1987 Aston Martin V8 Series 5 to ‘Vantage’
Location: United Kingdom
Here we have a very unique V8 rebuilt at no expense spared in developing the car into a 450 + BHP (with 520 ft lb or torque), super Vantage fuel injection car. Finished in Cumberland Grey, ‘Black Connolly’ Autolux trim, with contrasting grey carpets, (James Bond Living Daylights Spec). The body work and trim have been revised to full 1990 Vantage spec, including wheel arches, wheels and tyres, handling kit, suspension and up rated braking system, all to ‘Prince of Wales’ styling.
The engine is rebuilt to 7 litre Vantage spec by RSW, again with revised camshafts, totally revised fuel, injection system with larger throttle bodies and ECU’s etc. All of this coupled with a ZF five speed manual gearbox. Power graphs taken have indicated 455 BHP and over 520 ft lb of torque.
The car has covered just 7000 miles since all of this work has been carried out. This stunningly unique car is affectionately known as ‘The Beast’
James Bond would be impressed.
