2012 Aston Martin V8 Vantage
A true classic
This is one of the most muscular and beautifully proportioned coupes to be adorned with the Aston Martin wings. And this example is certainly one of very few available in Australia with a sporty six-speed manual gearbox.
So here we have it: a low slung silver coupe with snarling naturally aspirated V8, rear drive purity, backside low to the ground driving position, a swap-it-yourself six speeder with three pedal-fun, and an Alcantara steering wheel so pleasing to touch that you’ll want to bury your fingernails into it. Enough said!
The right credentials
As well as promising loads of enjoyment, you should know that the 2012 model Vantage also benefited from major technical updates included stronger brakes, improved steering and all round better suspension tuning to give it added credentials.
Million dollar feeling
The Meteorite Silver paint work is A1, with the magnum silver meshes on the bonnet and side strakes plus chrome grille bars adding a touch of class. The interior is in pristine condition with Obsidian black leather and silver stitching throughout. The looks are all there and driveline is a winner. Swapping the cogs yourself with the atmo 4.7 V8 bellowing with intent will make any red-blooded enthusiast feel like a million dollars.
Features: Exhaust bypass switch, 700w Premium Audio with Dolby ProLogic, red calipers, Bluetooth telephone preparation, auto dimming interior mirror, memory seats with heating, clear rear lamps and 19-inch V-spoke graphite alloy wheels with polished surface finish.
