We are pleased to offer this attractive V12 Vantage, finished in Tungsten Silver over Obsidian Black hides.

The 510 bhp 6-speed manual, V12 Vantage. Quite possibly, the most in demand Aston Martin at present. With timeless styling, exhilarating performance, strong residual values 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.

This excellent example was first registered November 2011 and is finished in Tungsten Silver with Obsidian Black hide and contrasting silver stitch. Notable optional extras specified with this car include; Aston Martin 700w Premium Audio, black brake calipers, Piano Black fascia trim, bright finish front grille, front parking sensors 19” 10 spoke Graphite diamond turned wheels.

Being a 2012 model year example, this particular car benefits from later specification upgrades including the improved Garmin sat-nav system.

Benefitting from annual servicing at Aston Martin main agents, as confirmed by our pre-sale inspection, this car is in excellent condition throughout, with only minimal evidence of use and age. The next owner will receive a fresh service, to schedule, our usual high standards of pre-delivery preparation and detailing,12 months MOT and 12 months warranty.

Offered in superb condition throughout, this ‘collector grade’, low mileage DBS, finished in Midnight Blue over Phantom Grey hides, with Phantom Grey carpets and with a Cirrus Grey headlining.

Replacing the first generation Vanquish as the flagship of the Aston Martin range in 2007, the DBS is a significant model in the history of Aston Martin. Not only being, at the time, the most capable high performance GT model Aston Martin had produced, with 510bhp, a stiffer chassis and carbon ceramic brakes providing awesome stopping power, but also the DBS was to play a starring role in ‘Casino Royale’, the 007 movie that provided Daniel Craig his debut as our favourite secret agent, firmly putting the model on the map and providing dealers worldwide with full order books at launch.

Aston Martin went on to build just over 2,500 DBS’ with the model having just about the highest black /grey / silver score of any Aston Martin ever, with 72% being built in these colours before production ceased in 2012. This particular DBS is finished in the very rare ‘Fast Track’ colour of Midnight Blue, just 1 of 8 UK right hand drive DBS’ to be finished in the colour and interestingly, the only example to have been built with an all Phantom Grey interior, therefore it being a ‘One of One’.

This 2011 model year example was first registered in November 2010, in 2+2 seating and Touchtronic II specification. In addition to the usual luxurious specifications of the DBS, which includes Bang & Olufsen Beosound audio system, Dynamic stability control (DCS) and Adaptive Damping System (ADS) optional extras chosen on this example include; Full length Piano Black fascia trim, Alarm upgrade Volumetric + Tilt Sensors, auto dim interior rear view mirror, DBS headrest logo, and 10 spoke Diamond Turned Silver wheels.

Purchased by its last, enthusiast owner from Aston Martin Cambridge in 2011, servicing has been carried out, annually by the same agents with our own workshops carrying out the last two services, most recently in June of this year. Having now thoroughly prepared the car for sale, we can confirm that its condition is of the highest order, throughout. The paintwork being virtually unmarked and the interior displaying only the lightest evidence of any wear.

Supplied with an extensive history folder, containing previous purchase invoice, servicing receipts and MOT certificates along with a custom fit Aston Martin car cover, Aston Martin umbrella and battery conditioner.

With the best DBS examples now being highly sought after by the Aston Martin enthusiast community, with many suggesting that the purposeful yet timeless styling of the model thus far to be bettered, we would go as far as saying that now is the perfect ‘Time to Buy’ one of these future classics! This therefore represents an opportunity to own one of the very best examples, in this classic and rare colour combination.

Finished in Ultramarine Black, over Ivory and Obsidian Black hides and complimented by the Black convertible hood, we are delighted to offer to market this superb, low mileage and highly specified example of the ‘last of the line’ DB9 GT Volante.

The DB9 GT, revealed in June 2015, in Coupe and Volante form, was described by Aston Martin as the ‘ultimate incarnation of the DB9’ with the car representing the end of the run of one of the marque’s most successful models and packed with numerous cosmetic and performance enhancements. Notable improvements featuring in the DB9 GT specification include; uprated engine performance to 540bhp, the arrival of the AMi II touch sensitive infotainment system, ‘GT’ badges, engraved fuel cap, sill plaques and seat embroidery, unique micro perforated fluted seat inserts and door inserts, revised headlight and tail light treatments and new ten-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels.

To consider the DB9 GT as a simple ‘run out model’ is a gross simplification. The combination of the numerous additions and refinements, complimenting the many years improvement and refinement the DB9 model received, all add up to a highly pleasing ownership experience.

The superb 2017 Model Year example we are now pleased to offer is one of just 269 built, with just 90 for the UK RHD market. Classically specified in (AML Special) Ultramarine Black (best described as the very darkest blue) over Ivory and Obsidian Black hides with Black stitching and welting. Just 3 of the UK DB9 GT Volante’s were finished in Ultramarine Black, all of which having different interior combinations, thus making this particular car a ’One of One’.

In addition to the standard luxurious DB9 GT Volante specifications, notable optional extras specified on this example include dark anodised brake calipers, Sports Exhaust, Graphite tailpipe finishers, full length Piano Black fascia trim and Piano Black interior trim pack, carbon fibre wing mirror caps and rear light infills, carbon fibre bonnet louvres, One-77 steering wheel, black finish bonnet and side meshes and black finish front grille and bright side window finishers.

Finished in one of the most desirable colour combinations for this model and benefitting from low mileage and a comprehensive servicing and maintenance regime, we are pleased to offer this superb ‘late model’ 1998 V8 Coupe.

The Aston Martin V8 Coupe adopted the styling cues and significantly, the chassis improvements of the flagship V8 Vantage 550 supercharged model, in an elegant and more subtly styled body. Built near the end of the coach-built era of car manufacturing, just 101 of the V8 Coupe's rolled off the Newport Pagnell production line, in total. Now highly sought after, the V8 Coupe is a Grand Tourer par excellence and is refined, with a luxuriously appointed interior, generous 2+2 seating and well-balanced body styling. Attributes, which when combined with the model’s effortless performance, give a superb Grand Touring experience.

Finished in Rolls Royce Midnight Blue and complemented with Parchment and Pacific Blue Connolly hide interior. This excellent example much cherished by its 4 owners from new, is complete with a comprehensive Aston Martin service history, from the original supplying dealer onward, with services carried out by Aston Martin Works and highly respected AM specialists.

Purchased by its last but one owner from ourselves in 2017, an enthusiast and collector of the marque, more recently the car has been fitted with a new audio system and new set of tyres by surrey-based AM specialist’s. This particular car, has also been Immortalised and now features in the definitive AMV8 reference book, the 'Aston Martin V8’ by Palawan Press. More exclusive and refined, than both its Virage and V8 predecessors, the hand built and extreme low volume production V8 Coupe’s, warrant attention from enthusiasts and collectors alike. This late example is one of the finest we know and is in particularly excellent order, throughout.

Supplied with an extensive history file, including servicing and MOT records, a manufacturer’s build sheet and its original, 1998 purchase invoice. This car is supplied, fully prepared to our usual high standards, by our own Heritage technicians and is now ‘on the button’ ready to be enjoyed by its next custodian.

Available now, for viewing and inspection at our showrooms in Hertfordshire.



A truly excellent example of Ian Callum’s iconic design, this 2007 Vanquish S has covered just 23,000 miles from new. The car is in stunning condition and has been cherished by its previous enthusiast owners, demonstrated by its full Aston Martin main agent and marque specialist service history.

With its heroic, iconic and timeless styling, combined with highly capable, ultimate Grand Tourer performance, combined with a sumptuous, comfortable cabin, the Vanquish S model is firmly established as a must have ‘Young Timer’ classic car to today’s enthusiast and collector.

When production of the Vanquish S, at the Newport Pagnell Works, ceased in 2007, just 1,086 examples had been produced which are now being sought after and acquired by an increasingly discerning client base.
The example that we are now delighted to offer certainly does not disappoint in any regard and can be regarded as a ‘tick box’ example; low mileage, highly desirable colour combination, full Aston Martin Service History and outstanding condition throughout.

First registered in May 2007, this is one of the last 100 Vanquish S to have been built and owned for 10 years by a long-standing enthusiast of the marque, who has for many years played an active role in the Aston Martin Owners Club and participated in many Concours events, often with this particular car. Retained by him until 2018, when sold by ourselves to its next two owners , most recently in 2021.

Finished in the beautiful Ferrari colour of Grigio Titanio over Obsidian Black hides and carpets, this example is fitted with heated seats, Bluetooth, iPod connectivity, a heated front screen and 2+2 seating configuration. It has also participated in a number of Aston Martin Owners Club events, most recently securing a 2nd in class finish at the 2017 Spring Concours as well as being featured on the cover of the AM Quarterly magazine.

We could not hope to find a Vanquish S in better condition and it is presented in nothing less than Concours condition. Supplied with a substantial history folder, fresh service, 12 months MOT and 12 months warranty, it is available for immediate viewing and demonstration at our Hertfordshire showrooms.

In addition to the usual Vanquish S refinements, additional optional extras specified with this car include; Grey brake calipers, body colour door releases, heated front seats, quilted headlining trim, heated front screen, powerfold exterior mirrors, rear parking sensors, SatNav and 2+2 seating.

In 2009, with a recorded mileage of 11,944 miles, the car was sent to Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell to receive its 6-speed, three pedal, manual gearbox conversion which was offered in response to the feedback of some owners who preferred the engagement a manual car provided, over the automated manual ‘paddleshift’ gearbox which was the standard equipment in the Vanquish S model.

Having covered just 18,100 miles from new, our pre sales inspection confirms that the car is in excellent condition throughout. The paintwork being unmarked and the interior still presenting and smelling like a new car!

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.

1986 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Zagato – Ex’ Works developed competition / fast road car.

The only example ever developed and prepared by the Aston Martin Works for competition purposes, now prepared for fast road use. Chassis 20013, the first ‘production’ V8 Vantage Zagato Coupe, was delivered to its first owner, C.H.Taylor and Co of Aston Birmingham, in July 1986, finished in Gladiator Red with Fawn trim.

Sold to the second owner, Ambassador Textiles Ltd, in June 1989, the Zagato remained in standard configuration until 1998 when, this car, 1 of just 50 production examples, with just 7,500 miles covered, was acquired by internationally celebrated comedy actor Rowan Atkinson, for the purpose of a full rebuild and development project, to prepare it for competitive events.

After approaching Aston Martin in Newport Pagnell, a highly detailed project proposal was presented and terms agreed, between the Mr Atkinson and the Aston Martin Works, to dismantle and rebuild this car to a defined competition specification. Developed to AMOC C2 Class ‘Mildly Modified’ category, a set of regulations which allowed for limited but highly effective modifications, based on the car remaining close to production car specifications. Campaigned for 2 racing seasons between 1999 and 2000, by Rowan Atkinson, with full event support provided by Aston Martin Works, the car was raced in UK based events organised by the British Racing Drivers’ Club and by the AMOC. Racing and competing against more heavily modified sports racing cars, this Works re- engineered Zagato, enjoyed several pole positions in class and a number of excellent results in the hands of its owner.

Retired from competition by the end of 2001 and driven occasionally on the road thereafter, 20011 was subsequently sold in 2008 and professionally stored prior to changing hands in 2016. The new owner subsequently commissioned a program of works to be carried out by ourselves, with the aim of bringing the car into a more ‘road useable’ specification, without losing its competition car hallmarks.

Retaining its factory fitted roll cage now trimmed in Alcantara, the adaptive works included the re-instating of a number of interior fitments, included the fitting of air conditioning, trimming of the interior in Black Alcantara, leather and new carpeting, re-fitting of factory supplied original Zagato sports front seat and the re instatement of interior storage compartments. With the interior re-instated other detailed changes to the suspension and brakes were completed, the result being a more comfortable and acceptable environment for road use, whilst not undermining its competition heritage.

Currently, this exceptional and truly unique Works prepared Zagato, weighs some 300 Kg’s less than a production V8 Vantage Zagato, retains its original Aston Martin Works developed and built, 482 bhp fuel injected 5.3 litre engine, fitted to its original 5-speed manual transmission. The car is both highly tractable on the public highway and offers blistering performance, on the road and on the track.

Accompanying the car, are a number of highly detailed history files, which clearly show the depth of engineering and development work employed in creating, this unique Works prepared car, covering its extensive Works preparation and maintenance, as well as its subsequent transformation, back to its current road car form. Road registered and MoT’d, this powerful and agile former competition prepared ‘one off’ V8 Vantage Zagato, is now ideally specified for the occasional track day, road rally, sprint or hill climb event, that early morning spirited drive in the open countryside or displaying in concours events.

Documentation included:

•Original multi page competition car project proposal from the Aston Martin works.

•Aston Martin works descriptive summary of competition car development and full rebuild, completed in 2019.

•Full photographic record of AM Works rebuild, from road car to competition car specifications.

•Detailed Aston Martin Works invoices, for the rebuild into competition specifications.

•Copies of race results and qualifying data whilst being supported track side by AM Works.

•Current UK V5 registration document and MoT certificate.

Finished in iconic Aston Martin Racing Green over Forest Green and Parchment Aniline hides, we are delighted to offer this superb example of the stunning DB7 Zagato, car 47 of 99 built.
Towards the end of the DB7 production era, in 2002, the DB7 Zagato was unveiled, rekindling one of the motoring world’s most iconic partnerships; Aston Martin and Zagato. Based on a shortened DB7 platform, the Zagato employed the 435bhp V12 powerplant mated to a short-throw 6-speed manual transmission. The distinctive styling, including Zagato’s trademarked “double-bubble” roof, evoking strong memories of the iconic DB4 GT Zagato from the 1960s, not to mention the stunning driveline from the most focused DB7 built, the GT, ensured that the orderbook for all 99 cars was quickly fulfilled.

Bodied mostly in aluminium by Carrozzeria Zagato in Italy, the car was almost 60kg lighter than the standard DB7 GT giving it a suitably enhanced turn of speed over its mechanically similar stablemate. The lighter-weight DB7 Zagato, was estimated to be capable of around 190 mph and able to reach 60 mph in comfortably under 5 seconds.
The DB7 Zagato, 20 years on from launch, has established itself amongst Aston Martin enthusiasts worldwide, for its driving performance and distinctive styling which has since proved itself to have been ahead of its time.

This example, first registered in January 2004 has been lovingly cared for throughout its life and benefits from a comprehensive servicing and maintenance regime at Aston Martin main agents and recognised marque specialists, including its most recent service in October 2022. An Aston Martin sports exhaust ensures that it sounds as good as it looks! Having covered just 9,000 miles from new, condition is superb throughout.

Benefitting from annual servicing, to schedule, at Aston Martin Main agents, this car is in immaculate, as new condition throughout, protected by full car PPF and is supplied with all keys and owner’s manual, original umbrella and bespoke Aston Martin car cover.

When considering an original purchase price of circa £550,000 and given the depreciation curves followed by previous limited edition Zagato Aston Martin models, this car now represents superb value for what is likely to become a highly collectible and sought-after model, produced at the very end of the successful 1st generation of production at the Gaydon factory, before the introduction of the 2nd century Aston Martins.

Built between 1988 and 1991, this highly detailed and professionally recreated DBR2 was the brainchild of the late John R Etheridge, an Aston Martin works Experimental Division engineer from 1956 onward and member of the race team.

Having wished for many years, since his time in the works racing department, to build for himself a DBR2, Etheridge’s opportunity came in 1990 when, with financial backing from F1 race entrants Safir Engineering, construction of this wonderful recreation started in the workshops of J. R. Etheridge Engineering Ltd, in Bushey Heath, London,

An original 1957 ‘Works’ DBR2, DBR2/2, maintained by Etheridge, was made available by the then owner, for detailed technical analysis and reverse engineering. A new tubular steel chassis, faithful to the original, was constructed and a new body buck made (included in the sale) enabling the aluminium body panels, to be fabricated. Built to the original configuration and keeping to the original design principles, including the use of Aston Martin parts, the completed car was first seen in public in 1991.

As with the original DBR2’s, the Tadek Marek designed Aston Martin DB4 engine, to 4.0 litre capacity, is fitted and carries a cylinder head identified with DP5057/2 stampings. DP5057 being the official engine project number for DBR2, the /2 denoting this cylinder head as being the second ‘project’ cylinder head, built up and fitted in 1957 to DBR2/2.

Commenting after inspecting the car in 1990, Ted Cutting, former Aston Martin Engineering Director 1949-1964, wrote to Etheridge, ‘you’ve done a great job. I’d go so far as to say that the car you’ve built, I’d have been proud to have done myself!’

The highly effective DBR2’s, of which only 2 were built, successfully raced in 1957 and 1958 as Works entries, with DBR2/1 and DBR2/2 being driven by Works drivers, Stirling Moss, Roy Salvadori, Tony Brooks and Paul Frere. With outright wins and new lap records set in Goodwood’s Sussex Trophy race, at Silverstone in the BRDC meeting and in the Empire Trophy race at Oulton Park during the ‘57 and ’58 seasons. Other races entered with the DBR2, included the Le Mans 24hrs in 1957. Retired from international sportscar racing by 1959, due to a new 3.0 litre engine size limit being imposed by the regulators, both original DBR/2’s were successfully campaigned by Carroll Shelby in the USA, before being sold off. Now in significant collectors’ hands, the two original DBR2’s are conservatively valued in excess of $20 million each.

This exceptional recreated DBR2, 1 of 1 built, was retained by Etheridge until 1995, when the car was sold to the late, racer and notable Aston Martin collector, Robert Leyba in Germany. Etheridge’s DBR2, forming part of Leyba’s sizeable collection, which at that time was the largest Aston Martin collection in Europe, was used occasionally on road events, before being sold at the inaugural Bonhams Aston Martin auction in 2000, achieving almost double the auctioneers estimate. The last owner, a Belgian collector, professionally stored and enjoyed the car occasionally, over the last 20 years.

UK road registered and carrying 1971 Aston Martin vehicle identity, this exceptional car is simply wonderful and fast to drive. Eligible for many historic road rally events and with some level of modification, could be made to comply with FIA HTP regulations, applicable for International historic racing. Finished in period Aston Martin racing green, the car is trimmed and finished in original and correct period materials and fitted with the correct period instrumentation, layout and switchgear.

Notes on the constructor, John R Etheridge (1941 -2014):

Etheridge’s credentials need little introduction, save to say that after serving his years employed in Experimental Division and racing activities of Aston Martin, he in 1963, at the personal invitation of John Wyer, joined Ford Motor Co’s highly successful Advance Vehicle Operations team, to build and race the all-conquering Ford GT40’s. A heroic story well told, in 2019 Hollywood blockbuster, Ford v Ferrari. Wyer always opined that John was one of his finest racing mechanics.

At the end of Fords GT40 racing programme, Etheridge teamed up with established race car manufacturer Safir Engineering and John Wyer’s automotive business in acquiring from the Ford Motor Co in Dearborn, a licence to build and further run 40 Ford GT40 MkV’s, now in collections worldwide.

In 1968 he set up his own company specialising in Aston Martins, Ferrari’s and the Ford GT40. His workshops always looked more akin to hospital operating theatres than any garage – such were his standards.

The Series 2 DB4 is distinguishable by the high scoop bonnet profile and pressed alloy grille, shared with the DB4GT model and it’s appropriately termed, ‘cathedral’ tail lamps and arched rear wing profile. Beautifully proportioned this early DB4 is as originally imagined and designed, by Italian Carrozzeria ‘Touring of Milan’. Entitled Superleggera, this design principle formed the basis of Aston Martin’s golden age of car production, for a further 11 years.

Body-off restored and engine overhauled in the late 1980’s by highly regarded specialists and continuously maintained thereafter. A substantial number of receipts and invoices contained in this car’s history file, attest to the care and maintenance carried out by its successive owners.

Developed from the DB4, the DB4 GT was conceived and built with international sports car racing firmly in its sights.

The DB4GT prototype, DP 199, was race in the Spring 1959, driven by the inimitable Stirling Moss in the BRDC GT race at Silverstone, recording an outright victory, for the new model. Between 1959 and 1961, just 75 DB4 GT’s were produced with many being owned and driven in sports car racing, including by the renowned Essex Wire racing stable.

The DB4GT presented, Chassis 0139/GT, was delivered new to its first Surrey based owner and regularly maintained with the manufacturer’s service department at Newport Pagnell, before being released after 17 years of single ownership, to Aston Martin enthusiast Ian Warrener of Powys in Wales, passing through 3 further owners before being sold into the USA in the early 1980’s. Returning to the UK in 1989, to Philip Cowan of St Andrews in Scotland. Purchased by the last owner in 2006, the car was entrusted to Aston Martin specialist engineers R S Williams Ltd, for restoration. After completion in 2008, the car completed a tour to southern Spain and been subsequently used on occasional outings in the UK since.

DB4 GT Background info:

Using the renowned DB4’s Superleggera construction as a basis, the chassis of DB4GT’s was reconfigured with a shorter and lighter wheelbase, the engine race developed with high compression pistons, a twin ignition system and a triple set of 45mm Webber side draught carburettors, in all developing considerably more power and torque. Coupled with a David Brown close ratio 4 speed manual gearbox, optional final drive ratios and Girling disc brakes front and rear, the combination proved highly effective in period international sports car racing.
