Aston Martins are, in my opinion, one of the most underappreciated “super” sports cars. So sick.
I think you mean, overpriced cars!
I love the looks, but speed wise, Astons don’t do it for me. Would much rather spend this money on a Porsche, R8 Spyder, or even a Ferrari California.
I love Astons, and I love soft tops, but Aston kind of ruined the DB9, performance wise, when they chopped the top off it. For my (imaginary) money, if I was going to buy a convertible Aston I’d rather have the Vantage V-12 roadster. Having said all that, the DB9 Volante is still a beautiful car to look at, and it makes a beautiful noise. And when it first came out, there wasn’t a lot that could stand up to it as far as looks and noise were concerned. And let’s be honest, most high performance cars in North America never get driven anywhere near their top speed, or at the edge of their performance envelope, so does it really matter if a DB9 would get blown away by the R8 Spyder. At the end of the day I figure all that really matters is that you’re happy with what you drive, and if Phil Collen loves his DB9 Volante, which he obviously does, then good for him.
