    slow? theyre not that slow... and personally i love the look. but then again im not in the market for a $200K car so what the F do i know, lol. i guess i just think that when youre squabbling over 1/10's of seconds, a hand assembled car, and exclusivity means more to me. theres nothing wrong with a koenigsegg either

    my ZR-1 is more exclusive than an Aston. 3 of my neighbors have Astons.

    well there is a considerable differnce from a vantage/db9 to a DBS. i just really like them. like i said, im not in that market, nor have i ever been behind the wheel of a car like that, so im going solely on pictures and reviews

    well you seem to know what you want. let us know what you think of that ccx. ive seen some reviews on tv and they seem pretty amazing. 0–62 mph in 3.2 seconds, 0–124 mph in 9.8 seconds, top speed of 259 mph. whats the sticker on those things?

    well "sticker" is a very relative word in this case. I would prefer to keep financial matters on the private side though.

    i say it..because the ccx is in a WHOLE! other league then 99% of cars made.......could you not say with confidence that a mercedes benz will be comfortable...or that the zr1 is fast and most people would be very happy with it ?? without ever driving one...or that Anartica is cold..without ever being?? some things are just common knowledge. I do know that a AM will dont touch a CCX. Hand made is as common with high end performance as machine made is with economy performance.

    no i dont quite follow.. if you want to think aston martins are in the same class as CCXs be my guest...but you might as well think that a gt500 is in the same class or can even compare to a zr1 .

    i didnt say that, nor do i think it. but my point is that you are speaking on behalf of something you have never driven/seen, just something youve read about. to go back to your point about Antarctica, how could you possibly know what it feels like there if youve never been? so what im saying, is that just because youve read impressive things about the ccx, (which im not taking anything away from it) you really dont know what it feels like to drive it, so how could you possibly say he wont be disappointed?

    simply put...because the majority of car reviewers and enthusiasts agree with me.

    p.s anartica has snow and ice..it has never been completely thawed..and also because the hottest it gets in summer is -39 degrees..dont need to visit to know that is cold...just like i dont need to ride in a ccx to know its 1. fast...2. will please some one that bought a zr1..and 3. is in a very elitist class for a reason
