What's New for 2018?

For 2018, Aston Martin's flagship Vanquish line is reduced to just the S Coupe and S Volante convertible. A completely redesigned Vanquish is set to debut in 2019.

What We Like

One of the most beautiful cars on the market; impressive performance; beautiful interior

What We Don't

Rapid depreciation; incredibly expensive; highly impractical

Overview

As its flagship model, the 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish stands at the top of the famous luxury brand's range -- and that's a pretty good place to be. After all, Aston is known for its beautiful cars, impressive performance and unequaled desirability. And that makes the Vanquish the king of the hill, right?

Well, yes and no. To start, we have several good things to say about the Vanquish. We love its amazing 5.9-liter V12 engine, for example, which produces an exceptional 580 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. We also love the smooth and precise 8-speed automatic transmission, which improves the car's performance, allowing it a top speed just over 200 mph and a 0-to-60-mph run in under four seconds.

Then there's the Vanquish's styling, which is absolutely breathtaking from virtually any angle. Though we're among the many who consider Aston's designs to be far too similar, the Vanquish seems to take the brand's design language to a whole new level -- and we love it. The same goes for the coupe's interior, which offers high-quality controls and materials everywhere you touch. A recently updated infotainment system now offers improved technology for more-intuitive operation.

So what's not to like about the Vanquish? For one thing, its price. The exotic car starts at around $298,000 with shipping -- or around $17,000 more if you plan to get the soft-top Vanquish Volante convertible -- and that's before Aston's options, which are both plentiful and expensive. We're also a little leery of Aston depreciation, which can usually be pretty substantial. And then there's the practicality concern: Back seats are small and fuel economy is mediocre, so you might not want to drive it very often.

Still, the 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish is one of the most-beautiful cars around -- and for many drivers, that alone justifies its enormous price tag.
