Introduced at the 2005 Geneva Salon, the V8 Vantage featured Aston Martin's advanced VH platform (bonded aluminium) architecture and a 4.3-litre 'quad-cam' dry-sump V8 developing some 380bhp and 302lbft. Available with a choice of manual or sportshift transmission, the newcomer was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds and 175mph. One of the new and hugely competent range of motorcars Aston Martin now offer.
With just two owners from new to this superb-looking car as well as a full Aston Martin dealer service history, this Aston Martin comes with the six-speed manual transmission, 19” seven-spoke alloy wheels and black brake calipers. Presented in Meteorite Silver with Iron Ore leather, it also benefits from a burgundy power hood with Tailors Grey headlining and a heated glass rear screen; it comes with satellite navigation, air-conditioning, Aston Martin alarm system, garage door opener, auto dim rear view mirror, bright finish grille, electric lumbar support, power-fold mirrors, upgraded premium sound system, memory heated seats, Xenon HID headlamps, three keys and two alarm remotes. In outstanding condition, the car is supplied with a V5 registration document and an MOT test certificate valid until June 2018. This is possibly the most cost effective Aston Martin Vantage Roadster on the market today.
