Description

Aston Martin V8 Vantage chassis number 70002 was ordered by Mr. Roger Baines in May 1993 and was the second customer car built and supplied.

Mr. Baines ordered the Aston Martin V8 Vantage car through George Patterson of Murray Motor Company Scotland and took delivery on 1st January 1994 and was delivered to his Bath residence.

The first three customer cars were built in the Engineer department at Aston Martin Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire and were slightly different to the standard production specification, which followed.

Mr. Baines being the enthusiastic collector of fine motorcars always made sure his cars were to his specification and stipulated a number of upgrades to his requirements. This included standard handbrake (Not fly off).

During Mr. Baines ownership it never missed a service and the history is very well documented, always carefully looked after buy Aston Martin Service Department Newport Pagnell.

His personal assistant Paul Cox who was trained by Aston Martin to care for the car while in his supervision always looked after the car.

In 2013 Mr. Baines sold a number of his car in his collection and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage was to be sold, with only 11,500 documented miles on the clock.

The second and current owner of the car has taken the same care of the car with all the servicing being carried out each year by Trinity Engineering of Surrey. Like Mr. Baines the car was kept in exactly the same way and looked after to the same high standards.

This particular Aston Martin Vantage is one of the most original cars we have had the pleasure of handling. Being a very special motorcar with the Aston Martin Engineering special touches makes this car very unique in so many ways. And the fabulous documented history file along with two conscientious owners caring for the car during ownership, I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. It is a shame all cars are not treated this way! The cars fitted luggage is still like new, the car has all its original keys, hand books tools. The music system has been updated and the battery conditioner has been replaced, that’s how original the car is. Stunning colour and condition throughout makes this car so desirable. I have had the pleasure of being part of this car from new, during the purchase, hand over, servicing, re-sale and now, it has been a total pleasure and a privilege.
