yeah very stiff feeling very tough framing in the old days you got the feeling Aston had 40 designers drawing pretty pictures and one poor guy trying to put them all together but not anymore this Vantage feels engineer so what’s not to like no it’s not the lightest sports car and this 8-speed auto I’d prefer to have a manual gearbox which Aston says I can have just not for another year that’s like a restaurant saying sure you can have the lobster tomorrow night but there’s a bigger problem with the newly expensive v8 Vantage and it’s that the Mercedes AMG GTS because if you want a two-seat sports car with a Mercedes engine in the front you can have one of those instead basically the same engine but 10,000 pounds cheaper and really good to drive time for a little race now the Merc has a little more power but the Aston has a little more torque this should be close surely Berk are gonna keep their best engines for themselves right you don’t invite someone over for the weekend and let them sleep in the master bedroom do you oh he got me now some might say there’s nothing more British than losing to a German obviously I would never say that I would say there’s more to buying a car than its ability to win a drag race so which one should you buy ok I know the deal the Merc might be cheaper and faster and have its own engine but the one you want is the Aston because it’s an Aston right wrong if you want a sports car with a Mercedes motor buy a Mercedes I would you
