Aston Martin Vanquish: Buying guide and review (2001-2007)

Aston Martin Vanquish: Buying guide and review (2001-2007) Classic and Performance Car
Damnably seductive, the original Vanquish. It’s a car with vivid performance, a tremendous warmth of character and a rousing delivery that grips you from the moment you press that big red starter button and never lets you go. As when new, its charisma more than compensates for its few failings, and cements its place as one of the great Aston Martins. With early examples available for as little as £50,000, they are horribly tempting.
 
This was the last extensively hand-built Aston and the last to come from the old Newport Pagnell works, which to some makes it the last ‘real’ Aston. Not that it’s a dinosaur. In many respects it was also the first of the new-era Astons. The first to be launched under the stewardship of Dr Ulrich Bez, and the first to be built around a structure of extruded, bonded aluminium and advanced composites. 
Another break with tradition was the automated six-speed manual gearbox, which did away with a clutch pedal and introduced paddles for the first time on an Aston, side-stepping the notoriously heavyweight manual gearshifts of previous flagship models.
 
And then there was the 460bhp 5.9-litre V12, a Cosworth-led evolution of the engine that had first seen service in the DB7 Vantage. It endowed the Vanquish with suitably vivid performance – 0-60 in under 5sec, a top speed of around 190mph and a rousing soundtrack to match – while the stiff platform and beautifully controlled suspension gave the Vanquish a light-on-its-toes demeanour that was a revelation after the previous supercharged Vantage flagship. And all clothed in a body of undeniable muscularity and ‘presence’, Ian Callum’s first clean-sheet Aston design.
 
Which one to buy?
 
Any Vanquish is a desirable package, but the biggest choice you have to make is early or late model. The model evolved over the years, and the character of a launch spec Vanquish is considerably different to a last of the line Vanquish S. 
 
A really worthwhile option to seek out is the Sports Dynamic Pack, available from 2003. This added uprated suspension and brakes, but the Vanquish S, introduced in 2004 (from chassis 1506), incorporated these as standard. Along with the handling upgrades, a new aero package, improved gearshift and a power increase to 520bhp completed the package.
 
Towards the end of Vanquish production, Aston Martin Works Service was sanctioned to develop a manual gearshift conversion. Almost 70 cars have been converted so far – although a well set-up automated car is a delight in itself.
 
The Linn audio system that replaced the original Alpine hi-fi for the 2003 model year is desirable, as is full leather (some Vanquishes have Alcantara centre panels on the seats), while 2+2s are slightly more sought-after. 007-spec Tungsten paint adds value; conversely, dark blues and greens are not so saleable.

Common problems
 
A well-kept Vanquish should present with undamaged bodywork, a clean, unmarked interior and a well-populated service file – although it’s unrealistic to expect that low-mileage cars will have been religiously serviced every six months, you should still expect to see stamps and invoices for annual work. You’re unlikely to be inspecting the quality of restoration work, although few Vanquishes are still in original hands.
 
• A full service history by reputable specialists is the first box in need of ticking. Ideally Vanquishes should be serviced every six months or 7500 miles; if a car’s had anything less than an annual service it should certainly put you on your guard

• The good news is that the V12 engine is very strong, and serious faults are rare. The most common problem is with the coil packs, which suffer both from heat damage and occasionally from water ingress causing shorting. Any misfiring points to problems.

• Potentially the most serious issue is oil consumption caused by the engine ingesting its own oil vapour because the reed-type valves in the breather system have stuck open. A low oil level could eventually lead to starved big end bearings at the back of the engine. So look inside the air filter for a heavy oil deposit; anything more than a light misting could spell trouble.

• Don’t be put off by the automated manual – properly set up and driven with a little sensitivity, it’s a decent system. The Magnetti Marelli hardware sits on the back of the transaxle, providing electro-hydraulic actuation of the gearchanges.

• Early cars had analogue gear position sensors, which can wear, which is when you can get problems. Later cars (chassis 600 onwards) had magnetic sensors, which are much more robust. Most early cars have had them retro-fitted when the clutch has been replaced. The shift has benefited from software updates over the years, too.

• Unsurprisingly, clutch wear varies hugely depending on driving style. Clutches can last as few as 15,000 miles or as many as 40,000. On the test drive you’re looking for a nice crisp pull-away and a crisp change, with no slip, no untoward noises and no serious vibrations. A whistling sound as you pull away suggests spigot shaft bearing wear, which is a £2000 repair; £5000 if the shaft needs replacing too.

• The standard brakes aren’t up to track-work but are fine for anything but the most extreme road driving. Cross drillings should be cleaned as part of a service; if they’re blocked it can lead to corrosion, particularly on the inner face.

• look for bubbling at the edges of the aluminium body panels, the first signs of electrolytic corrosion, which if it develops will eventually necessitate a respray. 

• Also check the front wing strakes – they’re cast on some cars and also prone to bubbling (replacements cost around £300 each).

• The single biggest problem with the Vanquish, though, is its steel front subframe. Water gets trapped between undertray and frame, causing rust. If it’s extensive it may require replacement (£5000-plus). So remove the tray and check. 

• Also check the small steel bracket at the end of each sill. Corrosion here can spread through the mounting bolts and cause electrolytic reaction in the tub itself. The carbonfibre crash structure front and rear is visible underneath so check for signs of damage, though it is repairable.

Summary and prices
 
This was (and remains) a car of strong character, great style and effortless (200mph!) performance, with a unique place in history as the last of the artisan Astons – and prices seem set to continue rising. Fancy a Vanquish? Better act quick.
 
Well-cared-for examples are creeping up in value. Expect to pay from £55,000 upwards for a well-maintained early Vanquish today. Values are just starting to move ahead, and early cars are starting to sell for between £60,000 and £75,000, while a nice S is £100,000 and an Ultimate Edition [the run-out model, just 50 made] is way beyond that. Predictably, mileage, service history and condition count most, but specification also plays a part.

  • 190 - 2002 Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupé Evocation

    POA POA

    The Shelby Daytona Coupé (also referred to as the Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupé) is a sports-coupé related to the AC Cobra roadster, loosely based on its chassis and drive-train. It was built for racing, specifically to take on Ferrari and its 250GTO in the GT class. There were only six original Coupés ever made. Those cars captured the 1965 FIA World Championship for America in the last years before mega-money took American road racing from its roots and from the average guy. Despite the fact that the design never entered production, those six cars, hand-built upon 289 AC chassis, are some of the most valuable collectors' cars on the planet. Each of the original six Daytona Coupés is valued at more than $8 million. Supplied by Factory Five in Canada, this Shelby Daytona Coupé has been built to road and race specification. She is very authentic in appearance and is fitted with a Hawaii Racing built Ford 351W and has been bored to 363 cubic inches (5800cc) producing an impressive 450bhp, all of this power is mated to a TKO five-speed gearbox.

    POA POA

    The Vespa has evolved from a single model motor scooter manufactured in 1946 by Piaggio to a full line of scooters and one of seven companies today owned by Piaggio. From their inception, Vespa scooters have been known for their painted, pressed steel unibody which combines a complete cowling for the engine (enclosing the engine mechanism and concealing dirt or grease), a flat floorboard (providing foot protection) and a prominent front fairing (providing wind protection) into a single structural unit. Stylish and efficient, they percolate through every strata of life. Presented in excellent condition, as you would expect for just 3,600 miles recorded, this striking red example is a kick-start model with additional luggage rack and passenger backrest. It has recently suffered a dent to the front wheel arch and come complete with a manual, handbook and MoT test certificate valid until March, 2018.

  • 238 - 2002 Mini Cooper S 'ex-Madonna'

    POA POA

    Introduced in 2001, the hatchback Mini was the first model of the new generation Mini and was back then simply known as Mini. It was available in Cooper, Cooper S and One variations. In many European markets, the Mini One was powered by a 1.4 litre version but all other petrol powered Minis used the 1.6 litre version. The names Cooper and Cooper S, used for the sportier version of the classic Mini, came from the involvement of John Cooper and the Cooper Car Company. Strapping a supercharger to the Mini Cooper elevated the performance to a level that most other road users didn't expect. This rubbed salt into the wounds of other performance car drivers when they were left for dead on a twisty road. It takes a keen eye to pick out the bonnet scoop; the only reliable visual indication that this is the hot Mini rather than just a tarted-up One. In December 2000, Madonna, quite possibly the most recognisable female artist on the planet, wed English film director Guy Ritchie. After their wedding, they settled into a multi-million pound London residence and as you would expect, living in London, purchased a small runabout to beat the traffic. This small runabout was the Mini Cooper S on of

  • 278 - 2002 LDV Pilot 'Mutts Cutts'

    POA POA

    We could discuss the LDV Pilot van that forms the skeleton of this strange offering but that would somehow defeat the object of the exercise. What I can tell you is that this curious vehicle has now made its way into the national subconscious on both sides of the Atlantic and represents one of the most famous and recognisable 'film-cars' of all time. Dumb & Dumber was released in 1994 as a warm and humorous family film but it was the two leading men, giants in their field, which catapulted the film into the stratosphere and even spawned a sequel. Imbecilic best friends Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) stumble across a suitcase full of money left behind in Harry's car by Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly), who was on her way to the airport. The pair decide to go to Aspen, Colorado to return the money, unaware that it is connected to a kidnapping. As Harry and Lloyd, who has fallen in love with Mary, are pursued across the country by hired killers and police, they find both their friendship and their very meagre brains tested. This has been created as a faithful tribute to the original Mutts Cutts van, it is fully up and running and comes complete with an MoT test

    POA POA

    Patrick Le Quement's 2+3 Coupe GT MPV concept was revealed at the Paris Motorshow in 1998. The reaction from the motoring press was unanimously positive prompting Renault to take the very bold step of launching their 'Avantime' (meaning ahead-of-time) into production largely unchanged. This radical flagship not only had handsome good looks but also an abundance of luxuries, safety features and advanced engineering. Highlights included unique double-hinged 'kinematic' pillarless doors allowing easy access to the front and rear seats (even when tightly parked), the world's largest opening glass sunroof at the time featuring strengthened heat-reflecting tinted glass, theatre seating (rear higher than the front), galvanised steel chassis with aluminium upper structure, cavernous 530 litre boot, xenon headlights, and a 'grand air' mode which retracts the 1m² glass sunroof at the same time as the pillarless side windows, all at the press of one switch. 'Sub Zero' status on Top Gear's 'Cool Wall' earned the Avantime some notoriety, especially with the presenters claiming that Renaults Avantime was cooler even than the Aston Martin Vanquish and "the coolest car money can buy" yet just 450

    POA POA

    Unveiled at the 2001 Geneva Motor Show, the Ian Callum designed Vanquish was an instant sales success and its choice of transport for James Bond only added to the appeal. Every car enthusiast throughout the world wanted the successor to the Virage. The 6.0 litre, V12 produced engine pushed out 450bhp, mated to a 'flappy paddle' electro-hydraulic manual gearbox, fly by wire throttle and, of course, looks to die for! It was no surprise that the car was the top of the Aston Martin range throughout its seven years of production. The Aston Martin legend as the ultimate British sports car was set to continue. Stunning in its original colour scheme of Skye Silver with a Charcoal and Ivory leather interior and covering just 27,000 miles from new, this brooding example is presented with a main dealer service history from JCT600. It has only three former keepers recorded and was first registered on 29th April 2002. There are ten service stamps in the service book, almost all from JCT600.

  • 193 - 2002 Aston Martin Vanquish

    POA POA

    Unveiled at the 2001 Geneva Motor Show, the Ian Callum designed Vanquish was an instant sales success and its choice of transport for James Bond only added to the appeal. Every car enthusiast throughout the world wanted the successor to the Virage. The 6.0 litre, V12 produced engine pushed out 450bhp, mated to a 'flappy paddle' electro-hydraulic manual gearbox, fly by wire throttle and, of course, looks to die for! It was no surprise that the car was the top of the Aston Martin range throughout its seven years of production. The Aston Martin legend as the ultimate British sports car was set to continue. Presented in near perfect Skye Silver with charcoal leather interior, this three-owner from new example has a remarkably low mileage. Purchased in February 2002, LF02 JXG has a comprehensive Aston Martin main dealer service history from delivery.

    POA POA

    The Ferrari 360 was manufactured from 1999 to 2005 and succeeded the F355. It is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive, V8-powered coupé and Ferrari partnered with Alcoa to produce an entirely new, all aluminium space-frame chassis that was 40% stiffer than the F355. Along with a lightweight frame, the new Pininfarina body styling deviated from traditions of the previous decade's sharp angles and flip-up headlights. The new V8 engine utilises a 3.6 litre capacity and, despite what looks like on paper modest gains, in reality the power to weight ratio was significantly improved. The first model to be rolled out was the 360 Modena followed later by the 360 Spider and finally, as a special edition, the Challenge Stradale; there were 8,800 Modena's and 7,565 Spiders produced. This desirable manual, lefthand drive example was first registered in 2002 and benefits from the Formula 1 championship winner dash motif only available from the factory on this production year. Finished in metallic black with a full black leather interior, this 360 Modena is offered in absolutely stunning condition throughout. An extremely good service history accompanies it and it has been serviced regularly, most rece
