Editor’s Choice: Aston Martin V8 Volante LWB
Renowned Aston specialist Nicholas Mee & Company is offering this long-wheelbase V8 Volante for sale, said to be in superb condition – and with a mere 29,500 miles on the odometer.
One of only 63 examples built, the LWB Volante is a spacious tourer, genuinely comfortable for a family of four to travel long distances, with no lack of performance from the superlative 32-valve 5.3-litre V8 engine. Plus, to make the journey even easier, there’s the 4-speed automatic transmission. All that, and the option of top-down motoring when the weather permits. The model is also an important – and emotional – milestone in the history of Aston Martin, as these were the final hand-built cars to be produced at Aston’s now closed Newport Pagnell factory.
In Galloway Green, with a Magnolia and Forest interior, this left-hand-drive Volante was first registered in 2000 and is now priced at £69,950 from Nicholas Mee in London W6. To see the original advert click here; or take a look at the full range of Aston Martins in the Classic Driver Marketplace.
