There is a reason why the Aston Martin V8 appears in not just one, but two Bond movies. It combines the powerful looks of a Mustang with subtle English elegancy. As the name gives away, this Aston Martin is powered by a V8 and was designed as a GT car.

While the DBS V8 engine still came with four carburetors, the new motor featured a mechanic fuel-injection system that caused enough trouble for Aston Martin (Website) to again replace it with four twin choke Weber carburetors in 1973. The Car, known as AMV8 produced well over 300 horsepower and launched the car from 0 to 100 km/h (60 mph) in under 8 seconds.

Movie appearances

The car was first shown in The Living Daylights with Timothy Dalton, where a total of 11 vehicles were used in the course of just one movie. After that it just recently reappeared in Daniel Craig’s last Bond movie, No Time To Die.
