2015 Aston Martin Vanquish vs. Its Competition

2015 Aston Martin Vanquish

While both are British, Jaguar's XKR-S and XKR-R are less expensive (and less exclusive), and offer much of the style and elegant grand touring appeal; both of the harder-core Jaguar models also offer more focused performance.

Porsche's 911 range spans a great deal of price categories, but at the top, the 911 Turbo S offer far greater performance and driver engagement than the Vanquish, though the top 911 does come up short in the exotic looks and hand-crafted interior departments.

Ferrari's F12 Berlinetta is, in most ways, even more "out there" than the Vanquish, trading classic good looks for futuristic styling--and packing a true brute of an engine.

Lamborghini's Aventador goes a step farther, well into mid-engined hypercar territory with its looks and speed, but lacks the refinement and elegance of the Aston Martin.
