The V8 was a further development of the Aston Martin DBS. This LHD car was supplied by the French Aston Martin importer. The car is in lovely original condition other than having been cosmetically resprayed in the past in the original colour. Maintenance in recent years has been courtesy of Kroymans Aston Martin in Holland. The car drives and handles a treat.

The bodywork is completely original and is in fine shape. The evenly thin panelwork has all the right alignments. Everything points to a car that has lived a pampered life due to its loving owners. A car that has been through the mill would never look as good as this one. The wheels are original and in fine fettle, with the same being true for the brightwork and lights.

The interior is all original, upholstered in fine, supple black leather. The dark grey carpets are still in good condition and fit neatly. The nice dashboard follows good British tradition with its array of Smith instruments. What catches your eye when opening the door is the fact this one of the rare carburettor engined cars with manual transmission. The ZF gearbox works smoothly and has great gear ratios.

As mentioned above the maintenance was carried out by Kroymans and that is not the only advantage this car is privy to. This just happens to be a 1974 Aston Martin V8 boasting a full 314 hp as opposed to later cars

with a CO emission lowering 280 hp. Whilst 10 percent lower power does not seem a lot, the extra power does help the engine character. This V8 runs freely delivering its power with abandon. The engine is as smooth as you like from its lower ranger right up to its top whilst giving you a huge amount of pleasure on the way. Are you in a hurry? No worries on that account either, Aston Martin tell us this V8 does 0-100 km/hr in 5.7 seconds thanks to its manual transmission. Brakes and suspension are all in great order adding their part to the car’s overall splendid handling.

The Aston Martin V8 is the ultimate gentleman’s GT made to forge on ahead at speed. This example is a delightful handling car thanks to the TLC metered out by its owners, good maintenance and low mileage. It awaits its new owner and is ready to provide many more miles of unadulterated Aston Martin pleasure.
