Footnotes

  • With the resurrection of the 'Vantage' name in 1977, Aston Martin enthusiasts everywhere breathed a sigh of relief; previously applied to high-power versions of the DB six-cylinder cars, it had been dormant since the V8's arrival back in 1969. A heavier car than its six-cylinder predecessor, the V8 suffered as emissions legislation became ever more strangulating, leading to concern that Aston Martin's traditional performance image might be lost. The arrival of the Vantage dispelled any such worries.

    Propelling Aston's V8 back into the supercar league was a tuned version of the existing 5,340cc engine breathing through a quartet of 48mm Weber carburettors rather than the standard 42mm instruments. Valves and ports were enlarged and the camshafts changed, the end result being an estimated maximum output of around 375bhp - in Rolls-Royce fashion the factory chose not to disclose the actual figure, merely claiming that power was 'adequate'. Chassis changes were minimal apart from the adoption of bigger ventilated discs all round and low-profile Pirelli tyres. The Vantage was, nevertheless, readily distinguishable from the standard product by virtue of its blocked-off bonnet scoop, blanked air intake, front chin spoiler and lip on the boot lid.

    An AMOC concours winner at Waddesdon in 2002/2003; Upton House in October 2002; and Wimpole Hall in September 2003, as well as recipient of the John Wyer Trophy (see photographs in presentation folio), chassis number '12415' is finished in unmarked Rolls-Royce Royal Blue with dark blue-piped magnolia hide upholstery, dark blue carpeting bound in magnolia, and burr walnut veneers. The car is equipped with air conditioning; central locking; electrically operated windows and door mirrors; and Ronal alloy wheels (fitted in 2006 and a feature of later Vantages).

    This stunning Vantage was prepared to concours standards again in 2007. The car has covered little mileage since then, though it has been serviced subsequently by Aston Martin Works Service at Newport Pagnell (see bill on file dated December 2008). Its accompanying history file also contains an original owner's handbook; a list of previous keepers and copies of former registration documents; copy guarantee form; a quantity of expired MoT certificates; sundry invoices (totalling circa £35,000); and a list of 16 services from 1,467 miles to 33,764 miles. (The odometer currently displays a total of only 38,221 miles).
    The Stan West Collection purchased the Vantage at Bonhams' sale at Aston Martin Works Service in May 2010 (Lot 334). This car is still in concours condition and it is unlikely that there is another currently available detailed to this standard.
