1976 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Prototype Coupe
Location: United Kingdom
This particular V8 was Aston Martin’s project development car and was used to develop certain features of the 1977 model. The car was then used by Aston Martin as a demonstrator at the prestigious Sloane Street Showrooms in London and loaned to the Duke of Westminster in 1977 whilst he was awaiting the delivery of his Lagonda.
Features include upgraded suspension plus Vantage front spoiler, driving lights, radiator grill and a full Vantage exhaust system in stainless steel. The front suspension was also upgraded to the Vantage system for better road holding.

Full bare metal re-spray.
Chassis checked and fully re-furbished.
