Chassis no. V8/11252/RCA
*Series 3 model with Weber carburettors
*Automatic transmission
*Rare electric sunroof option


Testing an Aston martin V8 Series 3 in November 1973, Autosport's John Bolster observed that even a short drive proved that the luxurious Aston was, above all, still a sports car: "It has the sheer cornering power of light competition cars, with the responsive steering of the best vintage marques. In spite of its weight, it has acceleration which is outstanding among even among the world's most exotic speed models."

Its accompanying BMIHT Certificate states that this Aston Martin V8 was delivered new to Plough Motors & Co Ltd of Stonehouse. The car was delivered fitted with the following items of factory fitted equipment: automatic transmission; electric sunroof; lockable centre armrest; over-riders; side repeater flashers; side marker lights; large-capacity fuel tank; heavy-duty shock absorbers; AM/FM radio/cassette player; two headrests; and two door mirrors.

When last registered in the UK the Aston belonged to Mr Dennis Clark of Wiltshire and before him to Patrick Gregory of Somerset (copy V5C on file). Having been stored for the intervening period, the car may require some re-commissioning prior to road use. Please note that should car car remain in the UK, an import duty rate of 5% is applicable.
