The 1989 model-year was the last year of production for the Aston Martin V8, and the new Aston Martin Virage, having launched in 1988, makes the V8 Aston Martins of this era quite sought after. With its four headlights, BBS wheels and absence of a bonnet bulge (which became useless as the carburetors were replaced by a smaller fuel-injection system), the Series 5 of Aston Martin V8 are easy to identify. The inside also offered significant improvements with the leather headlining, re-styled center console, wood-embellished fascia and improved air conditioning, making the this grand touring classic a very refined vehicle. Many technical revisions were also made to the 1988 Aston Martin V8 such as the addition of a limited-slip differential, heated rear window and electric window lifts. The result is a powerful and advanced sports car, efficient and comfortable, with an iconic design. The 1988 Aston Martin V8 could be ordered with a Vantage engine, boosting the horsepower up to 40% and making it the fastest 4-seater grand touring car in the world at the time. The Volante (or Convertible) version was also very popular, and is still highly desirable especially in the California market.
Just 405 examples of the Coupe version of the Aston Martin V8 Series 5 were made between 1986 and 1989, and only 216 of the Volante model.
