We are delighted to offer for sale this rare left hand drive Vantage 550.
Off the road for a number of years undergoing modifications, this particular example does not come with an engine and gearbox. Various gearbox options can be discussed along with a new 7.3 litre engine.
One of a handful to leave the factory in Rolls Royce White (now Onyx Black) with a magnolia leather interior, it also had the rare and desirable 6-speed manual gearbox.
With a total production of just 239 examples, the Vantage V550 is a rare car and certainly the last, truly coach-built car made by Aston Martin at their Newport Pagnell Works.
Huge performance was on tap courtesy of the hand-built 5.3 Litre twin supercharged V8 engine which produced a staggering 550BHP and 550ft/lbs torque, making it the most powerful production car at the time. Despite epic proportions, the Vantage was no slouch, sprinting to 60mph in less than 4.6 seconds but the awe-inspiring part was its formidable the mid-range performance, the vast twin Eaton superchargers gave an immediate brutal response and if needed, enormous flexibility.
It would make a great project and could easily be exported back to its original country or origin Germany.
