2003 Aston Martin Vanquish
VIN SCFAC23343B500587
Orient Blue with Fawn Leather Interior

In 1998, Aston Martin displayed the Project Vantage show car at the North American Auto Show. The car made a tremendous splash as Aston’s first ever 12-cylinder car, and its aggressive styling and world-class specifications and performance indicated a new direction for Aston. In many senses, it was one of the early catalysts of the renaissance that Aston Martin is now enjoying. Enthusiasts were delighted when they heard that a variant of the Project Vantage was being readied for production. Powered by a 5.9 litre 460hp V12, the car’s performance is eye-opening, and the muscular but elegant styling has a timeless appeal that will always look good.

This particular example has been a California car since new and is currently owned by a collector. It has covered 14,400 miles from new. It is of course in very fine condition, with only a handful of blemishes. The paintwork is excellent and there is no evidence of paintwork ever having been performed, nor is there evidence of accident damage. There is a handful of small blemishes about the car, as to be expected from normal road use, including the occasional scratch and chip. The car has a clear bra which has protected the vulnerable front end, door edges, and side mirrors from road rash. The wheels are in excellent condition, with no curb rash whatsoever. There is one chip on the left rear wheel. The tires are in great shape, including the rear ones. The glass, lights and trim are all in excellent order.

The interior is also in superb shape, with almost no signs of wear or aging. The driver’s seat has light wear commensurate with mileage, but there are otherwise no flaws worth noting. Leather covers almost every surface, including the center console, dashboard, and door panels. The headliner, visors, and pillars are upholstered in suede, while there numerous attractive alloy accents such as the grab handles and emergency brake handle. The carpets and trim are all in superb shape.

The trunk and engine compartment are both in as-new condition and are extremely clean. Inside of the trunk are the original factory 6-CD changer, umbrella, navigation system, and first aid kit. The car also comes with its original books. The engine compartment is clean and completely stock, with some remarkable carbon fiber accents, including the strut tower brace. The underside is reflective of the mileage and is mostly covered, in the interest of aerodynamics.

This is a great opportunity to acquire a high performance Aston Martin in superb colors. Furthermore, with over $100,000 of depreciation already out of the way, the new owner can be sure that this car will be a rationally appealing purchase in addition to being an emotionally appealing one.
