Description

A superbly original example of the rare Aston Martin V8 Coupe. Built in 1996 this exceptional car has had just one owner from new and remarkably covered just 12,500 miles. Boasting an unmarked interior and still with its original factory ‘mirror finish’ paintwork, this highly attractive example is finished in special colour Porsche Midnight Blue with Parchment hides piped dark Blue. Options fitted when new include a factory sports exhaust.

Just 101 examples of the V8 Coupe were produced on the same chassis as the Vantage V550 and V600 models, all built between 1996-9. Less complex and requiring less maintenance than its supercharged stablemate, due in part, to being equipped with the normally aspirated 5.3 litre Aston Martin V8 engine of 350 bhp. Fitted with 4 speed automatic transmission, the V8 Coupe’s power output remains enough to propel the car to over 155 mph and cover 0-60 mph, in under 6.0 seconds.

A true Grand Tourer of the coach-built era, sporting a large boot, a well-appointed cabin and comfortable seating, the V8 Coupe’s elegant stance and sophistication, combined with its purposeful performance, provides a credible alternative to the coupe’s Supercharged counterpart. All at a substantially lower price point.

On show in our Hertfordshire showrooms, the car is supplied fully prepared, serviced, warranted and MoT’d.
