Series III X-Pack Manual: One of only 84 Right Hand Drive Cars Built

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was hailed as “Britain’s First Supercar” for its 170 mph (270
km/h) top speed when introduced. Its engine was shared with the Lagonda, but it used high-
performance camshafts, increased compression ratio, larger inlet valves and bigger carburettors
mounted on new manifolds for increased output. Straight-line performance was the best of the
day, with acceleration from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 5.3 seconds, one-tenth of a second quicker
than the Ferrari Daytona, its main competitor of the time.

One of the most noticeable features was the closed-off hood bulge rather than the open scoop
found on the normal V8. The grille area was also closed off, with twin driving lights inserted
and a spoiler added to the boot lid. The 580X Pack Vantage was more of a mechanical update
which included: 16-inch (406-mm) wheels, and the more powerful V8 from the limited-edition
V8 Zagato.

Our car is presented in Royal Blue Metallic with Magnolia Hide interior piped dark blue and
contrasting dark blue carpets. A fully and complete comprehensive service history from new
