Unveiled at the 2001 Geneva Motor Show, the Ian Callum designed Vanquish was an instant sales success and its choice of transport for James Bond only added to the appeal. Every car enthusiast throughout the world wanted the successor to the Virage. The 6.0 litre, V12 produced engine pushed out 450bhp, mated to a 'flappy paddle' electro-hydraulic manual gearbox, fly by wire throttle and, of course, looks to die for! It was no surprise that the car was the top of the Aston Martin range throughout its seven years of production. The Aston Martin legend as the ultimate British sports car was set to continue.
Stunning in its original colour scheme of Skye Silver with a Charcoal and Ivory leather interior and covering just 27,000 miles from new, this brooding example is presented with a main dealer service history from JCT600. It has only three former keepers recorded and was first registered on 29th April 2002. There are ten service stamps in the service book, almost all from JCT600. This Vanquish has been maintained to the highest standard as part of a large private collection and remains in superb condition as it has been in storage for a number of years in a heated environment and used sparingly. Supplied with its original aluminium-bound owners-pack, service books, current MoT certificate and dynamic handling pack, the car is reported to drive beautifully and we welcome any inspection of this vehicle. Already starting to appreciate, the Vanquish is tipped as a long term investment classic by all knowledgeable professionals.
Interested parties should note that this registration number is to be retained and an age related one issued instead.
