1988 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante (580X)

Completed by the works on 8th January 1988, this striking Vantage Volante was finished in Suffolk Red coachwork with Magnolia hides piped Burgundy and a Fawn convertible roof
One of just 167 ‘X Pack’ Vantage Volante’s built, our car was optioned with automatic transmission and supplied by HWM on 15th January 1988
Acquired by the second owner Globe Trust Ltd, Exchange Square, London in April 1991 and retained by the company for one year before it was sold to Mr Kenneth Edwards in April 1992
Mr Edwards had the Volante maintained by Aston Martin Works until 1997 with mileage at 21,965 miles (records held on file) after which time he commissioned the services of marque specialists Pugsley and Lewis to maintain the Aston on an annual basis
The Volante was used regularly by Mr Edwards and maintained correctly with a new gearbox fitted in 2008 (mileage at 54,525) with a torque converter and shift kit upgrade
Featured within a limited edition print set by Aston Martin in the early 2000s (see gallery) displaying its previous registration ‘ORD 123’
Supplied by us to the vendor in 2011 with the mileage reading 57,000, the Volante has been used and enjoyed as it was intended over the past decade by the vendor and his family
Cherished and enjoyed on many European road trips, this Volante has more recently benefitted from a cosmetic restoration by AM Works Service (2018-19) where it was fully repainted and had a replacement mohair hood and Wilton carpet set
Offered for sale with a fresh service by Pugsley and Lewis, this rare and desirable Vantage Volante has now covered 64,500 miles and is supplied with a comprehensive history file, copy of original build sheet, multiple MoT certificates and supporting service invoices from AMWS and Pugsley and Lewis
