The car shown here, one of 58 U.S.-specification V8 Vantage Volantes built, was originally delivered, as it presents today, finished in Cannock Black with a Black interior and black soft top, to Bruce P. McNall, via Los Angeles dealer Gregg Motors. Its matching-numbers original engine has been upgraded to a 6.3-litre “big bore” V-8 by English marque specialists Oselli, and it has what the owner describes as “massive unfussy performance,” with 485 horsepower – more powerful and torquey than even the 6.3-litre Zagato models which offered top-of-the-range performance. Also equipped from new with the ZF five-speed transmission and other desirable final-year modifications, including cruise control, and the much appreciated European-specification bumpers, it is accompanied by books, tools, and ownership history, and it remains remarkable in every regard, with about 31,000 actual miles.
Perhaps the finest V8 Vantage Volante available on American shores today, this car boasts a wonderful history and excellent condition, as well as its drivetrain updated to the powerful yet mannered 6.3-litre specification for even more performance than the standard factory V8 Vantage in European trim. It would be a worthy addition to any Aston Martin fleet and thrilling to drive along winding corniches or mountain roadways
