A quintessential ‘Brute in a Suite’, the 1993-2000 Aston Martin Vantage V550 was the last model produced entirely by hand at the Newport Pagnell factory, with just 280 examples being built before the factory being closed and remodelled, for Vanquish production. An anachronism of its day, the Vantage V550’s only rival, combining the level of luxury and performance of the Vantage V550, was Bentley’s Continental T, the most expensive production car of the day.
The wonderfully preserved car we are again pleased to offer, having supplied it to its two former owners, has a superb service record with ourselves, Aston Martin Works and AM main dealers.
