Aston Martin 1997 Vantage V600 £139,000
The Aston Martin Vantage was revealed to the world at the 1992 Birmingham Motor Show as the successor to the Virage, being more powerful and more agile. The standard Vantage used a twin supercharged version of the 5.3 litre Aston Martin V8 engine delivering 550 bhp and only 236 cars were produced! However a more powerful version developing 600bhp labelled the 'V600' was also offered, capable of 200 mph and a 0-60 time of under 4 seconds! This car was the most powerful Aston Martin ever produced until the advent of the One-77!
This V600 was originally registered in August 1977, and although has two previous keepers, has remained in the same ownership since July 1999. Finished in British Racing Green with a Tan and Forest interior, it is a truly superb car. It has a very comprehensive service history with Aston Martin and was last serviced and MOT'd in February 2014 at 30,900 miles. The car also took part in a promotional track day at Rockingham in 2001 hosted by Sir Sterling Moss and Murray Walker. Moss drove this car with the owner and both he and Murray Walker signed the owners handbooks!
