Top Gear - Aston Martin Vantage - beautiful ending.
I've just watched this week's top gear. It was, as usual, very entertaining, but there was a real treat at the end. Clarkson took the new Aston Martin Vantage out for a spin and in the process produced a great little film. I was left feeling just like Jeremy - sad. To me that car is the pinnacle of car design and things will never be the same again. There are faster cars, there are possibly more beautiful cars, there are cars that are more technically advanced, but the Aston is a work of art, power and technology combined - it's perfect.
The music is "An Ending (Ascent)"From the album 'Apollo-atmospheres and soundtracks' by Brian and Roger Eno and Daniel Lanois. (1983)
