2007 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster

Highlights

  • 4.3-litre V8 engine and 6-speed manual gearbox
  • Impressive history file
  • Last serviced in June 2024 by an Aston Martin Specialist
  • Recent work includes £2,500 spent on the roof

The Appeal


Often praised as one of the greatest 21st century tourers - and prized as one of, if not the most successful car in the firm's history - the V8 Vantage has rightfully become the stuff of legend; a car that was a future classic right out of the gate. Exhilarating performance, distinguished lines and plenty of classic callbacks make this Ian Callum design a true masterstroke.

This 2007 example, finished in a striking Elusive Blue livery, is an excellent ambassador to the car's legendary stature. It's been wonderfully cared for, with plenty of service history and records of money spent in recent years. The keeper has enjoyed around 1,800 trouble-free miles over the past four years, and has recently treated it to a comprehensive service - with only 250 miles covered since.

Complete with a very apt private plate, this excellent Aston Vantage is ready and waiting to delight its lucky new owner. If you've always wondered what all of the fuss about the Vantage is, it's the perfect opportunity to get behind the wheel and find out for yourself.

The Condition

  • Striking Elusive Blue paint

  • Original dark black hood fits and works well, having had £2,500 spent recently to keep it in fine fettle

  • The fit is good, and the roof raises and stows correctly
  • One small nick in the rubber seal in the C pillar area, but no other damage
  • Excellent panel fit and consistent gaps
  • Black 19-inch wheels with machined faces and Aston Martin centre caps

  • Smart Dark Blue Leather interior
  • Attractive dark blue and black colour combination of the interior
  • Black leather steering wheel is clean and tidy with no major wear
  • Clean instrumentation with no warning lights
