Before the new V8 Vantage, Aston Martin had the V8, and the DBS V8 before that. In 1969, Aston Martin put an alloy 5.3 litre V8 into production. When the engine was retired around 2001, it was producing 600 bhp, and had had a few modifications along the way. Aston Martin V8s are generally grouped into five series, plus the later Virage, the Vantages, the Lagonda, and a few specials, like the LM600. This car is a standard Series 3, built in 1977, LHD, and detuned for the US market. Aston Martin. Since 1914. Power, Beauty, Soul.
