MODEL HISTORY

Initially produced in Coupe format and then later developed into its sister format, the Volante, the Aston Martin V8 Coupe was a clear development in both its styling and design from its predecessor, the Virage. Representing one of the final cars before the launch of the DB7, the V8 Coupe remains an enduring and collectable member of the Aston Martin heritage line-up.

Launched at the 1996 Geneva Motor Show, styling followed that of the Vantage but without the bonnet vents and with narrower wheels; the overall look was one of elegance rather than brute power. The V8 Coupe sported new six spoke alloy wheels, a mesh radiator grille and air intakes and auxiliary lamps in the front spoiler presenting a distinguished but purposeful aerodynamic stance.

This new V8 model featured a re-designed engine, revised bodywork, wheels, brakes, suspension and interior. The engine received a 32 valve cylinder head, new ignition system and various other upgrades to produce 349 BHP combined with a 4 speed automatic transmission.  Performance 0-60 in 6.7 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.
