Aston Martin  V8 details

Aston Martin V8

We love these Astons.  Big British and powerful.   Designed by William Town the car appeared first as the DBS to replace the DB5. Originally with the 6 cylinder engine  it was followed soon after by the Aston Martin designed 5340cc V8 engine. It lasted until 1990 when replaced by Virage .

The car appeared as the quintessential British GT in many TV programs and movies, most famously driven by James Bond in the Living Daylights and by Brett  Sinclair in the Persuaders. Both British gentlemen!

An engineering  tour de force for the time it was powered by an amazing engine mated to a 3 speed Torqueflite gearbox . it’s a car to point and shoot to Le Mans or indeed a nice run to a country pub.  And that soundtrack.  The V8 burble still has a unique spine stingling effect.

Our car is finished in striking colours of Masons Black with a beautiful cream interior. Purposeful and elegant  we have sympathetically restored this car. All usual Aston Martin bodywork issues have been resolved and mechanically the car has been fettled to unleash the linear power these cars are known for.

Currently having the engine re-built by a renowned Aston Martin specialist and will be completed by the end of January.

With gearbox stripped and reassembled £119k

A great example overall.
