The Aston Martin V8 Vantage is a formidable rival of the Porsche 911. The V8 Vantage is smaller and cheaper than the Aston Martin DB9 but don’t try to look down on this beast because the Vantage has a monstrous power under the hood. It’s a 4.7 liter V8 engine that can produce 420 bhp which can be paired to a six speed manual or a six speed automatic transmission. The car never fails to give power when you need it. The V8 Vantage also has a firm steering wheel and it’s very responsive, it gives more feel to driver-car interaction.
The Vantage’s interior makes you feel it’s handcrafted with excellence. It has a detailed leather designed interior with exquisitely designed knobs and buttons which are actually placed where you exactly need them. The V8 Vantage gives you a feel of delight and elegance which you can not feel on a Porsche 911- it’s sportier in nature.
Critics say that the V8 Vantage can’t out perform a Porsche 911. The V8 Vantage though has the edge of being an eye-catcher and being more graceful than the Porsche ands sometimes that is all that it takes to fall in love with an Aston Martin.
