2015 Aston Martin Vantage | new car review
Plenty of options
Limited standard features on lower models
The 2015 Aston Martin Vantage is a stunning car that looks fantastic in each of its body styles. The coupe is likely to be a more popular option in the UAE, on account of the heat, and there is really nothing to dislike.
Oh yes, it feels good inside too! The interior is comfortable and chunky in that typical British way and all the controls feel robust. There is a surprising amount of space inside, too, which is a testament to the design.
Every luxury feature that you can imagine is available in this Aston range, from glass ECU to automatic temperature control; it also comes with its own pen! The rear mid-mounted gearbox will help with the balance of the car when cornering at speed.
What’s on offer?
There are several versions of the Vantage on offer, which include: the V8 Vantage Coupe, V8 Coupe S, V8 Roadster, V8 Roadster S, V12 Coupe, V12 Roadster, V12 Vantage S, and the Vantage N430. The V8 engine is 4.8 litres, and in the coupe starts at around AED 600,000.
The Vantage is the quintessential British sports car, it has all you need with none of the fuss. The subtle styling and first-rate finishing means that it doesn’t stand out with the same flamboyance as its Italian rivals, but it doesn’t need to. It’s fantastic, if a little a pricey!
