- Just four former owners from new
Introduced at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show, 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 four former owners from new this superb-looking example comes with the six-speed manual transmission, and 19” seven-spoke alloy wheels. Presented in metallic black with a contrasting leather interior, it also benefits from a black power hood and comes complete with satellite navigation, air-conditioning, Aston Martin alarm system, auto dim rear view mirror, bright finish grille and Xenon HID headlamps. In good condition throughout, the Aston is supplied with a V5C registration document, many old MoT records, sundry invoices, Aston Martin books, and a MoT test certificate valid until July 2022. Arguably the prettiest of modern-day Aston Martins, the V8 Vantage model looks fantastic and is even more impressive to drive.
Interested parties should note that contrary to the catalogue description this example has an automatic gearbox and is not a six-speed manual.
