Selling An Aston Martin Vantage


Aston Martin Vantage
Aston Martin Vantage

Vantage is a designation used by Aston Martin on several of their models, usually indicating a higher performance engine option. However, the car produced and manufactured in 1972 and 1973 was named the Aston Martin Vantage, without an additional model name – the first time a Vantage was its own model. The next Aston Martin vehicle to use the name Vantage would not be used again until the 1977 Aston Martin V8 Vantage. A DB6-looking grille and a unique 2-headlight front clip can distinguish the design of the Aston Martin Vantage from its predecessors. The engine was a straight-6 boosted version of the DBS (being powered by a new V8 engine at the time). The Aston Martin Vantage was the last Aston Martin model to come with the straight-6 Aston Martin until the DB7 in 1993 and also the last Aston with wire wheels. The Aston Martin Vantage was produced in 1972 and 1973 only, allowing just 71 examples to be made. If you’re the owner of an Aston Martin Vantage and are thinking about selling your classic, the Alex Manos team would be delighted to learn more about your particular model.


Aston Martin Vantage Seller’s Guide

The Aston Martin Vantage benefited from all the mechanical and cosmetic revisions made during the 5-year production of the DBS. For example, the ‘dog leg’ ZF five-speed gearbox that was developed for the DBS V8 was also used for the Vantage. Although Aston Martin clientele requested a V8-powered car for a long time before it was released, the 6-cylinder engine was still successful through 1973. As the last Aston Martin car with this inline-6 engine, the Vantage is now a highly sought-after example of Aston Martin 1970’s engineering and design.
