Vanquish: Aston Martin nails it

The British performance brand's latest - and greatest - car is worth its admittedly hefty cost.

High value

Sometimes, with cars in this price range, it's all about exclusivity. And, yes, the Vanquish has that. If you buy one, you will rarely meet another like it on the road.

But, in many cases, the value proposition stops there. Often, there's little of substance -- beyond precious hand-built rarity -- that you can't get in cars costing much, much less. Not so with the Aston Martin Vanquish. With this car, you get everything that $280,000 ought to buy. Plus the satisfaction of knowing very few others share your good fortune.
