In 1978, Aston Martin introduced an open-top variant of its V-8 powered saloon, resurrecting the Volante nomenclature used 10 years earlier on the DB6. Chassis 15190 is a handsome and extremely well-documented example of Newport Pagnell’s desirable first-series V8 Volante. According to its factory build record, the Volante was dispatched in July 1980 to Swiss distributor Hans Fischer. The car presents beautifully today, and is equipped with the desirable manual gearbox and elegant European bumpers. The Aston Martin was only modestly driven at first, as the odometer showed 66,600 km (41,383 miles) when purchased in November 1997 by the next owner of record, Markus Stebler of Uetikon am See, Switzerland. During the early 2000s, Mr. Stebler conducted a rebuild of the matching-numbers engine and sympathetically freshened the car for event use, including three tours of the British Classic Car Meeting St. Moritz through the Swiss Alps. After being acquired by the consignor in 2007, the Aston Martin ran the St. Moritz event eight more times while being consistently maintained as needed, with over 100 pages of records and correspondence on file. Registered in Switzerland for all of its known private ownership, this example of the early carbureted Volante offers enjoyable open-air motoring enhanced by the power of its iconic V-8.
