Aston Martin's Vantage is a modern high performance icon of unmistakable character, styled to seduce and engineered to thrill. In its day, it was always the most affordable supercar the British brand made, but many will tell you that it's arguably also the very best Aston from its era. There's a choice of either V8 or V12 power under the bonnet but either way, the performance is as sensational as the looks, either in Coupe form, or as a Roadster convertible. This was the first Aston Martin to directly take on Porsche and Maserati and it remains an emotional but very tempting choice.
Without the Vantage, it's doubtful whether Aston Martin would be the company that it is today. Since private ownership of the company kicked in after the Ford era, this has been the car that has kept the tills ringing at Gaydon - and for good reason. For us, it's the best thing the company made in the 2005 to 2017 period, the best to drive and the best looking, so it's nice that it's also the most affordable sportscar in the range too.
Of course, 'affordability' is a relative term when you're talking about a supercar of this exalted price. Especially one that's brilliant but flawed. The fiddly interior, the muscular handling and the high running costs won't after all, suit everybody. But those traits for us are also welcome. They make this car human. There is, after all, something soulless about the clinical perfection of a Porsche or a Mercedes that you just don't get here. And it's one of the reasons why you'll find any Vantage simply overflowing with the special feel you want in the sportscar you've dreamed of owning all your life. More exclusive than a Jaguar XK, more traditional in its layout than a Porsche 911, it's brilliant and it's British. Enough said.
