2008 Aston Martin Ratings, Reviews and Awards

2008 was a big year for the luxury brand, Aston Martin. The company started the year with new ownership after being sold to a group of private investors by Ford (but retaining management) and unveiled a brand-new replacement to the aging Vanquish, the DBS, based on the DB9. The DPS outputted a whopping 510 hp thanks to a 6.0, L V-12 engine and had a cameo in the James Bond Casino Royale film. Designed for day to track, the DB9 gets 11 city mpg and 17 highway mpg. Also new for 2008 was the V8 Vantage Roadster, a soft top convertible. The first to utilize Aston Martin's new transmission, a paddle-shift called Sportshift, the roadster mounts its six-speed, Italian-made manuals just ahead of the rear axle. The DB9, a coupe with 450 hp and a 6.0 L, V-12 engine gets a combined 13 mpg on its rear-wheel drive.
