Wonderful 1999 Aston Martin DB 7 V12 Vantage Volante with a unique history
This particular car was presented to no one less than Mr Henry Schimberg, the president/CEO of Coca-Cola enterprises by his executive staff on his retirement. Supplied on the 12th November 1999, it only has 25,152 miles on the clock. Midway through 2012 the car was passed on to his son and daughter on their father’s death. The coachwork is outstanding, straight as could be with perfectly fitting body panels. Throughout its life this car has been look after in the upmost meticulous fashion and has not ever sustained any damage. Only 2,050 Vantage V12 Volantes went into production. It has a unique finish of ‘Islay Blue’ with a leather ‘Biscuit and Dark Blue’ trim and a matching dark blue soft-top. The whole interior is very neat and totally original. Mechanically the car is in excellent working order, ensuring perfect driving properties. This car has full documentation including the original car wallet, warranty certificates, mentioning Henry Schimberg. In short a beautiful, low mileage Vantage V12 Volante with very special provenance!
Gallery Aaldering is a family owned business since 1975. Founder Nico Aaldering and his son Nick are responsible for operational and executive management. The company has been in Brummen since 1987 and started on the location where we currently have our second workshop and detailing shop.
Moving to Brummen
Nico started very small, with only three employees. People who still work for the company today. The company grew rapidly and established a name for itself based on quality. In the nineties it was time for expansions after many years of selling Alfa Romeo, then Italian cars later on followed by British cars as well. At the end of 2000 Gallery Aaldering moved to the current premises at the Arnhemsestraat in Brummen. This showroom was build according to Nico's idea and sketches and has a Neoclassical style to match the classic cars inside.
During this time Nick entered the company after finishing his studies and working for different automotive companies. Gallery Aaldering expanded and gained momentum with the decades of experience offered by Nico and the bright new ideas and progressive vision offered by Nick. The collection became more diverse with an important move upwards to higher segments. Gallery Aaldering has grown to become one of the largest classic car dealers in Europe. There are about 350 classic cars on display on four floors with a Grand Café and special rooms for business meetings.
As a family owned business Gallery Aaldering is proud of its history and traditions, but the future is just as important. At the heart of this all is the passion for classic automobiles. For that reason we participate in the most impressive classic car rally in the world, the Mille Miglia.
A deeply rooted love for cars. You will find this in both our genes and the identity of this family owned business.
