Well, i started this thread after an experience today. My girlfriend's Dad is a very wealthy guy, and I was over at her house today. We were hanging out in her room, and her Dad yells for me to come to the garage because he "needs to talk to me". So, I go out there, and he's like "well, I want to show you that i'm not an old fart, so check this out". He points to his 2005 Aston Martin Vanquish S. He hands me the keys, and says "I bet you a million bucks you can't start it". So, I get in, put in the key, turn it, nothing. No clutch, but there is an engine start button. I press it, nothing. Car isn't in Neutral (it is the formula 1 tiptronic style), so I press the (-) shifter, and try to start it, nothing. He explains that I need to press both paddles, the car goes in neutral, I start it. Wow. So he asks me if I want to drive it. I couldn't (I COULD, but I was nervous, this is a $300,000+ dollar car), so he takes me for a test drive. Wow, fast, really really fast. We get back, he says "any time you want to drive it, let me know". I will be driving it soon, that car is AMAZING. i still can't get over it. I guess he owned the 2003, but it had problems, so he sold it, and bought the new 2005.
