This genuine 1987 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante X-Pack was first delivered on 25th September 1987 to The Burton Group Plc (now Arcadia Group), Oxford Street, London. Finished in its original colour combination of Cumberland Grey with Mushroom leather interior, this factory equipped X-Pack boasts a mighty 432bhp and a four-speed automatic gearbox.In August 2008 E648ERC was subject to an extensive bare metal restoration by a respected Aston Martin specialist. With all works documented and photographed in the history file, the car has covered a mere 2,300 miles since and remains in exemplary condition. As one can see from these recent studio photographs, the bodywork is simply superb, with flawless shut lines and stunning paintwork. The engine bay has been fully detailed and the interior is blemish free. To compliment the history file, this vehicle has a fully stamped original Aston Martin service booklet with a total of 20 stamps. Not only do they verify the mileage of 72,500 miles from new, but they also show that this Aston Martin has been treated to a no expense spared maintenance schedule from Aston Martin Works Service, Ian Mason and Rikki Cann. Prior to the auction, Heritage Aston Martin specialist Desmond Smail will fully service the vehicle, ready for its next owner. Offered from an extensive private collection and stored in a temperature controlled environment, this Vantage Volante represents a superb investment opportunity. With only 84 examples ever made, there are few cars in the classic car market that both define their era and offer such exclusivity.
