We are pleased to offer 2007 Aston Martin V8 Vantage s/n C05535, a one-owner Aston. Finished from new in an elegant “Elusive Blue” with a Caspian Blue dash, center console, door inner panels, upper rear shelf and trim panels with Sandstorm leather seats and lower rear shelf over luxurious Royal Blue carpets. When introduced in 2005, the V8 Vantage represented a completely new generation of aluminum-composite bodied and chassis Aston Martin supercars, thanks to its stunning bodywork styled by Ian Callum and Henrik Fisker. The Aston’s angular body and classic GT-coupe proportions—long hood, short rear deck, laid back windshield and aggressive stance personified state of the art exotic machinery, unique British engineering, race victories at the 24 hours of Le Mans and the personal transportation of one James Bond. Bulging rear fenders cover extra-wide rear wheels (the fronts are 8.5″ wide, the rears are 9.5″). Power is put to the ground by a high-revving, all-alloy, quad-overhead-cam, 32-valve, 4.3 liter, dry-sump V8 delivering 380 horsepower with 305 pound-feet of torque, mated with a traditional three-pedal, six-speed manual gearbox. With all its cylinder bores behind the front axle, the V8 Vantage is, by definition, a mid-engine car while the rear-mounted transaxle also improves front leg room and weight distribution. Weight saving is a priority, thanks to a carbon fiber driveshaft, door handles, front fascia, hood, door surrounds, diffuser, trunk lid and trunk enclosure, while the rest of the body shell and chassis are in aluminum. The suspension is equally exotic, with forged aluminum double wishbones, aluminum bodied shocks and 19 inch wheels with 245/40 ZR 19 front and 285/35 ZR 19 rear Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. Performance is excellent with a 0-60 in 4.5 seconds and an absolute top speed of 185 mph.

Aston Martin V8 Vantage s/n C05535 is a one-owner California-based car with just 11,878 miles. Built in Feb, 2007, imported by Aston in March of 2007 and sold new in July 2007 to its first and only owner. As would be expected of an enthusiast-owned, special interest automobile with such low mileage, this example is cosmetically near perfect, with only minor scratches on the right rear lower fender as it curves under the car. The body, paint, glass, wheels, upholstery, and all controls are in exceptional condition. The car has always been garaged and well cared for mechanically. All paperwork back to the window sticker and all service records are on file, from its first service at 1,078 miles in Oct., 2007 to the present day. This is a great opportunity to acquire a meticulously-maintained, low-mile, one-owner V8 Vantage in irreproachable condition and in elegant Aston Martin colors. Complete with the owner’s handbook, the trickle charger, both keys, both remotes, all service records from new and a clean Carfax, a virtually as-new car that’s ready to enjoy.

V8 Vantage s/n C05535 has almost all the possible options including a contemporary paint color ($750); contemporary interior color ($750); Piano Black Veneer ($750) Bright finish grille ($450); Xenon HID headlights ($795), front wheel stone guard ($295); Powerfold exterior mirrors ($450); 19-inch alloy wheels ($1,595); Pirelli Sport tires ($750); colored brake calipers ($450); a garage door opener with auto dim mirror ($295); heated front seats ($450); a battery tender ($150); satellite navigation system ($2,655); a first aid kit ($145); an alarm upgrade ($295); an Aston Martin umbrella and holder ($230); a premium audio system ($1,595); memory seats ($450); cruise control ($450) and Bluetooth ($750). The total window sticker was $129,050.00.

The V8 Vantage is a seamless example of luxury meeting performance. The V8 Vantage’s cockpit is intimate, certainly, but not cramped. There’s enough room for the passenger to stretch legs and lower the seatback past 45 degrees. The seats are impressive: firm and supportive, with all the bolster needed anywhere but on a race track, and comfortable for the long haul. There’s also a decent amount of space behind the seats, and it’s easy for the driver to reach with space for a very large briefcase or good-sized shopping bags. There’s a glass button resembling the face of a fine watch at the top of the center stack. It’s a start button. Turn the ignition key and the start button glows red. Press the button for a second and the V8 burbles to life, idling in a low vroooom that sounds as sweet from the driver’s seat as it does standing outside the car. The engine compartment is all original and very clean, as would be expected for a car with such low mileage. The trunk is like new and usefully shaped. Its practicality is further enhanced by the hatch back configuration of the lid, which permits easy access.

Aston Martin V8 Vantage s/n C05535 needs nothing but a new owner and offers modern supercar performance, packaging and presence. Complete with all paperwork back to the window sticker, all service records and correspodence since new, the owner’s handbook, the trickle charger, both keys, both remotes and a clean Carfax. Thanks to the miracle of depreciation V8 Vantage s/n C05535 is priced at a very affordable $49,950 or best offer
