Aston Martin V8 commemorative collection for sale

Bonhams, the auction house, is to sell a single-owner collection of nine commemorative hand-built Aston Martin V8 models.

The collection – privately commissioned in 1987 to celebrate the 21st anniversary of V8 production in 1990 – will be sold on June 4 at Aston Martin's works service facility in Newport Pagnell.

The nine V8 models are all consecutively registered and finished in identical Hunter Green coachwork with tan leather upholstery, burr walnut veneer and dark green carpeting.

Each car carries a card in the glove box recording every occasion it has been used.

Last year, all nine models were featured at Aston Martin's new factory at Gaydon in Warwickshire during a visit by HRH The Prince of Wales.

For the past 10 years the collection has been housed in a purpose-built, climate-controlled environment by the current owner and every model is offered effectively 'as new'.

The collection includes:

  • Aston Martin V8 Coupe
  • Aston Martin V8 Volante
  • Aston Martin V8 Vantage Coupe
  • Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante
  • Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante Prince of Wales Specification (POW)
  • Aston Martin Lagonda
  • Aston Martin Vantage Zagato
  • Aston Martin Vantage Zagato Volante
  • Aston Martin Virage Coupe

    Although the vendor has expressed a preference to sell the collection in its entirety as one lot, the vehicles will be offered – subject to an acceptable private treaty offer – individually as consecutive lots at the auction.
