1996 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Sportsman Estate

This creation was commissioned by two Swiss brothers in 1996, looking to add an inkling of usability to the typically sporty nature synonymous with Aston Martin products. It uses the V8 Coupe as its base and borrows the same 330-horsepower (246-kilowatt) V8 suitable for a top speed of 160 miles per hour (257 kilometers per hour) and a 0 to 60 mph (96 kmh) sprint of fewer than seven seconds. It wears the chassis number SCFCAM2SCTBL79007 and initially left the factory as a stock V8 Coupe before being returned and modified.

It’s a rare left-hand drive, automatic, and left the factory in July of 1996. Since then, the Aston Martin Works department has maintained the car meticulously, assuring this rare piece of motoring remains in pristine condition, now going on more than 20 years. The green leather interior matches the British Racing Green found on the body and comes with a smattering of walnut detailing throughout. In 1999, the factory entirely rebuilt the engine, having driven just 5,755 miles (9,263 kilometers).
