This is a picture of a 1988 Vantage Volante

In normal Aston Martin tradition the AMV8 family grew to include a Vantage (higher performance version) and from 1986 a Vantage Volante (convertible) version was also added to the range.

The Vantage had a 438bhp version of the standard 5340cc V8 engine, this was enough to propel the car to a top speed of 170mph. Recognizable by its spoilers and blanked-out radiator grille the car had various wheel and styling changes throughout its life. If the standard performance was not enough, the factories Service Department also converted some cars to a 6.3 litre specification!.

The V8 Vantage Volante had the same mechanics as the saloon but with the V8 Volantes convertible coachwork. Most cars had dramatic looking flared wheel arches and side skirts. HRH Prince Charles ordered a car with out the flared arches and side skirts, which led to a handful of replicas known as "The Prince of Wales" specification.
