Description

This V8 Vantage Zagato was supplied on the 21st November 1986 to Mr G. Strok, Esq., Weybridge, by H.W.M Ltd, of Walton-on-Thames, Surrey. This rare grand-tourer was delivered in Lightning Silver coachwork with Burgundy Connolly leather trim and Black Alcantara Headlining One of just 50 coupe examples built during the model’s four-year production run, this British GT was extravagantly styled by the famed Italian coachbuilder ‘Carrozzeria Zagato’. This very car featured in a 4-page review in Motorsport Magazine in September 1987 (original copy on file), the author concluded ‘Sensational, yes, but also composed; brutish but obedient, razor sharp without being difficult to control’ Powered by a naturally aspirated 5.3-litre V8, delivering 430bhp to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission, our car rides on a brand new set of “new style” Ronal wheels shod with new Michelin tyres. This stunning example was later exported to Hong Kong in 1995 and repatriated to the UK in 2004, owned throughout that period by a noted Asian collector In 2017, nearly £10,000 was spent with Aston Martin specialist Nicholas Mee & Co on extensive servicing and improvements including the installation of a Harvey Bailey handling kit comprising a revised front anti-roll bar, front shock absorbers and new coil springs front and rear. A Bluetooth-compatible Alpine stereo was also fitted at this stage. In 2018, Aston Martin Works replaced the front brake discs and performed additional maintenance at a cost of over £2,000 The Zagato has just returned from marque specialists Quantum Works in December 2023 having been fully serviced and thoroughly gone through, now ready for immediate use by its future and lucky owner Accompanied by an extensive history file containing maintenance invoices, historic MOT test certificates and old Motor Vehicle Licences from the car’s time in Hong Kong, this car passed an advisory free MOT on 8th November 2023 and is offered for sale in superb condition. The appropriate cherished UK road registration ‘VZ 268’ is also included The Aston Martin V8 Vantage Zagato is in our opinion the ultimate iteration of the V8 range and a true drivers Aston Martin. We are proud to offer this fine example in collaboration with our friends ‘Autosport Designs Inc’ of New York, USA and our collaboration is a shared like-minded offering of this low original mileage, recently serviced V8 Vantage Zagato by Aston enthusiasts on either side of “The Pond”
