Introduction

Paul Wright
Professional Consigner

One of the best selling Aston Martins of all time - the Vantage just keeps getting better and better.

Exclusivity and devastating performance have traditionally been Aston Martin's attributes, but with the brand’s shift into the modern age, the Vantage also brought in a whole new set of dimensions to further the appeal. As a result, it became one of the best selling Aston Martins of all time. Originally unveiled as a concept car in 2003, the car attracted plenty of positive feedback, which led to the release of the Vantage in 2005. The elegant-styled aluminium bonded front-mid mounted GT sports car, was sold with both V8 and V12 options. Accolades soon followed, which eventually resulted in further evolutions and development of the car.

Aston Martin produced 24 variants of the Vantage, one of which was the Vantage V8 Roadster, the one we have here. At £91,000, which is over £8,000 more than the coupe, you could get your hands on Aston Martin’s latest roadster. To compensate for the lack of a roof, Aston increased the rigidity of the body with a super-stiff cross member across the bulk head, and the suspension is slightly stiffer than the coupe. When the roof is down, the car looks completely different, with the speedster style humps which house the roll over bars, should they be needed in the worst case scenario.

This stunning example has been cared for and pampered by Richard for the past 5 years. Finished in "Meteorite Silver Mica", this Vantage has relatively low miles and is in superb condition.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Paul after meeting Richard the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

One of the cars I’ve always wanted to own is an Aston Martin - it has been an amazing 5 years owning this Vantage.

Richard is a keen petrolhead, and owning an Aston Martin had been on the cards for some time. When he started to look, he came across this low mileage 2007 Vantage V8, which he immediately fell in love with. With a deal struck the car made its way home with Richard some 5 years ago.

Used now and again, by his own admission he's "probably spent more time cleaning it than driving it", it is now time to make some space for his other love, which is classic motorcycles. Richard will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have regarding his much loved Vantage in the comments below.

Exterior

Aston Martin certainly got things right with the styling of the Vantage, the hard top version was nice, but the convertible takes it to a new level.

Wheels and Tyres

The wheels have been replaced by Richard, who fancied something a little different and also something other than silver. The anthracite wheels are in excellent condition. There is a tiny mark on the front driver’s side rim, but you do have to look twice to see it.

The tyres are all matching and in excellent condition with plenty of tread remaining, Bridgestone Potenza on this example.

Bodywork

The bodywork for the Aston is quite simply stunning! There are no dings noticed whilst looking around the car. The doors, boot and bonnet all align as you would expect. Opening and closing the doors is easy with the pop out handles, and as you do so, the windows lower or raise a touch when the doors open or close.

The convertible roof is also in good order, with just a few light creases as you would expect often seen, on anything which drops its roof. The roof itself, at the touch of a button, lowers in ~20 seconds.

Please take the time to look through the hi-resolution images we have taken for a more detailed look at the exterior.

Paint

Finished in "Meteorite Silver Mica", the Aston shouts style, finesse and performance whilst looking subtle.

The Vantage has only 57,771 miles covered, and is in excellent condition with really minimal light stone chips to the front, and just an odd few to the leading edges of the rear arches.

Please take the time to fully assess the condition of the exterior. The images taken are from various angles and reflections to show off this stunning 2007 Aston Martin Vantage at its absolute best, as you would see it if you were standing there for yourselves.

Glass and Trim

The glass is all presented in excellent condition, with no obvious scratches or chips which we could see at the time of our visit. The trims and seals are the same, matching the rest of the vehicle.

Please see our detailed gallery showing the full exterior.

Interior

Black leather could be the only choice to finish the interior of this sports roadster - offering comfort and luxury in the cabin of the Vantage.

Seats and Carpets

The seats in the Vantage are in good order, finished in black leather with white stitching. They show very little wear other than some really light age related patina to the edge of the bolster, which is to be expected. The electric side of the seats is working as it should, showing no areas for concern.

The carpets are all nice and clean with no wear to be seen, other than a few light scuffs to the heel pad. Inside the boot, again the carpet is clean with no marks to mention. To the right behind the panel is the factory tyre inflator. There is also the wind deflector stored in its own bag, and for those times in the garage is an Aston Martin battery conditioner to keep the battery in tip top condition.

Please see the interior gallery section for more detailed images.

Dashboard

Finished with the same stitching and black leather to the seats, there are no marks or damage to mention on the dashboard.

The instruments are working as they should, with the odometer displaying a reading of 57,771 miles on our visit, and no warning lights displayed when the engine is running.

Please see the interior gallery for more hi-resolution images.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The steering wheel is in good condition with no signs of excessive wear. Just to the rear are the flappy paddle shifters which work as they should, and in fact, Richard much prefers to use these when driving the Vantage as the change is so smooth.

Mechanics

The 4.3 litre V8 pushes out a healthy ~380BHP and 302 lb-ft of torque, capable of propelling the Vantage from 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds, but really it is all about the sound.

Engine and Gearbox

Position yourself comfortably, turn the key, wait for the system check and then push the Aston Martin start button - the V8 comes to life and sounds fantastic! There are no untoward noises coming from the well maintained V8 as you can hear on our cold start video.

The car moves through the gears exceptionally smoothly when operated via the paddles or in full automatic mode.

Suspension and Brakes

The car sits well and looks like a true superstar before you even drive it. The Vantage is firm enough to be driven hard, yet still retaining comfort even when on uneven ground. There were no noises to come from either corner of the suspension.

Bringing the Vantage to a halt quickly are the dinner plate sized grooved and vented discs. These do have some wear but are in keeping with the age and mileage of the vehicle.

The Drive

Hearing it before you see it, this is a car which turns heads, especially in the summer when the roof is down, some even may be expecting 007 to step out!

With enough power to satisfy your every need, the handling is excellent. Coupled with its stunning looks, what else is there to want from a car?

Electrics and Other

Everything in the car is reported to be working just as it should. The display raises up to show the sat nav and different media settings. The sat nav does work but it is not up to date. There are a couple of the buttons around the stereo area which do have some wear to them, but still work as they should.

History and Paperwork

With a full Service history and only ~57,771 miles, it’s clear the Vantage V8 has been well cared for.

It's so nice to see the fully stamped book, and even nicer is that the services have mostly been carried out at the same time each year, showing the car has been kept in check by Richard and the previous keepers.

Two keys are present along with the owners guide, which incorporates the service stamps. There are some previous invoices kept for servicing and repairs in the past, along with some old MOT certificates. The car has MOT valid until the 19th July 2022.

After five years Richard will be sorry to see it go, as it really has been an excellent car which he has enjoyed. But times change, and as you can fit a few motorcycles in the place of one Vantage V8, it is time to let somebody else have the pleasure of owning this wonderful Aston Martin.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks including photo ID, V5 and also actioned an HPi check on the vehicle.

We've summarised our own view on the car based on information gained from the seller in the listing above, however, and as you can see, we go to great lengths to photograph and video the car in hi-resolution detail - this has been done for you to make your own assessment from the comfort of your sofa. So please sit back, have a cuppa and take your time to review everything on this listing in order to make your own assessment on the vehicle's condition. Viewings are also welcomed with all our listings, so please get in touch with us to arrange a suitable time - we just need to speak to you first and receive a valid photo ID before confirming.

If there's anything you're unsure about, no matter how small, then please first ask the owner in the comments area below before placing your bid/s, as bids can't be retracted and form a binding contract if you win the car - just like a traditional auction house.
