1. 2013 Aston Martin V12 Vantage Carbon Black
Remember the opening scene of the 2008 spy-flick Quantum of Solace, where British secret agent James Bond criss-crossed through Italian mountain roads evading bad guys with big guns, while cooly trashing a beautiful Aston Martin? Of course you do.
That was me. Or rather, that’s how awesome I’d feel behind the wheel of this car.
While Daniel Craig drove a DBS, my ideal Aston is the very same V12 engine, but in the smaller Vantage model. Loaded with carbon black metallic paint, carbon-fiber extras, Obsidian black leather and more I couldn’t bring myself to trash it, for the love of Queen or Country.
