SUMMARY

An early-production example of Aston's remarkable V12 Grand Tourer in a very rare factory colour.

DESCRIPTION

  • In 1999, the more powerful DB7 V12 Vantage was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show
  • Its 5.9-litre 48-valve V12 engine produced 420bhp, fed through either a TREMEC T-56 6-speed manual or a ZF 5HP30 5-speed automatic gearbox
  • Supplied new in 1999, this very early UK-specification Vantage V12 Automatic has been used sparingly in recent years, completing less than 7,000 miles in the last ten years
  • It's finished in the very rare factory colour combination of Sutherland Red with black leather seats and was specified from new with 18" alloy wheels
  • Other factory options include a multi-CD player, heated electric seats, Alcantara headlining, full walnut dash, electric mirrors and air conditioning
  • Supplied with its original handbooks, stamped service book (23 Aston Martin dealer and specialist stamps) tool kit and both sets of keys
  • Very sensibly guided, this is an excellent opportunity to enter the rarefied world of Aston Martin ownership
