2003 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish 2dr Coupe (5.9L 12cyl 6A)


Review

There's only one word to describe the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, and that is perfect. The Vanquish is a sleek stunning car that is like no other. It out does any other kind of car in its class. It is very fun and exiting to drive. Superb.

2003 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish 2dr Coupe (5.9L 12cyl 6A)


Review

Having always been a fan of Aston Martins, when I took shipment of my silver 6.0L Coupe, I was blown away by the fact that I could actually bring this beautifully sculpted car home. Its performance is great, power available all the time, and the perfectly weighted steering works excellently, and carves into the curves like a superbike. The 12-cylinder powerplant will offer Niagra-torque anytime anywhere. For a sports car, the rear vision and trunk space are also quite good. The interior is also luxurious and excellent. I have never purchased a new car before and I can see how great this modern machine is.


Best Features

The engine and performance is great. The brakes are pretty impressive as well, and all in all, this is one hell of a machine. Driving on a sporty road, the seats are comfortable and supportive


Worst Features

A conventional six-speed manual would be nice. During sporty driving, the auto leaves something to be desired. I also own a 1988 Porsche 911, 1967 Mustang, and a 1978 Ferrari,and my daily driver is a Chevy Camaro, all manuals, and I long for the hand-foot coordination they have.

Review

I just purchased this car back in September, and it is hands down the best card I've ever owned. It's got the speed, style, comfort, and class I need in a vehicle. Spendy -- yes -- but ever so worth every penny!


Best Features

Interior/exterior style, long list of satisfying features.


Worst Features

Gas mileage could be greatly improved

Review

When recently asked which of my cars I would keep if I had to pick just one, I immediatley responded: The Vanquish! This car has the elegance, grace and comfort of the Bentley Arnage; is for all practical purposes as fast as the Ferrari 360 (it feels much faster from 80 to 140 mph! than the 360!)Handling is more solid and direct than the 575 Maranello. The build quality is better than any Mercedes, and the car feels so solid yet nimble on the road! I have been a new Ferrari buyer/owner since 1982, and a Bentley/Rolls buyer/ owner since 1987. Now that I have experienced this car I don't think anything else will impress me. Get one if you can and enjoy!


Best Features

Paddle Shift System V-12 power and smooth acceleration Throaty exhaust note Flawless paint and body work Great leather interior


Worst Features

A slightly better detailed interior would be my only wish.
