Tom has owned for 10 years. It was the Octane Magazine cover car for issue #97 July 2011. 1 of 50 produced, Original colours of Gladiator Red over Black leather. Original Right-Hand Drive. Wheel conversion to Ronal wheels.
Acquired last year, and collected on what was my 50th birthday! A life long dream fulfilled in the shape of this 1977 AMV8 Saloon. The car has a huge history file and the previous owner enjoyed it for 30 years, being one of two AM V8s he had - this particular one was used for European road trips and has a couple of helpful upgrades in the form of AP Racing brakes and a lock-up on the auto gearbox. Finished in the non-standard colour of Regency Bronze and with a Fawn interior, this is a 'keeper' for me. As such I will continue to invest in maintaining and suitably improving the car so that I too can enjoy it on European trips. Currently in for new dampers and an improved front anti-roll bar, with a couple of other jobs in the pipeline. In the meantime I'm just looking forward to doing a lot more UK events once lockdown is lifted. Soon after I bought the car I was contacted by an auto-journalist-photographer from Petrolicious, and the car was subsequently featured by them last summer - some of those photos can be seen below.
