![CDATA[The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was hailed as Britains First Supercar for its 170 mph top speed when introduced. Straight-line performance was staggering, with acceleration from 060 mph in 5.3 seconds, one-tenth of a second quicker than the Ferrari Daytona, its main competitor of the time, and a 0-100mph time of 12.7 seconds. It became the worlds fastest accelerating production car due to the tuned version of the existing 5,340cc engine breathing through a quartet of 48mm Weber carburettors. Valves and ports were enlarged and the camshafts changed, resulting in an estimated maximum output of around 375bhp. With the optional 'X-Pack' power was increased to 432bhp, a significant upgrade. Stunning from every angle, the X-Pack Volante represents the pinnacle of decades of hand-assembled Aston Martin production. Readily distinguishable from the standard car by virtue of its blocked-off bonnet scoop, blanked air intake, front chin spoiler and lipped boot lid, this car is a stunning combination of beauty, luxury and power and is as rare today as it was when it first saw the light of day. This exceptional V8 Vantage Volante with X-Pack is one of only 30 cars ever produced mating the 580X engine to the smooth automatic transmission to create the ultimate coach built Grand Tourer.  Finished in Chichester Blue with Magnolia hides piped blue, the car is complemented by a dark blue mohair roof.  One of the very last cars ever built, chassis number 15804 has been with our vendor for a staggering 21 years and comes with an extensive history file documenting its life and care. The original owner was a Mr. K. Tandon of Mayfair, London who purchased and registered the car in his company name in November 1989. Mr. Tandon stored the car at his home, together with a number of other classics, until he sold the car in 1991 having covered just 450 miles.  The new owner, Mr. Leniham from Sheffield, was another car enthusiast with a small but not insignificant collection and he kept the car for just over a year during which time he had it serviced at Newport Pagnell.  In February 1992, the car was sold to Mr. Oliver of Oliver Valves Ltd in Cheshire, who again had it factory serviced in April 1993. In 1996, after three years, our vendor purchased the car via Old Town Trading Company for the sum of £75,000, and ownership has remained with him until this day both in the UK and six years in the Costa Del Sol, Spain where he resided until recently. With just 40,685 miles on the clock; the majority of which having been covered by the current owner, this example has been maintained regardless of cost.  The fabulous history file includes a fully documented maintenance history down to receipts for tyres,  and the mileage is warranted by the inclusion of every MoT test certificate since 1995 including the current one valid until January 2019. The car also comes with the original tool kit and complete Handbook Wallet Pack and is fitted with a sports exhaust together with a Kenwood satellite navigation system - the originals are also supplied should the new owner wish to return it to its original state. In production for only 3 years, the V8 Vantage Volante is one of Aston Martins most iconic models and is regarded as the ultimate example.   Viewing this exceptional car in person is highly recommended, and it certainly warrants the attention of collectors and drivers alike.]]
