British Elegance,Speed, and Style by dj-oser.....ancient egypt......egypt on 10/27/2002. Trim: 2002 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The styling in this Aston Martin is incredible, even though many think it's a Ferrari. Acceleration is very fast with very little noise when going under 100 mph. High quality interior; burl walnut trim, racing leather, jewled speedometer. Always a hit at the British car shows in Denver. Oh, and the heart-pumping sound of a 5.9 liter V12 right next to you.
Cons: Not for tall drivers, anyone over 6 feet will find themselves driving this car in Simian position. Acceleration isn't up to class standards. Expensive repairs; changing the oil costs me $500 a session at Aston Marton of Colorado. Expect to pay up to $100,000 over sticker. Only 2 color choices.
Overall review: If you have enough money for this high-speed luxury cruiser, you should consider it. Their are faster cars, more luxurious cars, and safer cars. But none combines all these fine attributes like the Vanquish. If you save up the money you will also have to locate on of these ever so rare cars. It took me almost 3 years to puchase one.

I own one by Blow me on 08/08/2002. Trim: 2002 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This is one of my favorite cars in my collection. It always receives a good deal of "looks" when I take it out on a drive. Upkeep is expensive compared to other performence minded cars, but the trade off is that the import racer next to you at a stop light is still wondering what the f@ck that thing was when he is losing sight of your tail lights.
Cons: A 3500 dollar 6000 mile service at a dealership for an oil and filter change, and "inspection." I also had to replace the driver side head light (not covered by warrenty) at aprx. 2300 miles. This was not cheap either.
Overall review: Anyone who has 240,000 dollars in their pocket will need to make sure that they can maintain this car. If you are not a doctor or lawyer, make sure that your lottery winnings will pay for this car to remain on the road.

Second Ashton by Dvlmn on 04/23/2002. Trim: 2002 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This particular vehicle will not break any hearts but it did consume my wife, and myself. Styling and performance is a perfext fit. Consider also a Porsch boxter if your a collector or a person of such witts..
Cons: Not alot of horsepower in the mountains the airflow reduction in the front remast is a tad reclusive.
Overall review: Nice piece of machinery I hope you all could really have one.. Dont right a review if your full of it!!

SuperCar by Aston from Manhattan, KS on 10/30/2001. Trim: 2002 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Everything. The only complaint I've ever heard is about the interior. They had planned on using aluminum, or a like metal, but couldn't get the finish they wanted, so they opted for a less expensive material. Apparently the guy who tested it didn't like the grip on the optional steering wheel.
Cons: The $228,000 price tag may slow my efforts in purchasing this vehicle, but if I had it, it would be worth every penny. Besides the blow to the pocketbook (and the fact that the mere 300 slated to land on U.S. shores are spoken for) I would consider it a must have.
Overall review: Amazing. Beautiful. Luxurious. Powerful. Sleek. Let the naysayers have with it what they will, they will never gain the opportunity to experience such a fine automobile. Most of us never will...but in dreams.
