind of has "hips", and a nice "top" too
    The DB9 is one sexy beast!

    Doesn't matter. The level of performance in all of them are so high, it's above and beyond what I'd ever need (or in fact, what I really even want). Whichever one has the most midrange torque I guess?

    0-60 in 5 sec isn't that great for a sports orientated car

    Eh, I consider anything under 6 to be damn fast. I think my Dad's car would do it in 5.5-6 seconds, and you can't tell me that's not scary enough. I'm still scared to let it wind all the way up.

    You're dead right, but think of it this way: Astons are more of a gentlemen's car than Porsches, so it's not 100% about the performance either. Plus, the new AMV8 looks like it'll be the "baby Aston", and so it simply wouldn't do to have it outperforming the expensive ones!

    That would be something...maybe even something like the last of the Aston Vantages, with the twin-supercharged V8. Talk about power - AND torque.
