Lot No. 378 - 1995 Aston Martin Virage 5.3 Factory Widebody Volante Estimate: £75,000 - £85,000 Buyers Premium 12.5% + VAT -One of 26 Factory-built, Widebody Volantes with the 5.3-litre V8 engine. Automatic transmission -UK-supplied in right-hand drive, one previous owner and 25,000 miles from new -Finished in Aston Green with magnolia leather, piped in dark green with dark green carpets. Black Mohair hood -Accompanied by an impressive history file, toolkit, manuals, books, spare keys etc -June 2020 service and inspection by JCT Aston Martin and now ready for V8 Volante motoring The Volante (convertible) had been the big seller of the previous generation of AM V8s, so the only surprise was that it took Aston Martin more than two years from the Virage Coupé's introduction to come up with a soft-top sister. The production Virage Volante debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1991, a prototype having been displayed at Birmingham's NEC the previous October. Weighing in at over two tons, the open Volante was even heavier than the closed coupé, itself no lightweight, this increase in weight is accounted for by considerable body strengthening to compensate for the absent roof, plus the extra complication of the power-operated convertible hood. Electrically powered, the latter was beautifully made and incorporated a glass rear window, complete with heated de-misting elements. Mechanically the Volante remained much the same as its closed cousin, though with a slightly lower final drive. Top speed was slightly reduced also to a still outstanding, 150mph. Automatic transmission was standard on the Volante, the original three-speeder being superseded in 1993 by a new four-speed dual-mode (normal/sport) unit as featured on this particular car. This, UK-supplied, right-hand drive Virage Volante is one of 26 factory-built cars with the 5.3-litre V8 engine. It is superbly finished in Aston Green with Magnolia leather, piped in dark green with dark green carpets and a black mohair hood. This automatic example has only covered some 25,000 miles from new with one previous owner. There is a documented speedo change in the history file, so the car's odometer currently shows 12,400 miles (full details in the file). Accompanying this rare Aston is a very impressive history file, which contains all the details of the full-service history along with all the books, manuals, toolkit and spare keys. On the 9th June, 2020 JCT Aston Martin Leeds serviced the car along with an inspection, again with all details in the accompanying service book and invoice in the file, meaning this example is on the button ready for the next owner to enjoy. Low ownership, low miles, good history and low production numbers, makes this example a very interesting proposition.
