Description

This is one of only three examples delivered new to Belgium. This car has Chassis no. SCFDAM2CCXBL89055 Only 64 LWB Volantes were built, and this is one of 25 left-hand drive examples. This is the only practical four-seat Aston Martin soft-top of the post-WW2 era. It's a one owner car with just under 50,000 kilometres from new. It has a full service history.

This left-hand drive, automatic transmission LWB Volante was sold new in Belgium via the official Aston Martin importer, Michiels in Tisselt. The owner of this beautiful Aston had been in touch with Michiels, saying that should a proper four-seater cabriolet come on the market he would be interested in buying one, which is exactly what happened. Happy as ever, he ordered the car, which had a price tag of 9.6 million Belgian Francs, an absolute fortune. The Volante eventually cost him 8.4 million BEF, which was the equivalent of just over €200,000 at that time.

The car was ordered in the very tasteful colour combination of 'Pentland Green' over 'Magnolia/Forest' (beige) leather with green carpets and green hood. We have been advised that only three left-hand drive LWB Volantes were delivered new in Belgium, two of which were in this colour combination.

The owner purchased the car in his company's name and later on assumed ownership personally. The car was serviced regularly at Aston Martin Belgium and submitted for yearly “Contrôle Technique” inspections. In 2002, Aston Martin Belgium valued this car at €210,000, at which time it had covered 13,700 kilometres (letter on file).

The car has now a little under 50,000 kilometres and is presented in original and excellent condition throughout. The most recent major service was carried out in September 2017 at Aston Martin Michiels in Tisselt. This beautiful LWB Volante represents a unique opportunity for any Aston Martin collector to share the pleasure with his family. This full four seater offers a comfortable and fast cruising in unmatched style.

The car comes with its original books and tools; colour-matched Delvaux pouch; European Emergency service document (1999); the original sales agreement (November 1999) for the total price of 8,409,000 Belgian Francs; taxation report (2016); a new set of green carpets (unsused); a made-to-size car cover and an extra centrepiece grill in black that was delivered new with the car (unused). This is a rare modern Aston Martin on its way to collectible classic status.
