1985 Aston Martin V8

Launched in 1978, the Aston Martin V8 was referred to as the Oscar India model, which cleverly refers to the car’s October Introduction. Being the Series 4 model of the Aston Martin V8, the Oscar India ran until 1985 before the Lagonda and a limited Zagato edition took over. Launched at the Birmingham International Motor Show, the 1985 Aston Martin V8 boasted a new spoiler integrated into the boot lid tail and a revised bonnet power bulge. With electric windows, wood-embellished fascia, leather headlining, re-styled center console and improved air conditioning, the interior of the V8 offered a lot of comfort and refinement. A special version of the Oscar India was made to meet the requirements of the American market, fitted with a “Torqueflite” three-speed automatic gearbox for most examples but also available with the ZF Five-speed manual transmission. Just 352 Oscar India Coupe models were built, making this car a very rare Aston Martin classic. The 1985 Aston Martin V8 was also made available in a Convertible version called Volante (Aston Martin designation for Convertible) and could be ordered with the special Vantage engine.
