While auctions, car shows and parties are a huge part of the Monterey Car Week, exclusive ride and drives are where automakers are able to share current and future cars with media. This year I was granted access to the very exclusive Aston Martin Estate in Monterey, CA.

Future and current models and even a few concepts were displayed across the stunning mansion. While I would have driven every car on the lot, each person had to choose one vehicle to experience. After much debate, I chose the Vanquish Volante, a stunning convertible V12 Aston with such fine detail and an incredibly angry exhaust note.

Enjoy the short drive video review below as well as a few photos from around the estate.
