This is an accurate scale model by Cult Scale of the 1978 Aston Martin V8 Right Hand Drive, in metallic blue
Its prestigious pedigree is worth to the Aston Martin V8's today high prices. Presented in 1972, the convertible version of the V8 was introduced in June 1978. This was a few months before the ‘Oscar India’ spec. coupés were launched, yet it still featured the new Series 4 bonnet. The Volante weighed in at about 70 kg more than the coupé, because of the extra bracing required to strengthen the chassis. In America, the car received much larger bumpers, which added weight and somewhat marred its alluring lines.
By 1981, the Volante had proved so successful that the coupé was only built to satisfy individual demand.
The V8 was a balanced engine with remarkable performance, arriving in the most powerful versions at 340 horsepower. The V8 was produced until 1989.
