Launched in October 1992, the supercharged V8 Vantage entered production in 1993 answering the call for more power to propel the then current Virage. Extensively re-engineered from the chassis up, the only common components were the doors and roof. With a new architecture chassis, a de-dion rear axle, heavily revised front suspension, brakes and torque tube transmissions to facilitate the twin supercharged 550 bhp, V8 engine. The sum of the parts, created a wholly different car.

The 1997 example we are pleased to offer, finished in deep Antrim Blue with Magnolia hides was ordered from new and maintained, by Stratstone of Wilmslow. Fitted post production with the popular 4 speed automatic transmission, the car remained in single ownership for 15 years and 8,000 miles before changing hands for the first time. Subsequently maintained by respected marque specialists, the car has now covered just 14,400 miles.

With 280 Vantages built, these distinguished and commanding performance cars have firmly established themselves, not only as sought after classics but as the very last product of the coach built era of hand built cars. Designed, production engineered and constructed by Aston Martins artisans, craftsmen and engineers, at the now closed Newport Pagnell factory.

Prepared and serviced in our workshops, this magnificent example of the twin Supercharged Vantage, is supplied with the original owners handbook and service records, build data, 12 months warranty and MoT certificate.
