DBS - DBS V8 - Aston Martin Towns v8

Specialist Auto Repair: Alfa Romeo ~ Lotus ~ MG ~ Austin .

The bonnet scoop was finally closed on the Oscar India V8 – leaving a pleasantly sculptured power bulge. Many cars were also fitted with twin Cibie driving lamps within the radiator intake plus fog lamps under the front bumper. The GKN wheels remained standard from the introduction of the model but were replaced by the attractive BBS cross spoke type with 8 inch rims from 1983.

One of the principle external changes to the Oscar India was the incorporation of a neat integral spoiler, under the guidance of William Towns, the cars original designer. On of the photographs in nthe gallery below compares the rear of a blue Oscar India with a brown Bosch f.i. car.

Also in the gallery is a  later V580 spec Oscar India, fitted with the BBS wheels, was photographed at Coys festival, 1998. Performance from the carburettor fed V8 remained strong with a 146 mph top speed and 60 mph coming up from rest in as little as 6.6 seconds, even with the commonly fitted auto box (although both Autocar and Motor magazines couldn’t do better than 7.2). But the AM V8 didn’t now have to provide ultimate thrills, the V8 Vantage fulfilled that role admirably.

The Torqueflite three speed automatic gearbox was fitted to a vast majority of non Vantage V8’s. AML was able to buy them from Chrysler for the small sum of just £150 which was tiny compared to the £1500 cost of the ZF 5 speed manual.

The interior if the Oscar India cars was comprehensively revised in line with the recently introduced Volante, with the re-introduction of burr walnut dash and door cappings. The last time wood was seen in an Aston Martin was in the DB2/4. Also the headlining was changed from cloth to leather – needing around nine hides in total for the car. A popular myth is that AML keep a tenth hide so that the leather could be repaired if it became damaged – nice story, shame that it isn’t actually true.

During seven and a half years of production, a total of 291 cars were made. Many small but important changes were of course made during the build period. Principally, 1980 saw the introduction of the V580 series engine – from a desire to standardise engine parts across the entire AML V8 range. Based on the head from the Lagonda, the V580 had larger and Tuftirided dished valves, polynomial camshaft profiles, smaller cylinder head porting barrel-shaped pistons and a higher compression ratio of 9.3:1 (US cars down to 8.0:1). The engine became quieter with improved economy and better mid-range torque avg free x86 all 2012

VIPER () - Wikipedia

Although always intended to house the new Tadek Marek-designed V8, the DBS first appeared with the 4.0-litre straight six of the concurrently produced DB6. Styled in-house by Bill Towns, the four-seater DBS employed a platform-type chassis with independent suspension all round: wishbone and coil-spring at the front, De Dion with Watts linkage at the rear. Bigger and more luxuriously appointed than the DB6, 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 better 145mph flat-out.

In 1972 the acquisition of Aston Martin by Company Developments brought with it a change of name for the V8-engined cars: out went DBS V8, in came AM V8. This new Series 2 was readily distinguishable by its restyled front that now featured two instead of four headlamps and recalled the looks of the earlier DB six-cylinder cars. Electronic ignition and air conditioning were now standard.

A desirable, automatic transmission model, chassis number 11046 was first delivered in 1973, and has covered a mere 66,300 miles since. Offered with its original instruction booklet, a certificate of authenticity and original brochure; it comes complete with a good history file with a vast array of old MoT’s, bills and receipts.  The car is finished in arguably the best colour combination for a V8- Aston, pewter light green metallic with complementary back hide. One of the most sought after of post-war Aston Martins, this beautiful V8 is worthy of the closest inspection Start Menu for Windows 8
