Aston Martin – V8 Vantage Volante

.

Vehicle Overview

The V8 Zagato model Aston Martin was a grand tourer of the 1980s. Just fifty two examples of the coupe and thirty seven of the convertible were built between 1986 and 1990. The coupe was first unveiled at the 1986 Geneva Motor Show, and orders were quickly taken, despite only showing the drawing of the car.

The decision to build the later convertible was controversial – all 52 coupes had already been purchased at the height of the supercar speculation market, and the convertibles were to remain more desirable than their predecessors. The V8 Zagato, as the name suggests, was based on the Aston Martin V8, but with a body by the famed Zagato coachbuilder.

The design was an angular modern interpretation of the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato of the 1960s. The squared off grille was especially controversial. The Zagato was powered by a 430 hp (321 kW) V8 engine with twin choke Weber carburettors. The all alloy car could hit 300 km/h (186 mph).
