1993 Aston Martin V8 Zagato Vantage Volante
One of Only Seven Cars Produced
Chassis Number: SCFCV81Z0KTR30042. Engine Number: V/585/0042.
Zagato had created the first production two-seater since the DB4GT. The 5.3-litre four-cam V8 was, naturally, to Vantage specification, producing a mind-bending 432bhp at 6,200rpm. The manner of its installation though, created a certain amount of controversy at Newport Pagnell as the existing Zagato design featured a low sloping bonnet, penned in the expectation of a fuel-injected engine, but to produce a "Vantage specification" a revised bonnet design had to take place to clear the Vantage's quartet of Webers.
# 30042 is one of only seven Zagato Vantage Volantes originally constructed by the factory with the X pack Vantage engine specification. The car was sold new on 1st August 1993 to the first registered keeper, Mr Michael A Johnson of Dundee. Stamps in the accompanying service book record visits to the Murray Motor Company in January 1995 (at 2,841 miles), Donaldson & Evans in June 1996 (at 3,425 miles) and Works Service in August '96 (at 3,745 miles) when the speedometer was replaced. In July 1996 the car was acquired by the previous owner. Subsequent Works Service bills on file include one for converting the engine to unleaded compatibility, and we are advised that other Works Service modifications also include;
In addition, the car is fitted with the preferred styled Momo steering wheel, wind deflector and supplied with an additional set of wheels/tyres (Sniper alloy wheels shod with Pirelli P Zero tyres). In June2006 # 30042 was serviced at 10,501 miles and for the past four years has been in storage. A further service was carried out on 7th, May 2011. Part of our post sales preparation the car would be serviced with issue of new MOT carried out by official factory Heritage Dealer.
