2019 Aston Martin Vantage

One of the slickest looking cars ever produced, the Aston Martin Vantage is guaranteed to draw attention wherever you drive. It’s maybe not as guaranteed to actually drive, but who buys exotic cars for their reliability anyway. This example is coming in from Indiana listed at $97,000 with 16,000 miles.

This is not the V12 so it is just rocking the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8. Admittedly, that engine configuration is not rare among performance German cars.

They don’t look like this though! Originally stickered at $150K, it’s already taken some of the depreciation hit used car buyers love.

This car should handle like it’s on absolute rails; boasting a 50/50 weight distribution and a rear mounted ZF transmission. In Forza 5, I absolutely loved my Vantage.

The interior looks about as clean and British as you’d expect. Nothing overly opulent here or boastful. Some may say that the center console looks kind of dated, but I like the lower tech approach. I think it will age much better.

Now that the Toyota Supra (insert BMW joke) has been resurrected, I feel like they may have borrowed some design cues from the Vantage. The similarity is uncanny; I’m sure Aston Martin owners don’t love hearing that.

That being said, this tail is absolutely mean and manages a style and class that both Lamborghini and Ferrari can’t quite hit.

Here’s the listing link. If you do buy it, please let me know. I’m not affiliated, and won’t earn any money, but want fun people to drive fun cars.

I also can’t put any car seats in it, which is lame. Some day soon though, I’ll be able to make some room for a 2 seater!

In case this is too exciting, take a look at some Mercedes-Benz.
