    Does anyone have any Aston Martin experience? In particular, the V8 Vantage and the DB7. Not looking at replacing anything I currently have, just add to the jumble.

    well i can tell you from a top gear video that clarkson, one of the top car reviewers chose the vantage v8 over the 360.. large reason for that is the f1 gearbox, which was an earlier version which he DESPISED..the video is on kazaa..look for it and if u cant find it pm me

    that was a DB7 vantage which is a V12 .

    He's asking about the V6 DB7 and the V8 Vantage which was the model that the Virage replaced ( as seen in The Living Daylights Jame Bond movie )

    I took out a 79 for a drive a few years ago and really liked it. I also was looking at one in Marina Del Rey recently at Chequered Flag in metallic green, I believe an 02.

    I am currently a DB 2/4 owner, and I was fond of the DB7, but I never drove one.

    Over all the Vantage is a great GT car.
