  2. Ferrari 612 Scaglietti
     
  3. 612 easily.
     
  4. Definitely the 612 out of these.
     
  5. DB9 or 612.
    I gotta see the 612 in person before i make my final decision.
     
  6. DB9. no question.

    The looks of the 612 have grown on me since watching Top Gear tonight, but the interior of the DB9 (which lets face it is what I'd see most of if I owned one) is miles ahead of anything else in this comparo.
     
  7. Ferrari 612
     
  8. Aston by a mile.
     
  9. ...that Ferrari interior is just horrible...
     
  10. 612
    the db9 and 612 are both exquisite cars, and although the aston takes the interior looks by far (Astons are known for great attention to detail from what i hear) my heart belongs in Italy on this one, i just love the 612 all around.
     
  11. 1. 612
    2. DB9
    3. M6
    4. Conti GT
    5. CL600

    The 612 is the most capable car here, although I am just judging the M6 by specs since no one has driven it yet. So, ignoring the Bimmer, the 612 outaccelerates and outhandles the rest while competing well in interior space. The Aston is the best-looking of the bunch, but the 612 has grown on me and lands a close second in that department. So, all in all, the Scaglietti is the most well-rounded. The Continental GT and CL600 are both phenomenal cars, but arn't quite sporting enough for my tastes when the term GT comes to mind. The Aston is totall sweet in terms of design, both exterior and interior, and has a great motor. However, it can't match the po' or thrills of the Ferrari or probly the Bimmer.
     
  12. the db9 is just too damn sexy
