Introduced in 2005, the 'V8 Vantage' is the cornerstone of the Vantage family. Its proportions are timelessly beautiful, styled to seduce, the simple yet potent Vantage design is instantly recognisable. A clean, sculptural form and perfectly executed details combine to create a car with presence, compelling visual tension and timeless beauty.
A pure-bred sports car combining agility, athleticism and potency. Powered by a lightweight 4.3ltr V8 engine, the V8 Vantage adheres to a simple philosophy of effortless and exploitable performance. The 4.3 engine produces 380bhp at peak power, maximum torque of 409Nm and, when combined with a lightweight agile chassis, this produces a surprisingly quick but usable sportscar. Hand-assembled at Aston Martin's purpose-built engine facility, the V8 engine is tuned to deliver the broadest possible spread of performance. Special attention was paid to the way the engine breathes, performing to its maximum all through the rev range.
This beautiful Aston Martin V8 Vantage was first delivered in November 2005 and is finished in the fantastic colour combination of Jet Black Metalflake with Oxblood leather and is fitted with the, all important, six-speed manual gearbox.
Showing just 25,000 miles, supported by 12 stamps in the service book, the car has obviously been well looked after with its most recent service being in August 2016, carried out by Aston Service London.
Presented with a good history file containing the Owner's book pack and Manuals, and a number of maintenance invoices, this high specification Aston is fitted with sat-nav, cruise control, and parking sensors, and represents serious value for money.
It's an Aston, the V8 sounds like nothing else, the colour combination is really stylish, it offers just the 'best' driving experience, and it's not expensive. No contest!
