2003 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish
“Bond, James Bond"!
‘Red Hills Rods and Classics’ is proud to offer you this absolutely mint, one-owner, low-mile 2003 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish! With only 250 units making it to the USA (only 50 each year from 2003-2007), they are quite a rare species indeed. Holding the number three spot on the list of ‘Best Film Cars Ever’, it really is hard to beat the incredible good looks of this exotic machine. The Aston Martin V12 Vanquish played a huge role in returning this classic British carmaker to both financial success & technological sophistication. On top of classic Aston Martin design cues, such as the unique grille shape & low hood line, it added a shot of bravado that included muscular fenders & a wide, squat stance. It is certainly the most masculine of Aston Martin's classic designs. The Aston Martin V12 Vanquish features thoroughly modern technology, especially for 2003. The main body structure includes aluminum sections bonded & riveted around a central carbon-fiber transmission tunnel. Carbon fiber A-pillars, all-aluminum suspension & aluminum body panels served to keep weight down. The powertrain is equally cutting-edge!
This outstanding example was purchased new on February 5th 2004 @ Galpin Premier Collection in Van Nuys, California, w/ a sticker price of $231,260. This sleek machine has been in Southern California w/ the original owner since day one, and has been meticulously cared for & maintained its entire life. With only 20,335 pampered miles on the clock, you will be hard pressed to find a finer example anywhere @ any price! Finished in beautiful Tungsten Silver Metallic wrapped around a supple Grey Leather Interior, this beautiful 2003 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish is visually stunning in every way.

This V12 Vanquish is 100% factory stock, w/ the exception of the custom sound system & GPS upgrade, as it is quite hard to live w/ a cassette deck in the 21st century!
