2000 Aston Martin Vantage V600 Le Mans Coupe

2000 Aston Martin Vantage V600

This limited-edition, right-hand-drive Vantage Le Mans — number 9 of the 40 made — was delivered new to the current owner equipped with many extras, including the factory V600 package and the close-ratio 6-speed manual gearbox, making this car one of only four built to that specification.

Its green exterior color (RM 5235A) is unique to this car, having been specially formulated to the vendor’s specification. Always maintained by Aston Martin Works, Chassis 9 will have been serviced by them immediately prior to sale; it has covered only 2,737 miles from new and is presented in commensurately excellent condition. The car also comes with its toolkit, all the original instruction books, the original invoice and documents from the factory including the numbered V8 Vantage Le Mans booklet signed by Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby.

Paul is descended from engineers and horse thieves, so he naturally gravitated toward the old-car marketplace and still finds fascination in the simpler things in life: looking for spot-weld dimples under an E-type tail, or counting the head-studs on a supposed Mini-Cooper engine. His motoring heroes are Roger Clark, Burt Levy, Henry Royce and Smokey Yunick — and all he wants for next Christmas is an Alvis Stalwart complete with picnic table in the back and a lake big enough to play in.
