Looking wonderful in its original colour Deep Carriage Green, this aluminium alloy sports car is the epitome of British motoring spirit combined with Italian styling flair.
This V8 represents the pinnacle of decades of hand-assembled Aston Martin production. Only 970 Series 3 cars were produced, of which 439 were RHD automatics. True craftsmanship shows itself in every detail and the stunning combination of beauty, and its luxury and power are as rare today as they were when this car first saw the light of day. With the introduction of the Aston Martin’s V8 this model propelled Newport Pagnell back into the supercar league of car manufacturers.
The brainchild of Aston Martin designers and engineers, the power unit was a masterpiece. Eight cylinders, four overhead camshafts, 5340cc capacity, and 9:1 compression ratio. The powerful, yet docile engine accelerates smoothly, and will happily cruise at high speed. Large ventilated Girling brake discs all round provide the stopping power and the 7” wide alloys assist the magnificent road holding. This is a true four seater, luxury grand tourer.
