Americans have long dreamed of the day when Aston Martin would begin to send over their beautiful super cars over to local shores. But for so long, the closest most Americans have come to seeing an Aston Martin is on those flimsy James Bond movies.

Well, according to our friends at Car and Driver, that may not hold true for very long.

Dr. Ulrich Bez, Aston Martin’s CEO, announced that Aston Martin will be coming to the US with no less than the Aston Martin V12 Vantage spearheading the excursion across the Atlantic.

If you recall, Aston Martin initially scoffed at plans of bringing the DB9, mainly because it feared that the ultra-fast – and ultra-expensive – super car would not be able to make enough sales to make it worth the trouble. But now that the auto industry has began to pick up again, Aston Martin decided to do an about-face, which is fantastic news for us super-car-loving Americans.

While there’s still no timetable as to when the Vantage would make its way to America, hearing it from the horse’s mouth that it’s is coming should be enough reason for us to thank the high heavens for answering our prayers.
