Which used Aston Martin Vantage sports should I buy?

Originally launched with a 4.3-litre V8 that was later replaced by a 4.7-litre unit, the range eventually incorporated the familiar Aston V12 engine in the Vantage S Roadster. All versions are quick and sound wonderful, although it’s the V8 that's the best all-rounder, even if it's the V12 that really feels super-swift.

You can choose between a six-speed manual gearbox and an automated manual that you control via steering wheel-mounted paddles. The former is very much the one to go for, because the automated manual is jerky to use.
