Since its inception, the Aston Martin Vantage V8 has received numerous accolades from the press, some of which include Automobile Magazine’s "2007 All Stars," for performance, road manners and design, and Jeremy Clarkson called it the Best Looking and Best Sounding car for ’07.
Hand assembled at the Aston Martin factory in Germany, the 4.3 litre V8 produces a stout 380 HP. Although the motor was loosely based on the Jaguar AJ-V8, it’s really a completely different motor featuring a race-style dry sump system which allowed the manufacturer to lower the center of gravity in the car significantly. The overall effect was a 49/51 weight distribution that feels wonderful in the hands of an enthusiast. The cylinder block, heads, crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, cams and engine management are all Aston Martin as well. Performance aside, the Vantage V8 has wonderful road manners and constitutes a proper Grand Touring car.
Finished in Tungsten Silver over an Obsidian Black/Falcon Grey interior, this 2007 Aston Martin has traveled just under 28,000 miles since new. It was sold new by Aston Martin Los Gatos and traded back in, where it was then purchased with a CPO status by the second owner in St. Louis.
