The 6-speed manual, V12 Vantage. Quite possibly, our most requested model of 2020 so far. With timeless styling, exhilarating performance, likely strong residual values from current levels and eminently sensible maintenance costs, we can fully understand the considerable appeal!
In production from 2009 through to June 2013, a little over 300 cars were built with the 6-speed manual transmission for the UK market. This model remains, for many enthusiasts, a milestone of Aston Martin production, with an analogue feel and animalistic instincts, less present in the newer turbo engined and 8-speed automatic transmission ‘second century’ cars.
First registered in 2013, finished in AML Carbon Black with Obsidian Black hide and contrasting silver stitch, this superb V12 Vantage has now covered just 9,600 miles. Notable optional extras specified with this car include; AM 700w Premium Audio, black brake calipers, exterior Carbon pack, Carbon interior pack, black vaned front grille, black meshes, reversing camera and heated front sport seats. Fitted latterly for the last owner were front parking sensors and PPF, in the important areas.
Benefitting from annual servicing at AM Main agents, this car is in fantastic condition throughout, as befits the low mileage.
Without doubt, the V12 Vantage is one of our favourites from the Gaydon factory. Referred to on Top Gear TV by Jeremy Clarkson as “wonderful, wonderful”, the V12 Vantage is often described as a brute in a suit, whatever though, there’s no denying the wonderful performance and delicious feeling of well-being, which goes with every drive. One of the greatest drivers’ cars, from the back catalogue of Aston Martin greats.
