1986 Aston Martin V8 Volante EFI Automatic LHD . Finished in Cannock / Masons Black with Natural Hide interior and beige carpets with a Black Mohair hood .This example was built new in late December 1986 for a very special customer and on completion on the 19th December it was then airfreighted to the U.S.A to Aston Martin Lagonda , Beverley Hills in California
During the festive season one of the staples the world over is to watch one of the older Bond Movies on TV . At that time in 1986 the new Bond film was titled The Living Daylights featuring Timothy Dalton as Agent 007 and for the first time in 15 years an Aston Martin was to be his mode of transport in that film and in fact 2 Aston V8 Coupes were used.
The car on offer here, the Aston V8 Volante, was delivered new just after Christmas by Aston Martin in Beverly Hills to Mr. Albert R. (Cubby) Broccoli the producer of all the James Bond films and one of the most successful film producers in Hollywood.
He kept the car up until his death in 1996 and it was retained by his family for a number of years .
The car was on display at the opening of the Galpin Aston Martin Showroom in April 2005 which was attended by the California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and a host of celebrities, plus it was on display at an Aston Martin club function in Beverley Hills with pictures of the event prior to being acquired by another well known film producer.
The car was acquired by us in 2016 and shipped to the UK and registered here to ourselves before being sold to a significant UK Aston collector .
We have now acquired the car for a second time as he has decided to slim down his extensive collection.
The car has covered only 18,000 miles and is in superb condition in all respects and comes with the original build sheets, handbook and sales invoice plus other correspondence and is currently UK registered and tax paid in the UK.
This is an opportunity to acquire not only a very collectable and low mileage example of an Aston V8 Volante , but one with a fascinating provenance.
