Time for another desirable auto in the run-up to RM Auctions’ Dingman sale in Hampton, NH, next month.

Here we have a 1989 Aston Martin Vantage Volante, a rare British model from the former Ford Motors board chairman’s collection, expected to fetch up to $175,000.

Launched in 1972 to update the DBS, the V-8 was the final model developed during the David Brown era and became the longest-running model in the company’s history.

A true four-seater with the potential for 160 mph speeds, this handbuilt British grand tourer was without a doubt one of the fastest and most elegant cars of its generation.

Or of any generation, for that matter…
