Aston Martin V8 Volante 1 (1978)

In 1978 Aston Martin finally unveiled its V8 Volante model. Based on the AMV8 Saloon, the Volante had the same basic body shell (which had been strengthened) but with a power operated hood instead of the Saloons roof. Rear wings and boot lid were also different to suit the new roof design.

Power came from the same 5340cc engine as the Saloon with either 5 speed manual or automatic transmission. Wood Veneer trim made its Aston Martin debut on the V8 Volante, indicating its role as a sportier alternative to the Rolls-Royce/Bentley Corniche.
