Vehicle description1977 Aston Martin V8 Series III Sports Saloon According to copies of Aston Martin's factory build records, this elegant V8 Saloon was hand built at Aston Martin's Newport Pagnell plant during the winter of 1976. The car was equipped with a left-hand-drive steering arrangement and the 3-speed automatic transmission. It was finished in Cornish Gold over a Black leather interior, Black carpeting and a Grey headliner. It was distributed through Aston Martin Lagonda, Inc to where it was sold to its first owner, Dr. William S. Reiter, an orthopedic surgeon, of Los Angeles, California, on January 5, 1977. At some point, the car was repainted Peoney Red, a desirable 5-speed manual transmission was fitted. Additionally, a set of 5-spoke alloy rims replaced the original wheels. Runs and drives but would benefit from servicing prior to use. Aston Martin had always intended the DBS to house its new V8 engine, but production difficulties meant that the car first appeared with the DB6's 4.0-liter six. Bigger and more luxuriously appointed than the DB6, the heavyweight DBS disappointed some by virtue of its slightly reduced performance, but there were no complaints when the V8 finally arrived in 1969. With an estimated 315bhp available from its 5,340cc four-cam engine, the DBS V8 could reach 100mph in under 14 seconds, running on to a top speed of 160mph, a staggering performance in those days and one which fully justified the claim that it was the fastest production car in the world.
