|1993 Aston Martin V8 Zagato Vantage Volante|
One of Only Six Cars Produced
Chassis Number: SCFCV81Z0KTR30042.
Engine Number: V/585/0042.
Zagato had created the first production two-seater since the DB4GT. The 5.3-litre four-cam V8 was, naturally, to Vantage specification, producing a mind-bending 432bhp at 6,200rpm. The manner of its installation though, created a certain amount of controversy at Newport Pagnell as the existing Zagato design featured a low sloping bonnet, penned in the expectation of a fuel-injected engine, but to produce a “Vantage specification” a revised bonnet design had to take place to clear the Vantage's quartet of Webers.
# 30042 is one of only six Zagato Vantage Volantes originally constructed by the factory with the Vantage engine specification. A letter on file from AML Ltd states: 'factory records show the modifications to engine and bodywork etc. were carried out prior to delivery to the first owner. The car was sold new on 1st August 1993 to the first registered keeper, Mr Michael A Johnson of Dundee. Stamps in the accompanying service book record visits to the Murray Motor Company in January 1995 (at 2,841 miles), Donaldson & Evans in June 1996 (at 3,425 miles) and Works Service in August '96 (at 3,745 miles) when the speedometer was replaced.
In July 1996 the car was acquired by the previous owner. Subsequent AMWS bills on file include one for converting the engine to unleaded compatibility, and we are advised that other Works Service modifications include;
•Sports handling pack,
•Extended (deeper) boot spoiler
•Straight-through stainless steel exhausts system with revised tailpipes.
In addition, the car boasts a Momo steering wheel, wind deflector and (in addition to the original wheels/tyres that are fitted) a set of Sniper alloy wheels shod with Pirelli P Zero tyres. In June2006 # 30042 was serviced at 10,501 miles and for the past four years has been in storage. A further service was carried out on 7th, May 2011.
Finished in Metallic Black with matching leather interior, this ultra-rare Zagato Vantage Volante is a stunning low mileage example and would be a wise addition to any serious Aston Martin Collection. £149,995.00
