    Both the Vanquish and DB5 will let you down on a regular basis though, lets see how AM measure up to Mercedes on the F1 circuit next year :).

    Is that like comparing a Ferrari road car to a Mercedes road car? Comparing F1 cars to road cars is pointless.

    Win on Sunday, sell on Monday... that was the mantra


    Aston’s are nice, I was in the owners club for many years. Beautiful to look at and make a wonderful sound but they’re about as unreliable as a builders promise.
    If you want a reliable and beautiful super car buy a 911.

    No but knew a few Aston owners all of which found them financially draining and off loaded them within 6 months (see above).

    Perhaps you could ask him for receipts for the badges he "purchased".

    I suspect the chances of the owner producing receipts might be less than zero.
