Vantage's driver clearly enjoyed his time behind the wheel 'From the big, comfy but still supportive drivers seat there's another stunning view over a small acreage of bonnet, and when you turn the key there is an instant aura of big, lazy power and a classic slightly offbeat V8 note that can go from burble to blare from Maidstone to Mulsanne. It's actually a pussycat to drive. The clutch is easy, the gearshift long of throw but positive enough. First is on a dogleg, away and back, but that works well, because once you are on the move you are never going to need it again. In fact on these B-roads third is all you really need, from 20mph to as fast as you dare.
