The Aston Martin V8 is a grand tourer produced in the United Kingdom between 1969 and 1989. Like all traditional Aston Martin cars, the DBS V8 was entirely hand-built, with each car requiring 1,200 hours to complete. It was sold as a 2-door coupe and convertible and only 4,021 examples were produced in total.

Aston Martin wanted to replace the DB6, but as the engine was not yet ready, the company released the DBS with the I6 engine from the DB6 in 1967. Two years later, the engine was ready and Aston Martin released the DBS V8. The car was powered by a 5.3-litre V8 engine with 315 hp (235 kW). It could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.1 seconds and reach a speed of 242 km/h. It was available with a 5-speed manual or 3-speed automatic transmission. It was replaced by the Aston Martin Virage.
