The Aston Martin AM – V8 followed the DBS and was produced from 1969 to 1989. As was tradition, the cars were entirely hand built, each requiring 1200 man-hours to finish. Clientele were seeking V-8 cylinder powered cars after the introduction of the highly successful Mustang but Aston Martin didn’t have an engine ready for that kind of power. In 1967 the company released the DBS with the intention to offer this with e newly designed V-8 engine. The engine was not ready on time and instead Aston Martin continued to deliver the first 2 years with a straight-six Vantage engine from the DB6. When the V-8 was ready only few DBS V8 were produced and was soon followed up by the newly styled AM V8. The Aston Martin V8 became the company’s mainstream car for nearly two decades but went into retirement once the Virage debuted in 1989.
