Most automotive enthusiasts would give their right arm to be able to drive the Ferrari F12 Berlineta, Lamborghini Aventador and Aston Martin Vanquish on some great winding roads.

The engineering of the car is the finest that you will find on a modern Aston Martin and even the engine bay is a thing of beauty.… Read more
The 2013 Aston Martin V12 Vantage is quite a sports car. Unlike many other Aston Martin’s the 2013 V12 Vantage is a drivers car, with its manual transmission and huge engine it just makes for a great drivers sports car.
