After the success of the DB range in the late 1960s Aston Martin had to update and create a car suitable for the 1970s but unlike many of its rivals they managed to design a stunning car.
With the DB S range which included the ubiquitous 6 cylinder engine but also offered the race designed V8 engine for the first time.
After the success of the Coupe inc. many celebrity and film appearances the Volante was released to an eager market in 1978 and was without question the King of the Supercar convertibles with its magnificent engine and 5 second 0-60mph time!
This stunning Volante was the second rhd car produced for the UK market the first being for the MD of Aston and lived in Jersey for its first 10 years then moving back to the mainland its next owners included the famous newspaper businessman Eddie Shah who purchased her in 1995 and during his ownership in 1998 the engine was enhanced at great expense to Vantage V580 specification inc the correct exhaust etc. at a cost of £26000 at the Stratton motor company an Aston dealer authorised to carry out this work by the factory.
The engine has only covered around 38000 miles since this work and is amazingly powerful with its Weber carbs complimenting the soundtrack of the quad cam masterpiece.
This is a matching numbers rare manual gearbox car offered for the first time in 14 years and has an amazing history file including early service records, all mot certification, invoices for all work carried out inc engine upgrade at Aston dealers and specialists inc. Aston Heritage London, Aston Workshop Durham.
A cosmetic repaint in Buckingham Green was carried out by Aston Workshop in 2003 costing around £20000 still presenting beautifully today and included fitting the deep front Vantage spoiler.
Previous owners have lavished many thousands on maintaining her to the best possible condition resulting in one of the best Volante manuals available.
On the road you cannot fail be impressed with its amazing presence and incredible to think this is a 40 year supercar that can still surprise many modern drivers with its agility.
The manual gearbox transforms the car making it a much sportier and fun proposition belying its age and weight!
With 30 Vantage spec cars produced by the factory and only 19 manual this upgraded example is a fantastic investment following on the success of the DB range and is ready to be used and enjoyed on any style of trip.

Supplied fully inspected, serviced and with a comprehensive 12 month warranty.
