For The Vanquish looks fabulous, has huge pace and the build quality is brilliant. The interior looks and feels very classy.
Against Somehow less exciting than an ultimate Aston Martin should be, or a Ferrari is. The gearchange is too cultured and the power delivery too measured. Also, the ride can get turbulent on poor roads.
Thanks mainly to electronics, the Vanquish is almost too good for its own good. Cultured and civilised it might be, but a Vanquish should be more extreme. A great car, but one to admire rather than love.

This is where we usually tell you which engine and trim combination is best to go for, but that’s not really the Aston Martin way. All Vanquish models have the same V12 engine, and there’s only one edition of the car.
That doesn’t mean there are no choices to be made, though. You have to decide whether you want the two-seat or four-seat version, and there’s a dizzying array of exotic optional extras to choose from. Indeed, most buyers will elevate the cost of their car by several thousand pounds, even though the Vanquish already comes pretty well equipped as standard.
