An Original 1988 MY Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante Factory Built Left-Hand-Drive. So rare as only 54 LHD were built by the Factory, but this one is unique, and could this be one of the FASTEST, MOST POWERFUL & BEST HANDLING ROAD ASTON IN THE WORLD?
Fabulous Hand shaped Aluminium Litchfield Black Body cloaking a completely Hand-built motor vehicle, by some of the greatest Craftsman in their field. Car is in a 10 out of 10 Condition Concours, virtually like a Brand New Car now.
Chassis No: SCFCV81C1HTL15553,
Original Engine No: V/585/5553/LFA*
(*None of the Factory LHD Vantage Volante Engines had the "X" suffice).
The Original car has an original Fully Documented and verified 35,000 miles, with just 1 Previous owner registered. The List price cost of this Model when brand new in 1986/7 was near £135,000, although intense demand from Collectors pushed them up, a short time afterwards to £1/4 M with the very first one made shown at the 1986 NEC Show with the Chassis No ending 15538.
This comes with a copy of the Original Factory DATA card and Factory Build Sheet, detailing all the Original detailed Specification of the car. Together with Original Bill of Sale from Lake Forest Sportscars to the First Owner, with his address.

The new and modern brand new lightweight all aluminium 6.2 L Engine has been Dyno-Tested well in excess of 650 BHP on barest minimum Supercharger Boost, by Owner to verify the massive incredible power it yields. 681 BHP and 617 lbft Torque, is achievable, conservatively speaking, on normal Boost and normal Octane Pump Petrol, although this engine has the potential, with a just a few mods and higher Octane Petrol of 825 BHP , at higher Supercharger Boost rating, although, it has never been tried, as current BHP is just quite simply phenomenal and enough.
