The V8 Vantage X Pack was Aston Martin's answer to the Supercars coming out of Italy in the 1980's but the car has retained its allure in today's market for its purposeful delivery of performance, its rarity and its enduring visual appeal.
To emphasise that delivery of power, contemporary reports stated - This is a car that weighs close to 4,000 lbs, yet has a 0-60 time of around 5 seconds and all of this is achieved without the aid of turbo or super charging. This means that the power flow is consistent and flexible. It can be driven at 40 m.p.h. in fifth gear with the engine just ticking over and then take you, in the same gear to the claimed top speed of about 170 m.p.h. – where it is legal to do so.
This wonderful example demonstrates all of the characteristics described - one of just 7 versions delivered in Salisbury Blue, #35 of just 131 X packs built, just three owners from new and with a faultless service history, this is a car that can still deliver exemplary performance.
