Finished in elegant Antrim Blue metallic coachwork with Parchment sport seats, piped in Dark Blue. Top roll trimmed in Royal Blue with matching Blue Wilton carpets bound in leather piping. Headlining, A pillars, grab handles and sunvisors all trimmed exquisitely in Parchment Alcantara – headlining ribbed.

Benefitting from host of non-standard options which include heated, reclining and massaging seats, heated head lamps and front windscreen – for the icy winter morning. Traction control and ABS added for safety and tyre pressure monitors for added peace of mind. 

This example rolled off the Newport Pagnel production line on 31st July 1998 in V550 Vantage specification. Suppled new via Auto Performance Paris it ordered in left hand drive and factory manual. The Vantage was built to order of its first owner, Christen Sveaas, industrialist and world renowned art collector – original pre delivery inspection sheet and order form are both on file. Fast forward to 2006 the car was acquired by a UK collector who dispatched the Vantage to Aston Martin Works Service to prepare the car to V600 specification (Dynamic Pack). The works commenced on 16th May 2006, in addition to these works the Vantage was converted from left hand drive to right hand drive. All of these works were carried out by the men who had built the car originally. On file we have the complete invoices (17 pages) listing every item of work carried out. Since works were completed the car has covered just 7,831 miles.

Turn the key and watch the gauges spring into life, once the engine is run up to temperature point the v600 in the direct of where you want to head and watch the turbo gauge fire into fire and propel you down the down – fast than its Italian rival! 

These cars are highly undervalued and in our view one of the most underrated super cars of its day – hand built by craft man.
