Background:; Following the success of the Limited Edition V8 Coupe, the new 'Vantage' style V8 Coupe was introduced on the 5th of March 1996, at the Geneva Motor Show, alongside the DB7 Volante. Whereas all ten of the Limited Edition V8 Coupes shared many external features with the preceding Virage, the new V8 Coupe reflects the overall design themes and the smooth flowing aerodynamic lines of the Vantage, as was the case with most of the suspension system. However, it has its own distinctive design radiator intake, six spoke 18' x 8.5' alloy road wheels, and circular auxiliary driving lamps integrated within the front spoiler. Special compound 255 / 50 ZR18 Pirelli P Zero tyres were developed for the new model. The quad cam engine has 4 valves per cylinder, (last used by Aston Martin in 1921-2) and produces 350 horsepower. This was a further development of the now legendary Tadek Marek designed all alloy V8, with its racing pedigree. Improved cylinder heads, camshafts and pistons were fitted,together with an 'Alpha Plus' electronically controlled engine management system. According to Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd., the new V8 Coupe could reach 60 M.P.H. in less than 6.0 seconds and has a maximum speed in excess of 150 m.p.h. Naturally with the use of a three way catalytic exhaust system, the engine runs on unleaded fuel. However, for countries where leaded petrol is still the norm, a non-catalyst system was available. In effect, it is a 'worldwide' engine compatible for all markets. The 4-speed automatic transmission is electronically controlled with Sport and Touring modes. Anti-lock AP / PBR brakes are fitted to all four wheels, with ventilated discs and four pot callipers. With a servo-assisted tandem master cylinder, the brakes are independent front and rear, controlled by a Bosch 4 channel ABS system. The power assisted rack and pinion steering is speed sensitive. The rear axle is fitted with a limited slip differential. All body panels are hand crafted in aluminium. Requiring tenConnolly hides each luxurious interior could be tailored to individual tastes. Burr Walnut is used for the facia panel, centre console and door cappings, and Wilton carpet for the floor covering. There are a minimum of twelve separate coats of paint applied to each complete body. There is power assistance for the adjustment of the driver and front passenger seats. A sophisticated climate control system is provided together with a stereo, radio, cassette and CD player. For the final touch of luxury, cruise control is fitted for long distance touring. Summary:; Over the past 2/3 years, the market has come to recognize the value of the classic V8 Coupe. Some of the last hand-built Aston Martins from their traditional home at Newport Pagnell - they are identified as landmark cars. In conversation with a previous Registrar of the AMOC, the current owner discovered that the paint finish on the car, Montrose Blue, was a unique choice - the only car produced in that colour - add an appropriate number platethat stays with the car and you have a very special car. But the real reason this car will be chosen by its next owner is its outstanding condition, its history and the pleasure derived behind the wheel - a useable and beautiful classic Aston Martin. Vehicle History; One of the very last of the hand-built Aston Martins, this lovely car was registered first by Grange Aston Martin as a demonstrator on 29th September 1999 and remained in their care until August of the following year when it was transferred to the appropriately named Peter James Bond!; He owned the car for two years before selling it to Jonathan Durden who owned the car for just over a year before it was registered in the name of dealer, Lancaster Cars who then sold the car in September 2004 to the current owner. A businessman with offices in London and New York, the car has divided its time between the owner's London home and a discreet storage facility in Hampshire while the owner is the other side of the Atlantic - this wouldaccount for the fact that although it has been the owner's main car, the mileage total remains modest. But modest mileages have not stopped the regular maintenance of the car and, as a result she presents beautifully and drives perfectly. It is perhaps a mark of that excellence that returning to his car outside his apartment in London, the owner found a postcard on the screen. It was from John Heffernan who with Ken Greenley designed the car for Aston Martin alongside the contemporary Bentley Continental - he remarked on how nice it was to see one of 'his' cars being used.

Last of the hand built, Ford tenure Aston's 5.3-litre V8,349bhp,369lb/ft, 0-60 in 5.9secs and 170mphSuperbly presented in Buckingham Green with Magnolia hide piped in GreenFirst registered to Aston Martin and sold to its only owner after three monthsTop Drawer service history with 14 stamps from Aston Martin Works. 28,500 miles Works 'Safety Check at 18,452 miles. A full set of invoices detailing attentionVery rare car. Number 48 of only 101 Coupés built Under Ford Motor Groups tenure in the early nineties, Aston Martin launched the V8 Coupé at the 1992 British International Motor Show and such was the transformation that it only bore a passing resemblance to the Virage. The new car's styling was comprehensively updated to create a far more aggressive appearance, every panel, with the exception of door skins and roof, being different to that of the Virage. Revised cylinder heads, camshafts and pistons were also added along with twin Eaton Superchargers giving the new car an impressive 550bhp.Significant improvements to chassis and braking systems, larger wheels and tyres, and a completely new interior with Connolly hides and Burr Walnut fascias rounded off the new car. With the demise of the Virage in 1995, and for those customers who liked the look of the new Vantage but didn't want the brutal power of the twin supercharged V550, Aston Martin began to offer the 'V8 Coupe' which was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1996. This model shared the same chassis and body as the Vantage V550, with minor revisions to wheel arches and grille, and had basically the same interior. It also shared the same enhanced 5.3-litre V8 in fuel injected form, but without the twin superchargers, mated to a 4-speed Chrysler 'TorqueFlite' automatic gearbox resulting in a more relaxed uncomplicated car but still an Aston Martin with 350 bhp and a 0-60 time of 5.9 seconds!Production of the V8 Coupe ran until 1999 by which time only 101 examples had been built, one of the last truly hand-built Astonsbeforethe factory geared up for Vanquish production.This lovely example is finished in Buckingham Green with matching carpets and piping on the Magnolia leather seating. Number 48 of just 101, it was first registered in September 1999 to Aston Martin themselves before being sold a few months later to its one and only keeper who has diligently returned it for servicing on every single occasion to the factory where it was built. A one hundred per cent service record at the Newport Pagnell Works is the automotive equivalent of a Coutts chequebook and it doesn't get much better. There are 14 service stamps in the book from the first at 494 miles on 25/05/2000 to the most recent at 28,335 miles on 27/09/2016 and the car was subject to a Works Safety Check at 18,452 miles. The current indicated mileage is around 28,500 and the car's Ownership File contains detailed invoices relating to its attention at the factory. As you might expect, given its low mileage and history of care, this rare Aston is insuperbcondition both cosmetically and mechanically. The V8 Coupe was the 'last of the breed' before the arrival of the new era DB7 Vantage V12 and the Vanquish, and as such will always remain desirable and collectable, looking particularly appealing at today's guide and half the price of a V550.
