We are delighted to offer for sale this stunning Aston Martin DBS V8 Sports Saloon that represents one of the most important milestones in Aston Martin history and the commencement of the V8 generation. Presented in Platinum Silver with contrasting Dark Blue leather interior this vehicle is accompanied by an extensive service history file having covered only 47682 miles.
From 1969 through 1972, Aston's flagship model was the DBS V8. Though the body and name were shared with the six-cylinder DBS, the V8 sold for much more. The body was a modern reinterpretation of the traditional Aston Martin look, with a squared-off grille and four headlights (William Towns admitted that the rear quarters were "borrowed" from the early Ford Mustang). Distinguishing features of the V8 model are the larger front air dam, 225/70VR15 tyres and lack of wire wheels, though some six-cylinder DBS cars also used the V8's alloy wheels. The tail lights were taken from the Hillman Hunter.
Marek's V8 engine displaced 5.3 L (5,340 cc) and used Bosch fuel injection. The DBS V8 could reach 100km/h (62mph) in 7.1 seconds and had a top speed of 242km/h (150 mph) with only 402 DBS V8s were ever built.
For further information or to book an appointment to view the vehicle please contact a member of the sales team on 01207 233525.
