2011 Aston Martin Vantage V8

The V8 Vantage looks sensational and has a reputation for being one of the best-built Astons yet.

Exclusivity and devastating performance have traditionally been Aston Matin's attributes, but with the brands shift into the modern age, the Vantage also brought in a whole new set of dimensions to further the appeal of the brand. As a result, it became one of the best selling Aston Martin's 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 over its course of production, offered with a variety of engines in a different state of tuning but each one carries its own distinctive character and ability. The Vantage is up there with the most desirable cars in the world but offers that rare mixture of genuine British craftsmanship, quality feel and a sense of occasion.

This example finished in black with a tasteful 2 tone leather interior, has covered just 27,000 miles in its life. Add the fact that it's a coupe and comes with the manual gearbox and you have yourself a real drivers combination.

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

Meet the owner

Hands down, it's one of the best looking cars I've ever seen.

Kent clearly is a man of taste and was swayed by the stunning proportions and driving ability of the Vantage. Mainly used as a weekend toy to explore the clear open roads of North Norfolk, he has collected around 2,500 miles since he bought it in late 2018.

However, he has lacked the time to enjoy the car in recent months and so has decided it is time for someone else to enjoy it and put the car on the market with us.

The styling has the ability to draw you in, and still looks fresh to this day.

Wheels and Tyres

The Aston Martin alloys are beautiful, showing off the The 19" alloys are in very good condition throughout, there are no signs of kerbing or damage. The Bridgestone Potenza tyres are very recent items and have years of bite left in them.


The distinctive high waistline on Vantage gives it a striking look from all angles. Couple that with the trademark front grill and you really do have a timeliess design.

The presentation of the bodywork is excellent, no issues to report with shut-lines looking tight and even. We didn't observe any dents suggesting it has been kept away from the dreaded shopping trolleys etc, and no signs of oxidising aluminium.


The black paint finish is generally very good, the lustre and depth of paint are as you would expect for a car of this age. The black paint is unforgiving for showing up minor blemishes, as a result, there are a handful of minor scratches here and there. There are minor stone chips on the front bumper and a minor scrape on the near-side of the edge of the front bumper but could easily be treated. There also appears to be light chipping on the rear sills and lower wings, a typical place as a result of road wear.

Glass and Trim

All the glass appears to be in good order, no chips or cracks repairs. The laminate is In good condition with no fogging or signs of age. The paint finish on the external trim was very good. The headlamp covers are unfogged and free from major scratches.


The interior has worn it's years exceptionally well. It's almost like stepping back into 2011.

Seats and Carpets

Finished in a two tone leather colourway, the cabin is smart and unfussy unlike some more interesting colour choices you often see with Aston Martins.

The seats are in excellent condition, just a little wear on the lower side of the driver's seat where it has rubbed due to the positioning of the hand brake. Both leather seats are what you would expect on a car of this mileage, and generally in well-cared condition with a little leather wear. The beautifully designed door cards are in excellent condition. The carpets are in good condition throughout, with the headline not showing any problems.


There are no issues to report on the leather wrapped dashboard, the quality materials have protected it well from normal use, with just the smallest evident of age here and there. All dials, bezels and controls are in good condition and are said to be fully functional.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

Similarly, the steering and gear knob reflect the mileage and care of ownership and represent no issues in regards of condition.


The V8 Vantage is devastatingly quick on straights but also agile in corners.

Engine and Gearbox

The engine started up after a cold frost morning with no hesitancy and got up to temperature once running. There was no excess smoke after the condensation settled. Great care was taken not to over-rev the engine as it had been standing for a period.

Suspension and Brakes

There are no issues with the functionality of the brakes and the suspension, although the lack of use in recent weeks has allowed a build-up of surface rust that a short drive for the photos brushed off with use.

The Drive

The engines have built a positive reputation for being rock-solid, which is one of the major attributes to the Vantage's overall appeal. The styling still looks stunning and that sense of excitement is amplified once you're on the move. It's not a light car but is agile in its manners. The 4.7-litre engines mid-range torque combined with the manual gearbox delivers a unique experience. Very few cars sound as glorious as the Aston.

Electrics and Other

All of the electrical systems and lights are said to be fully operational. The air-conditioning and heater controls are fully functional.

History and Paperwork

Black, coupe, manual and low mileage; a cracking combination if you're looking for a V8 Vantage.

The car has seen regular servicing from Aston Martin main dealer up to 2015, and then with a known Aston Martin specialist McGurk thereafter. The car had a number of advisories on its 2020 MOT, which necessitated the replacement of all 4 tyres, actioned by Kent.

We have carried out checks on; Seller ID, V5, HPi clear from a theft/insurance write-off perspective. There is fianance outstanding on the vehicle that will need to be settled.

Ask Questions
Post a comment or ask the owner a question about the car.

A bit of research on the VIN shows the vehicle was originally supplied with 10 spoke, diamond turned Alloys but now has the 5 spoke wheels that would normally be supplied on a sports pack car (this is a non-sportpack model). Do you have the original wheels?
@seanedaisy – Aston Martin Premium Audio


I did not know that, no I don’t these are the wheels which were on the car when I bought it


What sound system is on board?


It’s the standard system, not the B&O but still very good.


Has the clutch been changed? Does it slip in high gear if accelerating?

The clutch has not been changed in my ownership, as you’ll see I have only driven around 2000 miles in two years. If you’ve owned an Aston before you’ll know that the change especially from first to second when cold is hard, I warm the car for 10minutes before moving off. As for does it slip when in high gear, no not at all, it’s very tight and the acceleration proves that


That’s great thank you.

Is the premier sound system or is that a ‘bone’ question… apologies from a 2007 owner!
