Meteorite Silver | Coupé | 6 Speed Manual | 4.7 litre V8 | 23,619 kms | SOLD
Catering to all true piston heads, there is nothing more appetizing than a car that’s rear-wheel drive, sporting a naturally aspirated front-engine throaty V8 with an exhaust note you never tire of and ... Breathe ... A manual gearbox. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage is not only a desire, it’s a necessity.
In May of 2008 Aston Martin announced its all new technological updates for the Vantage, including improvements to the engine, transmissions and suspension. It received all new Bilstein dampers, lightweight flywheel and an all new designed fire-breathing handcrafted 4.7L V8 producing 420hp launching the Aston from 0 – 100 in just 4.3 seconds.
Available here is an Australian delivered 2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage ordered in Meteorite Silver over Obsidian Black leather trim which has travelled just 22,000kms since new and today still in exceptional condition.

A stick-shift truly transforms the drive, the 6-Speed transmission selection feels mechanical and rewarding with every change followed by a bellow from arguably one of the best exhaust notes in existence. The steering is direct but light and the sports suspension is firm yet absorbs the imperfections on the road.
Although the Vantage is a sportscar rival to the Porsche 911, its hereditary roots derive from its gran-touring siblings. The cabin is comfortable, spacious and the driver is greeted with a myriad of top-shelf textiles, solid glass and metal switch gear, alcantara headlining, plush-pile carpets and even machined aluminum gauge faces.
Storage space is plentiful, with enough room for travel luggage and golf clubs, perfect for weekend trips away.
The quality craftsmanship continues onto the exterior, the beautiful unblemished coachwork contrasts the stunning lines of each aluminum panel, even the side-gills and Aston's signature front grille are real metal, not chromed plastic.
Complete with two keys, the original leather-bound logbooks complete with full Aston Martin service history this Vantage has been well preserved.
With such low kilometers and featuring a rare manual transmission makes this car the perfect weekender, tourer or even a one-way ticket to liven up your daily commute. With its desirable engine specification and transmission this Aston Martin V8 Vantage won't last long.
