We are delighted to offer this truly outstanding, former AMOC Blenheim Palace Concours car onto the market. This top-quality example is a matching numbers car, with full history and provenance is further enhanced by the cars first owner being Roger Taylor of Queen. After being owned by Roger Taylor, the car was acquired by well-known Aston Martin aficionado, Howard Masters and it was then the subject of a body restoration by Alan Smith Motors with re-trimming by Gary Wright, before the Volante change hands for the third time in 2013. It is a reflection of the quality of that work that the car was placed third at the AMOC Concours at Blenheim in June 2000.

The V8 Volante is a unique combination of sports car performance and handling, limousine luxury and the sort of open air motoring which has excited and thrilled customers for decades. Described by former Aston Martin Chairman Victor Gauntlett as, ‘a stylish thoroughbred, beautifully built, luxurious, fast and immensely safe,' the V8 was built in several variants, one of which was the more exclusive Volante convertible. 1978 saw the introduction of a much awaited Volante convertible, with a power operated fully lined hood.

Throughout its life, it has been superbly maintained and is presented today in outstanding condition in what many consider to be the ideal colour combination for the car. Buckingham Green coach-work with matching Mohair hood and Magnolia piped with Green seats, complemented with a lovely Green top-roll, gearbox facia tunnel and matching Green carpets, all remain in fabulous condition. Original service book plus two continuation Aston Martin service books are still with the car and confirm H.W Motors Ltd, Walton on Thames supplied the car new to Roger Taylor on the 25th October 1979. The supplying dealer serviced the Aston at 1078, 4500 and 9370 miles before Ian Mason Aston Martin Services took over maintenance at 21154, 29488, 36641, 42689, 46238, 50485, 55576, 64060, 69008, 70839, 73588, 75459, 76520, 78206, 79623 and finally at 80199 in 1997. Runnymede Motor Company then serviced the car at 81540, 85046, 93520 and 99381 miles. The most recent service was carried out by a London based dealership at 101536 miles in 2018. Adding to the impressive service books are invoices for maintenance and service work dating back to the 1980's, MOT's going back over 20 years, spare keys and handbook.

EPF 889V is an incredible car in exceptional condition. Not only is the cosmetic condition first class with a beautifully presented underside, immaculate paint and bodywork, stunning Magnolia trim, as new hood and detailed show level engine bay, but it has the provenance of an exceptional history with maintenance by one Aston Martin service garage for the majority of its life. The Aston Martin is sensational to drive with tremendous power coming from a 5,340 cc V8 engine and its automatic gearbox provides smooth gear changes allowing for pleasurable, regular use. This is an incredible opportunity to own an iconic and fastidiously maintained British Gentlemen's muscle car with famous ownership history.
