Question A Question to All Petrol Heads! Why are Astons so Attractive?

As a huge fan of Astons, I have always wondered why we car enthusiasts are so attracted to them. After all an Aston has the power to seduce upon sight. Why?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I'm not as much of an aston martin fan as I am jaguars, if we are talking about that sort of car.

Eh, for the price of an Aston Martin you can get a Lamborghini or a Ford GT. And I'd rather have a Gallardo over a V8 vantage. I will say Astons look "sexier" but not as aggressive as the aforementioned super cars ya know?

Have you actually ever owned either ? I have ( my current Aston is a DB9 Volante ) and I can tell you that Aston Martins are vastly superior machines. That is not to say that Lambos are not great, they are, and I fully understand anyone who disagrees with me about Astons, but Astons are truly quality cars and their quality goes way beyoned their mere mechanicals. For a start, irrespective of who owns the factory, Astons have always defined that true English style and quality that can only really be found elsewhere in a Bentley or maybe a Bristol. As the great man, Clarkson,himself said, just saying the phrase "Let's take the Aston tonight, darling", is worth owning one for. Not only that, but I drive to Europe in mine regularly, and the attention it gets, even in countries like France where the French are renowned for their aloofness, is quite incredible. Why is this ? and why are Aston prices as high as they are ?...............it is because they are highly prestigious, very well made and highly stylish vehicles that just ooze quality and exclusivety........................need I say any more ? and I won't even begin to mention the totty pulling qualities of an Aston convertible !!

Personally, I think the entire attraction is simply based on the fact that it is the ONE car that has never EVER been riced out.
