Stratton Motor Company are pleased to be able to offer for sale this iconic piece of British motoring history.
The Series 111 Vantage (Oscar India), commonly known as the X-Pack, and a natural progression from the William Towns designed DBS, was arguably Britain’s first supercar, with a top speed of 175mph and 0-60 in 5.3 seconds and faster than it’s competition, the Lamborghini Countach and the Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer.
Using the Tadek Marek designed V8 engine, it was a tuned version of the breathing through a quartet of Weber 48mm carburettors rather than the standard 42mm units. Valves and Ports were enlarged and the camshaft profiles updated, the end result being an estimated maximum output of around 403bhp. Chassis changes were minimal apart from the adoption of bigger ventilated brake discs and all round low profile tyres. The Vantage was, nevertheless, readily distinguishable from the standard product by virtue of its blocked off bonnet scoop, blanked air intake, front chin spoiler and lip in the boot lid.
This car is number 68 of just 131 genuine factory-built X-Pack saloons that sets it apart from those which were modified at the factory at Newport Pagnell after sale, and one of just 84 right hand drive manual (5-speed) cars produced.
It still wears its original colours, Salisbury Blue with Dark Blue Hide and Piping interior and has covered some 67000 miles from new with a comprehensive history.
This car, ‘12617’ is also something of a media star having been the ‘Cover Car’ for Classic & Sportscar Magazine in May 2011 as well as featuring in other motoring journals ‘Octane’ and ‘Classic Cars’.
This car will be supplied fully serviced with a comprehensive 12 month warranty, RAC breakdown and recovery for complete peace of mind.
