A superb automobile company. Ford has not "ruined" them in any way. However, Vanquishes are for poseurs who think spending thousands more for a car with a worse power-to-weight ratio than the DB9 and a horrid paddle-shifted manual is the good thing to do. Of course, your average 15-year-old doesn't know that. The DB9 can be had with a proper manual transmission or a smooth paddle-shifted/full-auto AUTOMATIC, weighs less, has the same 6.0-litre V12, costs less, and is objectively a purer GT than the Vanquish. Think about it, kids.
My roommate's old man might buy an Aston Martin DB9. Jesus god!
