Aston Martin 1978 V8 Vantage


car description

This is a beautiful 1978 Aston Martin V8 Vantage saloon with manual gearbox. Finished in the very dark blue with light blue hide. An extremely well cared for example who's chassis number shows it as in the series IV production. Only 361 V8 Vantages were ever produced, having revised camshafts, larger inlet valves and carburettors, new inlet manifolds and plugs which gave the Vantage a whopping 40% increase in power over the standard V8! Top speed of 170 mph and 0-60 of 5.2 seconds! no wonder it was claimed to be the fastest production car in the world at the time! This car was originally registered in November 1978 and has remained largely in storage since 1994 having covered some 2,000 miles in that time. An exceptional car in many ways!
