Back in the 1990's following on from the Virage, Aston Martin developed the all new Vantage.
Although there were similarities to the previous, Virage model the Vantage was an all new design, with new and improved chassis, suspension and body, the only real carry over was the time proven 5.3 litre engine
Using a modified and twin supercharged version of the Virage four valve per cylinder, V8 5.3 litre engine, the Vantage was well received.
Following on within Vantage production a limited number (101) of the less aggressive V8 coupe were produced. Same Vantage body and suspension, front & rear lighting etc but with automatic gearbox, deleted superchargers and more modest wheel arches.
Finally, as was customary with Aston Martin, a few (63) Volante versions of the V8 coupe were produced. But in order to make the Volante a good four seater car for the first time (instead of a two plus two) the 'coupe' chassis was lengthened by 200mm at the rear footwell area.
At the same time the interior of the car was made even more luxurious than the Vantage or the Coupe with remodeled seats and consoles etc
These were to become known as the V8 Volante 'Long wheelbase'
Today we have chassis number five of the LWB model for available.
Finished in Peacock Blue with Magnolia piped blue trim and Blue mohair hood, 9005 has had jut three previous owners and sparingly used at just 32000 miles.
As with all LWB, the car has the time proven 'torqueflite' four speed with lock up, automatic transmission with both sport and touring modes..
With an already no expense spared large detailed service history including many old MOT certificates, the car is supplied fully serviced and MOT tested ready for the new owner to enjoy 2021 in style!
