ASTON MARTIN V8 SALOON

4-seater 2-door saloon.

After takeover by Company Developments, DBS V8 was renamed V8, with two-headlamp nose, this style being made ever since. Injection engine continued to mid-1973, then four-Weber engine instead. 160mph-plus top speeds, fuel consumption around 13mph. Many detailed changes (mainly interior equipment), and more (unspecified) power in long career. By today's standards, a real dinosaur.
