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

The production DBS V8 chassis number sequence commenced with '10001', making this the 356th example of this landmark model built. According to the copies of factory records on file, this V8 was ordered new through Aston Martin Lagonda, Inc for export. Finished in the exceedingly Tudor Green over Tan leather, 10356 was handsomely optioned with air conditioning, automatic transmission, dual head rests, aerial and speakers, Waso steering lock, and Fiam horns. Completed in on December 17, 1971 and shipped a six days later on December 23, 1971 the first owner and any early history on the car is not recorded. At some point, likely in the last two decades, the car was repainted fire engine red but the interior appears to be original. Noted as having been in the U.S. in the early 1990s according to records from the Aston Martin Owners Club, it was presented in 1989-91 by a J. Stinsmen of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The present owner acquired the car from New Jersey in March of 2008 and has maintained the car on static display since. Given its long-term storage without use, it will require some recommissioning prior to active road use.
