Announced on February 1977 the Aston Martin V8 Vantage took the motoring world by storm. It was the first time that the company had used the ‘Vantage’ name since the six-cylinder DBS. In early 1986, the final series of the V8 Vantage motor cars were fitted with the same 580X engine as previewed in the V8 Vantage Zagato and the X-pack was born, boasting an incredible 432 bhp. This brutish yet elegant coupé was once the fastest accelerating production car in the world.
“It’s performance is simply stupendous and relentless… this Aston simply lays a trail of rubber as the big clutch bites positively, and then takes off like a scalded tiger… I had the needle as far as 150mph and even then there was no sign of the acceleration tailing off…” – Clive Richardson writing in Motor Sport magazine
The Aston Martin V8 Vantage X-Pack for sale at DD Classics is the last LHD Vantage X-Pack ever built. The car was tastefully specified as follows: Balmoral Green with fabulous Fawn hide piped with Green piping for the upholstery. Matching Green hide is used in the dash top roll, steering wheel and cowl, with green Wilton carpets edged in the same dark Green leather and Beige headlining. The Vantage also benefits from beautiful Burr Walnut trim.
Our car has only travelled 33,000 miles from new and is in fabulous condition throughout. The X Pack V8 engine coupled to a 5-speed ZF manual gearbox produces one of the most phenomenal driving experiences you could wish for.
This unique and handsome example of Aston Martin’s timeless yet formidable V8 Vantage is without doubt one of the very best available and just the car that many enthusiasts have been waiting to add to their collection.
Within the history file are numerous invoices detailing works carried out on the X-Pack.
