1989 Aston Martin V8 Vantage X-Pack Volante Manual (RHD)
1 of 109 V8 V580X Volantes built worldwide
Formerly part of a significate private collection
6th from last of the line
Just 38,500 miles from new
Britains 1st Supercar convertible
An asset for any collection   Finished in the sublime colour combination of Rolls Royce Balmoral Green coachwork with Cognac Connelly hide, matching dark Green Wilton carpets piped, Anthracite Black Mohair soft top and fitted Lamb's wool over rugs. As per the ‚Works‚ Heritage certificate and build records that this particular example was built for the UK home market and ordered to V8 Vantage X-Pack 430 BHP specification making our car 1 of only 109 cars built worldwide. Specially ordered in manual form from new making this car, even more, rarer and only 1 of only 79 cars built in this configuration, additionally this example was 6th from last of the line V580X Vantage Volante to roll off the factory line in¬† 1989 to add to its rarity.¬† Additional features of the flagship Aston, included Ronal alloy wheels, Cibe headlights, Air Conditioning, Large bore sports exhaust, Fully electronic soft top with heated rear window and Nardi wood steering wheel. Interest in these last of the line X-Packs has grown in recent years twinned with the short production run making this truly a unique opportunity to own possibly one of the finest British Supercars and make a wonderful addition to any collection. Having been impeccably maintained regardless of cost throughout its life this particular example has covered just 38,500 from new equating to annual mileage of 1,283 miles. Accompanying the car are the owner-drivers book pack, service book, tool roll & jack.   Between March 1977 and December 1989, the V8 Vantage was the only British member of the Supercar club. It may have weighed as much as a house (about 1800 kg actually) but could see off the skimpy Ferrari 512BB and Testarossa plus the Lamborghini Countach with aplomb and carry an extra two passengers. Since the Vantage‚s introduction in 1977 customers had requested an open version. Aston officially refused to build such a car due to concerns with safety at high speeds.¬†Vantage state of tune was only fitted by the factory to the V8 Vantage coupe until 1986 when the Vantage Volante was officially released.¬†¬†Before this time no officially certified Volantes with Vantage engines left the factory with full type approval. It was to be 1986 before the Vantage Volante came to fruition. Its shape was inspired by¬†V8COR15363,¬†a car built for the Brunei Royal family. After much discussion between engineering and marketing, the final shape was derived. No wind tunnel testing was involved so engineering made calculations and added 15% for an extra safety margin. Hence the overly be-spoilered and fendered Vantage Volante was born. It used the same mechanicals as the V8 Vantage and benefited from lessons learnt in Zagato development. By the time production ceased 167 Vantage Volantes were built of which 109 cars were built to X-Pack specification, the first in 1986, the last in 1989, beginning at chassis number V8CHR15506 and ending at V8VKL15847.   Now available for viewing at the¬†DD Classics Dealership in London, please¬†call 0208 878 3355¬†for more information.
