Considering I am a "spy" I guess you would find it a bit too predictable for me to adore Aston Martins. Well, here's the curveball: I actually never was a huge fan.

Besides the vintage DB5 and "the last hurrah" DB7 GT, the cars never spoke to me. To 00R it seemed like a cross between a Bentley and a Jaguar XK, which was not exactly my taste.

But recently, the legendary marque flipped everything on its head. It introduced the V12 Vantage to the U.S. market.

Fitted with a 6.0-liter V12 powerplant, what is there not to like? It sounds like an absolute monster.

Then, an AutoSpies user sent in some photographs from a recent ride and drive event to promote the V12 Vantage's North American debut, and I had a watershed moment. It all became too clear.

The new Vantage is the best looking Aston, ever.

I remember the first time I saw the V8 Vantage cruising along a stretch of road in Staten Island. I remember eye'ing up every single line the car had and thinking this is what perfection looks like. Although you can argue that an Alfa Romeo 8C looks perfect from every angle, I am going with the V12 Vantage on this one.

What say you, Spies? Is there a better looking Aston out there? Are you diggin' the new V12 Vantage or would you rather have something else?
