The six cylinder William Towns styled DBS had been around for a
couple of years. but customers were anxiously awaiting the new V8
engine. Raced in 1967 in a Lola. the 5. 1 V8 needed three years of
development to turn it into a powerful and reliable road engine of
5. 3 litres. It was in April 1970 that the DBS V8 was finally made
available. immediately making it one of the fastest cars in the
world. With space for four people in luxury. it was a true Grand
Tourer. From April 1972. the DBS V8 received a restyle and a new
name. The 'DB' was dropped as David Brown had sold the company and
the car became known simply as the 'Aston Martin V8'. The most
visible change was the adoption of two seven inch quartz iodine
headlamps and black mesh grill. the design of which was the work of
the original designer. William Towns. to bring back the familiar
shape of the DB3S and DB Mk. III. In August 1973. a new Aston
Martin V8 was unveiled. The V8 became known as the AM V8. Visual
differences included twin quartz headlights and a mesh grill. a
front design which was to last until the end of production in 1989
and used a similar engine to the DBS V8 with just 288 Series II
cars built.

Maintained in completely original condition throughout its
entire life. this extremely well presented Series II car has had
just one owner from new who has recorded only 61. 00 miles since
collecting it from the factory. The clutch has recently been
replaced and a full history accompanies the car. Reassuringly. both
sills have also been replaced as is the way with these V8 Aston
Martins. Supplied in a classic 1970's colour scheme of Cairgorn
brown with a contrasting off-white interior. this extremely
collectable example also comes complete with a British Motor
Industry Heritage Trust certificate.
