The V8 Vantage Oscar India was produced from 1978 1986 and formally known as the Series 2. There were three variants, the V540 OI, V580 and V580 BBS. When the standard V8 Coupe received updates known as the Oscar India, the Vantage received much the same treatment. The rear spoiler became much neater and fully integral, the bonnet became smoother with a closed bonnet bulge that was used across the range, V8 Coupe, V8 Volante and V8 Vantage. The only external differences between the standard V8 Coupe and V8 Vantage was the large front air dam, blanked off grille and badges, the V580 BBS specification V8 Vantage has slightly larger wheel arches to accommodate the 15x8" BBS wheels originally fitted. The interior was more luxurious than the earlier V8 Vantage with wood veneers used for the dash and door cappings.

Powered by a 400 bhp, 5,340 cc DOHC alloy V-8 engine with four Weber downdraft carburetors, the Series II V8 Vantage was tested by Motor magazine on April 25, 1981, produced a 060 time of only 5.2 seconds and was deemed the fastest accelerating production car in the world at the time. It also had a top speed of over 180 mph making the V8 Vantage quite the trans-continental barn-stormer.

This V8 Vantage Oscar India V580 BBS was completely restored by Aston Martin Works at a cost of over $300,000.00 and has accumulated 200 miles since. Everything and anything was gone through during this no expense spared restoration including converting the car to left-hand drive as if it was originally delivered in this fashion from the factory, it is exacting.
