After spearheading the Aston Martin V8's transformation for the 1990s, the Virage name was dropped during 1994, its place as the 'standard' model being taken by a Vantage-style V8 Coupé. Introduced at the Geneva Salon in March 1996, the new V8 Coupé adopted all of the Vantage's muscular styling cues but retained the normally aspirated 5.3 litre engine of the Virage and delivered similar performance.
The 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 wonderful example of Aston Martins V8 Coupé has covered just 16,930miles. The history file contains many invoices including servicing carried out by Aston Martin Works Service and various other specialists making for very comforting reading. This devourer of continents has been occasionally used over the last few years as the MoT records confirm, and it has been treated to the appropriate maintenance throughout this time ensuring everything is in good working order.
Presented in Metallic Green with a contrasting cream interior piped with green the V8 sits proudly on four alloy wheels which have recently been refurbished. Offered in fabulous condition throughout this is a magnificent example not to be missed.
Interested parties should note that contrary to the catalogue description this example has had a speedo change and we believe the mileage to be circa 40,000 from new.
