A car to die for- Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster
Pros : super stylish sports car with great speed and acceleration
Cons : extremely high price
Aston Martin is a well known sports car brand across the globe and I was lucky enough to get a free test drive of this superior and top notch car. When I was in London for a month, my friend arranged a test drive of Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster for me. The car is as amazing as you could expect. This sports car looks like a dream and the close to perfect driving and handling makes the drive even smoother and better.
The audio system installed here is excellent and makes the more delightful. Under the bonnet, Aston martin V8 Vantage Roadster has been fitted with very cool 4.7 litre of V8 engine, which enhances the overall performance of the car. For me, the car delivered an amazing performance. However, the automated manual transmission has a bit of lag during the gear shift. What is interesting here is that you could zoom away with a top speed of 290 kmph and go from 0-100 kmph in just 4.9 seconds. What else do you want in a car?
Another high point is the comfortable interiors, however, if we talk about the technologically advancements in the car in terms of electronics, these are missing a bit. On the other hand, things like Anti-Lock Braking System, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution System, Brake-Assist, driver and passenger side airbags, superior suspension and strong brakes come as standard safety features. The air conditioning system of the car was decent and not very impressive. For an Aston Martin, it should have been more efficient and better. On the whole, if you love speed and style, Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster looks like an inspiring one.
