THE ASTON MARTIN DBS V8

Bigger and more luxuriously appointed than the DB6, whose 4.0-liter straight six engine it shared, the heavier DBS disappointed some by virtue of its slightly reduced performance, but there were no complaints when the V8 arrived in 1969. With an estimated 345bhp available from its 5,340cc, fuel-injected, four-cam motor, the DBS V8 could reach 100mph in under 14 seconds, running on to a top speed of 160mph - a staggering performance in those days and one which fully justified the claim that it was the fastest production car in the world. Even in automatic transmission form the V8 could reach 100mph in around 15 seconds and 145mph flat-out.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

DBS V8 number 351, being the 351st in sequence of their build for the model was ordered new through Aston Martin Lagonda Inc. on October 15, 1971 and supplied two weeks later on November 1. According to information charting its build it was specified with 'Fuel Injection, Automatic Transmission, Air conditioning, Lear Jet AM/FM Stereo/Radio, Fiamm Horns, Waso Steering Lock, two Head Rests, and Ignition Buzzer and Two Rear Lap Belts'. The well-optioned car was finished in Ascot Grey, which was contrasted with Maroon leather interior.

By 2004, according to an old title document of file (with a typographical error of VIN 10350), the Aston is believed to have been New Jersey, with an Anthony Willis of West Orange. From Willis it passed to Gullwing Motors in 2008, and then to the current owner later that year. By then the car was already as we see it today, clearly having been repainted to a good standard in a rich sky-blue color, while the interior appears to be the original only dyed black since there is evidence of the red showing through the leather. Interestingly, the sometimes complicated fuel injection system has been replaced with a quartet of Weber carburetors carefully manifolded over the top of the engine, which combined with 5.4 liters of V8 must make the car go far better than it did when new.

Unused since transacting in the late 2000s, it will require some recommissioning prior to active road use and enjoying the sound of its breathing through carburetors.
