1967-1973 ASTON MARTIN DBS specifications


A new stylist – William Towns – meant a completely new look for Aston, with the DBS shifting focus from Italy to America with its arresting muscle-car stance. The four-passenger DBS was designed for a V8, but Aston’s eight-pot wasn’t ready in time so the car used the DB6’s 4-litre engine with an uprated Vantage option. However, all that extra weight knocked performance back; a DBS could offer only the same kind of speeds as a DB4. Although the V8 model was available from 1969, the six-cylinder continued until 1973 as the entry-level Aston.
