2006 Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Monday, July 24, 2006
Story by Jason Husman
I finally had an opportunity to take an Aston Martin V8 Vantage for a test spin on Saturday. We picked up a brand new Vantage at the Beverly Hills dealership and drove up to Malibu. We stopped and had some lunch at Dukes just off the Pacific Coast Highway.

After lunch I was able to take the car for a spin through some of the Malibu hills. I was quite impressed with the handling and ease of driving around the winding corners. The car makes quite a loud exhaust note when driven hard. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and I can't wait until mine arrives in late October or early November.

We didn't take many pictures, but we did attempt a few short videos. I was trying to capture the exhaust note and V8 sound.
