Yeah liv2drv... it does seem underpowered as far as expectation from the car goes... i guess that why the owner is thinking of trading it in for a DB9 heh. Also more or less convinced him to get a Nissan GTR as well, lets see where it goes.

No, it's the same for both LHD & RHD. And that picture was taken by vcash in the US.

Hmm .. Thought I'd give my 2 cents worth ...

The AMV8 and DB9 are two completely different cars. Where the AMV8 represents more lines, design, sound and awe inspiring looks, the DB9 is more of a beefy GT car. Or as Jezza would call it " A footballer's car" .

If the owner is your friend, and I am sure he is financially very sound, I would suggest him to keep both the V8 and the Db9 or better still, for the need for speed, get the GTR

But those are my 2 cents.

Both of them are amazing cars none the less. May the owner enjoy them in good health.

ecksreturns, thats a good thought, although i dont think he would keep both the DB9 and the Vantage. I guess his dad has changed his mind and keeping the vantage now. Although he is on the lookout for a buyer for his FairladyZ which will be replaced by the GTR.

Cheers.
