Magnificent DBS V8 series 2, 10398 was delivered new on July 1st 1972, it is one of the rare 288 series 2 built.
Our beautiful car has only 70,500 miles on its odometer and has been pampered for many years by a Swedish collector. Its original color, Ascot Grey, matches perfectly with its original leather interior in a superb Dark Blue line. The 5.4-liter twin camshaft V8 engine with Bosch injection develops 320 horsepower and was a real Supercar at the time.
In the eyes of the purists, this Aston Martin is the most refined DBS with chrome bumpers without bumpers and especially the mythical grille.
This elegant car will be delivered with an approved appraisal of value as well as its invoice file and birth certificate.
Featured in the television series “Yours Truly”, the Aston Martin DBS V8 was the vehicle driven by Sir Roger Moore and also appeared in the sixth James BOND movie “Her Majesty’s Secret Service”.
Called to replace the DB6 in 1967 and designed by the Milanese coachbuilder Touring, the same one who imagined the lines of the DB6, this fastback coupe is pure class, a sign of elegance and refinement, it was equipped with a 6-cylinder engine when it came out before receiving a V8, in 1970. A true craftsman’s vehicle, built by hand, the new model was more expensive than the rival Ferrari Daytona, although with 12 cylinders.
For the record, this was one of the last models supervised by Sir David Brown. DBS stands for David Brown Sport.
Completely revised and air-conditioned, it will delight its occupants in long bucolic drives between castles and gourmet restaurants.
