1984 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Coupé

V580 Manual Coupe: One of only 94 models produced

Jubilee Silver metallic with Burgundy Hide

Hexagon Classics are pleased to offer this wonderful Aston Martin Vantage, which we present as a special car, even by our standards.

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was hailed as “Britain’s First Supercar” for its 170 mph (270 km/h) top speed when introduced. Its engine was shared with the Lagonda, but it used high-performance camshafts, increased compression ratio, larger inlet valves and bigger carburettors mounted on new manifolds for increased output. Straight-line performance was the best of the day. When Motor Magazine tested the V8 Vantage V580 it produced incredible 0 to 60mph time of 5.2 seconds was recorded, which was quicker than the Ferrari Daytona, its main competitor of the time!

One of the most noticeable features was the closed-off hood bulge rather than the open scoop found on the normal V8. The grille area was also closed off, with twin driving lights inserted and a spoiler added to the boot lid. The 580 Vantage was more of a mechanical update which included: 16-inch (406-mm) wheels, and the more powerful V8 from the limited-edition V8 Zagato.

Our car was commissioned in 1984 by A.F Gaskin & Co. to be built in it the same colour scheme as it is presented today. Accompanying the car is a comprehensive chassis file including:

  • Manufacturers build sheets
  • Original and complete handbook pack
  • MOT’s dating back to 1987
  • Complete service history from new
  • The mileage of 50,400 mile is corroborated by the documentation in chassis file.

Chassis # 12407 is presented in superb order throughout, and will be sold with the benefit of a freshly completed service & has received a new clutch recently by an Official Aston Martin Heritage Service Agent. Our magnificent and highly documented Vantage coupé is available for immediate inspection at our London showrooms. Without doubt a rare opportunity to acquire a highly desirable low mileage full documented car that is now highly collectable.

Available to view at our London showrooms.
