Introduction

Adam
CEO

The Aston Martin is a stunning sports coupe, and is possibly one of the best cars of it's generation.

The brochure of the Vantage states the perfect proportions are ‘timelessly beautiful’ and we don’t think anyone can argue with that statement.

Paul mentions how happy he was when choosing this car as the seats look like they are new. Paul took us round our local area of Warwickshire having a great time. We apologise for some of the audio in our videos as we had trouble with our camera.

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

Meet the owner

This is Paul’s own personal car that he bought over 15 months ago. During that time he’s enjoyed it as a weekend car for longer road trips, notably driving the car to Le Mans last year; an illuminating experience for any car enthusiast.

Paul has completed around 1,700 miles in this gorgeous GT car and has maintained it in excellent condition. Paul is a car guy and has held senior engineering positions at Jaguar Land Rover before semi-retiring and starting his own E-Type restoration business – we know Paul well and there is no one better out there to buy such a car off.

Exterior

The brochure of the Vantage states the perfect proportions are ‘timelessly beautiful’ and we don’t think anyone can argue with that statement.

Wheels and Tyres

The Aston is fitted with 7-spoke alloy painted wheels blessed with:

Bridgestone Potenza, 235/40/19? front (2019), and 275/35/19? rear that
appear in excellent condition. The nearside front wheel has a slight imperfection and does not affect the drive.

Bodywork

The bodywork really is in excellent condition, together with the soft-top roof.

We only noticed some small imperfections in the chrome look plastic parts that are inset in the vents on the front wings – an easy part to change if the new owner wishes. There is one very small stone chip on the bonnet that is difficult to see, however, we have pointed it out in the images. The roof takes around 16 seconds to function.

Paint

Presented in an iconic Tungsten Silver that many associated the brand with, you see that in the video and photos, this car is truly in immaculate order.

Glass and Trim

Both are in excellent condition across the car. The large nearside windscreen wiper has slight surface corrosion which has been sprayed with paint, this can be easily remedied by the new owner that will want to maintain the condition of this car.

Interior

The overall interior looks to be in excellent condition and Adam states he smelt that new car aroma when entering the car – something you only get from a 12 year car when the materials are luxurious and the owner taking care of such a fine example.

Seats and Carpets

Both are in immaculate condition, the seats are finished in Strathmore, Sandstorm leather with grey carpets that have been kept well.

Dashboard

The graphite colour to the dashboard finishes the car in a tidy manner and the whole interior is in excellent condition.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

Both are in excellent condition with no issues.

Mechanics

You can see this car is built to drive in a comfortable manner, but like any sports car you can allow yourself a fully enjoyable driving experience when accelerating.

Engine and Gearbox

The car started first go from cold with no issues (see the start of the meet the owner video). You are blessed with a 4.3L V8 engine that is crafted with expert engineering achieving 380hp out of the factory with rear-wheel drive. The car also has a 6-speed manual transmission. The engine bay looks incredibly tidy as can be seen in the videos and photos.

Suspension and Brakes

The suspension was smooth on our ride out and the 4 disc-brakes look to be in good condition and worked as expected on such a fantastic example.

The Drive

This car is built for the ultimate driving experience. Smooth, quiet and comfortable when cruising, and exciting when pulling off with the throttle down. It is designed to be driven everyday if the owner is so inclined to.

Electrics and Other

The electrics worked as expected with no issues on our visit. As you can see in the videos the electric roof performs well.

History and Paperwork

Like most caring owners and their Aston Martin, the car comes with a complete history that details all servicing and health checks that have been undertaken by AM specialists throughout its healthy life.

During the previous ownership the owner bought the car for £44,000 in February 2016 from specialists, highlighting the depreciation in value in 2020, but not diminishing the condition of the car – this is a true bargain.

Paul, the current owner is happy to negotiate the sale of the old English private number plate (3 numbers / 3 letters) that is currently on the car, 260 SVT at a fixed price of £1,500 on top of the vehicle price. It’s a valuable dateless plate that really does look great on the car.
