What alternatives should I consider to a used Aston Martin Vantage coupe?

The Jaguar F-Type came along and took the car world by storm. It was so gorgeous to look at and so loud in its exhaust that it's always been a difficult car to ignore. Not only does it sound great, it's fantastically quick, especially in 5.0 V8 SVR mode. It undercuts the Aston on price, too, both new and used.

The Porsche 911 is an iconic sports car. It's seriously rapid and grippy, yet it's also refined and can even be comfortable. It generates lots of noise, not all of it welcome, but it's a terrific driving experience. There are plenty to choose from, and hundreds of different models, all fast and fun and surprisingly frugal.

Verdict

The Aston Martin Vantage is almost as good to drive as the Porsche 911, but far more exclusive

  • The Vantage offers strong performance, superb handling and stunning looks to match
  • It's immensely thirsty, there are no curtain airbags and side visibility is poor
