If you have ever coveted an Aston Martin, and who among us has not, then the three Astons featured in the next CCA sale would make a visit to bid at Warwickshire Events Centre, near Leamington Spa on Saturday 30th September, an idea worth considering.
Leading the Aston line-up and looking purposeful in Meteorite Silver is this 2006 Aston Martin V8 Vantage manual, has covered just 18,300 miles, and comes to the CCA sale with a guide price of £35,000 – £40,000.
Car Specialist, Simon Langsdale who sourced it for the CCA sale says “This is a truly stunning car in Meteorite Silver with a grey leather interior stitched in red. It has great numbers: 4,261cc, 380bhp, 302lb/ft, 0-60 in 4.8 seconds and 175mph top speed and was supplied new in November 2006 by Stratstones of Mayfair to its first owner for £83,852. The manual gearbox makes this a real drivers’ car and a collector’s dream with just 18,300 miles on the clock.”
Gary Dunne of CCA says: “The consistent popularity of Aston Martins at our sales, their great attractiveness and plenty of bidding going on for them, adds to their appeal at sales.”
Optioned with Sat Nav, bright grille, heated screen, personalised sill plaques, integrated telephone and 19″ 7-spoke alloys. Supplied with the original book pack including manuals and stamped service book, the most recent by Aston Bristol in July for £780 with a matching invoice. Also recently fitted with brand new updated (2015) lighting, front and rear.
Next up is this excellent example of Ian Callum’s powerful British GT with less than 50,000 miles for a guide price of £20,000 – £25,000.
Aston Martin says of this car: “The Aston Martin DB9 is a thoroughbred sports car with GT levels of comfort and refinement. Combining Aston Martin’s unique character with an uncompromising design philosophy, the DB9 was borne out of a synthesis of traditional craftsmanship, high-tech manufacturing, modern components, and use of the finest materials”
This car was first registered in September 2008, this DB9 was purchased last year by its current owner who is now moving abroad, forcing a reluctant sale. It is powered by a 6-litre V12 producing 450bhp and 420lb/ft mated to a 6-speed ZF automatic gearbox with paddle shift.
Finished in Onyx Black over a black leather-trimmed interior complemented by white accent stitching, a grey Alcantara headlining, and Piano Black and aluminium trim inserts on the centre console and door cards. It sits on 19”, twin 5-spoke alloy wheels in front of yellow brake calipers.
Boasting a classic DB9 cockpit, fully equipped to ‘Factory-spec’ with a trip computer, cruise control, multi-function steering wheel, electric memory seats, parking sensors to both the front and rear, switchable sport mode, air-conditioning, CD stereo with Bluetooth connectivity, satellite navigation, and push-button start. Supplied with its original Owner’s Manual, stamped service book, a selection of maintenance invoices including recent 15th year service (detailed in condition report) and two key fobs along with a spare master key. Will come to sale with a fresh MOT.
A desirable example of the V12 Vantage convertible with just 65,400 miles and much expenditure during current ownership at an estimate of £19,000 – £23,000. It sports a Cosworth-designed, 5.9-litre, 48-valve, all-alloy V12 producing a creamy 420bhp and 400lb/ft of torque.
This is a UK-supplied, RHD, Touchtronic, Vantage Volante finished in Solent Silver with a black leather interior and 10-spoke Vantage alloys. It was purchased by our vendor in 2020 and immediately serviced and minor jobs attended to (£6,000). Substantial expenditure since then including a new hood (2021), replacement engine fitted by Village Garage, Upper Boddington May 2022 (cost £16,000), new Catalysts (Feb 2023) and a new battery (June 2023). Four former keepers and an MOT until June 2024 issued with No Advisories.
