Aston Martin DBSV8 Restoration Begins

We are pleased to announce our latest restoration, Aston Martin DBSV8 barn find. Currently, in a sorry state, our skilled technicians will be carrying out a full sympathetic restoration trying to retain as much original paint, trim, and bodywork. 

This Aston Martin V8 DBS has recently entered our workshop. The CMC team will be carrying out a sympathetic restoration on the car to bring it back to the original condition. We shall attend to all mechanical repairs for safety-critical and long term reliability on the car as well as sympathetically restoring the body and trim work. We aim to retain as much of the original paint, trim and bodywork as possible. 

V8 DBS's were in production from 1969-72, they were the last car to be produced under the watchful eye of Sir David Brown and came out of the Newport Pagnell Factory. This particular car has a manual transmission of which only 120 were ever built and is RHD. Notably, the V8's gained 113kg in weight compared to the previous 6 cylinder model, due to its V8 engine, new and improved ZF gearbox, ventilated brake discs and fatter tyres.
