Just stumbled across another one of those prohibitively expensive cars that no one can ever afford while they’re actually young enough to put it to any really good use…
What we have here, ladies and gentlemen, is the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, which will set you back about USD 200 K (that’s $200,000 to you and me.)
Of course, sometimes you actually NEED a car that can top 200 MPH . . . it’s amazing how swiftly a fresh-baked pizza can cool off on the way home!
Personally, I especially like the way the bumblebee yellow body color is tantalizingly slipped into the cabin door panels…
Here’s what David Undercoffer of the Los Angeles Times has to say (and you can scroll down to the link back to the article below,)
“It’s been a busy centennial year for Aston Martin, and the British automaker shows no signs of slowing down, announcing Tuesday the 2015 V12 Vantage S.
“The car, which Aston bills as its fastest on the market (save for the full-crazy One-77), will replace the outgoing V12 Vantage. The company said the car’s top speed is 205 mph.
“The Vantage line is the automaker’s smallest car and sportiest offering in the U.S., with V-8 models competing in the marketplace with Porsche’s 911. Its larger DB9 and Vanquish cars fall into the more relaxed grand touring category.

I know what I want for Father’s Day this year!… *sigh*
