On November 11th, 1985, this Aston Martin Vantage (VIN no. SCFCV81V0GTL12501) left Newport Pagnell after 1,200 man-hours of hand-building. With its exterior finished in Kensington Silver, the inside was clad in Dark Blue Connolly Leather featuring Blue carpets and Grey headlining. Since then, the car has covered just 82,631 km (51,344 miles).
The new car would then be offered for sale in Zurich, Switzerland by purveyors of Aston Martin, Autocenter Safenwil and, on September 9th, 1987 was delivered to its first owner. Documents show that the car remained here, being sold to its third owner in March, 2000 and then its fourth beneficiary in 2010.
In 2017, renowned Aston Martin specialists, Nicholas Mee & Co., carried out a comprehensive service on behalf of its now-fifth owner, a resident of Germany, which included: a steering rack overhaul, radiator rebuild, new camshaft gaskets, differential rebuild, brake flush, new clutch, new starter motor, fitted new UK headlamps, new springs and shock absorbers, and the installation of a Harvey Bailey handling kit including an anti-roll bar and link bushings.
In May of 2019, it was sold by Nicholas Mee Co. to its current owner, proprietor of Aston Martin New England/Lotus Motorsports, Steve Serio. In March 2020, the car received an oil and filter service, new transmission fluid as well as a brake flush.
