Description

Unveiled at the 2001 Geneva Motor Show, the Ian Callum designed, Vanquish was an instant sales success and the fact that it was James Bond's transport of choice only added to the appeal. Featuring a 6.0 litre V12 generating nearly 450bhp mated to a 6-speed paddle shift gearbox, the car was the top of the range for Aston throughout its 7 years of production. When Pierce Brosnan stepped out of his Vanquish in the 2002 film 'Die Another Day', the legend was created and immediately the successor to the Virage was desired by every car enthusiast throughout the world.

This particular UK-supplied Vanquish is finished in Oyster Silver with black and ivory leather, and has covered 59,300 miles from new with a main dealer service history from day one. First registered on 12th December 2001, there are 13 service stamps in the service book, mostly from Aston Martin main dealers, and the last service was carried out on 25th August 2015 by The Aston Workshop at a cost of £3,300.

Supplied with its original hand-pack, service books and current MoT certificate, the car is reported to drive well and we welcome any inspection of this vehicle. Buyers should be aware that the number plate (V666AMV) is not included in the sale but is available by separate negotiation. Already starting to appreciate, the Vanquish is tipped as a long term investment classic by all the current knowledgeable pundits....and this one is the same colour that 007 chose!
