Aston Martin V8 Coupe: The Epitome of Elegance and Performance
The Aston Martin V8 Coupe is a pinnacle of luxury and performance, embodying the elegance of the V8 Vantage 550 supercharged model with subtle styling and chassis improvements. A rare gem from the coach-built era, only 101 units graced the roads from the Newport Pagnell production line.
This Grand Tourer boasts a luxuriously appointed interior, generous 2+2 seating, and well-balanced body styling, all contributing to its renowned grand touring experience. The V8 Coupe and its convertible sibling, the Long Wheelbase Volante, represent the final echelons of classic Aston Martin design before the modern era ushered in by the DB7.
Introduced in 1996, the V8 Coupe was a refined iteration of the original Virage, powered by a revised 5.3 litre V8 engine, benefiting from the investment of Ford Motor Company. It presents a distinguished appearance with new six-spoke alloy wheels, a mesh radiator grille, and purposeful aerodynamic features, prioritising elegance over brute power. A year later, the Long Wheelbase Volante made its debut, offering an extra 200mm legroom and identifiable by an air vent style indent in front of the rear wheels.
Performance-wise, the V8 Coupe is equipped with a 5340 cc engine delivering 350 bhp at 6000 rpm and 369 lbs-ft of torque at 4300 rpm. The suspension comprises co-axial spring damper units with anti-roll bars at the front and rear. It features a 4-speed automatic transmission with options for sport and touring modes. The car's dimensions stand at 4745 x 1856 x 1330 mm, and it weighs 1950 kg, with both front and rear ventilated disc brakes ensuring robust stopping power.
