Introduced at the 1996 Geneva Salon, the V8 Coupe was added to the Aston Martin range which then included the Vantage and Volante models. More elegant than the otherwise similar Vantage, the V8 Coupe has slimmer wheel arches, distinctive 6-blade OZ Saturn alloy wheels and a less overt front air dam. It is powered by a normally aspirated version of the 5340cc quad-cam, 32 valve V8 Vantage engine, producing a still impressive 350 bhp and 369 ft lb of torque. The automatic version would complete the 0-60 dash in 5.9 seconds and reach a top speed of over 155 mph. The production run continued until 1999 and reached a total of 101 examples – it is a rare car by any standards.

My V8 Coupe is number 60 and is a matching numbers example delivered in September 1997, finished in Buckingham Green metallic with a beautiful Light Grey leather interior piped in Black and Blue Wilton carpets. The odometer reading of just 56,500 miles is supported by the service book which includes 14 stamps.

Most significantly, it is unique in being fitted with a manual gearbox. The installation was undertaken by the well-respected Aston Martin specialists Goldsmith and Young in 2006 and has recently been supplemented by the installation of a 3.54:1 limited slip differential, as fitted to the Vantage. The majority of Vantages also had manual gearboxes, so my V8 Coupe is the closest to the Vantage in terms of the driver experience, while being significantly less complex and costly to maintain and available at a fraction of the price of a Vantage.

The history records with the car show a total expenditure of over £64,000. The most recent service was undertaken by Vantage Engineering in April 2020 at a cost of over £9,000 and included an MOT to April 2021. The car has been valued at £175,000 and is insured for that figure. The impressive specification includes sports exhaust, cruise control, heated electric front seats, remote central locking and climate control. During my almost 3 years ownership I have enjoyed trouble-free trips to central France and Scotland. Included are the Owner’s Guide, Technical Guide and Parts Manual.

These limited-edition, Newport Pagnell built V8 Coupes are among the last truly hand-built Aston Martins, they offer extreme levels of comfort, effortless performance and discreet exclusivity and are becoming increasingly collectable. My unique version is ready for immediate use and enjoyment.
