The iconic DBS V8 first appeared in 1973, following on from the DBS 6. The Tadek Marek designed 5340cc, V8 engine initially featured fuel injection, but was later offered with four twin-choke Weber carburetors and produced around 310bhp. The final versions of this car before the "Oscar India", were known as Series 3 cars (with just 967 being produced) and the chassis number of this car confirms that it is one of the very last Series 3s produced at Newport Pagnell and features a factory engine upgrade to 'S' specification. Interestingly this car has been in the same family ownership for over 20 years and comes with an absolutely comprehensive history file, including all MoT certificates back to the early 1980s and all bills from Aston Engineering in Derby who have maintained this car continuously for the last registered owner during his 20-year tenure. It is finished in the original colour combination of Buckingham Green with Fawn leather upholstery. These cars are now regarded as highly collectable, and this particular automatic version is an outstanding and highly useable example in excellent restored condition all round.
