    V12 in a V8 Package.
    The Vantage is the sportier Aston. The S bumps that up a notch (as does the V12).
    The DB9 is a 2+2; the Rapide pushing more out to the GT end of the spectrum.
    I like that the Vantage is a "hatchback"; wish my DB9 was like that for luggage access but I needed the legroom at 6'5".
    The grill on that car is very aggressive. Would look even better in a contrasting color; say, matching the red brake calipers.
    If it was a stick it would be a no brainer!

    I think the v12 vantage is the best bang for the buck...this one is price very competitively...looking at the car, it probably has a $210-215 msrp....

    My guess is it would be more money if it was a manual.

    Nothing wrong with the car itself, it is just the F1 type transmission that most folks do not like anymore.
    Manuals are much more expensive (less powerful 2011/12 V12 is at $130-$140K), more desirable and are creeping slowly up in value.
    If you don't mind the transmission, the car above is an unbelievable amount of car for the $$.

    Also looks like the passenger front wheel is curb chipped but it may be the lighting. Even with damage history, that car is a STEAL.
