The badge on the tailgate of the 5 door spells ‘Vacances’ although I’ve never known the car described in this way. This left hand driver car started life as an early Virage production coupe before the extensive conversion process. The finished car with Hunter Green coachwork was built to full 6.3 engine specification together with a five speed manual gearbox. Also with rear facing child seats in the luggage compartment, this must hold the record as the Aston Martin with the most seats, with space for 7 people.
To the best of my knowledge, this car, chassis 50005 was a conversion of an early Virage by Works Service and is perhaps the only one especially converted. A small batch of six further 5 door shooting brakes were subsequently made of an overseas Royal family. Instead of a 12 inch stretch, these six cars, built from scratch rather than concerted, were made with an extra 16 inches added to the wheelbase
