2018 Aston Martin Vanquish vs. Its Competition

2018 Aston Martin Vanquish S
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The Aston Martin Vanquish may face competition within its own showroom from the much newer DB11 as Aston Martin revamps its lineup.

The DB11 is a more comfortable car with many more modern features, and at this point it’s a better value.

The Porsche 911 Turbo is another rival, and the Vanquish S costs about twice the price for less performance and nearly identical power.

The Vanquish S even competes against high-end exotics like the Lamborghini Aventador and Ferrari F12tdf.

Both cars offer far more technology and performance, though their pricing is also higher.

Quick Specs
7.6
Beauty, power, and capable handling come together in the 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish S to make it one of the most appealing grand touring cars on the market.
7.6
The 2018 Porsche 911 is a superlative sports car that has defied its age. It’s a classic, but performs better than nearly any newcomer to its arena.
7.4
Aston Martin has developed the DB11 as a true grand tourer, balancing comfort and handling in a beautiful package that would make a comfortable car for an escape to the cabin many hours away.
The 2017 Ferrari F12berlinetta brings V-12 heritage to the streets, while the F12tdf stakes its reputation on the track.
Violent, brash, and wholly desirable, the Lamborghini Aventador might be the ultimate genesis of the supercar.
