TREBLE THREAT: BUY ROY KEANE’S ASTON MARTIN ON AUTO TRADER
A custom-painted gold Aston Martin DB7, first owned by Man Utd’s former Captain, Roy Keane, is now up for sale on Auto Trader for a cool £23,950....
Registered in 1998, a year before the Reds won the Treble: the Premier League, the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League, it was snapped up by Roy Keane to celebrate his team’s historic wins – a feat Man Utd hasn’t seen since.
For those interested in keepy uppy appearances, this model has a specially ordered, one-off gold exterior, and black leather interiors. The DB7 Vantage is a two-door petrol automatic with a 3.2 litre engine, and 60,000 miles on the clock.
An Auto Trader spokesperson says: “Roy Keane bought this Aston Martin to celebrate Manchester United’s iconic Treble win of ‘99, standing out as the best four-wheeled piece of memorabilia to mark a golden milestone in the club’s history. But it’s quite a contrast to the footballer’s cars we see so often on Auto Trader today, with G-Wagons and Range Rovers being the go-to-choice for most Premier League players.
“Football fans browsing Auto Trader for some isolation respite may even see more famous cars on site in the coming weeks, as footballers look to occupy their time while the football remains suspended."
The car is available from Scott James of Lytham Ltd near Blackpool, who can be contacted through the Auto Trader ad. If the car is bought whilst the UK is in lockdown, Auto Trader will arrange home delivery of the car to anywhere in mainland UK.
