Aston to Geneva

With the Geneva Auto Show coming up I’m very surprised by Aston Martin pushing another tuned/track version of its Vantage line. Out of all the current Aston’s I’ve always loved the Vantage; especially when they coupled it with the V12 from the DB9.

This new version will be called the GT3 and will mimic their Gran Touring cars. It looks as though it will be street legal and might “compete” with Porsches famed track ready superstar the…..GT3….. Even though I’m not too sure on the design, mostly on the choice of the rear spoiler, I’m glad this Aston is still being reworked in multiple ways…..hopefully they will keep the manual transmission in the Vantage line up too.

Pretty 2012

#5 Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster

So pretty

The v12 Vantage is one of my favorite cars in the world with another can from Aston Martin as well that will be on this list as well. Its shape, style, and powerful engine make it look like a sleeper Aston Martin–if thats even possible–driving on the street. Everything about this car is remarkable and I’m glad Aston Martin reshaped their brand to bring back cars we always loved. I’m not a big fan of roadsters, except for the S2000 and other select few cars; but I can live with the V12 Vantage it looks good.
