Hands down the V8 Vantage is the sexiest thing on 4 wheels. If I had to choose from that list that would be my choice.
However there is one issue and it's the one I am wrestling with right now.
The problem is the 2010 Jaguar XKR. It's only $95k and will blow the doors off every single one of those cars except possibly the 911 turbo. If only I wanted a 911 turbo it would be an easy answer.
The V8 Vantage is basically a uprate Jaguar XKR. However until Aston starts using the new drivetrain there is really no point in buying the Aston right now. Sure on the outside the Aston is sexier. From the drivers seat the jag looks better and my lord it is so much faster and easy to drive.
So now the question is, will Aston even upgrade the V8 Vantage? If they did it would be just as fast as the DB9 and Vanquish. So that would require them to upgrade the whole range. Boy Jaguar is really a thorn in Astons side at the moment.
Also with Paramount Performance $7k upgrade for the XKR you now have 600hp. For under 110 grand you got a luxury GT car that can beat a ZR1 and destroy the 911 turbo.http://www.paramount-performance.com...nversions.html
For now I am just gonna wait and see what Aston does.
