The Aston Martin V8 4.7 Vantage Roadster Sportshift offered here at Hofmann’s is a 2011 “11 plate” finished in Onyx Black metallic with Obsidian Black leather interior. Having covered just 65099 miles this stunning example boasts a full and complete service history most recently carried out by us in June 2020 and will be fully serviced and new MOT applied before the lucky new owner takes delivery.
Most importantly, the clutch was replaced with a much improved Twin plate clutch in August 2020 by David Appleby Engineering in Northampton and now makes for a vastly better drive and smoother change.
The optional specification highlights include- Carbon Fibre Lightweight sports seats, 700w Premium audio system, Bluetooth telephone preparation, Cruise control, Piano black pack, bright finish front grille, Front & rear parking sensors, Garage door opener, Memory seats, N400 door sill design, Satellite navigation, Clear rear lamps, Sports pack & 19” twin 5 Spoke design wheels. Other notable features are the benefit of a Bamford Rose lightened flywheel and Sports exhaust Catalysts.
The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was the second all-new Aston to be built at their Gaydon headquarters. Based around the already proven VH (Vertical and horizontal) platform the V8 offered performance and dimensions similar to that of the Porsche 911. The coupe was launched back in 2005 followed two years later by the roadster version. The second generation of the Vantage was introduced in 2008 and showcased the new 4.7 litre V8 engine. The new 4.7 produced 420 bhp, which was an increase of 40bhp over the out going engine. The enhancements of the new car included – DBS style dash layout, Glass key, subtle body styling refinements and all new satellite navigation.
As with all our vehicles the car will go through a comprehensive presales inspection by one of our Aston Martin experienced technicians.
