Original EU Specification Left Hand Drive Manufactured
For the Aston Martin connoisseur, probably no road car built by the Works can match this for rarity, power and old school charisma. Announced in 1999 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the firm’s victory at Le Mans, just 40 were made and today they are collectors’ items which rarely appear on the market for sale. The specification of the 40 cars varied from customer to customer, but the ultimate specification is the 600bhp varient of the supercharged engine (550bhp was standard) and just four cars were originally built to this specification.
Acceleration from standstill to 100km/h took 3.9 seconds and top speed was quoted as “in excess of 320km/h”. Of the 40 Le Mans made only twenty-two cars were originally manufactured in left-hand drive.

Our car, number 32, was supplied new and held on Swiss registration / title. We understand the car has had only two owners from new and has been kept in a private collection by both keepers.
In 2012, the previous keeper commissioned Aston Martin Works Service Ltd, Newport Pagnell to carry out a complete restoration and upgrades to this sensational V600 Vantage Le Mans.
