Sportscarhire’s Aston Martin Vantage is a top specification with the larger 4.7 V8, manual gearbox and optional factory Sports Pack, perfect for special events, weddings and fast A-road touring.
It’s a luxurious and comfortable environment to travel in for long distances, the award-winning interior design is shared across the Aston Martin range, with jewel-like instruments and swooping leather-clad design throughout. The Vantage is the more compact sports model of the Aston Martin range, compared to the larger DB9 and DBS. The Vantage was designed to compete with the 911 dynamically, which it does very well. The Aston Martin has an excellent chassis balance due to the ‘front mid-engined’ design with a rear-mounted gearbox for 50:50 weight distribution, which you can feel around corners in the way that the front turns sharply in direct response to your steering input, and the rear is also very responsive but safe with a limited-slip differential and traction control.
The Sports Pack suspension and lightweight wheel package adds further control than the slightly softer standard car, but mostly in roll-stiffness with only a little extra firmness over bumps. The V8 engine has a deep note at low speed and an exciting howl accelerating from mid to high revs, but is quiet and refined when cruising at motorway speeds, with just a little tyre noise from the large low-profile tyres.
Delivery isn’t provided, we focus on keeping our services and mileage affordable for you to collect the car and enjoy driving it home, or explore the great driving roads nearby in North Wales visiting tourist attractions and taking advantage of our package deals at Spa Hotels.
Hire rate includes 120 miles per day, and extra miles are available at £2.50 per mile. Minimum age 30. Comprehensive insurance and VAT is included. Weekend rate includes 2 days' mileage, collection from 2.00pm Friday return Monday 9.00am onwards, Sunday return is available for an extra £25. Your own bank holds a pre-authorised deposit of £3000 before hire, which will be released straight away by Sportscarhire when you return. Minor damage to the car would be charged only as necessary to cover the independent trade cost of repair, a copy receipt for the repair would be provided to you, and the balance promptly refunded. If the car has significant damage resulting in a full insurance claim we would retain your deposit to cover our insurance excess charge. The deposit can be reduced to £2000 by payment of a £100 collision damage waiver fee. Please have fun, but drive with care for other road users and for your car. A top-level tracking and data-logging system is hard-wired into each car. We do encourage customers to fully enjoy the cars, but not to abuse them.
