Aston Vs. Jag: A British Sports Car Civil War

A comparison as grand as this was bound to happen at some point.

Aston Martin and Jaguar are two of the greatest names in British sports car and motorsport history. Despite their ups and downs over the years, the pair is now entering a new golden era. And two of the best examples of this are the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S and the Jaguar XKR-S GT. Both are based on aging models, but before their retirement there's still plenty of fight left in them.

Both boast carbon ceramic brakes, adjustable dampers and even Pirelli P Zero Corsas tires. Motor Trend has managed to snag both cars for a head-to-head comparison. Like any good comparison, there can be only one winner. There are no points for second place.
