Are super cars coming to an ending? The Aston Martin V12 Vantage

I just watched the last episode of Top Gear series 13. One of the cars driven by Jeremy Clarkson was the Aston Martin V12 Vantage. And he explained ... barely nothing about the car. He just drove it for 3 minutes or so, showing exciting roads, impressive landscapes and let us hear the more than amazing sound of the V12. He though made one point when he asked whether we are coming to an "ending" with this car and its peers. Even the new Ferrari 458 is said to be less noisy and more environmentally acceptable than its predecessor. While this is good so, of course, we probably will look back to the crazy 200x years soon and say, what cars the manufacturers were able to build before they had to switch to electrical and noiseless practical cars. If you get the opportunity to drive a car such as the rear wheel drive Lamborghini Gallardo or the Aston Martin V12 Vantage, then do it as this probably will create a memory you won't want to forget.
