1986 Aston Martin V8 Volante EFi   £145,000

 

 

 This Aston Martin V8 Volante Series 2 left the factory in September 1986 originally in Silver with grey leather, burgundy piping and hood. The factory options included adjustable steering column and a rare tonneau cover! It had been specially ordered by Aston Martin dealer Victor Wilson in Edinburgh for a private customer and was registered in November that year. During the initial ownership the car was serviced by Murray Motor Co. Edinburgh and by Aston Martin Works, Newport Pagnell, in June 89 at just 9,000 miles. In April 1990 the car was purchased by Classic Car dealer Michael Hinde in Knutsford who registered it in his name for a few weeks only before passing it on to its second owner in Cogenhoe Northamptonshire. For the next 3 years it came under the watchful eye of Desmond J Smail before this second owner parted with it in 1993, aided by Desmond to find its third and last owner in Richmond Surrey. Initially registered as his company car and then in 1998 as his own personal car. It was comprehensively looked after during his ownership by more local Aston experts, Ian Mason, HWM and Trinity Engineering and eventually back with us, courtesy of our recently established branch - Aston Service London. Although having good paintwork at the time, the car underwent a bare metal re-spray in 1995 to match the roof colour and upholstery piping, Aston Martin Cheviot Red was chosen. This is a genuine 3 private owner car with only 48,000 miles and comes with a very comprehensive history and original factory service book. The car has had the benefit of detailed and no expense spared maintenance which is well documented, is in excellent condition and drives superbly.
