Jaguar World, Aston Martin DB7 Vantage vs Jaguar XKR, March 2013
‘Driving a DB7 Vantage briskly is like Captain Kirk asking Scotty for the USS Enterprise to reach warp nine… before settling down to peacefully read the Sunday Times. It accelerates so easily, so smoothly, so uneventfully that there’s very little drama. Even the engine note is fairly restrained; no high-pitched wail like you’d get from a Ferrari 456, just a deep but muted growl. It’s like hearing thunder far off in another county.’
