1986 ASTON MARTIN V8 ZAGATO – Chassis no. 20011
Auction Estimate: £300,000 – 340,000
Constructed in 1985-86, chassis ‘20011’ is one of only three such pre-production vehicles and one of only two right-hand drive examples. In Concours condition, a 2016 Concorso Eleganza Villa d’Este invitee and with provenance to match, this ultra-rare Aston Martin is estimated at £300,000 – 340,000. This first owner of this particularly rare and desirable car was Wensley Haydon-Baillie who was a discerning Aston Martin marque enthusiast, enjoying a close relationship with the Aston Martin company Chairman, Victor Gauntlett. In common with all Haydon-Baillie commissioned cars – chassis ‘20011’ was delivered to an extraordinarily high and bespoke specification. It is one of only four V8 Zagatos known to have been powered from new by the Tadek Marek-designed 5.3-litre 4-cam V8 engine in uprated 432bhp tune. One of only two which feature an integral roll-over bar, its specification also includes black leather seat upholstery, leather-covered facia/dashboard panel, leather-covered steering wheel, all as per the original build sheet, a copy of which is with the car, together with other extensive history and factory memos about this and the other early pre-production cars.
