Detailed History
Aston Martin Works are delighted to offer an exceptional example of the iconic AM V8 Vantage. This late model Vantage is one of just 121 cars equipped with the most desirable X-Pack engine and 5-speed manual gearbox configuration, affording it the ultimate V8 Vantage driving experience.

Supplied new in Leeds in August 1987, this matching numbers car is presented in its striking and original colour combination of Suffolk Red with a magnolia leather interior with red piping.

The first owner had E77 BBB for eight years until the second owner acquired it in January 1995. Residing in Wolverhampton, the property developer applied his personalised number plate JR 6734 and was methodical about retaining paperwork relating to the car, a trait the subsequent owners fortunately copied.

The third recorded owner purchased the car in March 1999 and he changed the number plate to PIW 500, after which the fourth owner from Hertfordshire took ownership in December 2001 and the number plate was changed to E885 WOK.

The last owner was to enjoy the Vantage longer than anyone before, having bought it in February 2005 and applied the appropriate number plate 691 AMX. He was clearly an enthusiast and an excellent custodian as it appears the car was maintai
