ASTON MARTIN V8 VANTAGE For Sale (1977)Aston Martin V8 Vantage – 1977S
The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was hailed at its 1977 introduction as "Britain's First Supercar" for its 170 mph (270 km/h) top speed. Its engine was shared with the Lagonda, but it used high-performance camshafts, increased compression ratio, larger inlet valves and bigger carburettors mounted on new manifolds for increased output. Straight-line performance was the best of the day, with acceleration from 0–60 mph (97 km/h) in 5.3 seconds, one-tenth of a second quicker than the Ferrari Daytona.Finished in Storm Red with Cream leather interior and fitted with the later style BBS wheels this rare classic is No 14 of only 16 built and has only 3 owners from new, the last owner of 25 years buying the car from ourselves in 1987.
The car had new sills and restoration in the mid 1990’s and has recently been recommissioned with a full brake rebuild including new front discs, rebuilt brake callipers all round, new rear brake pads and handbrake with rebuilt servos.
The engine bay has been detailed, the engine Dyno Tuned and vehicle has a current MOT.
With V8 Aston’s increasing in value and the Vantage being arguably the most desirable this will surely prove to be a valuable investment for the more discerning collector.
Any inspection, either personal or professional (AA, RAC etc) is welcome. A part exchange may be considered.
