"Works Prepared"

I've come across a 2007 V8V that has a decal on the windshield that says "Works Prepared" See below. What does this imply?

Unless the car had custom work performed after it left the factory, it just means that the guy likes AM decals.

Works Prepared

My first Vantage was a special order - wood interior and daylight running lights done through Works, so my 07 had the sticker.

The owner said they bored out the motor and it makes 420HP. But the only proof seems to be the decal. He doesn't have documentation. Perhaps a dyno would clear it up.

Worth an inquiry to an AM dealer with the VIN. If work was done, it should be in the vehicle records.

Where's a good spot?

My "Works Prepared" sticker is on the left hand lock pillar, right where I put it. Found it on Ebay.
