1988 Aston Martin V8 Convertible Coupe

  • Chassis Number: SCFCV81C7JTL15644
  • Engine Number: V/585/5644/LFA
This Aston Martin V8 Volante was supplied by Aston Martin Lagonda of North America Inc. to official agents Palm Beach Motor Cars of Florida on March 23, 1988. It returned to Europe in 1989 and into the care of Jeffrey Steiner, CEO of the Fairchild Corporation. Mr. Steiner entrusted the Volante to RS Williams of Surrey, England for a complete restoration in 2009 and a conversion to seven-liter specification. The engine received Cosworth pistons, new liners, a nitrided crankshaft, and a bespoke ECU. Additionally, a new wiring harness and automatic transmission were fitted, the braking system was rebuilt, and the suspension was overhauled. The bodywork was stripped and refinished in Dark Grey, complemented by a black soft top and tan leather upholstery.

When the restoration was completed in 2011, the car's original U.S. speedometer, then showing 26,109 miles, was replaced with a new, zeroed unit reading in kilometers.

In 2017, the car was sold to Kurt Engelhorn of Gstaad, Switzerland who sold it to the current owner in 2019.
