This was the most powerful car you could buy new in 1998


The famous supercars of the '90s like the McLaren F1 and Jaguar XJ220 always get the limelight, but this Aston Martin was once top of the new-car power tree back in 1998. The Aston Martin Vantage V600 is a twin-supercharged brute that deserves its place in '90s supercar royalty.

    In 98 I was approaching my last year of school and I remember seeing Clarkson driving it on old top gear and then on one of his Videos that car is a Le Mans and I believe there was 2 for sale on Auto Trader for around 450-500k. A very rare beast indeed only 44 produced and it’s the last of the truly hand built Aston Martins after this car they were building them on production lines

    I was also 4 in 1998, but I remember it vividly. I spent most of 1998 and 1999 playing Gran Turismo on my dad's playstation. Subarus were my favourite. Not sure why, maybe because they were blue, but I still want an original impreza like that. My interest in cars had already solidified, I could identify most of them by the time I started school. Some of the first words I could read were automotive terms...

    My absolute favorite 90s car isn't even a car. Its a 92 Gmc Syclone pickup truck with the Awd, Turbo 4.3 v6. For cars I have to go with a 99 Pontiac Trans am Ws6 with the 6 speed manual. 99 Corvette fixed roof coupe. I also love the Jdm legends of the 90s like the Skyline, Supra, nissan 300zx and the 240, 3000Gt, and Eclipse GSX And for the obscure pick I would have to say the 99 Shelby Series 1 was a seriously cool car also.
