This 2016 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is a pristine one-owner example of a thrilling British supercar, presented with very low mileage and a striking factory specification. Under the bonnet sits an astounding hand-built 5.9-litre naturally aspirated ‘AM28’ V12 engine, with the optional AMR Performance Pack that increases power to 595bhp, paired with a seven-speed dog-leg manual transmission. The odometer currently indicates just 1,928 miles from new.

The standard V12 Vantage S is one of the British marque’s most renowned supercars, but the AMR Performance Pack adds cast magnesium inlet manifolds to improve air flow to the cylinder heads, a full switchable titanium exhaust system to minimise weight and improve gas flow, and a redesigned matte carbon-fibre rear diffuser to combat turbulence at the rear end, making this V12 Vantage S the ultimate enthusiast’s Aston Martin. The mechanical upgrades mean the car has the same power as the GT12 model, with a 30bhp gain over the standard Vantage S.

First registered in September 2016, the car was supplied by Aston Martin Sevenoaks and has now been with its original owner for four years, who has covered less than 2,000 miles in this astonishing machine, but who has kept it impeccably maintained.

The V12’s bodywork is in excellent condition, the Stratus White paintwork presents beautifully, and the carbon-fibre grille surround, rear diffuser and other trims remain in virtually as-new condition – with the exception of a small split in the front spoiler. The car rides on 19-inch alloy wheels with five twin-spokes, sat in front of bold yellow brake callipers and substantial carbon-ceramic brake discs.

In the cabin, the Obsidian Black leather seats come with a white pinstripe down the centre panels and the Aston Martin emblem stitched into the headrests. The plush leather continues across the dashboard, gear lever and gaiter, and the steering wheel features Alcantara trim. There is a gloss Piano Black finish for the centre console, which remains free of scratches. As with the exterior, the cabin trims remain in superb condition, commensurate with the very low mileage. Factory-fitted equipment includes climate control, cruise control, rear parking sensors, and a pop-up infotainment system with satellite navigation, DAB digital radio, Bluetooth and USB connectivity.

Despite the low mileage, this car benefits from annual servicing from new, and it will be handed over to the next owner fresh from its 2020 service at Kent High Performance Cars, including the peace of mind of a 3,000-mile / three-month warranty against major mechanical failure. The previous service was undertaken in August 2019 at 1,736 miles, also by Kent High Performance Cars. Prior to this, the car was serviced in September 2018 and 2017 by Aston Martin Sevenoaks.

The most recent MOT test was on 28 September 2020 at 1,928 miles, which resulted in a clean pass with no advisories or defects noted. The wheels are wrapped in the car’s original Pirelli P Zero tyres all round, which are all in superb condition, with around 7mm of tread remaining at the front and 5.5mm left at the rear.

Accompanying the vehicle are the original Aston Martin handbook, stamped service book, sales invoice and spec sheet in their original leather wallet, as well as all prior maintenance invoices and two keys, including one glass key.

This Aston Martin V12 Vantage S with the AMR Performance Pack is an astonishing British supercar. Boasting the higher power output of 595bhp, as well as the desirable seven-speed manual transmission, this is likely to prove the collector’s choice in years to come – just as the V600 Vantages of the 1990s are sought after today. With just one owner from new and very low mileage, this is a stunning GT that will thrill and delight its next custodian.
