We are delighted to be able to offer for sale this stunning and quite possibly unique right hand drive Aston Martin V8 Saloon, complete with Vantage X Pack Specification engine. First registered in March 1985, this example was purchased by its former keeper via a Bonham’s Auction held at Works Service and in late 2002/early 2003 its new keeper sent the car to Aston Martin Works Service at Newport Pagnell and gave them the brief to create a very authentic copy of the “Winterised” Aston Martin V8 Saloon, which was driven by 007 (Timothy Dalton) in the James Bond Film – The Living Daylights. It has to be said that apart from being a real head turner, this car is fabulous to drive and is presented in stunning condition and will be serviced by its creators before being handed over to its new keeper. Works carried out by AM Works Service included, but was not limited to removing the engine and rebuilding to Full Vantage “580” X Pack Specification – including being modified to run on unleaded fuel, removing the original automatic gearbox and replacing with a 5 speed manual gearbox with a 3.54:1 ratio hypoid assembly. Other areas that were overhauled included the cooling, braking and electrical systems. The suspension system was uprated to Vantage Specification and new 16” Ronal Alloy Wheels were fitted. The interior was removed, its veneer panels refinished and a new surround for the gear lever was made, the headlining was removed and a new Webasto Roof was installed, with grey hide headlining. All interior and luggage compartment carpeting was renewed. New front and rear windscreens were also fitted. The exterior of car was striped to bare metal and new front and rear flared wing panels were produced and any corroded areas were repaired at this time. The exterior was then painted in the correct colour – Cumberland Grey. To complete the appearance of the car a set of cosmetic Ski’s were produced by Q branch at Works Service, as well as a dummy rear rocket booster, which can fitted to the car when not in use or on display! The car is also supplied with the original number used on the car in the film – B549 WUU! It is also supplied a comprehensive history file detailing all the works that have been carried out, including the original service voucher booklet and owner’s manual. The car has covered a total of 65,000 Miles from new and has had a total of 5 Keepers (two of which were the previous owner – it was registered in his name and his company name). The project cost over £134,000.00 to complete and it should be noted that this cost did not include the donor car and we are sure that if such project were to entered into today, the cost would be considerably more!
It has to be said that apart from being a real head turner, this car is fabulous to drive and is presented in stunning condition.
It was recently serviced by R.S. Williams Ltd at a cost of over £9,000.00.
Please note that this car is currently in storage, so viewing by prior appointment only please!
**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
