Without a doubt, one of our most exciting offerings from the famed 1st generation of production at the Gaydon works, this spectacular and unique V12 Vantage S Manual Roadster, upgraded with the Performance Pack to now produce 595bhp.
The result of successive development, the V12 Vantage S with 7-speed (dog leg) Manual gearbox represents the pinnacle of the first generation Gaydon production Aston Martin’s. The charismatic V12 engine of 595 bhp, gives an intoxicating analogue performance and sound, arguably unmatched by the turbo charged V8 engine and 8-speed automatic gearbox, of current production cars.
This truly unique example, we are delighted to offer, 1 of just 31 UK RHD V12 Vantage S Manual Roadsters, was conceived and designed by the studios of Aston Martin’s famed Q division at their Gaydon HQ.
Inspiringly finished in (Q Special) Red Lion, with Red Satin tint Carbon Fibre used for the hood louvres, front grille, front splitter, rear diffuser and side strakes. The exterior appearance is further complemented by the bespoke touches of Jet Black lipstick graphic, Jet Black wing mirror covers and Jet Black Tailgate graphic (including rear light infills), Red brake calipers, sitting behind Satin Black Lightweight wheels, and black enamel infill Q fender badges, body colour exterior door releases, black textured tailpipe finishers and black side window finishers. Topped with a convertible hood in Black.
The interior is clothed in Pure Black Caithness Leather and Pure Black Alcantara with Spicy Red stitching with Obsidian Black carpets. Additional bespoke ‘Q’ touches in the interior include the Red Satin tint full length Twill Carbon Fibre facia trim, split Silver and Spicy Red V12 Vantage S headrest embroidery, the Obsidian Black full alcantara steering wheel, hand brake gaiter in Pure Black leather with Spicy Red stitching, Pure Black alcantara instrument binnacle, gear shift gaiter and door inserts with Spicy Red leather stripe. Leaving no stone unturned, the Owner’s Manual and ECU key pouch are also finished in Spicy Red, a further bespoke ‘Q’ touch.
