The Aston Martin Vantage was introduced at the 1992 British International Motor Show and such was the transformation of the Vantage that it only bore a passing resemblance to the Virage. The new car’s styling was comprehensively updated to create a far more aggressive appearance, every panel, with the exception of door skins and roof, being different to that of the Virage. Revised cylinder heads, camshafts and pistons were also added along with twin Eaton Superchargers giving the new car an impressive 550bhp. Significant improvements to chassis and braking systems, larger wheels and tyres and a completely new interior with Connolly hides and burr walnut fascias rounded of the new car.
With the demise of the Virage in 1995 and for those customers who liked the look of the new Vantage but didn’t want the brutal power of the twin supercharged V550, Aston Martin began to offer the ‘V8 Coupe’ which was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1996. The V8 Coupe shared the same chassis and body as the Vantage V550, with minor revisions to wheel arches and grille, and had basically the same interior. It also shared the same enhanced 5.3 litre V8 in fuel injected form but without the twin superchargers, mated to a 4-speed Chrysler TorqueFlite automatic gearbox. A more relaxed uncomplicated car but still an Aston Martin with 350 bhp and a 0-60 time of 5.9 seconds!
Production of the V8 Coupe ran until 1999 by which time only 101 examples had been built, one of the last truly hand built Astons before the factory geared up for Vanquish production.

This car number 48 of just 101 was registered in September 1999 to Aston Martin themselves before being sold a few months later to its one and only keeper and has returned for servicing on every single occasion to the factory where it was built for a full Works Service history and has now covered just 28,000 miles! As you would expect this V8 Coupe is in superb condition both cosmetically and mechanically.
