2003 ASTON MARTIN VANQUISH

KEY FACTS

  • An elegant, low-mileage example of Aston Martin’s last hand-built grand tourer, presented in a lesser-seen hue and with low mileage from new.
  • Under the bonnet sits the 5.9-litre naturally aspirated V12, producing 460bhp which is delivered to the rear wheels through a six-speed automated manual transmission with paddle shift.
  • The odometer displays just 38,834 miles, which is fully supported by the car’s maintenance history.
  • This Vanquish has been with its current owner for the last six years, and is supported by a full Aston Martin main dealer and specialist service history.
  • It has been carefully specified to mimic the car driven by Piers Brosnan in the 2002 James Bond film Die Another Day.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • The car is finished in the Porsche hue of Seal Grey metallic over a two-tone Charcoal Grey leather-trimmed cabin with a grey Alcantara headlining.
  • The factory specification includes a Linn audio system with CD autochanger and DVD-based satellite navigation, reversing sensors, electrically operated and heated front seats, climate control, and a boot-mounted umbrella.
  • It rides on its original 19-inch alloy wheels housing red brake callipers.
  • The cherished registration ‘J80 AMV’ is included in the sale.
  • Also included in the sale are the owner’s manual and service book, various invoices, the original ‘V12 Vanquish’ document holder, trickle charger, warning triangle, umbrella, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, tyre sealant and towing eye.

CONDITION

  • There is no known bodywork damage.
  • The Seal Grey metallic bodywork is described by the vendor as being in very good overall condition, with some minor stone chips to the front end of the car, roof and rear arches, a few imperfections above the driver’s door handle, and a chip on the rear bumper. There are also three small paintwork blemishes on the passenger door which have been professionally touched in.
  • The exterior trim is in good order, though there is visible condensation within the headlight units, as well as light pitting on the brightwork on the boot lid and the fuel cap.
  • The grey leather-trimmed interior presents well with only some modest signs of use, including minor creasing on the seats and a handful of imperfections on the lower part of the centre console and gearshift paddles. There is reported to be some slight discolouration on the passenger seat bolster.
  • There are no known mechanical or electrical faults.
  • The car’s last MOT test was conducted on 27 September 2021 at 38,863 miles, resulting in a clean pass after the front suspension arm ball joint dust covers and rear upper anti-roll bar ball joint dust covers were replaced.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • This Vanquish’s most recent routine maintenance was carried out in August 2021 at 38,797 miles by Chiltern Aston Centre, whose technicians replaced the top ball joints and track rod ends.
  • Prior to this, in May 2019 at 38,624 miles, Chiltern Aston Centre performed an annual service, as well as replacing the fuel pumps, coolant hoses, front brake discs and pads, brake fluid, front and rear tyres, exhaust clamps, drive belt with tensioner and idlers, and the clutch spigot bearing.
  • In September 2016, Stratstone Aston Martin supplied and fitted a new exhaust system, and in May 2016, they carried out a gearbox enhancement.
  • Previously, in May 2014 at 37,268 miles, Stratstone Aston Martin carried out the extensive 97,500-Mile Service.
  • The owner has spent over £16,500 in servicing and maintenance with Aston Martin specialists in the last three years alone.
