The Aston Martin DBS was first shown to the public at the 1967 London motor Show. Very much a new generation model the car shared many components of the previous DB6 model. Sporting a new 4 seater body designed by William Towns the car was in fact 38mm shorter and 44mm lower than its predecessor. Weighing in at 1562Kg and with a power output of 325BHP @ 5500rpm from the vantage specification engine. Performance figures were 0-60 MPH7.2 seconds with a top speed in the region of 143 MPH- very respectable indeed for 1967!! Total production was 787. The car offered here is an early production DBS Vantage in LHD and with Manual transmission making it one of the rarest specifications. Originally delivered to Switzerland the car now has Italian registration and documents. With all EU taxes paid. Finished in Ice metallic blue with full black leather interior and chrome wire wheels the car is in an absolutely time warp condition. We have checked the structure of the car and can confirm that there is no evidence of corrosion in the sill areas- a notorious weakness of these cars- having been part of a private collection for many years and always dry stored. The car was the subject of a full 6 page article in the Italian specialist magazine AutoClassiche in September 2005. The car has had only two owners and has a recorded mileage of 51177Km’s approx. 32000 miles from new and must surely be one of the lowest mileage and original examples on the market today. Some light recommissioning of the vehicle will be needed but this should be considered to be no more than a major servicing.
