Introduced in 1993 as a replacement to the Virage, the new Aston Martin Vantage had the benefit of new Ford funding and R&D to make significant changes to performance and driveability. The V8 engine was further developed with the addition of two superchargers and the latest engine management systems to give it an impressive output of 550bhp, 0-60 in 4.5 secs and 190mph top speed! Making it one of the fastest road cars in the world! Although the new car had the same wheelbase as the Virage the chassis was extensively lightened and significantly re-designed at the rear to vastly improve the cars handling. The new Vantage also benefitted from a new body design to give it a fresher and more purposeful stance and of course being an Aston Martin, new levels of interior comfort were also attained!
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.
This V550 was first registered in June 1997 having been specially ordered by its first owner Mr Munroe in McLaren Carbon in order to match his McLaren F1! Factory extras included sports exhaust, traction control, high level stop lamp and multi-change CD player. The car has changed hands just twice since then having been with the current keeper since 2003 and comes with a comprehensive and well documented service history.
