Price, fuel economy, range and depreciation

Aston Martin has judged the pricing of this car well. Although the model name might suggest otherwise, it isn’t a limited-numbers special edition, so it probably won’t be as collectable as some rivals, won’t have stellar residual values, and therefore would have struggled to sustain a bigger premium. As it is, £15,000 to £20,000 more than a like-for-like-equipped Vantage seems reasonable.

If you’re in the market for an extra-special super-sports car, nothing makes quite as much pecuniary sense right now as the near-depreciation-proof 911 GT3.

F1 Edition’s residuals aren’t expected to rival phenomenal 911 GT3’s but should be no worse than other exotic rivals’

However, by Aston’s own standards, this Vantage’s prospects aren’t as eye-watering as some. Our testing suggests you could also see better than 30mpg on a long, fairly unhurried touring run, allowing you to put nearly 500 miles between fills of its 73-litre fuel tank.
