    Décrite par l'ancien pdg d'Aston Martin Victor Gauntlett comme « un élégant pur-sang, magnifiquement construit, rapide et immensément sûr », la V8 fut produite en différentes variantes dont l'une est la très exclusive Volante décapotable. Introduite en réponse aux demandes de la clientèle pour ce genre de voiture, la Volante apparut en juin 1978. Sans doute au sommet du luxe parmi les cabriolets, la nouvelle V8 bénéficiait d'une capote doublée à commande électrique qui, une fois refermée, conférait à un intérieur orné de ronce de noyer, tout le confort et le raffinement dont on créditait la version conduite intérieure. Bien que l'aérodynamique d'une voiture découverte eût quelque peu rogné la vitesse de pointe, les 240 km/h de la Volante la classaient parmi les cabriolets les plus rapides du monde. Les numéros de châssis des V8 Volante et Vantage Volante vont de 15001 à 15849, soit un total de 849 voitures.

    Peinte à l'origine en Cumberland Grey avec intérieur fauve à passepoil gris, cette V8 Volante à boîte manuelle fut vendue neuve en Suisse via Emil Frey AG. Un régulateur de vitesse, des moquettes en laine beige, un récepteur radio-cassette Blaupunkt Bamberg et un rebord de cendrier fini en noir à la peinture en poudre sont mentionnés comme options spéciales sur la fiche de fabrication qui l'accompagne. Le vendeur acheta la Volante chez le spécialiste Aston Martin suisse Roos en novembre 2008, le certificat de vente indiquant le Windsor Red comme teinte extérieure. Les autres documents comprennent un certificat de contrôle antipollution suisse, une carte verte d'assurance et une copie de la carte grise suisse. Exposée pendant quelques années, la voiture demandera une révision avant sa remise en circulation.

    On notera également que si le véhicule demeure en France, le taux de TVA sur importation réduit à 5,5 pour cent sera appliqué sur le prix d'adjudication. Notez également qu'en cas d'acquisition par une société de la Communauté européenne, le montant de la TVA sera calculé sur la base du taux applicable dans le pays concerné. Les droits à l'importation dans d'autres pays européens peuvent varier et des frais administratifs seront facturés en vue de préparer les opérations de dédouanement. Pour toute question concernant le dédouanement, nous vous prions de consulter Le Département automobile de Bonhams ou nos transporteurs agréés.

    Engine no. V/585/5540/S


    Described by former Aston Martin Chairman Victor Gauntlett as, "a stylish thoroughbred, beautifully built, luxurious, fast and immensely safe," the V8 was built in several variants, one of the more exclusive being the Volante convertible. Introduced in response to customers' demands for such a car, the Volante first appeared in June 1978. Arguably the ultimate in soft-top luxury, the newcomer boasted a lined, power-operated hood which, when erected, endowed the walnut embellished interior with all the solidity and refinement associated with the saloon version. Although its open-car aerodynamics meant that top speed suffered with the hood down, the Volante's 150mph maximum nevertheless ranked it among the world's fastest convertibles. V8 Volante and Vantage Volante chassis numbers ran from '15001' to '15849', a total of 849 cars.

    Originally finished in Cumberland Grey with grey-piped fawn trim, this manual transmission V8 Volante was delivered new to Switzerland via Emil Frey AG. Cruise control; beige lambs' wool floor rugs; a Blaupunkt Bamberg radio/cassette; and a powder blacked ashtray edge are listed as special items on the accompanying copy build sheet. The vendor purchased the Volante from Swiss Aston Martin specialists Roos in November 2008, the purchase receipt recording the exterior colour as Windsor Red. Additional paperwork includes a Swiss pollution document; a green card insurance document; and a copy of the Swiss Carte Grise. The car has been on static display for a number of years and may require recommissioning prior to road use.

    Please note that if this vehicle remains within France the reduced rate of Import VAT at 5.5% will be charged on the hammer price. Please note that if you purchase as an EU Company, the VAT amount will be calculated based on your registered country's rate. Import rates to other EU Countries may vary and an administration fee will be charged to prepare the necessary customs clearances. If you have any questions regarding customs clearance, please contact the Bonhams Motorcar Department or our recommended shippers.
