We are delighted to market this rare V8 Vantage built in July 1981. Finished in Imperial Burgundy over Magnolia Leather.
This car was originally built to Middle East specification and of course, left hand drive. Rumour has it that the Sheikh who took delivery was not satisfied with the cars handling across the desert at 160 MPH! and Aston Martin bought the car back to the UK.
In 1984 the Vantage was purchased by a Mr Rowan Atkinson Esq. and converted to right hand drive at the factory. This Vantage has remained in the UK ever since and has been owned by notable enthusiasts and racers, as a result the engine, handling and brakes are surprisingly good. She has undergone all the usual restoration work to the body and of course sills, the interior has also been refreshed.
There are two files full of information and history regarding this original Vantage spec car.
We look forward to hearing from you.
