Here we have a very nice example of one of the most undervalued Aston Martins in the current market. This car is a UK supplied RHD 1977 Aston Martin V8 Coupe.
Aston Martin had always planned that the DBS of 1967 would be powered by its new V8 engine. first seen in 5. 0 litre form in the Lola-Aston Martin sports-racing cars. Production problems. however. intervened and the DBS used the 4. 0 litre. twin overhead camshaft. straight six of the concurrently produced DB6. It was not until September 1967 that the DBS V8 was finally announced. production commencing the following April. With its platform chassis and independent suspension - coil spring/wishbone front. de Dion tube rear with Watt linkage and twin radius arms - the fine handling DBS was a perfect home for Tadek Marek's all-alloy V8.
Boasting four overhead camshafts and Bosch electronic fuel injection. the 5. 40cc V8 produced an impressive 320bhp at 5. 00rpm and 360lb. ft; the resultant 160mph plus performance was nothing short of staggering in 1970. After David Brown sold Aston Martin in February 1972 the DBS V8 was replaced by the Series 2 model. now simply called the Aston Martin V8. Gone were the four headlamps and slatted grille. in their place a black mesh grille flanked by single headlamps; mechanical changes were limited to electronic ignition and standard air conditioning.
August 1973 saw the Series 3 arrive with quadruple Weber carburettors. larger bonnet bulge. improved seats and central locking; power for this model rose to 304bhp in June 1977.
Beautiful Black leather with cream carpets with Black fluffy overmats make this a wonderful place to sit. there is nothing to address here.
The Dark Blue paintwork is superb with only one slight blister visible on a rear seam. faultless elsewhere including the wheels and tyres.
The car has been fully stored and maintained perfectly so it is ready to just drive away.
Here we have a real handbuilt Series III Aston V8 Coupe finished in the perfect colours. nicely restored with no outstanding issues and a comprehensive service history. THe values of this model are rising all the time and this is one you can use regularly
