1989 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante – PoW Adaptation
£375,000 | Location: United Kingdom
The distinguished V8 Vantage Volante we are delighted to offer, one of just 76 UK specified examples built, was sold and delivered to its first owner via Nicholas Mee in 1990. Remaining unused until 1996 when first put on the road, subsequent owners included well known Aston Martin enthusiasts, before being acquired by the last owner in 2015, with 30k miles recorded.
During 2015, this exceptional Vantage Volante was expertly adapted to PoW (Prince of Wales) specifications by recognised Aston Martin specialists. Employing former Aston Martin craftsmen, the completed transformation is to the highest factory standards. Well recorded with a complete photographic record, prior to and post adaptation, all associated invoices are available. The works included extensive body fabrication, a bare metal re-paint in Cumberland Grey, the whole interior and PoW upgrades, trimmed in highest quality Black hides and carpets, whilst all interior finishes have been re-veneered and polished. A newly tailored hood in matching Black Boyriven fabric, tops the completed transformation.
Familiar to many in this colour combination as Commander Bonds V8 Volante, featured in ‘The Living Daylights’, this superbly adapted Vantage Volante is available, at a fraction of the cost of an original PoW specified example.
Regarded in period as Britons most powerful convertible, the V8 Vantage Volante, equipped as this car is, with the famed 410 bhp V8 ‘X’ Pack engine and 5 speed manual transmission, could reach 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds, with a top speed, of over 160 mph in arm chair comfort.
Supplied fully serviced and prepared to the highest standards, with 12 months warranty and MoT certificate, the cars accompanying file contains a complete record of ownership from new, service & maintenance invoices, MoT’s and highly detailed photographs of the Adaptative works carried out.
