Its has been brought to our attention by a previous owner and is believed that this vehicle was subject to a Category D insurance loss, however, it would appear that after an Autolign inspection, that this was removed and is now clear with HPI. As a result the reserve and estimate has been adjusted accordingly.


Unveiled at the 2001 Geneva Motor Show, the Ian Callum-designed Vanquish was an instant sales success and the fact that it was James Bond's transport of choice only added to the appeal. Featuring a 6.0-litre V12 generating nearly 450bhp mated to a six-speed paddle shift gearbox, the car sat proudly at the top of Aston's range throughout its seven years of production. Aston Martin's position as the ultimate makers of British sports cars continues, bolstered by the muscular Vanquish, and when sprinkled with a little magic from the James Bond- 'Die Another Day' connection, the image was complete.

This Aston Martin Vanquish V12 is a 2+2 model, supplied new in the UK to its first owner, a Mr. Edgar, on 26th October 2001. Originally finished in silver with a black & white leather interior, the car featured such options as; satellite navigation, integrated telephone, premium audio system, heated front seats, 'Powerfold' exterior mirrors. and an aluminium trimmed steering wheel.
