Chassis No. SCFCV81V8KTR15821 was first registered on 15th October 1989 and was the 6th from last UK RHD manual to leave the Newport Pagnell production line. As one of only 79 factory manual productions Vantage Volante X – Pack’s enjoying the final production upgrades, these rare production line cars enjoyed better cooling with a twin electronic fan pack and a heated glass rear window replacing the earlier plastic item. With a continuous documented history from new, 15821 was the subject of a light cosmetic restoration undertaken by renowned specialist, Desmond Smail some five years ago including a quality repaint in RR Balmoral Green and fresh trim in Light Tan, the original livery being Suffolk Red with Magnolia. D J Smail then supplied the car to a celebrated Italian collector where it was used sparingly as a weekend car from his Garda Villa. Some two years later, the owner offered the car for sale at which point, D B Motor Brokers accompanied by our trusted engineer visited the car and agreed terms for purchase with the benefit of a full road test and report confirming this was one of the very best examples we have considered. On completion and accompanied by our client, we personally transported the car back to the UK whereupon this example enjoyed a full detailed mechanical service by Essex based V8 supremo, Rikki Cann. So in total, 15821 has been the subject of some £50,000 of recent improvement making this the exceptional car it is today. Working very much with the current owner, recognised to be one of the most fastidious enthusiasts and multi concourse competitor, this fantastic Vantage Volante has since, enjoyed many more detail improvements and is unexpectedly available only to make room for another project. Even with the market finally establishing robust values for these rare convertible Vantage’s and the market confirming almost a 100% uplift in values over the last two years, some caution needs to be applied when considering acquisition and in most cases, some budget for improvements. Therefore to find a similarly pampered example presented in the most desirable livery ready to be enjoyed must be an unrepeatable opportunity.
