2016 Aston Martin Vanquish vs. Its Competition

2016 Aston Martin Vanquish
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

While both are British, Jaguar's F-Type R is less expensive and less exclusive.

It offers much of the style and elegance, but the Jaguar is a more focused sports car.

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.

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.
