This car is in auction on THE MARKET by Bonhams website. The auction is LIVE now. The price shown is the lower estimate.
All bidding takes place on The Market (see photos for web address), plus you will find further text, over 90 photos/video fully illustrating the car and its service history, and the ability to ask questions directly to the seller. The text below is just a brief summary of our full description.
The example on offer here is fitted with the supercharged 3.2 litre inline six, which is good for 340hp along with 489Nm. This power is fed to the rear wheels via a 4-speed automatic gearbox, and is able to crack 62mph in 6.9 seconds, with a top speed of 165mph. This model was registered on the 18th of January 1996 and has been enjoyed by 7 owners before the vendor. It’s said around only 400 six-cylinder examples were produced, thus making it much rarer than the V12.
It has been well enjoyed as it has covered over 103,000 miles but given the age and mileage, the exterior is good condition. The interior has signs of wear/damage, but the car can be enjoyed right away, or could serve a light restoration project. The car comes with plenty of service history, one key, original booklets and Aston Martin DVD.
Standard features include 18” alloys, grey leather seats, alarm, air conditioning, leather steering wheel, electronically adjustable front seats with heated and massage functions, and original Alpine head unit with cassette player and 6 CD changer (located in the boot). The original tool kit with spare bulbs can also be found in the boot.
What really makes this car special, though, is that it’s actually a star. No, it may not have been driven by a particular 00 agent, but it did feature on series 10 of ‘Wheeler Dealers’. This means Mike Brewer ‘held out his hand’ to buy the car, drove it to the workshop for a certain lanky mechanic called Edd China to work on – but more on that later.
