Ordered and supplied new in 1987 via Nicholas Mee, we are delighted to offer this remarkable V8 Vantage Volante with ‘X‘ Pack Vantage engine and 5 speed manual gearbox. Remarkable, in having covered a total of just 7,600 miles from new.
Finished in Burnham Green with Magnolia hide, piped green with its original matching ‘everflex’ convertible hood. This ‘time warp’ example is still in its first un-marked paint finish, with original and immaculate trim and hood. All matching numbers, professional maintained and annually MOT’d throughout its life, whilst forming part of a small private collection.
Premiered at the Birmingham International Motor Show in 1986, the Vantage Volante combined the 410bhp V8 Vantage X-Pack engine, with distinctive aerodynamic aids to produce the ultimate in period, of open top motoring. Over 3 years of production, 76 right hand drive cars were built, in total, of which, a number were built with automatic gearboxes.
A testament to the superb hand-built quality, the original trim paint and hood are in perfect condition, displaying only the slightest of age, commensurate with the mileage covered. A complete history file from the date of order to today, including the original sales invoice, maintenance records, owners handbook, MoT certificates, build records and relevant correspondence, accompanies the car. Additionally the originally fitted Tanner Krolle luggage set, tool roll, jack and period factory fitted Nakamachi hi-fi system remain installed.
This tick box and time warp example, which was retained by its first owner for 30 years, is supplied fully serviced and prepared, freshly MOT’d and warranted for 12 months.
