Price as Tested $250,000

Impeccable road manners; easy to drive even in everyday traffic; superb fit and finish with fine grade leather upholstery and plush wool carpets; comfortable seating and ergonomic controls; wickedly fast with a soul-inspiring exhaust note.


Huge cost; thick A-pillars obscure view while rounding fast corners; low-hanging bodywork will scrape most curbs and driveways; feels like a Jaguar XK8 when not pushed.


The Vanquish is fast, beautiful and comfortable, with none of the cantankerous attitude of some supercars. For those who are used to spending a quarter-million dollars for a car, buying a Vanquish is a no-brainer. The V12 barks an exhilarating tune at full throttle and the car will sprint from 0-100 kph in 5 seconds. As with all contemporary supercars, it won’t be a terrific long-term investment. But for the moment, a Vanquish represents a blend of high performance, haute couture automotive fashion, and a statement of the owner’s financial success.
