Defined as having an advantage over it contemporaries, the Vantage of the 1980s, was of no exception. Offering more than 25% additional power over and above the standard V8s of the era. Equipped with more power, uprated chassis specifications and 5 speed manual transmissions, the V8 Vantage in the early 80s laid claim to being Britons First Supercar, accelerating from 0- 60mph in 5.2 seconds and topping out at 170 mph.

The left hand drive example we are pleased to offer, originally supplied via AM for export to the Middle East, has in more recent years been the recipient of a substantial programme of restorative works and upgrades carried out by Aston Martin Works, bringing it to the exceptional standard as presented.

This cars comprehensive history file, includes a detailed assessment and chronicle of the works carried out by Aston Martin in 2014 including chassis works, a bare metal repaint to original colours of Royal Cherry over Parchment hides and complete engine rebuild to later X-Pack specifications. A gearbox rebuild and application of factory uprated braking, steering and suspension upgrades were simultaneously carried out.

The scope and execution of the works completed on behalf of the last owner, has bought this rare (1 of 127 examples) and original left hand drive example to its current outstanding condition. Professionally stored and very lightly used since completed, the car is ready for its next custodian to cherish and enjoy, whilst taking advantage of the considerable expenditure recorded.
