Ordered and supplied new to Beverley Hills California USA and Albert R ‘Cubby’ Broccoli the US film producer most noted for producing many of the James Bond films together with Harry Saltzman.
In 1987 Cubby was producing the latest Bond movie ‘The Living Daylights’ with Timothy Dalton as 007. This new Bond film and new 007 also marked the return of Bond driving the latest Aston Martin V8 adorned with Q branch modifications. Two different Aston Martin models were used in filming—a V8 Volante convertible, and later for the Czechoslovakia scenes, a hard-top non-Volante V8 saloon badged to look like the Volante. The Volante was a production model owned by then Aston Martin Lagonda chairman, Victor Gauntlett.
Broccoli ordered this AM V8 Volante in Masons black with natural leather interior and BBS alloys. The US spec impact bumpers and marker lights are all still present.
Broccoli kept the car until his death and the family decided to sell the Aston a few years later to a private buyer.
The Aston has covered just 19,000 miles from new and is in superb condition in all respects and comes with the original build sheets, handbook and sales invoice plus other correspondence. Currently UK registered and taxes paid, the Aston is available for Worldwide shipping including a possible return to the USA.
