2009 Aston Martin V8 Vantage

Now available for sale


Colin Bashford
Professional Consigner

With it's Tempest Blue paint and silver, twin-spoke wheels, this V8 Vantage has all the class you expect from an Aston Martin.

In 2005 Aston Martin brought back the V8 Vantage, a small, nimble sports car to rival the likes of the Porsche 911. Fitted with a 4.3L V8 producing ~380bhp, with a very distinctive sound. The Vantage has the beauty of its siblings, a large grille and wide stance also give it a menacing look.

2008 saw an update to the V8 Vantage, where the 4.7L power unit was introduced, which upped the power to ~420bhp. The V8 features a race-derived dry sump, allowing the engine to be mounted lower therefore keeping the centre of gravity low.

This particular car is a later 4.7L variant, it comes to market after ~22 months ownership with Norman and it has an MOT that's valid until 03.06.2024 and only ~52,958 miles on the clock.

This listing was written from information supplied by Colin after meeting Norman the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

Having bought the Vantage for its GT credentials, Norman has made the most of it by taking the car on a couple of road trips to Europe.

Having seen one at a local car show, Norman got speaking to the owner of the Vantage and realised how affordable they were - he then found himself this lovely Tempest Blue example and had to have it.

Norman wanted to take the car on adventure; he has driven the car in France and Switzerland, enjoying every minute of it. Having done the trips Norman wanted to in the Vantage, he has decided to let us find a new owner.

Norman has loved the power and noise from the car and hopes the new owner will enjoy it as much as he has - he will be happy to answer any questions in the comments section below.

A wide stance combined with gorgeous body lines; the V8 Vantage is a timeless stunner.

Wheels and Tyres

Fitted with silver twin spoke wheels and overall they looked in good condition - we just noticed a few markings; nothing a standard wheel refurbisher couldn't fix.

The Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres were found all round the car, dated 2021 and looked to have plenty of life left in them.

Please have a look at the photos and video below to asses the condition of the wheels and tyres for yourself.


The bodywork looks to be in very good condition - we just noticed a couple of scratches on the rear bumper and a very small ding on the driver side quarter panel, which is pointed out in the video below.

We've highlighted in more detail our observations through our hi-resolution images and videos, so please take time to look through all the media files for a detailed view at what’s on offer, and for you to assess the condition of the car for yourselves.


The Tempest Blue paint looked in good condition across the car.

The images are taken from a few different angles to show off the car as you would see it if you were standing there for yourselves. So please take the time to fully assess these hi-resolution images and videos of the car, for you to make up your own minds about the condition of the paint.

Glass and Trim

All the glass looked in good condition, we didn't notice any cracks - there was just a couple of small stone chips on the top of the windscreen on the passenger side.

The chrome trim looked in great condition, all the grilles around the car looking good too, we didn't notice any issues with any of them.

Please view the photos and video below to review the condition of the glass and trim for yourself.


Blue leather on the inside compliments the external colour; a very luxurious cabin greets the driver.

Seats and Carpets

The blue leather sports seats looked in great condition - we noticed a few little scratches on the driver's seat bolster, near where the seatbelt comes over the shoulder, but this is very minimal and looks to be in line with the age of the vehicle.

The carpets all looked in excellent condition too.

Please take a look at the photos and video below to decide on the condition of the seats and carpets for yourself.


The clocks looked good and functioned as you would expect, with no issues.

Norman has fitted a new stereo with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which uses the built in swivel screen.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The steering wheel is great shape, we didn't notice any issues, and hardly any signs of wear.

Gear selection is made from buttons on the dashboard and flappy paddles; all looked in great condition too.

Please take a look at the photos and video below to check the condition of the steering wheel and gear selection buttons/paddles for yourself.


The 4.7L V8 commands attention - a superb beating heart for this grand tourer.

Engine and Gearbox

The engine sprung into life at first attempt with no issues. On the road the engine performed well, plenty of power and noise to go with it.

We didn't notice any unwanted noises from the engine. The gearbox performed well too, with smooth changes.

Please take a look at the cold start video below to see for yourself the performance of the engine and gearbox.

Suspension and Brakes

The suspension felt tight, but not too harsh. The Vantage held the road well and we didn't notice any unusual noises coming from the suspension.

We didn't get a chance to properly test the brakes on our short drive, but they did feel good with no unwanted noises noticed either.

Please take a look at the on the road video below to see how the suspension and brakes performed.

The Drive

On the short drive with Norman the Vantage felt great, very responsive with great road handling.

We didn't notice any creaks or other noises whilst on the road.

To see the Vantage in motion please take a look at the on the road video below.

Electrics and Other

Everything we used worked as expected, including the stereo with Android Auto.

Norman told us everything was working on the car.

History and Paperwork

This lovely Vantage has been looked after by main dealers for its first seven services, and then specialist, McGurks, for the following six services.

The car has had the clutch and flywheel replaced in 2022.

Overall a great opportunity to own a well looked after example of the updated V8 Vantage.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks including photo ID, V5 and also actioned a 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.
