Dark Blue metallic with Blue leather interior and Blue carpets, Fully Restored, Vantage Specifications, 5-speed manual.

This DBS has been the subject of a painstaking, no expense spared restoration. It had 14k original miles prior to the restoration, all numbers match and the engine has been fully rebuilt and uprated to Vantage specifications by an ex works engine builder in the UK. There are a few mods to the car's original spec, these are are mostly to enhance driveability and modern day traffic other than this, this DBS is as original as you can get.

The mods are as follows: Engine uprated to Vantage spec. (originally on triple SU's), new pistons, water pump, all bearings, correct 'C' type cams, new sump, new Weber 45DCOE9 carbuerttors, new valves, ported head with correct compression and new prestretched chains. Electronic ignition, Add'l vacuum take off at front inlet manifold to help with vac loss under some conditions, Aluminium petrol tank, Koni shocks, Oil coolers relocated under front bumper a la later DBSV8 to increase efficiency, Modern radiator core (original tanks retained for authentic "look", Electric fan to replace viscous coupled fan, Heat reflective hood pad, 7x15 stainless steel wires with 3 eared OEM spinners, 215/70 WR15 Pirelli P4000's, Stainless Langford exhaust, Orange "Euro" front and rear turn signal lenses, DBSV8 leather wrapped steering wheel (from the original "Persuaders" car PPP 6H aka BS1!) and Electrical system conversion to negative earth.

All receipts and photos from the restoration are included, since restoration this DBS has been stored in an Airchamber. The only things needed to make this DBS complete are a factory tool roll and although the car came equipped with ac from the factory, the previous owner didn't want it because he felt that it ruined the look of the engine compartment. Anticipating a future owners wants and needs, the ac evaporator and expansion valve along with a new much larger condenser have been installed, the electrical switch is installed and the wiring is run up to the space where the compressor goes, thus it is just a matter of fitting a compressor and plumbing it. The compressor mounting bracket is also included with the car.

Absolutely spectacular.
