February 1977 heralded the arrival of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage.

The first batch of cars (16) featured a rear spoiler that was added after the body was built and the bonnet air intake sealed with a bolt on cover.

This early run of cars is often called ‘Bolt-on’ Vantages.

The following 23 Vantages featured the rear spoiler made integral to the body and the opening in the bonnet air intake welded shut during production.

This run of cars is often called ‘flip tail’ Vantages.

This superb example is one such ‘flip tail’

In stunning Imperial blue with black hide, it was delivered to its first owner in May 1978.
