None of them. I would never use so much money on a car.
It's totally insane. I would use my money and buy a Chevy Trailblazer or a Ford Expedition.

The Jaguar is a bit too long in the tooth these days.

Definitely go for the Aston though. It's just beautiful. And by all accounts it's actually a good car too, unlike the DB7, which was stunningly beautiful but crap.

I like the XK Jaguar but the DB9 will get my vote on this one.

Out of those choices, it'd have to be the DB9.

Given my own choice, I'd arrive in a Rolls.

DB7s aren't that great.

We had one for a year and sold it and bought something else, inside it is rather cramped and it wasn't that well put together and it was based on the 30yr old Jaguar XJS. Though to be honest it was best just to look at. I've seen a review of the DB7 GT and heard it was fantastic but then we are quite happy now with our S500L....

The DB9 is in my opinion, absolutely the most beautiful car of this generation. There are some other fine looking automobiles, but none combine the presence, and sense of style of this new Aston Martin. I am really looking forward to the new Aston coming out next year that will compete with the Porsche 911. If the DB9 is anything to go by, it too will be stunning.

Superfly,

FYI, you have a typo on the Town Car photo listing. All Town Car models that have the 'L' suffix are the extended models with the wider rear doors. The model you have pictured is the standard length model.
