Carbuzz always lags behind when it comes to car news
Jordan Smith Feb 16, 2013
I've seen it already. I was just hoping for an article for it today.
Jordan Smith Feb 16, 2013
Carbuzz! Where's the article for the new Chevy SS? It was revealed today.
Description: Hailing from the UK and Germany, each car appeals to different personalities, but both look like they're ridiculously fun to drive. Motor Trend's Jonny Lieberman seems more than happy to ind...

@Ahmed The Vanquish is faster
Ahmed Al Harthy Feb 18, 2013
I don't understand how come the new vanquish is actually slower than the DB9.. that's a big disappointment
Zachary Sindelar Feb 17, 2013
Aston in the Baby Blue color that was on Top Gear, Yep! That would be my Aston! I did like the Viper most though, that Viper growl just un-beatable.
Ashton Summers Feb 16, 2013
@Jacob. Tyler was referring to one of my peeps.
Jacob Burford Feb 16, 2013
@Tyler What's an Ashton Fan!
Jacob Burford Feb 16, 2013
I like the Merc, but the Aston has that desire factor that the CL doesn't have! Everything from the looks to the sound!
Evans Head Feb 16, 2013
When they test the Aston's 60-0 stopping distance, it says "0-60 mph braking distance". What?? Nice typo
Tyler Wallace Feb 16, 2013
This is just a true case of Benz fan vs Ashton fan
Tyler Wallace Feb 16, 2013
It's not fair ? Ashton chooses to put big v12 in there car with to little HP that's there fault
Zaire Wilkins Feb 16, 2013
I dont think this is fair. Cause the merc has 721 torque and 621hp
Stephen Reed Warren II Feb 16, 2013
@ashton. The CL starts at over $115k for the 550 and w.needed options you're not getting a new one for less than about $130k.
Tyler Wallace Feb 16, 2013
Well that cl has been my favorite coupe since 2003 wen the amg produced 700 torque 😍
Ashton Summers Feb 16, 2013
The biggest difference between the two, is the Aston starts at $200k and the CL starts at about $100k for the 550.
Ben Knorr Feb 16, 2013
just listen to that Aston! DB9 for me as well. it's sexy, fast, and just sounds glorious.
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 16, 2013
Well i feel the new db9 has left a large gap in astons line up we no longer have a big fat highway cruiser instead just a dbs with db9 badge its to sporty to succeed the last db9
Carlos Dorantes Feb 16, 2013
DB9. All the way!! What is he thinking??
Tin Nguyen Feb 16, 2013
The 65amg is a torque monster. I would still take the Aston cuz it's more of a gentleman car.
David Markham Feb 16, 2013
Yeah if I had 200 grand to spend, it wouldn't be on a Benz. Aston gets it for me, for class & so few of them on the road.
Pablo Herasme Feb 16, 2013
Me personally I would take the Aston for the looks and sounds, but no means is the Mercedes a bad car. If I could own both I would
Chris Benson Feb 16, 2013
Sir. SIR. you're watch. Please kill it with fire. Db9 all day long.
Ben August Feb 17, 2013
"Better" is subjective, and analogous to individual utility. Even if the MB could out corner, out accelerate, and out play a Yamaha M1, I would still take the Aston. It's an Aston- it creates awe within, it's timeless, silly smooth, perfect.
Ryan Faber Feb 17, 2013
I would rather have one of these as a dd and a different aston for the weekends
Hay Dayz Feb 16, 2013
Agree with Pablo, $200,000 price tag... You take it off the lot, and you can't get more than $100,000 for it. Doesn't make sense.
Zaire Wilkins Feb 16, 2013
Damn lots of grip. Looks like the lip of the rim wants to kiss the pavement
Zalmy Ny Feb 16, 2013
So classy
Stephen Reed Warren II Feb 16, 2013
1) Extremely luxurious interior 2) huge torque 3) huge hp 4) Beautiful 5) it's a mercedes AMG
Mustafa Alshekhly Feb 16, 2013
I just want 1 reasonable reason for this car to be expensive
Demid Petrov Feb 16, 2013
To me better than db9. More powerful Looks as good as aston (my opinion) Same level of quality and comfort inside if not more. Exhaust sound better due to biturbo!
Pablo Herasme Feb 16, 2013
Its beautiful but looks din't match its $200,000 tag
Esam Mohammad Feb 16, 2013
This car is just gorgeous
Jacob Burford Feb 16, 2013
Gorgeous!
Zalmy Ny Feb 16, 2013
Sexy and flawless. As alwars
Nathan Lo Feb 16, 2013
Sexy
Justin Stone Feb 16, 2013
It is a 2013...
Walker Carroll Feb 16, 2013
If Someone told me that was a 2013 model, I would believe them
Pablo Herasme Feb 16, 2013
Those looks will be around for a while
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 16, 2013
Yeah those looks just dont age at all
Ryan Faber Feb 17, 2013
how could the cl be any nicer?
Zalmy Ny Feb 16, 2013
Nicer than the car itself. Lol
Ryan Faber Feb 17, 2013
I know... it sucks where the car industry is going for us gear heads
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 16, 2013
Mmm sad that there on the way out
Tesha Ellis Apr 12, 2014
Wow Jeff so ur executive office has a steering wheel in it???
Jacob Burford May 26, 2013
Beautiful inside and out!
Janak Solanki Feb 16, 2013
Wow. Superb quality
Jeff Link Feb 16, 2013
It's so refined. Reminds me of a really nice executive office.
Justin Stone Feb 16, 2013
It's not from Volvo anymore.
Jacob Lerklint Feb 16, 2013
Yeah, the navi screen is from Volvo so good they kept it down
Adam Beiersdorfer Feb 16, 2013
I'm glad they kept the navi screen down... One of the only let downs I had with the Aston...
Jacob Burford May 26, 2013
Weird wood trim
Ryan Faber Feb 17, 2013
what did AssRoar say? lol sorry I just wanted to spell your name like that... but seriously, what??? the 65 needs to have piano black and aluminum interior. leave the wood back in the 550 model.
Chris Friend Feb 17, 2013
@Edmond its an option.
Edmond Gebara Feb 17, 2013
I'm from the US, but I must admit, we love tacky, cheap looking wood.. Can't we throw in some dark burlnut, or some dark grey / black wood?
Alex Smith Feb 17, 2013
That's VERY high quality leather
Taylor Garry Feb 17, 2013
Maybe itd be fine if the wood didnt look the exact same as the fake wood in any other normal car
Zalmy Ny Feb 16, 2013
Somehow I like the interior over the Aston (maybe because I love wood so much)
Janak Solanki Feb 16, 2013
Interesting color combo. I like it
Zaire Wilkins Feb 16, 2013
Wow some of you are blind. Do you see that wood this is what you pay for
Mohamed Alhasan Feb 16, 2013
If I am paying 200,000 for a car I would expect more things done to the interior
Nicholas Morissette Feb 16, 2013
I'd get a V12 Vantage. Same price, more power, less weight, stick shift option. 'Nuff said.
Mustafa Alshekhly Feb 16, 2013
This doesnt seem very luxurious
Shaun Conroy Feb 16, 2013
Remember that this interior was designed for an 05-06 car.
Asror Zafarzoda Feb 16, 2013
Mercedes the famous car the world becouse very super car
Chris Bullock Feb 16, 2013
What the heck are you guys talking about, this is gorgeous!
Pablo Herasme Feb 16, 2013
This looks nice to me
Chris Benson Feb 16, 2013
I just do not care for wood interiors, or pleats. Just me. I like nice piano black, and a little brushed aluminum.
Nick Schnee Feb 16, 2013
The centre console looks kinda weird to me...
