The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was the second all-new Aston to be built at their Gaydon headquarters. Based around the already proven VH (Vertical and horizontal) platform the V8 offered performance and dimensions similar to that of the Porsche 911. The coupe was launched back in 2005 followed two years later by the roadster version. The second generation of the Vantage was introduced in 2008 and showcased the new 4.7 litre V8 engine. The new 4.7 produced 420 bhp, which was an increase of 40bhp over the out going engine. The enhancements of the new car included – DBS style dash layout, Glass key, subtle body styling refinements and all new satellite navigation.
The vehicle is situated at our Hofmann’s site in Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire and viewing is both highly recommended and very welcomed prior to the auction ending.
