The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was dubbed ‘Britain’s first supercar after its introduction to the press in 1977. Based on the elegant V8 Coupe which began production in 1972, the Vantage was a highly tuned version which benefited from significant power gains over the standard model, aided by the fitment of larger carburettors, bigger valves, revised camshafts and extensive suspension tuning

Vantage models could be visually identified by the by their large front airdam and ‘blanked off’ front grille and Vantage badges. With genuine 170 MPH plus performance, the new model was extremely well received by the press and customers alike with performance akin to the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona

The ‘Vantage’ was the ultimate variation of the V8 series, produced over a twelve-year period and the final iteration of the model was known as the ‘X-Pack’. These ‘580X’ cars had a further power increase to 432BHP with subtle cosmetic revisions and are highly collectible today with just 137 coupe models constructed in total from 1986-89

This sensational manual Vantage X-Pack Coupe was ordered by Mr Dennis Angilley of Newquay, Cornwall, via Marshall (Cambridge Ltd) on 14th December 1988. Finished in ‘Rolls Royce’ Balmoral Green coachwork with Parchment hide (3672), Dark Green piping (3655), carpets in Beige (0289) with Dark Green edge (3655) with Beige headlining (8703)

As per the original build sheet, the dash top, steering wheel rim and spokes were finished in dark Green (3655), the horn push in trimmed in Parchment, Lambswool floor rugs were supplied in Beige and ‘V8 Saloon grille fitted in lieu of blanking plate’ by special request of the first owner, an unusual feature for an X-Pack and rarely seen

The original Warranty card (held on file) was issued 17th April 1989 and this Vantage was first registered ‘100 DRA’. Mr Angilley had the X Pack maintained without regard to expense, almost exclusively by AM Works Service throughout his sixteen-year ownership (1989-2015) as evidenced by the extensive service and maintenance records which accompany the car (see service history below). During his ownership the X Pack was carefully driven in good weather and covered just 1000 miles per year, trucked to and from AM Works Service from his home in Cornwall and never shown at any AMOC events or car shows

Listed in the Kean Rogers definitive book on V8 Vantage, the text states: ‘Registered on April 15th, 1989, as 100 DRA, a cryptic note on the build sheet lists it as being built out of order. It was ordered December 1988 whereas ‘X-Packs’ around its chassis number wise were dated June 1988. No other details were listed and it remains a mystery that follows the car, while still registered in the UK, it has not been sighted at all. Finished in Balmoral Green it features atypical Parchment interior piped in Dark Green and beige carpets. The V8 Saloon grille was fitted in lieu of a blanking plate. Location UK. No photo available.’

Acquired ‘off market’ by the second and current owner, a noted Aston Martin collector, via AM Works Service on 29th October 2015. This exceptional low-mileage, high specification manual X Pack must be one of the very best examples extant and we are honoured to have been selected to offer the car for sale for the first time publicly

Supplied with the original owners wallet which includes all the original handbooks, original service book, original warranty card, original order form and original radio handbook. Extensive service and maintenance invoices accompany the car as well as almost every MoT certificate from new, numerous road tax discs and two sets of keys

This outstanding X Pack coupe has a covered a warranted 16,500 miles from new in the hands of two owners and will be freshly serviced by marque experts R.S.Williams prior to delivery to its new owner. This Vantage is a unique opportunity for collectors to acquire an unseen example, finished in the best colours with exceptional provenance and fresh to market
