TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S raps an exotic soundtrack, and delivers unsubtle performance in a gentlemanly way. The 2016 Maserati GranTurismo puts a gorgeous wrapper on Ferrari-inspired performance, to stunning effect. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class offers relaxed luxury and willing power, but delivers nimble moves when called upon.
