So someone very close to me just got one of these. If you're not a car person, it's the Aston Martin DB 9 Volante. And it is the most incredible car I have ever seen.
She was kind enough to let me drive it and well...it accelerates so fast that I bruised the back of my head on the head rest. Seriously. And simply put, the car sounds sexy. When you hear the engine roar there isn't any other word but sexy.
But, I do know another person, also very close to me, with one of these. If it looks familiar you most likely watched Miami Vice. And you can see Sonny Crocket in his white suit and turquoise shirt leaning against it.
I haven't driven this one, but I will, soon.
If you grew up in the eighties you knew this car and you wanted this car. If you had a poster of a car on your wall, this was it. The Ferrari Testarossa will forever hold a place in my heart. It was THE car of its day.
So I guess the DB 9 is the coolest car I have ever driven but the Ferrari Testarossa will always be special. And I still want one.
