1981 Aston Martin V8

Unveiled at the Birmingham International Motor Show in October 1978, the Aston Martin V8 Series 4 was known as the Oscar-India model (“Oscar India” being representative of the car’s October Introduction). A Convertible version was also launched in 1978, traditionally called Volante. The “580 series” engine was introduced in 1980, featuring improvements resulting in increased performance. The Oscar India offered a better air conditioning system, full leather upholstery, central locking and walnut door capping for more refinement. The 1981 Aston Martin V8 could be ordered with a 5-speed manual or an automatic gearbox, both standard. Specific design cues can be attributed to the Oscar India, such as the closed bonnet bulge and chrome bumpers. A Vantage version of the Aston Martin V8 was also made available at the time, as with all other Aston models, improving the power and performance of the car significantly over the standard version.
