The Aston Martin V8 Coupé was introduced in 1996 as a development of the original Virage model. Powered by a revised version of the 32 valve 5.3 litre V8 engine, the V8 coupé was a much improved car due to the investment of the Ford Motor Company resources. The styling cues followed that of the Vantage but without bonnet vents and wide wheels. The distinguished look included a new mesh radiator grille and air intakes in the front spoiler, giving a purposeful aerodynamic stance. This model formed part of the Aston Martin range for just three years and is one of the rarer members of the modern V8 family.
This fabulous one owner, hand built Aston Martin was supplied by official factory franchise holder, Paramount Derby on 29th January 1999. This outstanding example is everything you would expect from a quintessentially British motor car. The car is finished in Orkney Grey with Parchment leather seats piped in maroon and maroon carpets. This imposing Aston Martin has a mileage of 14,200 and an impressive service history boasting 13 stamps. Presented to auction with a V5C registration document, a valid MoT test certificate, the original purchase invoice and all service invoices, this Aston Martin represents a fantastic example of a rare modern classic.
