Our favorite grumpy Brit Jeremy Clarkson has reviewed the latest Aston Martin DB9. One of the problems many DB9 owners have had is that the battery can die if you don’t drive it for a few days. Clarkson borrows an Aston to try to test this, but gives in after three days, saying:

"I’m sorry, but having a DB9 on the drive and not driving it is a bit like having Keira Knightley in your bed and sleeping on the couch. If you’ve got even half a scrotum it’s not going to happen."

The next problem is picking between the DB9 with sports pack or a V8 Vantage. There’s one point in favor of the DB9:

"Inside, the DB9 wins as well, chiefly because, when you turn it on, you don’t get a message on the dash saying “Power. Beauty. Soul”. Every time that happens in my wife’s V8, I want to vomit."
