Produced to satisfy demand from the USA, the Volante convertible debuted in 1978, but it was not until 1986 that it became available to Vantage specification, which by this time meant around 400bhp. Along with the Vantage engine and bonnet came flared wheel arches, a boot spoiler (a feature the Volante had previously lacked) and extended front spoiler and glass fibre extensions that replaced the model’s hitherto characteristic chromed sill covers. The result was a muscular, aggressive-looking car that could justifiably claim to be the world’s fastest convertible, even more so when it came with the optional 432bhp ‘X-Pack’ engine.

Meticulously maintained and never used in bad weather this example is presented in fantastic condition and requires no work. It is presented in a classic colour combination of Balmoral green with tan interior. The engine holds the correct number of type 580X and retains the original quad-downdraught carburettors setup. All rubber elements, filters and brakes have been replaced and the engine has received a complete service by Aston Martin specialists. This level of condition is mirrored in the body, hood and interior, where the hood and leather have been regularly treated and maintained.

The car comes with original Ronal wheels which were produced later in the Vantage production cycle but have now become exceptionally rare. It also comes with its toolkit that is comprised of 100% correct components.
