When it comes to speed and style, Aston Martin have been meshing the two seamlessly for years. Today we get a look at one of their many legendary designs, a 1978 Aston Martin V8 Vantage. This beautiful machine could be yours, as it is set to hit the auction block very soon. This 1978 Aston Martin V8 Vantage was originally headed to Canada, for a customer in British Columbia.
Since then it has moved around a bit before landing in the possession of Vantage collector Kean Rogers. The ride got an engine rebuild in 2005, now pushing a 6.0L instead of the stock 5.4L design. That equates to 500 hp and 500 ft-lbs of torque, all with European-spec parts and work by Aston Engineering. Have a look at this beautiful machine in the images below and look for it to hit the auction block August 18-19, 2017 at the Sotheby’s Monterey event.
