REV TO THE LIMIT
Check out this great video of the new 991-generation Porsche 911 GT3 against the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, the fastest ever Aston.
The new 911 GT3 is simply one of the best sports cars money can buy. With its breadth of abilities, it’s more accessible than ever, yet it still offers the track-inspired technology and driver engagement it’s famous for. Few cars, at any price, can match its performance and handling.
Since its launch in 1999, the Porsche 911 GT3 has been the benchmark against which every other track-focused car has been rated. There are more powerful, more expensive 911s, but the GT3 represents the sports car at its purest and most intense. In fact, all four generations of GT3 arguably rank alongside 1973’s legendary 2.7 RS in the annals of greatest 911s.
As for the Aston Martin, this is the company at its best. They are producing cars that driving enthusiasts can really get excited about. We love its engine, its handling and its styling but can’t help being frustrated by the gearbox. To illustrate just how good the rest of the car is, though, you’ll find yourself forgiving the V12 S its quirks as soon as you find a twisty piece of tarmac.
We’ve already declared the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S the best Aston in the line-up off the back of a drive on the twisty, sun-soaked tarmac of Palm Springs but its big test will be this first drive in the UK.
