Coming directly from its French owner who acquired this lovely Aston Martin through our brokerage in 2010, it is a pleasure to offer this car to the market again. Taken originally from long term storage and acquired initially for an interesting registration, she soon found favour with a Sussex based Aston enthusiast in her own right.
Initially recommissioned by Bill Goodall of Newlands Motors, the French owner maintained contact with Newlands for parts to complement local maintenance.
The "four headlight" DBS has become a highly valued and evocative symbol of its era especially this earlier version with the "gills" on the C post and in this manual form is one of the most sought after versions – appreciated as both collectible and usable – this beautiful car is both collectible and very usable.
