Super-GT mega test: Aston Martin vs Ferrari vs Maserati


The DB12 is greater and wider and extra chiselled in its muscular options however no much less evocatively proportioned – good-looking, maybe, slightly than fairly. For the Granturismo, nevertheless, we appear to be in more durable territory.

Decrease-waisted and fewer aggressive than the DB12, positively, but additionally saddled with only a trace of visible awkwardness.

The Maserati is an even bigger automotive than both the Aston or the Ferrari, and that offers it some relative strengths (to which we’ll come), however, albeit narrowly, it misses their commonplace for outright design attract.


What the Maserati counters with could be very helpful in these wintry take a look at circumstances: part-time four-wheel drive.

The junior member of this GT trio by way of each energy and value, it provides six turbocharged cylinders as a substitute of eight. However on these roads, particularly when there are many bumps, cambers and puddles with which to contend, how you utilize what you’ve acquired may nicely show to be extra vital than the variety of horses you introduced alongside within the first place.

Aston’s new Mercedes-AMG-supplied twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 is of a distinct order of efficiency than the one which served hitherto within the DB11 (and certainly within the Vantage) and apparently provides the automotive a class-leading power-to-weight ratio – a declare that, in contrast with the Roma at the least, my back-of-the-envelope maths certainly confirms.
