Here we have a very rare example of the Aston Martin / Prodrive V8 Vantage. This 2006 car was one of 3 cars given to Prodrive by Aston Martin, to develop the Prodrive upgrade packages. Firstly there was an earlier 05 car, then the later pair, both have consecutive number plates, this one is KX06 HZC and sister car, a Red example features KX06 HZB, found on promotional adverts at the time. This car benefits with a lovely detailed history, including confirmation from Prodrive Chairman, former Aston Martin Chairman and Motorsport legend, David Richards, discussing the package development using this actual car.
Prodrive had a great relationship with Aston Martin, running their GT racing programs with great success. This example benefits from the Prodrive Enhancements to the engine and suspension, wheels and bodywork. All of this could be ordered through the Aston Martin dealers, still covered under their warranties. The engine changes included a recalibrated ECU and revised free-flow catalysts increased peak power to a quoted 425bhp, a 45bhp increase over the standard V8 Vantage, with a useful 300 RPM rev limit increase. The suspension upgrade incorporates Bilstein dampers and Eibach springs offering greater ride quality and performance thanks to electronically switchable settings of Comfort and Sport, the lightweight 19inch alloys not only look fantastic but offer a weight saving at each corner. The exhaust on this example was developed to make the most of this superb V8 engine, it sounds amazing. Carbon fibre front and rear spoilers, unique to Prodrive, along with facelift side panels, give this car a much improved, race inspired look.
Options on this example on top of the Prodrive extras include Bluetooth Prep, HID Headlamps with wash, Premium Audio package, Heated front screen, Power fold mirrors, Sat Nav, Heated and Electric seats.
