This is an exceptional, rare and significant car that comes with great provenance. Our Aston Martin Virage Volante factory Wide body was first owned and first registered by Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd with their very own factory display plate ‘AM V8’. Aston Martin Works confirm in writing this car was first owned Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd presumably for marketing and display purposes given internal invoices on file for valeting is charged out to the Marketing Department. We know the registration mark ‘AM V8’ was used at the time for factory ‘showcase’ demonstrators at various European Motor Shows and this car was used to showcase the new factory Widebody specification that was available for a further cost of in the region of £60,000. Owners of these cars could return their cars to the factory for this very special upgrade but naturally it is the genuine factory original Widebody cars that are the more desirable and valuable. Only 26 factory built Widebody cars were ever produced and further provenance with this car is in the fact that it is the first vehicle built with the improved specification and this is shown in the parts manual where this car, chassis number 60193 is referred to at the top of some pages as the start point of where specification changed.
Not only does this car hold exceptional provenance, it has only covered a genuine 24,000 miles from new and comes with its original handbooks and service book, spare keys, letter from Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd confirming warranty repairs and mileages in the cars early life, the majority of main dealer receipts and invoices and even a compliment slip to the last owner from the Factory Master Technician who conducted the original PDI. The certificate of ownership confirms the car was registered new ‘AM V8', owned by Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd, Newport Pagnell and on the 12th January 1995 the car was PDI inspected by G.Higgs. The first service was conducted on the 20th February 1995 by Aston Martin Works at Newport Pagnell where it has been maintained for most of its life. The service book has been stamped at Newport Pagnell at 4730, 5495, 6567, 7211, 8389, 10598, 12908, 13991, 14624 and at 15293 miles Aston Martin HWM Walton on Thames serviced the car. The Aston Martin was back with the Works at Newport Pagnell at 18022, 18877, 19797 and 20690 miles meaning the car had fifteen Aston Martin main dealer services in the first 20,000 or so miles, fourteen of those being with Aston Martin Works.
More recently, in 2017 at 22912 miles the Aston Martin had over £10,000 spent with prominent Aston Martin classic specialists in the South of England. This included a rebuilt engine ECU, re-conditioned alternator, new assembly cooling fans and various re-commissioning. The most recent service was carried out at 23458 miles and the car has arrived with us in exceptional condition. This Aston Martin Virage Volante is finished in its correct colour of British Racing Green and the body and paintwork are presented in beautiful condition. The original Green piped Parchment leather is stunning as expected with such a low mileage and it's no surprise the car has won some recent show events with its last owner. The Black mohair hood is in excellent order and this fantastic, unique factory car has enormous presence and with its detailed engine bay and remarkably clean underbody there is no doubt this is a car for the discerning buyer/collector. Our Virage Volante 6.3 Cosmetic is truly outstanding in every respect and on the road the car is sensational with impressive performance, acceleration, handling with real quality, luxury and comfort. This is a very special car to own and is somewhat unrepeatable.
