   The Aston Martin V12 Vanquish is a grand tourer, produced between 2001 and 2007. During it's production it was an Aston Martin's flagship vehicle.

   This car comes with a 6.0-liter V12 engine, developing 480 hp and will get you from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds. If it seems slow, go for an Aston Martin S version, which develops 520 hp and can reach 320 km/h. Both engines are powerful and have masses of pull at low revs.

   Aston Martin is not a real sports car despite of it's powerful engine. It is rather a luxury tourer. The Vanquish has a superbly comfortable and safe ride. Furthermore it handles really well, considering a size of this car. The S version's Astons are more sporty, because of suspension changes and sharper steering.

   The V12 engine noise is a kind of amazing sound you will like to hear. It disappear at the motorway speed, however some. and then you can hear some road and wind noise are present in Aston's cabin.

   There was a significant demand on this car because of  limited production numbers. This is why it keeps it's value so well. It will cost a fortune to buy, but if it's price don't put you off, large running costs and servicing certainly won't. What might spoil the pleasure of driving is a short range on a full tank.

   The Aston Martin Vanquish is well built and it's quality shouldn't disappoint anyone. Materials and fabrics inside the cabin are as brilliant as you expect, however there could be more oddment spaces around the driver.

   Behind the wheel it is easy to find a comfortable driving position drivers of all shapes and sizes. The seats are fully adjustable and superbly supportive, however the rear visibility isn't great.

   This car is comfortable only for two. Despite it is considered as a 2+2 coupe the rear accommodation is very cramped. If you purchase Aston with two seats only, you will get some extra storage space in the rear. The boot is rather small.

   Aston Martin is one of the most prestigious car in the world, so expect to find all the safety equipment and features. There are all-round airbags, stability control, powerful brakes, and other passive and active measures intended to avoid the accident or to reduce a risk of an injuries in case the accident has happened.

   The Vanquish comes with a reasonable amount of luxury goodies, but the list isn't as long as it should be. Some things, such as satellite navigation is not even offered on the optional list.

 

   Advantages: Very hi-tech super tourer, that has plenty of punch under the bonnet and looks fantastic.

   Disadvantages: Some interior details feel overlooked for a car with a such price tag.

   Also consider: Bentley Continental GT.
