New v used: BMW M2 v Aston Martin V8 Vantage - iNews
It is more fluid, more of the time, whereas the BMW can get choppy and skittish a little too often. But at this price, the overall ability of BMW’s amazing M2 would still ultimately be where our money went. Alongside it, the BMW doesn’t sound as good, with its engine enveloped by a turbo whoosh, although its far broader spread of power gives genuinely brutal acceleration at 7000rpm. You sit higher in the BMW, but the sculpted seats are firm and supportive, give a better view out and sit you in a more natural driving position. They are both as fast as one another in the 0-60mph dash, but the BMW feels the quicker of the two, helped by its fast-shifting M DCT automatic gearbox. The surge above 4500rpm sounds metallic, crisp and glorious, and if you work it hard, the Vantage is a total joy. There’s more wind noise in the Aston when cruising as well, again a consequence of its age. It does ride better in town, mind, absorbing potholes the older Aston can shimmer over. One of the most rewarding modern-era models is the V8 Vantage – and keen classifieds spotters will have noted prices of these are down to below the £30,000 mark. But equally surprisingly, the Aston has the wider repertoire over varying road surfaces. No such complaints with the Aston, which has wonderful steering, even with the odd trace of kickback. You could say this is all part of its charm – appeal that includes its sheer character and that lusty non-turbo V8, wrapped up in a stylish, luxurious and headturning classic Aston shape. Behind them are the two (small) adult-sized lacking in the Aston, while the boot is around a third larger and much more practically-shaped. No two ways about it, the Aston is the beauty of the two, both outside and in. The cabin is a hand-crafted haven of leather, Alcantara and real metal, in which you sit low, feeling like you’re within a bona fide supercar. Start the Aston’s wonderful V8 engine for the real reason: it sounds gorgeous, with a rich burble and a short-throw gearshift equal of a muscle car. Because you could also spend around £45,000 on one of the best modern-day driver’s cars of all – the best M car BMW makes, no less. The M2 shares even more with a cut-price alternative, this time the £21k BMW 118i. But a decade’s progress, combined with BMW premium quality, means that although it’s sobre and less emotional, it’s also much more precise-feeling and laden with... Yes, the 365bhp BMW M2 is exceptional… but good enough to beat an Aston Martin. Yes, you can get a used Aston Martin for £45k. But you’d get a better all-round performance car if you spent it on a new BMW M2 instead. Even the preferable 420bhp 4. 7-litre, which replaced this original 380bhp 4. 3-litre V8, can be bought for around £45,000. That’s a huge saving on the original list price – for, dammit, an Aston Martin. You have £45k. Which is best – a used Aston Martin or a new BMW M2. Everyone dreams of owning an Aston Martin.

BMW M2 vs Used Aston Martin V8 Vantage - BMWBLOG (blog)
The leather is rich, the trim is real metal and the quality feels expensive. It also has a rich feeling interior, a sonorous V8 and old-school hydraulic steering. However, you can also tell that this car’s Ford roots shine through a bit, with a terrible infotainment system and some suspect ergonomic bits. The M2 is a great car but the Vantage is an instant classic. Though, it never feels anywhere near as premium as the Aston. However, the Aston is the purer experience, with a far more communicative hydraulic steering rack and a better overall ride. In the end, Autocar picked the M2 over the Aston, for its sharper responses, better built cabin and far superior technology. In this test, the Aston had a six-speed manual while the M2 had a DCT, but both can be equipped with manuals. However, it really would be hard not to choose the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Sit in the Aston Martin and you’re immediately aware that this car was a six-figure sports car back in 2011 and was hand assembled. Source: www.bmwblog.com
