Growing in popularity, is the V8 Series 3 a worthwhile investment?

20 November 2020

Launched in 1973, the Aston Martin V8 Series 3 has grown in popularity over the last few years and is considered a worthwhile investment opportunity.


Our 1974 Aston Martin V8 Series 3, is presented in its original colour; Tudor Green and fitted with an aftermarket wood rim steering wheel is in stunning condition after the current owners had the car recommissioned and serviced by restoration expert Rikki Cann.


Originally registered to the Aston Martin experimental department, it was sold to a world-famous manufacturer of sporting guns and rifles, from Covent Garden, London.


What makes the V8 Series 3 unique?


Between 1973 and 1978, only 967 examples were made making it a rare car. Distinguished by a taller hood scoop to accommodate the four twin-choke (two-barrel) Weber carbs the Series 3 has become a valuable collectors item. 


Rolling off the factory floor, the car produced 310 BHP and could reach 60 mph (97 km/h) in 6.1 seconds with an automatic transmission or 5.7 seconds with a manual gearbox. 


However in 1976, the performance of the car had to fall too 288 BHP due to emissions regulations. The next year, a more powerful ’Stage 1’ engine was introduced with new camshafts and exhaust bringing it back up to 304 BHP.
