The Appeal

This 1971 Aston Martin DBS V8 represents the end of an era, being one of the last grand coupes produced under David Brown's legendary time at the company. The Aston Martin DBS V8 is renowned for its fastback styling, that powerful V8 and - of course - its sumptuous attention to luxury and detail. Just 4,021 were built, and the car became a symbol of popular culture - be it with James Bond or The Persuaders! - and may well go down as one of the most impressive British cars of the 70s.

This particular example has been treated to a comprehensive restoration in 2011-2012, where its bodywork, interior and mechanics were all meticulously revitalised. Further enhancing its appeal is the completely renewed leather interior, offering both comfort and luxury in equal measure.
