Imposing. That is the offer that Troostwijk Auctions has put together for its online auction. The auction, which has recently started, guarantees exclusive fireworks from the higher segment. Prospective buyers have the option to bid online on one or more attractive items, which are in a broad age category. In total Troostwijk Auctions offers 70 copies. The collection consists of various exclusive cars, a few special two-wheelers and a pleasure craft. One of the highlights of the auction is the Aston Martin Vanquish 5.9 V12 Coupé, a jewel of a car.

First a look at the list. To start with the motorized two-wheelers: Troostwijk Auctions has a Harley-Davidson FLHX Streetglide 1.8 and a Piaggio Vespa GTS 300 Super on offer. The automotive spectrum is the main focus. From the German side, Mercedes in particular is well represented. Among other things, a Mercedes-Benz 280 SL from 1968 stands out. A thoroughbred Italian should not be missing in a list of exotics, the Ferrari Mondial Convertible 3.2 V8 Quattrovalvole feels at home within the range. Furthermore, a number of beautiful Americans (the Ford Mustang, Ford Thunderbird, Oldsmobile Cutlass S Coupe, Chevrolet Corvair Spider, Chevrolet Corvette are just a few of the eye catches).

Unique Aston Martin Vanquish 5.9 V12 Coupé

And what about the British offer? This includes, for example, a few beautiful Rolls Royce specimens, engaging Bentleys (such as the MK VI Saloon 4.3 from 1948), a number of Jaguars (such as a beautiful E-Type and a special S-Type 3.8) and some Triumphs. The most unique Brit is probably also the most coveted car at the auction. That is the Aston Martin Vanquish 5.9 V12 Coupé. This Aston Martin Vanquish V12 is the crown jewel on the impressive list of Troostwijk Auctions. The beautifully designed Brit dates from the year of construction 2003, March to be exact. Moreover, he only has 20.000 miles on the clock. It is painted in Tungsten Silver, a color scheme that enhances the interplay of powerful curves, low profiling and subtle lines.

Top equipment

Moreover, the first owner greeted an extensive equipment. This Aston Martin Vanquish has an automatic transmission with six gears (also controllable with flippers on the leather steering wheel) and ABS. And he has even more delicacies on board. Things like air conditioning, original factory light metal, electrically adjustable seats with leather upholstery and heating, a system with double exhaust, electrically operated windows, an Aston Martin Audio system and central locking are all part of the Brit's trimmings, who by nature are already a pearl are called.

Everything matches

The Vanquish V12 offered by Troostwijk Auctions has matching numbers. Chassis number scfac23333b500810 was united by Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd with the V12 engine that has a displacement of 5.935 cc. And that power source provides specifications that absolutely do not lie.

Impressive technique

As villainous as the car is drawn, so brutal is the power that this Aston Martin displays. According to the manufacturer's specification, the car has 457 horses in the front. They are all put to work at 6.500 revolutions per minute. In addition, the torque is impressive: 556 Nm at 5.500 revolutions per minute. The top speed is three hundred plus, the time to accelerate from a standstill to 100 kilometers is 4.5 seconds. To curb that violence, Aston Martin mounted a set of powerful stoppers on the Vanquish V12 versions. The (of course power-assisted) braking system for this type (ex factory) includes ventilated brake discs at the front (diameter 355 mm) and rear (diameter 330 mm) and four-piston calipers. These are clearly visible behind the alloy wheels, which are also surrounded by fine Pirelli footwear at the auction item.

Business attractive in several respects

What makes the case even more interesting is that the Vanquish V12 car offered by Troostwijk Auctions has already been imported into the Netherlands. The import duties have been paid for this Aston Martin Vanquish, which currently still has a US title registration. He also has the European import documents. This Aston is also fiscally attractive for the business driver. Due to the young timer arrangement, he is allowed for 35% of the purchase price added Service.
