With only 2,980 actual miles from new, this gorgeous example may be the finest in the world. There were only 50
manual 6-speed Vantage V12 coupes imported, so it is safe to say that this is an extremely rare car here in the
States.

This Aston Martin was purchased new in Atlanta by a collector that had an eclectic collection of exotic supercars.
They were all kept in a climate controlled showroom and driven sparingly. Car has been recently serviced with a
brand new full size Interstate battery and a fresh set of Michelin Z rated Super Sports have been installed.

She is in as close to as-new condition as you could ever hope to find for a 15 year old car. If you ever wanted one
when they were new with a manual 6-speed, but couldn't afford it, here is your opportunity. This is a genuine
British supercar by all modern standards.

This car features four important options: The burled walnut trim package, the spare tire, the walnut steering wheel
and the steel coolant overflow purge tank that was a $1000 replacement over the original plastic unit. The cost of
a bespoke walnut steering wheel ordered presently from Aston for this car is $3,500. The spare tire kit included a
complete trunk shelf and liner kit. The tool kit is present and in unopened containers.

The color is pearlescent silver metallic and the interior is black leather with cream leather inserts. Every panel
in the interior is leather including the entire dashboard, the entire seats from front to back, entire door panels
and even the rear partial shelf. The leather is sumptuous and exudes the highest most luxurious standard. The
carpet is the highest quality British Wilton wool. The all leather interior aroma is intoxicating and is overall
exquisite.

Additional interesting information. This car's transmission is the world class Tremec T56 6-speed manual shift. It
is the same style that is used in Corvettes and modern Mustangs. Shifting is smooth and precise. Changing a clutch
is easy and straight forward by simply removing the transmission...unlike the DB9 with a torque tube that requires
several people to man handle and two days repair time. It uses a standard style clutch that lasts and lasts vs. the
DB9 that may last only 10k miles at best depending on your driving style. This is the best bonus of this car from a
mechanical repair aspect...and is added to the positive experience of DB7 ownership. Involvement with Ford in this
era had some great benefits. Being a retired Jaguar tech and extreme gearhead, I love the engineering that is
straight forward. I wish that they would have used this system in the Jaguar XK8...but then, that would have been
too much competition for the DB7 with the manual transmission...as Aston, Jaguar and Ford were all intertwined at
that time.



The car has always been in the South. It has never had any salty road exposure and most likely has never been
driven in the rain. The paint is flawless as in no chips, dings, dents or repairs whatsoever.

Jaguar F-Type squares off against Porsche 911, Aston V8 Vantage with Chris Harris

Fri, 21 Jun 2013 19:59:00 EST

Chris Harris is back on the job, taking on really really difficult car questions like: Which enormously sexy and good-to-drive, high-performance convertible is the top of the heap? As one of the hottest cars in the luxury space right now, the Jaguar F-Type S is, of course, in on the action. Competition comes in the form of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster and the Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet. Sun-loving CEOs who despise test-driving need look no further.
Scroll on below for a fully featured (with a running time of more than 20 minutes) comparison video. Harris does his best to entertain - in a typically nitpicky and made-up-British-words fashion - and the moving pictures are lovely to look at. Kick back, pour a pint and get your weekend started off right.

Aston Martin and Lotus each issue recalls

Sun, 14 Oct 2012 16:03:00 EST

A pair of head-turning high performance cars are catching some attention off a different kind, in the form of safety recalls. Aston Martin and Lotus have issued recalls for the V12 Vantage Coupe and Evora, respectively.
Aston Martin's affects 169 examples of the 2009-2012 V12 Vantage Coupe. It concerns the tire-pressure monitoring system, and is less a malfunction than it is a compliance issue. The TPMS does not alert the driver until the front tire is more than 25 percent below the recommended cold tire pressure. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 138 states that the alarm must sound when tire pressure is "equal to or less than either the pressure 25 percent below" the recommended cold inflation pressure. To address the issue, Aston Martin will notify owners and reprogram the software, free of charge.
As for Lotus, 80 supercharged Evoras have been recalled, all built between February and September, 2011. The problem involves an engine-mounted oil feed pipe, which could rupture, causing loss of engine oil or a possible fire if the oil sprays onto a hot engine.

Nissan could have bought a stake in Aston Martin as early as 2012

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 14:15:00 EST

Aston Martin has a very interesting future ahead of it. While the British brand appeared to be struggling with aging tech for a while, fresh investment from Daimler may have shown a light toward the future with the brand getting engines and electronics from them. Also, former Renault-Nissan top exec Andy Palmer has jumped ship from the French/Japanese automaker to become CEO of the much smaller sports car company. Interestingly, though, new reports from unnamed Nissan sources have indicated that Palmer has been pushing to work with AM for years.
Three unnamed company insiders told Reuters that Palmer made attempts to convince Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn in 2012 and 2013 to invest in Aston Martin, but his proposals were shot down both times for unspecified reasons, according to Automotive News. "We looked carefully at the proposal but we passed on it," said one of the sources.
You can easily see why Palmer was eying Aston Martin even back in 2012. It's no secret that the British sports car mavens were in need of extra funding, well before the Daimler investment. Building vehicles these days is only getting more expensive with stronger safety and emissions requirements. Just look at the brand's desperate hope to get a side-impact crash exemption to keep selling its models in the US as an example.
