Description

1988 ASTON MARTIN V8 VANTAGE VOLANTE – ‘X’-Pack

Finished in the superb colour combination of Chichester Blue over Tan hides, piped blue, complemented by a Dark Blue mohair type fabric hood, we are delighted to offer this V8 Vantage Volante, an example of the highest quality and condition.

By popular demand, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante was first shown at the Birmingham international motor show in 1986, remaining in production for just 3 years. The Vantage Volante, powered by the 580 ‘X-Pack’ specification engine, combines an open-air experience with the sporting characteristics delivered by the Vantage engine and chassis specifications. A potent combination, which when combined with the automatic transmission, provides convenience and a refined driving experience. The most powerful convertible of the day, with 410bhp on tap, the Vantage Volante was hand built by the famed craftsmen and engineers at the Newport Pagnell factory.

The example offered here, is one of just 109 right hand drive examples constructed, of which just a handful were equipped with automatic transmission, was delivered new in 1988. Regularly maintained by Aston Martin and specialist agents and from 2018, within our own workshops, this superbly specified car is fitted with a number of subtle upgrades to the interior, including a professionally installed custom audio system, additional door pockets and ‘POW’ type centre console and removable wind deflector.

Highly specified and meticulously maintained, the car is supplied complete with a bound service history, containing its original stamped service book, original owners handbook and previous MoT certificates, as well as detailed maintenance invoices for works received and is complete with its original tool roll, vehicle jack and warning triangle, as equipped when news. .

This rare and exciting V8 Vantage Volante is available for viewing and demonstration now at our Hertfordshire showrooms.
