A firm favourite of the team here, we are pleased to once again be offering to market this superbly specified, low mileage V12 Vantage S Manual, uniquely finished in Mariana Blue over Lords Red hides.
“It’s fantastic. It’s wonderful, wonderful, wonderful” said no other than Jeremy Clarkson, when summarising the original V12 Vantage model, in one of the most emotive motoring videos ever produced, for Top Gear, shortly after the model’s launch, in 2009.
Over the next 9 years, the V12 Vantage went on to be one of the most successful and respected Aston Martin models, appealing to existing customers of the marque and to a new and enthusiastic audience. Following various improvements and model year specification changes, production of the V12 Vantage ceased in 2018, by which time the S specification model was introduced (in 2013) with the 565 bhp engine, mated to either a Sportshift III or 7-speed manual gearbox.
It is one of those ‘last of the line’ 2017 model year, 7-speed manual V12 Vantage S that we are delighted to offer. One of just 114 right-hand drive 7-speed manuals and one of just 6 finished in this exterior paint colour and the only example built in this interior / exterior colour combination, making it a ‘one of one’!
Finished in Mariana Blue over Lords Red hides, with Cream Truffle contrasting stitching and Black cherry carpets. The livery is completed by Q special Jet Black painted roof panel and Jet Black painted tailgate graphic (including tail lamp infills). Overall, a classic, distinguished specification.
In addition to the usual high specifications of this model, notable optional extras chosen by the original purchaser, a serial Aston Martin owner and client of Nicholas Mee & Co for many years, include: Aston Martin 700w Premium Audio, Black hood meshes, Dark anodised brake calipers, bright tailpipe finishers, piano black fascia and Piano Black interior trim pack, front grille carbon, Sports seats, bright side strakes, 19” 10 spoke Liquid Silver wheels and bright side window finishers. Laterly, a set of iconic ‘Union Jack’ Aston Martin wings have been fitted, the originals being available if not to the taste of the next owner.
Sold by ourselves to it’s second owner in 2019, the car has been much cherished by its two owners and maintained, to schedule, by either Aston Martin Works or ourselves, the last service having been completed in March 2023. Our pre-sales inspection confirms that the car is in excellent condition throughout with only the lightest evidence of use.
Supplied with our usual high standards of pre-delivery preparation, 12 months warranty and with a complete history file, containing original Sale invoice, Build Record, MOT certificates and service invoices, Owners manual, custom fit bespoke car cover and battery conditioner.
Available for viewing and demonstration at our Hertfordshire showrooms.
