Another beautiful Aston Martin. I would hesitate to call any 500 plus hp car slow, but an automatic transmission does slow things down quite a bit. Still fast, but less involving. The beach is beautiful as well, looks like Fort Walton Beach Florida with such white sand. I wanted an Aston Martin for a long time, mostly because of the James Bond connection. In fact though, the closest I came was owning a Jaguar XK8 Coupe in British Racing Green. Same platform as the Aston Martin DB7, but a different engine. Unfortunately it was as unreliable as it was beautiful. Hopefully newer Jaguars and Aston Martins are more reliable.

As usual, Aston Martin has built a beautiful car, and 565 horsepower, great.

The new Aston Martin Vanquish Volante - pure beauty and soul. It looks just so excellent! It is also claimed to be the stiffest drop-top Aston. Ah, just a shame the car is equipped with same slow transmission that limits car's performance. But still, the new Volante is just a maginificent GT convertible.
