Featuring a bonded aluminium structure for strength and lightness, the V8 Vantage introduced Aston’s new automated/manual gearbox option, the Sportshift. This added electro-hydraulic control to the existing six-speed manual gearbox to offer improved shift times and replaced the conventional manual gear lever with push button controls and paddles on the steering wheel. The Vantage was an immediate success with some dealer estimated a three-year waiting list by the time the car was first shown. It would later go on to receive Jeremy Clarkson’s 2005 Best Sounding Car of the Year and now considered one of the best-looking cars of all time and become an undisputed modern classic with values rising over the last 12 months.
Supplied with just two previous owners and a full Aston Martin main agent and subsequent specialist service history, this desirable example is supplied with Onyx Black coachwork with a matching Obsidian Black leather interior, contrasting white stitching and a black mohair hood. The condition, when viewed, was excellent throughout and powered by the hugely flexible V8, 4.3 litre engine mated to a 'Sportshift' gearbox. It starts beautifully and, as you would expect, sounded just as good. Another item to note is that it comes equipped with a factory-fitted, fob-operated, exhaust gate button that opens the taps to free extra decibels when required. Just the thing as you approach a long stretch of mountain tunnel! In 2016, the car had a replacement clutch fitted and has covered just 6,000 entirely trouble-free miles since.
