V8 LWB 5.3 2dr Volante Automatic Petrol

Fisher Performance Cars are delighted to offer this rare Aston Martin V8 Volante LWB. One of only 63 examples hand built at Newport Pagnell. This vehicle was used as Aston Martinโ€™s demonstrator with the registration number AMV8. On the 22nd May 1998 the car was loaned to the Prince of Wales for an Polo event according to the carโ€™s travel book. Only three owners including Aston Martin Newport Pagnell.
The Aston Martin V8 Volante (LWB) was built between 1997-2000. Weighing 2050kg, the car is still capable of 150mph with 0-60mph in 6.5 seconds. The engine is the same as used in the V8 Coupe producing 349bhp.
This elegant convertible has an additional 200mm of rear passenger leg room over the Virage Volante. The interior is a symphony of Connolly leather, walnut veneer, wall to wall Wilton and cold chrome details. The long chassis is the last Aston ever to feature masses of polished walnut veneer. The shape of the instrument panel became more rounded over the centre console with the incidental dials arraigned in a 2 + 2 fashion. Two DIN slots were provided for a tape player linked to a CD multi-changer hidden in the dashboard and an optional sat-nav system with flip out screen.
Fisher Performance will carry out a full service and MOT before delivery.
