    It also has a robotised gear box like Formula 1 racing cars. You push buttons to move up through the gears and back down again. Aston Martin Vantage Roadster; just saying the words makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up and your knees go weak.

    A big truck showed up at my house and the Vantage was disgorged. This was a manual version with a six-speed gearbox, and a 4. My first drive, in the rain with the hood in place, was impressive enough.
