Owning an Aston V8 in your collection is very special and how these cars drive and make you feel is as good as they look. Described as a fine blend of abilities that emerges as distinctly British. The Tadek Merak designed twin double overhead cam 5.3 V8 is at the heart of the beast and was developed to power the successor to the Aston Martin DB6, the DBS. The original DBS was shown to the press in September 1967, but without its intended V8 engine. This was two years late in arriving and the original DBS's soldiered on with the six cylinder engines until the tougher post 1967 Le Mans evolved V8 first emerged into the production Cars. Christened the DBS-V8 this begot the Series II V8 (note the dropping of DB - now the era post the departure of Sir David Brown in February 1972), and to the Series III of August 1973.
