The V8 Volante
When the DB6 Volante ended production n 1970, Aston Martin had been left without a convertible in the model range despite huge demand. The V8 Volante, introduced in 1978, remedied this with the wildly popular new Aston. American orders were so high that RHD models didn't exist for many months. Featuring the 5.3L Aston Martin V8, the V8 Volante married contemporary looks with world-leading performance producing a car that is still desirable to this day, often commanding 100% premiums over the coupe V8s.
