Thanks to Henrik Fisker, designer of the 2005 Aston Martin Vantage, the world was graced with what is thought by many to be one of the best looking sports cars made in the new millennium. Originally produced with a V8, the small body and short wheel base of the Aston Martin Vantage didn’t change much, aesthetically, during its 12 years of production, but engine choices expanded as the car matured. In 2009 the Vantage was offered with a V12 taken from the Aston DBS. After shoehorning the enormous power plant into the elegant Vantage silhouette, the personality of the small sports car changed drastically; the “baby” Aston was now a full blown, gentleman’s hot rod. Jeremy Clarkson, the notable automotive journalist and a star of Top Gear proclaimed the V12 Vantage, “wonderful, wonderful…. wonderful.”
In 2010-12 the V12 Vantage was offered with a Carbon Black Edition trim line that was exclusive to V12 Vantages with 6 speed manuals. This option gave the car a bespoke color combination: Carbon Black metallic paint over Obsidian Black leather. The example offered here is virtually in factory condition, except for a few minor wrinkles on the seat bolsters.
Like all Carbon Black edition cars, this one comes standard with the piano black trim, white/ light grey stitching, electronically adjustable sport seats, Aston Martin 700 watt speaker system, navigation, automatic climate control, xenon headlights, and carbon fiber accenting on the hood and side vents.
The vehicle is sold with full service records, CARFAX, and service current.
