In May 2019, the vendor, an international businessman and Aston enthusiast bought the car as a planned retirement gift to himself. Nevertheless, at 81 he has not retired and neither has he driven the car, in his own words “Once I drove the car, I know that I wouldn’t want to part with it. The new owner will have a car that is absolutely brand new”. The car was first registered on the 18th December 2019, fifty years to the day since the release of On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
