It's not often that we are able to offer an Aston Martin as unique as this lovely Fuel Injected DBS V8.
What makes it so special?
Much is talked about the fact that the DBS was designed from the outset as a V8, but had to be launched with the 3.9 litre 6 cylinder engine from the outgoing DB6 because the new V8 wasn't quite ready in time.
Well what we have here is an Aston that played a key role in the development of that V8, a prototype that was run by Aston Martin alongside the 6 cylinder production cars and one of the first road going cars to be fitted with a V8 engine, initially a 5.0 litre.
The Aston still retains unique Factory fitted, prototype styling cues, most notably the bonnet with it's fabulous twin air intakes. Other unique elements include aluminium gutter mouldings and a loudspeaker integrated centrally within the rear seat!
Following it's development role it was sold to David Preece who replaced the 5.0 litre prototype engine with the the production 5.3 litre version and that's pretty much how it has remained ever since.
The subject of a recent major refurbishment that covered both bodywork and mechanicals, this fantastic V8 offers the opportunity to purchase not only a fast appreciating classic Aston Martin, but one that is part of the company's history.
All classic Aston Martins are rare and desirable, but it is exceptionally rare to come across a "one-off" factory prototype for sale, and as such we anticipate a great deal of interest.
