Style was based on the Aston Martin V8 with several aerodynamic aesthetic touches including a solid front air dam with twin CIBIE lights while a front spoiler to draw in air to the radiator. The famous “Flip Tail” spoiler was bolted onto the first 16 cars, and became an integrated part of the body work after.

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months
