Following the show, the car was sold to a Middle Eastern collector and was not seen for some time until it returned to the UK after 20 or so years away. Many of the photographs here show the car when it was offered for sale by Bonhams auctioneers at Works Service in 2012.
V8 Vantage Zagato Volante Prototype
At the Geneva show in 1987 the prototype convertible version of the Zagato was unveiled. This car, chassis 42, was actually one of the 52 original V8 Zagatos and thus received the full Vantage specification. Apart from the lack of a fixed roof, the major external change from the Coupe was a new dummy radiator grill and pivoted ’eyelids’ to cover the head lamps when they are not in use.
