Aston Martin automobiles have a stigma attached to them; they are the quintessence of cool. This is the reason that we frequently see these beautiful cars in 007 movies. In The Living Daylights, we got a glimpse of the V8 Vantage X-Pack, and now this dark green, more muscular-toned car is heading to auction.

Its dark emerald color is only one of its many gorgeous features. It has the look of a Mustang, but with the sportier design of typical Aston Martins. It has a 432 bhp, 5,340 cc DOHC aluminum V-8 engine with a five speed ZF manual transmission. It was never sold in the U.S. due to emission regulations, thanks to its 4×2 Weber carburetors and low-restriction exhaust. This is one in just 137 that were manufactured, and it has gone through a full cosmetic restoration by specialists in the U.K. before being placed on the auction block.
