Presented here is a stunning and exceptionally low mileage V8 Vantage manual, with full Aston Martin service history.
Starting out life as a concept design in 2003, it took a further 3years of development with their engineers and designers before the two seater coupe was finally approved by Aston Martin and ready for the public. Aimed to revive the “Vantage” model nomenclature and as a competitor to the Porsche 911, the Aluminium body structure and smaller size made the Vantage over 150kg lighter than its bigger DB9 brother. This chassis was then combined with a front mid-mounted engine, to create an almost 50/50 weight distribution, making it the most focused and agile model of the Aston Martin range.
The V8 Vantage, as the name may suggest, comes fitted with a 4.3 litre V8 engine. Although this engine is based on one of Jaguar’s V8’s it has been through many hand-built adaptations, including a race-inspired dry-sump oil system and internal components, that ultimately make it unique to Aston Martin. This quad cam monster is easily the heart of the Vantage, providing the car with substantial performance and a noise that is somehow beautiful, menacing and very fitting of the car’s overall character.
With this particular example presented in a stylish Titanium Silver metallic paint, with a tasteful Obsidian Black full leather interior, the car is finished to the pristine standards you would expect from the luxury car maker. It is apparent that the utmost care has been taken to keep this vehicle looking as beautiful as Aston Martin had intended.
Another sign that points out this car is aimed at the driving enthusiast is the manual gearbox. In a world where Automatic and Electronic selection gearboxes are now so common, the increase in demand for a traditional manual shift has been dramatic. This feature, although simple, is one of the most important items on the vehicle’s specification for driving aficionados and will help keep residual values higher in years to come. Some other key points of the vehicle’s specification have been listed below:
- 4.3 V8 (380bhp & 302lbft)
- Dry sump oil system
- 6speed manual gearbox
- Limited slip differential
- 19” Alloy wheels
- Titanium Silver metallic paint
- Obsidian Black full leather interior
- Heated windscreen
- Navigation screen
- Electric seats inc. Lumbar
- Heated seats
- Electric mirrors
- Rear parking sensors
- 12v sockets
