2016 Aston Martin Vantage vs. Its Competition

2015 Aston Martin Vantage GT
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The Aston Martin Vantage doesn't pull away from the competition in raw performance—but in styling and exclusivity, it's a rarity.

The Maserati GranTurismo captures a similar sense of style and flair, filtered through an Italian perspective, as does the Ferrari California.

For technical near-perfection, more reasonable prices, and proven reliability, the Porsche 911 competes with the Vantage V8 models and the Porsche 911 Turbo is a V12 Vantage rival, dropping unreal acceleration figures and handling on its passengers.
