The 2002 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish has been a classic from day one. Built to take on the best grand touring exotics from around the world, this has the undeniable mix of style and performance that only a true Aston can deliver. So no matter if it's the 6.0-liter V12 power or the coordinated leather interior, this Vanquish will have you hooked.
The V12 Vanquish was a return to world-class Aston Martin touring cars, and this one really does it best. After all, you know this was squarely aimed to take down Ferraris and Lamborghinis with a color name like Toro Red. The original paint has a terrific radiance in the sunshine, which is what you get with a cherished low-mileage instant classic like this example. This well-respected feeling is seen throughout the car. The aggressive body lines with flared fenders remain crisp. The headlight covers recall some of the best classic racers and remain crystal clear today. The 19-inch factory alloys look like they have never seen a curb. Even with this much appeal, and the popularity that came from being featured in James Bond's Die Another Day, Aston never bowed to mass production. That's why there were less than 1,500 V12 Vanquish coupes produced over a five-year run.
Grand touring comfort means absolute luxury for two people and the right space to carry their luggage. Gray is a very British color, and Aston Martin knows how to do it with style. The two-tone leather is like a wave that starts on the door panel, and wraps around the rear storage shelf until in settles back on the opposite door. The dash, center console, and seats follow this same color theme. And speaking of the seats, they have been engineered so that you and your passenger can find the individual ideal balance of performance bolstering and all-day comfort. And of course, like a true Aston, there's a ton of luxury features, including automatic climate control, power windows, keyless entry, power locks, power mirrors, dual airbags, power steering, a premium AM/FM/CD/cassette stereo, cruise control, and navigation. Of course, when you push the start button, see the gauges dance, and hear the motor roar to life, your senses know this is far more than just a luxury machine.
The 6.0-liter V12 motor is part of Aston Martin's world-class package. The original powerhouse is nestled into the sleek body so snugly, that you realize Aston snuck all the power into the engine bay they possibly could. And because this has spent its life so far as a cherished toy, everything under the hood still looks fresh. But don't let this ultra clean presentation keep you from adding miles to the odometer. After all, this coupe is a true driver's machine. The fuel-injected V12 sings a 460 hp symphony, and you control it through the electronically operated six-speed manual transmission. That means the total control of a true manual, but with clutch pedal replaced by F1-style paddle shifters on the steering wheel. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll see nothing but flat panels for better aerodynamics – another race-inspired piece that proves how serious a performance machine this is. But you'll also be able to spot all the right features, like the fully independent sports suspension, grippy Pirelli P-Zero tires, and the vented four-wheel disc brakes.
Complete with owner's manual and Aston's battery tender, this is a very well-presented low-mileage rarity. Don't miss your opportunity, call today!
