Classic Car- 1986 Aston Martin V8

Brett Weinstein/Wikipedia

Sometimes some great vintage cars are made in other places than the U.S. The Aston Martin V8 was manufactured in the United Kingdom, and it’s still a classic.

Aston Martin’s customers were clamouring for an eight-cylinder car for years, so Aston Martin designed a larger 2-door saloon for V8 applications. The engine was not ready, however, so in 1967 the company released the DBS with the I6 Vantage engine from the DB6. Two years later, Tadek Marek’s V8 was ready, and Aston released the DBS V8. With the demise of the straight-6 Vantage in 1973, the DBS V8, now restyled and called simply the Aston Martin V8, became the company’s mainstream car for two decades.”

The fuel-injected Series 5 cars were introduced in 1986 at the New York International Auto Show. The compact Weber/Marelli system no longer needed the space of the previous carburettors, so the bonnet bulge was virtually eliminated. 405 Series 5 cars were built before production ceased in 1989.”
