General description : 1987 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante X-Pack (RHD) for sale in London

1 of just 166 Vantage Volante examples built
1 of just 78 built with a manual gearbox
Recipient of a full bare metal respray in Chichester Blue
Supplied with an Aston Martin heritage certificate
Beautiful Ronal wheels
Manual gearbox
Just 3 former keepers

Produced to satisfy demands 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, boot spoiler (a feature the Volante had previously lacked) and extended front spoiler, while glass fibre extensions 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, all the more so when it came with the optional 432bhp ‘X-Pack’ engine.

A genuine Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante X-Pack, chassis number ‘15575’ comes with an Aston Martin heritage certificate showing the car still presents in its original colour combination of Chichester Blue with Parchment hide with Dark Blue piping. Our car has recently received a full, bare-metal respray and looks absolutely stunning, especially with its beautiful Ronal wheels which remain in fabulous condition, it will not disappoint upon final inspection. The Blue Mohair soft-top is also new and in superb condition as is the coachwork which is extremely straight and the chrome remains bright and un-pitted.

This car was sold by us to the last owner.

DD Classics is proud to offer such a rare and stunning example and believe it to be one of the finest examples currently available for sale in the world today.

Now available for viewing at the DD Classics Dealership in London, please call 0208 878 3355 for more information.

About Aston Martin
Aston Martin, one of Britain's best known sports car manufacturer, was founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford.

During its chequered financial history the company has had numerous owners taking over the company, Sir David Brown just to mention one.

Between the wars Bertelli was both technical director and designer of all new Aston Martins, thus known as "Bertelli cars". These included the 1½-litre "T-type", "International", "Le Mans", "MKII" its racing version, the "Ulster", and the 2-litre 15/98 and its race going derivative, the "Speed Model".

During the war years the company produced aircraft components.

In 1947, Aston was purchased and thus saved by Sir David Brown. The company also acquired Lagonda the same year for its 2.6-litre W. O. Bentley-designed engine. Both companies shared resources and workshops creating the iconic "DB" series of cars. In 1950, they presented the DB2, followed by the DB2/4 in 1953, the DB2/4 MkII in 1955, the DB Mark III in 1957.

DB4 with its strong Italian flavor and construction was introduced in 1958. The lightweight superleggera (tube-frame) body was designed by Carrozzeria Touring in Milan. Although the design and construction techniques were Italian, the DB4 was the first Aston to be built at the company's Newport Pagnell works in Buckinghamshire, England. The six-cylinder engines of these cars from 1954 up to 1965 were designed by Tadek Marek. Despite initial problems with cracking engine blocks DB4 was a success that really established the make together with its later derivates DB5, of James Bond Goldfinger fame, and more civilized DB6 Grand Tourer.

With the all new model DBS in the late 60's the company went to eight cylinder configuration when it was modified to Aston Martin v8 – a sort of Gentleman's muscle car.
