1989 Aston Martin V8 Fuel Injection EFI
Vin Number SCFCV81S1KTR12653
Registration: F869OYR
Finished in unmarked gleaming black paintwork with a flawless cream interior piped in black. The car sits on BBS Alloys & is in impeccable condition thoughout. A massive service history & maintenance record comes with the car showing it has been properly looked after. The car has covered a scant 40,375 miles from new.
Announced in April 1972, the AM V8 is an extensively modified version of the DBS VS which was announced in September 1969. Externally, the grill was entirely new, no longer sweeping across the complete front but now tailored between the head lamps reminiscent of the earlier six cylinder models such as the DB3S. The engine, was by then the well tried and tested all alloy V8 designed by Tadek Marek that had made it's first appearance in January 1967 at the Racing Car Show in London and raced by Lola in their Type 70 Mk III GT.
1978 was an exciting year for Aston Martin and their owners, in June the Volante was unveiled and a few months later the V8 series IV or "Oscar India" = October Introduction, became available. The revised specification of the series IV included a change in shock absorber settings, leather head lining, burr walnut dash board and door cappings, discreet integral rear spoiler, carburettor bonnet bulge with the dummy air intake now closed at the front and extensive improvements to the standard air conditioning.
The final and most desirable version of the V8 Saloon, was first seen at the New York Motor Show on 26th January 1986. Benefiting from rolling production improvements enjoyed by its predecessor such as modified air conditioning and the adoption of 8" BBS allow road wheels, the Oscar India series V now fed the 585 series V8 engine (revised in 1985 to included improved piston and cam profiles) by Weber-Marelli fuel injection delivering 305 B.H.P in a more refined and precise manner.
Aston Martin records show that this is a rare model with just 43 right hand drive and 17 left hand drive models built.
Vehicle History:
First registered in 1989, the car was sold to its second owner just over a year later in March 1990. Then in May 1991, it moved to the stewardship of a Mr Irvine who acquired and maintained stewardship of the car through two employers, in whose name the car was registered before finally landing in his own name. The current onwer purchased the car for his collection where it has resided in a heated garage alongside assorted Rolls Royce & Bentley motor cars.
The car is presented in outstanding order and a review of the history of the car reveals why - thorough service and maintenance through Works Service during the 1990's it had thorough attention to any mechanical or body requirements and under the previous owner, irrespective of its nominal mileage, the car has not only had a programme of regular maintenance but also a thorough mechanical, body, paint and underbody overhaul be the Aston Martin specialists, Aston Engineering.
In consequence, the car is presented in outstanding condition and is a pleasure to drive.
Summary:
There are lovely cars brought to market where their restoration has been a necessity brought about by historical neglect.
This car is very different - long term ownership by two Aston Martin enthusiasts has meant that the car has been consistently brought up to the highest standards. Under her current stewardship she has been taken to the next level - restored, enhanced and subject to maintenance and constant improvement.
An Aston Martin V8 Series V has always been recognised in the market for its rarity and its rightful position as the perfect evocation of the V8 - an everyday, useable classic. This car is the ultimate Series V.
