The car has covered just 27,800 miles from new by its 2 previous owners. Previously sold by NM& Co in 2010, this particular example benefits from upgrades from Prodrive to the engine, exhaust and suspension fitted in 2009 by ourselves.

Further benefits include a switchable exhaust system which allows 3 selectable levels of bark – ‘Quiet’, ‘Variable’ and ‘Sport’. The suspension upgrade incorporates Bilstein dampers and Eibach springs offering greater ride quality and performance thanks to electronically switchable settings of ‘Comfort’ and ‘Sport’.

- Vantage Volante coachworks by Daytona - Matching numbers example - Former property of the Daytona Motor Company - Over engineered to be better than the Aston supplied Volante With the demise of the DB6 Mk. II Volante in 1970, Aston Martin were not able to offer a convertible motorcar until the introduction of the V8 Volante. This presented the opportunity for enterprising engineering companies to occupy a niche in the marketplace to supply wealthy customers with a desire for something unique and unusual. Considered by many to be one of the most elegant of Aston Martins, the Volante has always been much admired and rightly so. This automatic transmission V8 is one of seven professionally converted to 'Volante' specification by the Daytona Motor Company of London. First registered in August 1978, this striking automatic example, presented in unmarked green with a sumptuous cream leather interior, is matching numbers and comes in desirable X-Pack specification. It was the final Vantage by 'Daytona' car and owned by Robert Blasi, the owner of Daytona Motor Company. The car came into his ownership by an unusual twist of fate; Daytona had fitted a left to righthand conversion on a Ferr

Variant name:VOLANTE , - One owner from new - Supplied new by Nicholas Mee - 7,500 miles from new - Complete with all original equipment First shown at the Birmingham International Motor Show in 1986, the Vantage Volante combined the Vantage X-pack 5.3 litre, 410bhp V8 engine, with the pleasure of open top motoring. Produced for 3 years just 76 right hand drive manual cars were built in total. Probably unrepeatable and certainly astonishing, this example of the flagship Vantage Volante has had just one owner from new and covered a grand total of 7,500 miles only. Supplied new by Nicholas Mee in 1987 this outstanding car has formed part of a private collection and has been professional maintained and annually MOT’d throughout its life. A testament to the superb build quality, the still original trim paint and hood are in perfect condition, displaying only the very slightest of age. With matching numbers, original specifications, a complete history from the original sales invoice through to today, it is difficult to think of a more complete package, appealing to the collector and driver alike. All fitted luggage, tools, jack, handbook and originally installed Nakamachi hi-fi system remain in place. This tick box example is supplied fully serviced and prepared, MOT’d and warrantied for 12 months.
The six cylinder William Towns styled DBS had been around for a couple of years anxiously awaiting the V8 engine that had been especially designed for it. In early 1970, the DBS V8 was finally ready to become one of the fastest cars available at the time. The 5.3 litre Tadek Marek designed engine was able to develop around 320bhp which gave the ability to reach 160mph; all this with space for four people. Demand for the car was great with production reaching 402 examples within just two years. From April 1972, the DBS V8 received a mild restyle and a new name. The 'DB' was dropped as David Brown had sold the company and the car became known simply as the 'Aston Martin V8'. The most visible change was the adoption of two seven inch quartz iodine headlamps and black mesh grill, the design of which was the work of the original designer, William Towns. This Aston Martin V8 was built on 20th October 1972 and despatched on 2nd February, 1973 to A & B Cars Ltd, in Newton-Le-Willows, Lancashire and was first registered on 25th October, 1972. The heritage trust certificate confirms the car was finished in Imperial Blue with natural trim interior and fitted with an automatic gearbox with fue
One of the last hand-built Aston Martins to be made; this outstanding example is everything you would expect from the ‘quintessentially British’ motoring legend that is Aston Martin. It’s the sheer presence of these formidable cars that first holds your attention. In classic Georgian Silver it really is stunning and a joy to behold from every angle. Few cars, even to this day, command quite the same level of awe and respect that is afforded to this masterpiece of automotive design. Then you have the interior; step inside and you are surrounded by hand-crafted opulence. Sumptuous Connolly Leather in Black, contrasting beautifully the traditional wood veneers and chrome fittings, surely this is one of Aston Martin’s finest hand-crafted interiors? The final part of the equation comes in the form of fabulous engineering. Nothing else sounds like a hand-built Aston Martin V8, just turning the key and revving the engine is enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, but of course it’s out on the open road that it all comes together. Power, Beauty and Soul First registered in 1997, this particular car has a FULL SERVICE HISTORY, has only covered a total of 34,700 miles sin
Variant name:VANTAGE V8 , - 17,400 miles only - 2 previous owners - Complete AM Service history - 1 of only 101 built - Supplied with 12 months warranty This outstanding example of the V8 Coupe with just 2 former owners from new, has covered only 17,400 miles. Chassis 79066 has an outstanding service history from Aston Martin Works and Heritage specialists, attesting to the careful ownership of this cherished car. Finished in the elegant colour of Galloway Green and complemented with Magnolia hides piped green with Walnut veneer finishers. One of just 101 examples built and in superb condition in every respect, the V8 Coupe is a true Grand Tourer, a delight to drive and be driven in. First shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 1996 the Aston Martin V8 Coupe, satisfied customer demand for a less complicated and more easily maintained AM, than the Supercharged V8 Vantage of the day. A naturally aspirated 350bhp Aston Martin V8 engine, transmitting power through a 4 speed automatic transmission and the use of the supercharged Vantage chassis architecture, resulted in superbly relaxed GT with a top speed of 155 mph and 0-60 in 5.9 seconds. Just 101 examples were built on the Newport Pagnell production line, over 3 years, before production of the entire V8 range ceased and the Newport Pagnell factory reconfigured for Vanquish production. A Grand Tourer of the old school, with a beautifully finished interior, subtle body styling and sufficient power, the V8 Coupe is a fitting swan song to the end of the 'coach built era', of Aston Martin production. Supplied with our usual highest standards of preparation and available to view in our West London showrooms now.

Externally, the grill was entirely new, no longer sweeping across the complete front but now tailored between the head lamps reminiscent of the earlier six cylinder models such as the DB3S. The engine, was by then the well tried and tested all alloy V8 designed by Tadek Marek that had made it’s first appearance in January 1967 at the Racing Car Show in London and raced by Lola in their Type 70 Mk III GT. The AM V8 series III was introduced in London, August 1973. The important mechanical difference was the replacement of the Bosch fuel injection system by four twin-choke down draught Weber carburettors, which produced a notably smother performance a

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was first introduced in 2005 to compete head to head against the Porsche 911. It was the second car to be built at Aston Martins purpose built Gaydon facility. This iconic car used the same technology as its “Big Brother” the DB9 and was built around an aluminium riveted and bonded VH (vertical-horizontal tub). This front/mid engine two seat sports car was fitted with the all new 4.litre V8 engine producing an impressive 380bhp. This engine coupled with a six speed gearbox and rear transaxle setup made for one of the most balanced cars on the market with a near 50/50 weight distribution. As with all hand built Aston Martins only the finest materials were used. The Aston Martin V8 4.3 Vantage t Coupe offered here at Hofmann’s is a 2006 “56 plate” and is finished in Meteorite Silver metallic with Phantom Grey and Falcon Grey Cherry leather interior. Having covered 59,071 miles this stunning example boasts a full service history most recently carried out at by ourselves here at Hofmanns at 58,400 miles. Over and above the standard specification our car benefits from: Bluetooth phone system, HID – Xenon headlamps, Satellite navigation, Heated front seats and
The Aston Martin V8 engine began development in the mid-sixties when it was first used in a Lola Sports racing car with a view to replacing the six-cylinder unit which had been in production since the DB4 in 1958. Aston Martin had converted a DB5 with an early V8 engine which was used for many thousands of development miles by the factory to create a usable and powerful eight-cylinder engine for use in the new DBS model that was due for production in 1968. Unfortunately, the engine wasn't ready in time for the launch of the DBS and it went on sale fitted with the six-cylinder engine used in the DB4/5/6. In 1971, the DBS V8 was launched, fitted with the long awaited Tadek Marek designed V8, an engine which powered all Aston Martin models until the launch of the DB7 in the early nineties. The DBS V8 was replaced by the V8 Series III and was unveiled to the press in London in August 1973. The shape of the new V8 was similar to the previous model but featured revised front end styling and one of the major differences was the replacement of the Bosch fuel injection system with Weber carburettors. A number of improvements were made to various other aspects of the car including improved c

The Aston Martin V8 range is the next big thing in the classic car market. These cars are fastly appreciating these days, and with a reason, as it is a magnificent car to drive, with ample power from the famous Tadek Marek developed V8 engine. The V8 was built by hand in the Newport Pagnell factory for a period that spreads from 1973 until 1989, and was one of the most expensive cars money could buy at the time. The one we have just received in our inventory is an early example from 1974. It has the pure lines from the pre-Oscar India cars, and is finished in one of the most beautiful colour combinations for the V8 range. The car was delivered new in England as a RHD car, The last Spanish owner had the car converted to LHD when he purchased the car in 2009. As LHD steering racks are not longer available, this must be one of the last converted cars. and is a unique selling point for this car on the Continent. It comes with a good history file, which states that it is a three owners car. There are many invoices in the file, and interesting documentation. It is a matching nrs, car, and still in its original colour combination but probably repainted once. As it is now 40 years old, it

This V8 Vantage Volante is 1 of a total of 167 Vantage Volantes produced by the factory. Of the 167 cars, 109 were true V8 Vantage Volantes with the full ‘580X-pack’ 400+ bhp engine (30 automatics & 79 manuals), 33 of these cars were left hand drive (for the European market) and 76 were right hand drive for the (UK market). Due to USA regulations the American market was left with the “Cosmetic Vantage Volante” with the less powerful Weber Marelli Fuel Injected engine as it would meet USA emission requirements. The factory thus exported 58 left hand drive examples to the USA. This V8 Vantage Volante was delivered new through Aston Martin factory distributor HWM Motors Ltd. to first owner Mr. D. Embleton, Esq. Subsequently, it was found itself in the ownership of Mr. T. Hazelton circa 2006, also a UK resident. During Mr. Hazelton’s ownership, the Vantage was serviced with Aston Heritage specialists, The Asto
