This stunning V550 was sold by Aston Martin Sales of Mayfair on 5th September 1994 to the first owner Adam Clayton, bass guitarist of rock band ‘U2’
After seven years of ownership and 4,359 miles it passed to its second owner, Mr John Keevil of Tower Leasing. During Mr Keevil’s ownership a replacement speedo was fitted by HWM on 26th March 2002 (mileage at 6,201) all fully documented in the history file. The third owner, Mr Stephen Simpson’s custodianship began in April 2004 and in March 2005 he commissioned Aston Martin Works to remove the sunroof and replace the roof section (fully documented on file), fit traction control and re-paint the car in Buckinghamshire Green as it is today.
Mr Simpson used the Vantage regularly and clocked around 10,000 miles during his ownership.
Acquired by the fourth owner Mr Michael Erwich on 8th December 2015, he kept the car for a short period until 12th August 2016 before it was sold to Mr Owen Lavington.
The Vantage changed hands again in September 2017 to its fifth owner, a private collector who used the car sparingly due to overseas work commitments. In December 2020 RS Williams completed a substantial re-commissioning and service programme which involved removal of the superchargers, replacing vacuum lines to fuel pressure regulators, supercharger bypass valves, water pump etc and the car was sold to it’s sixth owner.
Due to a London garaging size issue, RS Williams have just taken the V550 back and exchanged for a wonderful 1987 X-Pack (which does fit in the garage!)
Offered today in superb condition, this extremely well documented V550 retains its original owners handbook and service booklet and is accompanied by a large folder of supporting service and maintenance invoices, the vast majority from Aston Martin Works themselves.
These cars offer phenomenal performance from their twin-supercharged V8 engines and partnered with a 6-speed manual gearbox, this example is very special indeed.
As with all our sales cars, complete with a full 12 month parts and labour guarantee.
Purchase with piece of mind from one of the World’s most renown Aston Martin experts.
