This particular DBS conjures up an image of the super stylish 70's, evoking the period perfectly with it's special order Verde Aqua/Light Sand colour scheme and chrome wire wheels, the epitome of cool and nothing short of astonishing at the time.
This is a rare opportunity to own a really fine example of this sublime Aston, with much work undertaken and an extensive history file dating all the way back to 1970!
This file includes a documented speedometer change at 48,845 in 1977. Add this to the 49,972 showing today and you have a total mileage of 98,817, with just 4,600 of these miles covered in the last 25 years!
No expense has been spared in making this wonderful Aston look & drive exactly as it should, indeed, we consider this to be probably the best 'driving' DBS we have ever had at Aston Workshop.
The vantage model is always sought after by Aston Martin enthusiasts, but this example was subject to a complete engine rebuild in 2003 (at a cost of over £15,000), including conversion to unleaded. As part of the rebuild it's capacity was also raised to 4.2 Litres resulting in 306hp at 5,000rpm and maximum torque of 321 at 4,500rpm making it a Vantage among Vantages.
Other work documented includes:
A full, professional, bare metal respray in 2004
Interior fully stripped, all leatherwork replaced and integrated headrests fitted.
Burr walnut dash, steering wheel and door trim fitted.
New, matching headlining and carpets fitted.
Aston Martin electric door mirrors fitted and colour coded with body.
New front windscreen and rear heated screen.
Upgraded 3-speed motor control for the heating system.
Upgraded sound system including CD (original radio mobile has been retained).
These fabulous DBS models have witnessed a surge in interest over the last few years and the rare Vantage model even more so.
This fantastic example has had many tens of thousands spent on making it one of the best looking and best performing DBS Vantage available.
