David Browns ambition to take Aston Martin to new heights required a more powerful V8 engine to replace their established straight six. Whilst the DBS went into production in 1967 it wasnt until two years later that the car received the new, more powerful, V8. The V8 powered DBS ensured Aston could offer one of the fastest production cars in the world. Unfortunately, this was not enough to return Aston Martin to profit and as such David Brown sold the company to Company Developments in 1972.

After Company Developments acquisition of Aston Martin work started on a comprehensive facelift of the DBSV8. The main visual differences were the adoption of single headlamps and a revised front grille. Now known as the AMV8, the car retained the Bosch mechanical fuel injection system until August 1973, when four twin choke Weber carburettors were fitted, together with updates to the interior trim, a bigger bonnet bulge to clear the carburettor air box and a re-designed fuel tank to allow more luggage space. Powered by the Tadek Marek designed all aluminium 5.3 litre V8 engine producing in excess of 310 bhp, the AMV8 was capable of accelerating from rest to 60 mph in just 6.1 secs and on to a claimed top speed of 140 mph.

The Aston Martin V8 offered here at Autostorico is 1974 Series III example which was supplied new in the UK. Finished in Blue metallic with Blue leather interior this rare manual car has covered 121,912 miles. This collectable Aston Martin is made rarer still by the addition of a factory fit sunroof. The car has been in the same family ownership for the last 17 years and during that time has benefited from a mechanical overhaul. The current owner has had the car out in Sardinia for the last two years and has recently driven the car back to the UK without it missing a beat. Whilst the car is mechanically sound it would benefit from some cosmetic attention as the body work is starting to show signs of corrosion.

The car comes complete with an owners manual and history file detailing mechanical works completed over the years by the likes of Pugsley & Lewis Ltd, Trinity Engineering and Mike Morgan. The car is also supplied with a number of previous MOTs to corroborate the mileage.

Viewing strictly by appointment only.
