1973 Aston Martin V8

In 1973, the Aston Martin V8 became the mainstream car for the company, as the production of the 6-cylinder Aston Martin DBS would be stopped. Designed by the talented Tadek Marek, the V8 engine had a capacity of 5.3 Liters and featured a Bosch mechanical fuel injection system. The horsepower is estimated to 320, enabling the car to do a 0 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds, with a top speed of 160mph. With those figures, the 1973 Aston Martin V8 was the fastest 4-seat grand touring vehicle on the market in the early 1970’s. Although based on the same chassis and similar body style than the DBS, the new V8 can be distinguished by a larger front air dam and 15’’ GKN light alloy wheels. These are just a few of the many wonderful characteristics that may have attracted you to the 1973 Aston Martin V8, which you should share with potential buyers to help them understand the fun of Aston Martin ownership.

Also referred to as the AM V8, the models built from 1972 to July 1973 feature twin quartz headlights and a mesh grille. The V8 was hand-built at the time (as most of the classic cars of the era) and the labor is estimated at 1,200 hours per unit. This meant each example was unique, and each car could be slightly different from another, depending the teams working on it.
