Aston Martin V8 upgraded to Vantage spec, Red, for sale in Beamish, Bucks, price on application.
The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was announced on 18th February 1977. Revised camshafts, air-box, larger inlet valves and carburettors, new inlet manifolds and different plugs, claimed to provide an increase in power of 40% and 10% more torque. The same ZF manual gearbox as in the V8 Saloon was standard equipment.
This was enough to give a top speed of about 170 mph and acceleration from 0-60 mph in 5.2 secs. Quick by todays standards, but astonishing back then! The power increase meant that aerodynamic improvements had to be made. This included a spoiler on the tail, a deep spoiler under the nose and blanked off radiator (on most but not all), and blanked off bonnet air scoop. Nothing can quite match the heady combination of hand-crafted luxury and raw power that is seen in these Aston Martin supercars of the 1980s.
This particular car has been upgraded to Vantage specification and also features Ronal alloy wheels to stunning effect. The paintwork, in classic Suffolk red, is very good, as is the original red piped Magnolia interior complemented by matching Wilton carpets. Complete with extensive history file, this stunning looking car is definitely worthy of serious consideration.
