Well yes they’ve had some past horror shows. I thought the F type was supposed to be reliable though?

Nah, GM went mid engine with the C8 for marketing and EV purposes.

I had a 2010 510HP Jaguar XFR that was super reliable and a pleasure to drive. But after 2014 Jaguar Land Rover went downhill fast.

Ok. Astons are pretty reliable cars. Less engine problems than Porsche anyway. Just don’t let the battery go flat otherwise you will get strange messages. But that’s the same for a lot of cars these days.

I would take your car, all day, every day, over the 2025. Proportions look all wrong, yours just looks mean. I seriously considered one but I needed a 2+2.

I wonder if it will really sound as good as it does in the first video?

the prior model didn't sound that good:

Aston is certainly moving its way up on the infotainment. This is a luxury gt car and if that's what you are looking for, it is a worthwhile consideration. The depreciation curve is steep though

325 rears on 21" wheels. That's a serious footprint. An AWD platform to put down all that power/torque would add weight but i'd have to believe it would be sub 3 in the 60 and more stable.

Great looking car. Priced in base 992 turbo range.

And THAT car my friend, is exactly whose customers Aston wants.
