Detailed History
The Aston Martin Vantage V550 was a unique car when new that formed its own place in the specialist car market, and little has changed in the impact they have today when seen in the metal. This superb example of one of the most powerful production cars of its era, and was first registered in June 1996 and is finished in its original and most attractive colours of Aston Martin Racing Green with a fawn leather interior.

Although the first owner is unknown, by October 1998 a new owner near Newbury in Berkshire was behind the wheel, but their custodianship was short lived as December 1999 saw a gentleman from Bedfordshire acquire the car. They promptly applied their personalised number plate 796 CR and the odometer recorded the car as having only covered about 11,800 miles from new.

Aston Martin Works have maintained the V550 to the highest standard since the gentleman’s purchase, and the history file accompanying the car contains many Aston Martin Works invoices for servicing and maintenance, as well as a quantity of expired MOT certificates since 2001. The car seems to not have required any significant mechanical repairs other than Works fitting a new clutch and flywheel in July 2010 when the recorded mileage was about 27,000 miles.

This excellent example has had only three owners from new and is presented with the maintenance invoices and MOT certificates mentioned above, as well as its original book pack and a main agent
