It is believed one of the vehicles cut in front of the other before they both stopped on the chevrons on the Manadon flyover, over the Park Way, in the direction of Crownhill.
According to police, the male passenger of the Astra got out of the car and after a verbal altercation with the driver of the Vantage, head-butted the man.
The driver of the Aston Martin suffered swelling and cuts to his nose.
At this point, the female driver of the Astra, described as large and white, drove off in the direction of Crownhill leaving the offender to run off by foot, also in the direction of Crownhill.
The Astra's registration number is K585 RLU.
Police have described the offender as a white male, in his late teens with ginger hair that is short on the sides but with a longer fringe on the top. He is of thin build and was wearing a navy long sleeved top and dark trousers.
PC Pete Riley, investigating the assault, said: "This was an unprovoked incident that got a bit out of hand following a beep of the horn."
If you have information regarding the incident call the police on 101 quoting crime reference EL/12/4011.
