1994 Aston Martin Vantage V550   £229,000


This V550 was originally registered in September 1994 in its original colour of Snowdon White to first owner Adam Clayton, bass guitarist of Irish rock band U2. Clayton kept the car for seven years using it mainly at his house in France but keeping it maintained in the UK by our very own Ian Mason. The car had only completed 4,000 miles when he parted company with it in November 2001, when it came into the hands of John Keevill of Tower Leasing, an equipment leasing company. Although he only owned the car for two short years Mr Keevill did in that time have the car re-painted in his preferred Buckingham Green by Aston Martin Works Service. In March 2004 it became the property of Mr Simpson a country house estate and holiday park owner from Devon at which point it had completed a mere 10,000 miles. Mr Simpson kept the car for nearly twelve years having it regularly maintained by Aston Martin Works, Grange Aston Martin, local specialists and latterly Wren Classics. The last recorded keeper acquired this Vantage V550 in August 2016 at 22,000 miles and has covered less than 200 miles since purchase.
This very rare and sought after supercar is offered in superb condition and comes with a comprehensive ownership and maintenance history.
These enormously impressive cars are very rare with only 236 examples ever made and not surprisingly they have become very collectable as significant models in the Aston Martin range.
