What's the used Aston Martin Vantage like?
It might only be the baby of the range, but the Aston Martin Vantage lost its milk teeth a long time ago – it's more than appealing enough to bite chunks out of its main rival, the Porsche 911.
Thanks to an almost even front-to-rear weight distribution and the use of lightweight materials in its construction, the V8 Vantage is a fine-handling machine. It's stable at high speed on the motorway as well as being responsive and agile on twisty roads.
It's a fine everyday car, too, thanks to the easy-to-live-with nature of its V8 engine. However, when you want it to go fast, it's capable of setting a blistering pace.
The interior feels beautifully finished; the only downside is very poor side vision when pulling out of junctions. Practicality is reasonable with space for two golf bags in the boot.
