V8 Vantage, Zagato Mule

(1978 - 1985)

This car, V8/11967/RCAV, a V540 V8 Vantage series 1, was purchased back in the Summer of 1978 and received the regsitertion number, VNK360S. Sadly, the car had overheating problems and was bought back by the factory from the unhappy owner. The factory initially used VINky as a factory demonstrator and press car before in was passed to the Engineering Department for their use in testing developments for the AMV8.Towards the end of it’s life with AML, it became the test-bed for the Vantage Zagato, otherwise known as a ‘mule’.

Although the exterior remained as standard, the car was stripped of excess weight. This involved the removal of most of the interior trim, the rear seats were ditched, as was the spare wheel, a smaller, lighter fuel tank fitted, heating and air-com removal and the side glass replied by lighter Perspex. All this with the intention of dropping the weight to about 1600kg, the same as the upcoming V8 Zagato. A special development engine, a forerunner to the upcoming X-pack V8 was fitted giving peak power of 437 bhp at 6,250 RPM, together with a low ratio differential allowed for the dash from 0 to 60 mph without the need to change gear. The car was as quick as a V8 Zagato and was and still is probably the fastest standard bodied V8 Vantage ever.
