2016 ASTON MARTIN V12 VANTAGE S MANUAL ROADSTER
Ticking the boxes of the modern era collector’s considerations, this sensational V12 Vantage S Roadster with manual transmission, could hardly have been anything other than perfect, when signed off for production, quality checked and purchased by Dr. Andy Palmer, President and CEO of Aston Martin in 2016.
1 of just 36 examples of the V12 Vantage S Roadster built in Right-Hand Drive, equipped with 7-speed manual transmission. Uniquely finished in Q - Match to Sample Satin Mariana Blue, with a black exterior hood, over Obsidian Black hides with Spicy Red contrast stitching, the specification, developed by Aston Martin’s ‘Q’ division for Dr Palmer, is highly detailed and as comprehensive as one might expect, for the first owner.
In addition to the standard specifications, this 2017 model year example benefits from numerous optional extras, which include; B&O Beosound Audio system, Carbon Fibre hood louvres, yellow brake calipers, black textured tailpipe finishers, exterior carbon pack and red details on the wing mirror caps, full length Twill Carbon fascia trim, V12 side fender badges, front grille carbon with red detail surround, front parking sensors and reversing camera, carbon gear shift surround, Piano Black interior trim pack, Aston Martin Wings headrest embroidery, Carbon side strakes, lightweight wheels in satin black, black side window finishers and a convertible wind deflector. A full specification list is available on request.
With routine servicing and maintenance carried out annually at Aston Martin main agents, including its last service in September 2020 and having covered just 10,600 miles in the hands of its two owners, this car is in superb condition throughout with only the lightest evidence of use, courtesy of the protection provided by the full body PPF applied. Supplied with a history file, including a personalised letter confirming Dr Palmer’s ownership, owner’s manual and spare keys and a bespoke, custom fit car cover.
This rare and exhilarating convertible perfectly represents the ending of an era of Aston Martin V12 engined cars, specifically with manual transmission. Never to be built again, with the advent of turbo charged, hybrid and ultimately electrically powered cars upon us, the opportunities to acquire an example of this model, with such strong credentials, grow less as time passes.
