Description

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante was a convertible sports car produced by British automobile manufacturer Aston Martin in the 1980s. It was first introduced in 1977 as a coupe, and the convertible version was added to the lineup in 1986.

The V8 Vantage Volante was powered by a 5.3-liter V8 engine that produced 380 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. It was mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 5.2 seconds, with a top speed of 170 mph.

The exterior design of the V8 Vantage Volante was sleek and sporty, with a long hood, short overhangs, and a low stance. The convertible top was made of canvas and could be lowered or raised manually.

Inside, the V8 Vantage Volante was luxurious and comfortable, with leather seats, air conditioning, power windows, and a premium sound system.

The V8 Vantage Volante was a popular choice among sports car enthusiasts in the 1980s, and it remains a sought-after classic today. Its combination of power, style, and luxury make it a true icon of British automotive engineering.

This special Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante was inspired by the enthusiastic and passionate follower of Aston Martin cars, Andre Bloom. Andre had an eye for the unusual and a positive drive to get exactly what he wanted, and this unique car was his dream machine. Built from a 1980 standard Aston martin V8 Volante to a powerful X Pack vantage specification with a Manual five speed dog leg gearbox. The steering, suspension and brakes to Vantage specification with Ronal wheels. The bodywork was re-designed to Vantage flared arches, Vantage front Spoiler and rear under valance. The side markers removed, and later indicators fitted, the list is endless. The car was painted BMW Glacier Blue, with a dark blue mohair hood covering. Later door locks fitted and a lot finer tuning to cosmetics and trim just to make the car more personal and unique. A true testament to an enthusiastic Aston Martin follower and a personal stamp on the marque and how the dream become reality.
