Review of the 2005 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish

  • On par with such segment standouts as the Ferrari 575M Maranello, the Vanquish offers an upscale English feel in addition to its blistering performance.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Performance and exclusivity of V12 power, high-performance threshold without a stiff ride, finely detailed interior, flies under the radar compared to a Ferrari.

  • Cons

    Not as fast as other similar exotics, a few cheap interior pieces, won't get the attention that a Ferrari will.

  • What's New for 2005

    No major changes for the Vanquish.

Vehicle: 2005 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish S 2dr Coupe (5.9L 12cyl 6A)

This car is as comfortable as a class S mercedes, as fun as a Ferrari 575, and much more reliable as most other cars. You can use it again and again. You will always be amused by the behavior of people when they see it. It is definItely the gentleman's supercar.
