Chassis no. V8VOL12363; Engine no. V5802363V. White over white leather. 5341/406hp, four Weber carburetors, 5-speed, BBS alloy wheels, Avon Turbospeed tires, Alpine CD stereo, air conditioning, Lucas headlights, Cibie driving lights.

Evaluation: Restored by Aston Martin Heritage in 2018 and apparently unused since. Aston Martin Heritage Certificate confirms the engine number as original. A beautiful car and desirable ‘Oscar India’ model, which denotes the second series V8 Vantage as a codename for ‘October Introduction.’

Bottom Line: Presented to extremely high standards in dramatic colors and seemingly correct in every aspect after years of attention by a French Aston Martin specialist this is an elegant and powerful Aston with exceptional specifications and a realistic price.
