This was actually Victor Gauntlett's (then-Chairman of Aston Martin) personal car. A V8 Volante fitted with a Vantage engine!

From an article reposted on the Commander Bond forums (2nd comment down): Link to "debrief.commanderbond.net"

Quote The Volanté was the first V8 Aston Martin seen in the film, is fitted with a manual gearbox and no gadgets were employed on it. That particular Volanté was the vehicle originally registered as B549WUU (as used in the film) to Victor Gauntlet, then Executive Chairman of Aston Martin Lagonda Limited and loaned to Eon on the condition that it was not involved in any of the stunts – perhaps they couldn’t get any stand-in Volantés. After filming was completed, the index (registration) number was retained (although withdrawn as a registered number) for the AML promotional (“show car”) Vantage. The Volanté was later sold, adopting a new personalised index number – ASV870.

Make/Model ASTON MARTIN V8 VOLANTE

as it's really a standard V8 fitted with the Vantage engine (and not the other parts) it shouldn't be listed as a Vantage.

Why not? Because it's before the production model of the V8 Vantage Volante?

Yes, and no bodykit (which all actual Vantage Volantes had).
