2011 Aston Martin V12 Vantage

$145,000
One of 40 Carbon Black Edition V12 Vantages Built.

Created using the tried and true technique of putting the largest engine in the smallest car, the V12 Vantage is one of the best sports cars of the last decade in addition to being the last naturally-aspirated V12 manual car ever made. When the V8 Vantage appeared, it was powered by a 4.3 liter 380hp V8 and was universally praised for its spectacular good looks, aluminum chassis, and handling balance. Dry sump lubrication and rear-mounted transaxle signaled that Aston Martin was serious about creating a genuine sports car, and the press noted that the car could easily handle more power. Four years later, the V12 Vantage appeared, powered by the hot-rodded 510hp 12-cylinder DBS motor (60hp more than the DB9 motor on which it was based). Functional carbon fiber vents were added to the hood and the bumpers and side skirts revised, and a larger rear lip spoiler added along with larger wheels and brakes. Although it was created by pulling the best from the Aston Martin parts stash, the result is stunning. It is a car with superb proportions, dynamically spectacular, and aurally sensational. It is the ultimate expression of the old-school sports car: front-engined, naturally aspirated, and manual, but rendered with the brilliance of today's cars. In short, it is the Ferrari that Ferrari never made.

This particular car is one of 40 Carbon Black V12 Vantages built, which are differentiated by a combination of black trim and carbon fiber trim inside and out, black paintwork, and black brake calipers.

Car details
To further our mission of bringing trust and transparency to the secondary market, ISSIMI created an in depth inspection that is unique in the automotive industry. An ISSIMI report is a true mechanical inspection performed by marque experts to inform asset quality and value, not just a traditional binary checklist meant to enable sales or a long, draconian PPI list. The mechanical component of the inspection is paired with a full background research project into the provenance of the particular chassis, including collection and auditing of all available documentation, from service records, ownership transfers, import/export certificates, restoration invoices, and third party marque specific reports where possible.

Each individual inspection is performed in ISSIMI's proprietary inspection platform and database to track asset quality at a moment in time but also the provenance and history of a given chassis number.

An ISSIMI report is far more in depth than the type of inspections and research docs currently being used by dealers and auction houses, and client feedback tells us the ISSIMI approach is the type of inspection that experienced buyers require and elite sellers are happy to provide.
