Affordable luxury: 1973 Aston Martin V8 Coupé


Update, September 19: We have checked the link to the ad but it’s not there anymore. We saw this ad yesterday and probably, seen the asking price, this car has gone quickly. The new owner made a great deal.

1973 was the second year of production of the AM V8, an evolution of the DBS, which was officially presented in april 1972: this car should be eqipped with Bosch fuel injection and probably only 288 units of the first series were made.


The 5,3 liters V8 produces 315 h.p. and can push this beast from 0 to 60 m.p.h. in less than six seconds; however, this is not a sports car but a great, fast tourer.


This particular car is said to have benefitted of a rebuild of engine, interiors and body by qualified professionals; however the seller says few about it: what we can see is that this Aston looks good, both inside and outside and with a stunning color combo. We find also that the asking price, especially for an lhd car, is way more than fair. Find it for sale at €35,000 (today $46,500) here in Saint-Saëns, France.
