There's nothing quite like an Aston Martin. Nothing else has Power, Beauty, and Soul. I Had a DB9 previously and tried a lot of other cars in-between the Vanquish, but they all were missing the soul. They just didn't quite scratch the itch. Although I regretted selling the DB9, it gave me the opportunity to upgrade to the Vanquish. This beauty puts a smile on my face every time I think of it let alone drive it around sunny California with the top down. Then, there is the intoxicating sound and the nods of approval by passers by. It is the last of the naturally aspirated V12 engines, which is preferable to the turbos and such. Now, every thing is going electric, but this will remain an icon forever. I consider myself extremely lucky to own such a car and will baby it for years to come.
