I envy you Stratos! You share a work of Art with 007. The Aston Martin is also James Bond's car of choice (along with Walther PPK, and Vodka Martinis- shaken not stirred!). He drove Beemers in a few movies now he's back to a DBS V12 in Casino Royale. The Aston made most famous by Bond was of course the DB-5. Who can forget the iconic DB5 regn no BMT216A of Goldfinger or the classic Aston vs Ferrari chase (i think in Goldeneye) no przes for guessing who won!

Nice review, it is a crime to mention the mileage for a supercar but 7-8kmpl is very good for that power

She looks much more beautiful than the ferraris and lamborghini, so simple and gorgeous.

Excellent work Stratos, and lucky you..

By looks Astons are my favourite I think no sports car look as pretty as Astons, but the engines are so gurff and loud.

Actually the Ferrari won but only because Bond decided it was time to stop driving and start flirting with his passenger

Stratos!!

What an experience and what an absolutely lucky guy you are !!

Not only do you get to ride in an Aston, but you get a great driver and some lovely California twisties. And then to top that you get to give her a spin yourself!!!! I'm so jealous!

The only thing missing is the exhaust note! Do post the video!!

PS - Its funny to think about, but here is Stratos, driving an Aston Martin, while he has a BEST bus as his avatar picture, and looking forward to going home and driving his family's newly acquired Logan! Only on TBHP!

Wow ! timeless, elegant lines and the scenery only compliments it further !

The exhaust note reminds me of a WWII fighter coming in to attack with all guns blazing

"However, there are a few manufacturers that build mad supercars and cover them with a blanket of decency. One such manufacturer is Aston Martin."

That, basically, sums up why I have loved Aston Martins more than the Lambos and Ferraris.

Stratos, boss you just lived my dream. Aston Martins are one of my favourite cars right after the BMW M5 the Bentley FS. The AM spells 'class' in block capitals.

What a gorgeous car. I'd say that over and over and over again.

Cheers!
