YEAR OF MANUFACTURE: 1994 ENGINE NO. V590/70055/M CHASSIS NO. SCFDAM1S0SBL70055 VANTAGE ENGINE HAND-BUILT BY: RON RUSSELL
1st Reg Overseas from new as it was an extra rare LHD manufactured Red Vantage. Then Registered for the first time in the UK on 17/08/2004 with the Registration Number M483 OBD. It was the 55th TSC Vantage made out of 236. It was an unusual colour (Red not being a popular choice for an Aston), and is pictured, when sold new, in a showroom in 1994.
Only 8 TSC Vantage Volante were ever made and are now valued in excess of £350,000; as last one sold for £1/4M a few years back. Now none of these 284 TSC Vantages were Widebody cars. Our Original 1 of only 3 Original AMW built TSC style Widebody Volante is the same Year of manufacture as this Engine (TSC Vantage), and has also been specially hand-built by the same Legendary Engine Builder: RON RUSSELL, (the best); one month after the other. Therefore the similarities are quite remakable from a historical aspect, about matching this engine to our rare TSC style widebody Volante, to make it totally unique among all Astons! Our Volante has only done 41,000 miles; another uncanny similarity with this TSC engine. We can arrange the installation all fully Warrantied for 3 Years at extra cost, if required.
AMW Heritage charge around £57,000 including the vat, to rebuild a TSC Engine to full V600 Spec and have a waiting list. (It is over £110,000+ to replace the complete engine without an exchange). Upon conversion all insignia, badges & shrouds were changed to V600 as well. The cost of conversion of the 550 Vantage to FULL V600 Spec was upto £50,000 in the 1990's, not including any engine rebuild, but minor alterations, but a whole host of other improvements, including Supersports exhaust, complete suspension upgrade, and 6 pot APR brake system among other items. An estimated 30-40 TSC Vantages FH may have had these very expensive conversions carried out, to add to the Original 40 Le Mans Coupes made to celebrate Anniversary, which contrary to popular belief came standard with the 550BHP engine, although majority opted for the V600. List price new was €1/2 Million Euros on the Continent for this model. So the total number of V600 Coupes may only number 60 odd including the exorbitant Le Mans models, plus the 8 V600 Volante.
We can partially subsidise this immense rebuilding cost, if both the TSC style widebody Volante and virtually matching V600 spec engine are purchased together, fully installed, with all appropriate insignia, and even with an unbelievable 36 Month Warranty. A Totally Unique Aston!
Please enquire about viewing Library picture examples of each of the Original 8 V600 Volante made, each worth £350,000 to £500,000 even now, but without a WIDE-BODY! Then decide which has the most glorious shape, poise and menace; our one, or these 8?
Another bonus is to match this superb engine to a beefed-up Super Tough ZF Gearbox and Clutch, that the vast majority of Vantages came with. Plus avoids the huge cost of replacing the clutch every so often.
#N.B. Please note, as mentioned previously, this price is just for the engine and not with the car as well, which is listed separately for £168,000!
