Aston Martin Vantage/Volante Vantage 2003 for sale

2018 Dec 27
$ 42,500

Overview

Purchased new August 5th, 2003 by the previous, celebrity owner. He was Southern California’s pre-eminent broadcaster, multi radio station owner and a serious car collector. Prior to passing, he had a huge, museum collection of cars with a full-time staff of six to keep them all ‘up to snuff’.

My car has only 13,475 original miles, the condition is exactly as you would expect and comes loaded with options and accident/damage-free CARFAX and AUTOCHECK history reports. The May 2018 inspection/maintenance by Charlotte Aston Martin included new fuel pumps. It all works, even the clock.

In original, almost unmarked Ballantyne Blue with gorgeous Ivory with Fern Green piping interior and Tan mohair convertible top; she’s fitted with the expensive and rare, optional, 5-spoke, Aston Martin GT wheels; original boot cover and bag; original manuals and sales promotion book; original battery conditioner; original umbrella; original and optional Aston Martin Premier audio with satellite navigation and 6-disc CD player and a toolkit, etc.

With a 6-liter, 48 valve, quadruple camshaft, 60-degree V-12 engine with an original output of 420 bhp and 400 lb/ft and the 5-Speed, ZF automatic transmission giving 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds and a top speed 165 mph. Of approx 7,000 built from March 1999 - December 2003 (an average of around 1,400 a year), only 448 were built after this fabulous example.

Quoted in “Hagarty Weekly News” of November 8, 2017 as “THE BUY” under the title “Three British Sports Cars to Buy, Hold or Sell”, I quote:-

“You don’t have to have a James Bond complex to want an Aston Martin. It’s a car that never goes out of style, and because the gorgeous shape of an Aston has remained fairly consistent over the years, a DB7 that is two decades old can make you feel like a celebrity. Speaking of the DB7, it is currently the most affordable Aston Martin on the market. It was also the most prolific model in the company’s history, with 7,000 built when production ended in the mid-2000s, so good examples are relatively easy to find. Prices have now fully depreciated and have even started their creep upward into collector car territory, with Hagerty Price Guide values up 2 percent and buyer interest up 20 percent over the past 12 months. Yet prices are still low enough that people shopping for a well-optioned new Mustang or lightly used Corvette might also consider a DB7. Most people would choose the Mustang or the Corvette, but plenty of people love the idea of a screaming V-12 enough to turn a blind eye to a new-car warranty. Getting to tell people that you drive an Aston is a plus, too.”
