Aston Martin DBS 1967–1972

Aston Martin DBS

The DBS was intended as the successor to the Aston Martin DB6, although the two ran concurrently for three years. Powered by a straight-6 engine, it was produced from 1967 until 1972, eventually being phased out in favour of the DBS V8 and the Aston Martin Vantage.

It was a larger coupé than the DB6, with four full sized seats, but was powered by the same 4.0 L engine as the previous car. Claimed engine output was 282 bhp (210 kW; 286 PS), but a no-cost vantage spec engine option substituted Italian made Weber carburettors for the DBS' original SU units, thereby upping output to an advertised 325 bhp (242 kW; 330 PS).

The DBS was intended to have a more "modern" look than the previous series of Aston models (the DB4 through DB6), and it incorporated a fastback style rear end and squared off front grille, atypical of Astons, but very much then in vogue in automotive design circles of the late sixties. Trademark Aston design features, such as a bonnet scoop, knock off wire wheels, and side air vents with stainless steel brightwork were however retained. The DBS was the last Aston Martin to be built under David Brown's control.

Specifications (1972)
  • Weight: 3,760 lb (1,706 kg)
  • Engine: 4.0L DOHC straight-6
  • Power: 283 bhp (211 kW; 287 PS) at 5500 rpm
  • Torque: 390.5 N·m (288.0 lb·ft) at 3850 rpm

I thought I had better shots, but I evidently don't, so next time I'm there I'll make sure I get better shots for you. Again apologies about the quality.

are you sure that those are V8s? According the Aston Martin info that Dumaz provided, they all came with alloy wheels, as the wire wheels could not deal with the torque of the V8

Nope not sure . If they're not, they're in the right section regardless...

I do believe it's still there, I'll get better pictures next time I'm there, which might even be today.

This is the most American looking European car ever. Proportions, overhangs, the front/grill...
