Unveiled at Blenheim Palace in September 1967 after being designed by William Towns, the Aston Martin DBS was initially only intended for limited production. However, its success encouraged the brand to extended its production until 1972. Originally, the engineers based the design of the car with the thought of using a new V8 engine, but the production of the new engine took more time than expected. Instead, the DBS ended up being powered by the Tadek Marek DOHC six-cylinder engine. In standard tune the unit offered 283hp, but with the Vantage option the horsepower was increased to 325. The body of the new DBS was also larger and adopted a more modern look, differentiating it from the previous Aston Martin models. The squared-off front grill and fastback style rear are distinctive features of the new model. If you’re the owner of a 1969 Aston Martin DBS and are thinking about selling, these are some of the unique characteristics that potential buyers will want to know about.
