These photographs are from the 2010 Bonhams Paris auction catalogue when this car was initially put up for sale and then withdrawn shortly before the sale. The car was again offered for sale by the French auction house, Cornette de Saint Cyr in Paris, October 2014. Photographs have also borrowed from their catalogue.
V8 ‘Sportsman’ Shooting Brake
(1997 - 1999)
An almost matching pair of V8 Coupes were rebuilt by Works Service as a three door Shooting Brake with front and rear lights from the Vantage/V8 coupe. I saw one car twice during it's construction the late 1990's during visits to AML Works Service and it also appeared briefly in an episode of Top Gear in 1999. The cars, both LHD were both finished in a non-metallic British Racing Green and sold to customers in mainland Europe. The only key differences between the two was that one car had 'stepped' rear lights with V8 Coupe rear fog lights, the other side by side with V8 Vantage rear fog lights.
