The Aston Martin Vantage S
Reminds us of:
Who else? James Bond. To help Bond movies stay interesting, this Aston’s roaring 4.8-litre V8 now has 430 bhp along with almost 50 kgm of torque. Quite the thing to chase down the scarred villain. A new SportShift gearbox has seven tightly spaced ratios to keep the engine howling, and since the Vantage S has a custom tuned traction control system and dynamic stability program, anyone can slide about with bare minimum driving skills. Eva Green will be impressed.
Best experienced at:
Fairly exotic locales, with lots of fancy gizmos and hot women thrown in. Think Monaco, Nice?
How would you like your Aston Martini, Sir?
