“On the road, the Zagato eats up the long straights. Once moving its progress is magnificently effortless. Like most very fast cars, it’s as if it isn’t constrained by the physical laws of gravity and air resistance. Unlike most very fast cars, however, it fools its driver into thinking that its blistering, growling pace is normal, comfortable, undramatic.” – Motor.
Given the success of the coupé, a Zagato Volante convertible was not long coming and twelve months after the coupé’s debut, the first Volante appeared at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1987.
Aston Martin Limited took the decision to produce the car with the less powerful V585 fuel-injected 320bhp engine. Without the requirement of a bulky air box to clear the Vantage’s quartet of Webers, the Volante did not need the huge power bulge in the middle of the bonnet as per the coupe.
A total of just 37 were produced and only 6 in Vantage Zagato Volante specification.
The Vantage Zagato Volante utilised the V580X engine, producing a staggering 432BHP. Cosmetic changes included the power bulge in the bonnet plus and original lights and grille per the coupe version.
‘G909 CPL’ was first registered in 1990 and was part of the famous ‘Hunter Green’ collection, this was a collection of nine V8 cars all built to the same specification Hunter Green with tan hide. They comprised of V8 saloon, V8 Vantage, V8 Volante, V8 Vantage Volante, V8 Vantage Volante PoW, V8 Vantage Zagato, V8 Zagato Volante, Lagonda and Virage. This unique collection was eventually sold at the 2005 Bonhams Aston Martin auction held at Newport Pagnell.
Displaying only 12,598 miles from new this is a fantastic opportunity to purchase one of the rarest Aston Martins ever produced.
**Please note: This vehicle is currently nearing completion of a comprehensive total restoration with completion scheduled within the next few weeks. This, without doubt, will be among the very best examples available of this increasingly iconic classic Aston Martin
