This model ran from 1978 to 1989
A 5.3Litre V-8 delivers 380hp through a 3-speed automatic transmission.
The roof is fully electric.
Theis beautiful blue exterior paint colour is called "Canterbury" and the interior is "Magnolia"
The Volante, like other traditional Astons, was entirely hand-built.
Smog control dropped the engine power over the life of this car, so earlier models are generally more sought after.
