Aston Martin V8 Vantage - Guest drives

Why are Aston Martin's so popular? It's simple, they're beautiful to look at, brilliant to drive and James Bond has got one! This model is the Vantage AMR. Inspired by Aston Martin’s rich racing pedigree, the AMR is the most dramatic version of the Aston Martin Vantage ever.

What to expect from the Aston Martin Thrill

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage AMR is an English Supercar. There are no extravagant spoilers to spoil the flowing lines.

The 4.7-litre V8 instantly explodes into life with one push of the starter button. Sat on tick over you're aware of it but as the revs increase, the volume goes through the roof as the engine produces a note like no other - something that has to be heard to be believed.

Performance, agile handling and hand-built charm never fail to impress
