Re: what is your favourite?

The Ferrari, any day. Theres a pretty good Top Gear segment on this issue. Clarkson said the Ferrari (with the GTC package) was the better, sportier car, but that he would rather own the Vanquish (pretty much because it is British).

I'm not won over by the styling of the Vanquish. Honestly I think the DB7 and the DB9 are both much better looking. I don't like how the headlights sit, I dont like the front bumper, and I think the back end looks a little odd. The Ferrari on the other hand is sharper, and virtually flawless. By no means do I think the Aston is an ugly car, I just think that it suits someone that is much older then I am, and I absolutely love the 575m. The Vanquish is more of a 50-60 year olds car, while the 575m is more of a 30-40 year olds car.

If someone was considering a Vanquish, I would tell them to get the DB9 instead.

Re: what is your favourite?

I personally prefer the Ferrari, but I still think the Aston looks way better. The bad points on the Aston are 1)Gearbox 2)Weight 3) Its not a Ferrari

Obviously ferrari 575m is better. But these three are not from my choice. I love Lamborghini Murcielago..... Amazing Cool and speedy car.

Actually in the question you've 2 choices, not 3. Between 575M Maranello and the Aston Martin vanquish S.
