Please also add Laguna Seca
Vantage- 1:38.42
AMG- 1:35.30

and the AMG is definitely faster than 11.5 at the quarter.

They're the exact same car, what do both of you expect? It's like comparing a Chevy Tahoe High Country to a GMC Yukon Denali (or Cadillac Escalade).

Sorry wrong button. Mercedes-Benz use DCT transmissions also the V8's are in a different state of tune but most importantly the chassis technologies are completely different as are production techniques. You can get a manual transmission in the Aston Martin too. So there's enough difference! ;)
