What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For A fantastic-looking supercar with stacks of performance and a chassis to match

Against It's not very practical, it gulps fuel and has a very short range between refills

Verdict An uncompromising, high-maintenance, high-tech, high-performance super-tourer

Go for… V12

Avoid… V12S

Aston Martin Vanquish Coupe
  • 1. The clutch could be a weak point, so check the gearchanges are smooth
  • 2. Look out for any juddering in first or reverse gears as you ease the car into tight spaces
  • 3. Both models use the same reliable paddle-shift gearbox
  • 4. Rear seats are barely adequate for children, even on short journeys
  • 5. The V12 engine is reliable but needs careful maintenance
