Capable of a 0 to 60 mph sprint in just over 5 seconds, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Oscar India was the fastest accelerating production automobile in the world upon its introduction in 1978. Aston Martin built 291 Oscar India coupes between 1978 and 1986, only 64 of which left the factory in left-hand-drive configuration. Of those 64, only 3 were imported to North American in full “Vantage” spec; #82AV1 is one of those three cars.
“Seriously folks, the original V8 Vantage is one of the greatest cars ever.”— Jonny Lieberman, Jalopnik
