A test drive at Sill-Terhar Motors showcases a vehicle fit for James Bond.

When it comes to class and elegance in an automobile — let’s be honest — it is rare in today’s world. However, one cannot just throw their hands in the air and lose hope. There is one manufacturer that still holds true to its name. One could say a few famous characters have been affiliated with this brand, one in particular, goes by the name 007. If you guessed Aston Martin, then I owe you a drink, shaken not stirred. Having been in the automobile game for over 106 years, this British-based manufacturer has stood the test of time in the sports car world. Our choice of ride for this months car review is the all-new Aston Martin Vantage.

Having particularly striking features, not just in the form of utterly sexy body lines, but attention to detail from an interior aesthetic is what the Vantage has. The interior features everything one would want in an exotic car. The red trim, in particular, looked quite tasteful on supremely athletic car. Especially paired with the white on carbon paint. Sometimes the small things, such as the fine stitching of leather trim and the perfect exhaust note of an engine, is what sets a sports car apart from the rest. This car does not disappoint, boasting a 505hp twin turbo v8. If you’re concerned what color options they offer, don’t be, because the only thing you should be worried about is keeping the points on your driver’s license after getting behind the wheel. This car makes a classy statement with a twist of devilish behavior. The driving characteristics were as I expected, simply beautiful. It handled light to the touch, yet managed the power in the form of perfection. Did I mention the exhaust note? It is music, pure music; this motor emits a symphony of joy as it takes you to your destination.

One would ask, is an Aston Martin fit for me?

Here are some words I will forever live by, “life is too short to drive boring cars.”

Take that and consider one of the greatest sports car companies just came out with another truly mesmerizing automobile, well-done Aston Martin. I applaud you.
