The Aston is a two-seater sports car, so it’s unreasonable to expect a lot from it in practicality terms, but it isn’t bad for a car of its type. People up to 6’ 6’’ should be perfectly comfortable in either of the front seats and there’s a decent amount of storage behind them for soft bags, clothes and shopping. Rather unusually, the Vantage doesn't have a glovebox, but Aston attempts to make up for it by including a branded umbrella on the underside of the boot lid.
The latest Aston Martin Vantage has some big boots to fill, as the previous version was Aston’s most successful model ever. On the face of it, this Vantage has everything it needs to surpass its predecessor and compete with current rivals such as the Porsche 911 Turbo, Mercedes-AMG GT , Audi R8 and Jaguar F-Type SVR.
By the way, if you re looking for an exciting TV spot of this car, Fifth Gear will let you down. Tiff loves every car so he s only going to tell you the good bits about it. If you want something that will keep your attention for more than five seconds, check out Top Gear s cover of it. Jeremy Clarkson tells the good, the bad, and everything in between.

When I really pushed it, the back end would wiggle a bit around the tightest curves x2519 you can start to xA5 slide on an under-steer, if you x2519 re not careful x2519 but the DB11 xA5 generally clings to the ground with a broad bear hug. Torque is directed to the rear wheels, which helps keep everything down. It all makes the DB11 Volante a big, beautiful car that is solid, stable, and fun to drive.
Previously, the creative and production teams within the Aston Martin design digital group studio were using separate design software.
Yet, there’s also plenty of hand-stitched leather and the option of glossy real wood finishes. However, the quality of some of the materials isn't up to the standards of Bentley or German rivals - especially some of the metal-effect finishes that look a little cheap, most notably on the door panels.
Like all Aston models, the DB11 is covered by a standard three-year, unlimited-mileage warranty, which can be extended by a further two years at extra cost. This extra guarantee can be upgraded to Plus, Premium or Classic level depending on your needs and budget. And, if you're lucky enough to get one of the first 1555 cars, it will have been hand inspected and signed by Aston President and CEO Andy Palmer.
At low revs the engine emits a purposeful growl, while working the unit hard results in Aston’s trademark howl. It’s not as loud as a Ferrari V12, but it’s noisy enough and packed with character. More importantly, it’s all-natural, as Aston’s engineers didn’t want to use sound generators that boost the noise by playing it through the stereo’s speakers.
