1999 Aston Martin Vantage V550
Location: United Kingdom
We are delighted to offer this sensational, collector grade, left hand drive, 1999 V8 Vantage V550, presented in immaculate ‘concours’ condition, having covered just 6,380 km’s from new.
Launched in October 1992, the supercharged V8 Vantage entered production in 1993 answering the call for more power to propel the then current Virage. Extensively re-engineered from the chassis up, the only common components were the doors and roof. With a new architecture chassis, a de-dion rear axle, heavily revised front suspension, brakes and torque tube transmissions to facilitate the twin supercharged 550 bhp, V8 engine. The sum of the parts, created a wholly different car.
With 233 Vantages built, of which just 97 were in LHD configuration, these distinguished and commanding performance cars have firmly established themselves, not only as sought-after classics but as the very last product of the coach-built era. Designed, production engineered and constructed by Aston Martins artisans, craftsmen and engineers, at the now closed Newport Pagnell factory.
This late production example, Chassis 700216, is finished in Pentland Green with Tan hides, piped Forest Green, 1 of only 2 cars built in this colour combination. Supplied new to Germany in September 1999 and used sparingly by its three former keepers. Maintained by Aston Martin agents and respected marque specialists, including its most recent service at Aston Martin Works, this car is in exceptional condition throughout.
Prepared and serviced in our workshops, this magnificent example of the twin Supercharged Vantage, is supplied with German registration papers, the original Owners handbook, spare keys and service records, build data and 12 months warranty.
