13 Vantage Coupe

by Mark from Charlotte | June 27, 2013

You can feel the hand built quality in this car. I have owned a ton of 911's, they are very nice. But the Aston is really like a hand made tailored suit, it really is!

Vantage s

by oldfool from Ca. | April 8, 2013

I only have 1000 miles on the car so far but it has been fun. Get the convertable its worth the extra money. The 7 speed sport shift takes a little practice but is fun. I drove the new porsche but I am very happy I went with the Aston

Vantage - A fantastic Sportscar

by Studio_L from Los Angeles | October 2, 2012

It is hard to find a good and true review of Aston Martin, it is either clients complain about some breaks squeaking or leaving negative feedback for some car dealer in Southern California, just because they don't understand the cars or the brand. This is my second Aston, and the newer models are just long leap forward from the 06 and 07 models, coming from a Porsche 911 S base to an Aston Martin is a hard move, but after giving the Aston brand another chance i have truly started to love the car. It may not be perfect but is the qualities of the brand that is inherent in every Aston Martin. You can truly feel that these cars are hand-made, the engine and gear box are put together in a way that you can sense the evolutionary progress on these cars. You read car reviews from cars&Driver and Motortrend claiming that there is a power-loss on the sport-shift clutch. I can assure you that those folks are copywriters and have no glue about what they write. Even if you compare this to a Manuel clutch you can't even shift that quickly. Any model from 09 has a much better clutch that is much more responsive, the horsepower of the 420 engine also makes a huge difference very noticeable on the acceleration. The clutch still engages the driving experience and makes you still work with the car. It is a truly engaging driving experience. The stiffer suspension on the 09 models and up, are absolutely noticeable, I have not driven the sport-pack version, but I would be pretty sure it feels like driving 911 on S mode the whole time, which is a TAP to hard on the road. The Vantage performs fantastic on the highway, it is certainly a daily commuter car very suitable for daily city driving. The 08 and 07 models are a bit too soft on the road there is a big difference on the suspension starting on the 09 models. Some car review mentioned missing options, the base models come with everything you need. You do not need any rear-view camera, or some hard disc to store more songs. Hello, this is an Aston Martin Sports Car not some city car with lots of button. The only button you need is the up and down ships, the Lights on or off that is pretty much it. Nav you only use when you get lost. So if you have ever thought about Aston Martin I would certain recommend it. This is one of the only few sport car companies that is still small and nimble,we never know what will happen in the future once more models starts to roll out and things become more main stream. So please drive the Aston Martin hard, these are sports car meant to be driven not meant to be polished in the garage everyday, it does not do any good.
