Aston Martin V8 Vantage V550


Chassis # R70118

With fewer than 250 built from 1993 to 1999, this fantastic example of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage V550 we are proud to offer is beautifully finished in Aston Martin Racing Green and complemented with a Fawn leather interior. Earning its name from the twin-supercharged engines producing 550bhp and 500lb ft of torque, the Vantage was built to be driven and this example, having covered almost 17,000 miles, is a statement to that.

Offered as a six-speed manual and with speeds approaching 200mph, the sight of a V550 on full throttle is enough to get anyone’s heart racing. This truly impressive car creates an unbelievable experience for those who are able to get behind the wheel and with a 0-60mph of 4.6 seconds you can understand why.

Having a deep front spoiler to channel air to the radiator, the air then exiting via bonnet louvres and the classic Aston Martin side vents. The V8 Vantage V550 was also fitted with 362mm-diameter ventilated front discs by AP Racing and, at the time, these were the largest fitted to a road car. Inside the cabin showcases the true craftsmanship of those that worked at Newport Pagnell at the time, with an all-leather interior that perfectly dressed the supportive seats for the driver and passenger.

Presented in superb condition with its original book pack, a main agent stamped service book and history file, this rare example of a Vantage V550 will be a pleasure to drive for its future owner.
