This car is in a NO RESERVE 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 discreet dark blue coachwork gives this Aston Martin V8 series 3 an understated look we love – understated, that is, apart from the thumping great bonnet scoop, heavily cowled headlamps, massive alloy wheels, and that achingly beautiful rear end.
And yet, while it’s easy to get carried away by what is one of the great automotive designs of the 20th century, this one’s charms are way more than skin deep. It’s MOT’d until next April, which should give you some reassurance. It’s also believed to be a ‘matching numbers’ car too, which is also comforting.
We understand that the past two owners have run the Aston as a part of a classic car club, a role that might have seen it being driven by lots of different folk but also means it was scrupulously serviced because reliability is everything when its sole role is fulfilling lifelong dreams.
In the care of the vendor since 2012, he describes as “a user rather than a show car”, a description we’d agree with. That’s not damning with faint praise either, just the pragmatic assessment of someone who knows his stuff.
Best of all, we’ve sold more of these than anyone else worldwide (yup, that’s a fact!) and we think it’s better than most we see. In a world full of project cars, this one is registered and MOT’d, and starts and drives well.
