Chassis number '15454' was completed in February 1986 and sold new to Mr Elie Aboutaka of London NW6. Its original registration was '25 ELE'. The car was subsequently owned by one P Hopkins Esq of Hayward Heath, Sussex, and was registered as 'C581 JTM' in 1988.

Forming part of a significant private collection for the past two years and sharing the garage with other notable Aston Martins, the V8 Volante is offered for sale as part of a reorganisation and refocus of the collection.

Finished in Balmoral green with matching green hood and cover and contrasting beige Hide interior. Maintained by marque experts Ian Mason and RS Williams from 1994 until 2013 and most recently comprehensively serviced by Vantage engineering in 2019 at a cost of £6085. At this point the fastidious current owner requested fitment of 5 of the correct Avon Turbosteel 235/70 R15 Tyres. An impressive example of an imposing car which will grace any collection.

'It's not by any means the world's most expensive drophead in production (the Corniche costs an extra £23,000) nor is it quite the quickest, though a Porsche Cabrio would have to be very well driven to get away from it, but the Aston Martin Volante is perhaps the greatest. It is a true sports car which is also luxuriously comfortable.' - Fast Lane.

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.
