Brought to the open market for the first time since its initial sale in 1970, Richards of England are proud to present this factory 6 cylinder Aston Martin DBS FI, completely restored and running on the AE Brico electronic Fuel Injection system. Given that this DBS is just 1 of 15 made, we have made every effort to keep its originality, with the car being returned to its rare colour combination of Azzurro Blue (just 30) with Connolly Vaumol VM3282 (dark blue leather). Distinctive features such as the red FI wing vent badges have also been retained.
The only deviations from its original build has been made with driving experience in mind, this includes switching to the preferred 5 speed ZF manual gearbox, instead of its original automatic. The latter has been kept and will be delivered with the sale of this car. The ECU has also been replaced with a modern equivalent, along with the injectors, due to the original being problematic. Hours of dyno testing and setting up sees the systems performing and running superbly, allowing the AE Brico electronic Fuel Injection system to perform as originally intended, offering superb performance and torque.
A rich history folder containing over 200 documents accompanies the motor car. Regular MOT and servicing invoices show that the car has been well looked after throughout it’s life. The build sheet shows the car as being first delivered to Lazenby Garage, Lincolnshire, the car remaining local to the county ever since. Even more interesting is that this is just one of the two 6 cylinder DBS F.I’s remaining in the world (still running on the system), with the other example also in Lincolnshire. This very special piece of history has created a stir amongst Aston Martin enthusiasts and various editorial publishers have been in contact. Throughout its 6 owner history the car has undergone multiple repairs and restorations designed to keep the car road worthy. However, the motor car deserved more and has now undergone a full restoration, meticulously carried out by ourselves.
This DBS F.I is now a true spectacle and one of the finest examples of DBS currently presented to the market. Making this a fantastic investment opportunity to own a rare and collectable motor car. The vehicle is something that can be preserved for years to come, or driven as the grand touring car it was designed to be.
Comprehensive road testing and detailing to the highest standard will take place prior to delivery of this motor car. Please contact us to arrange a viewing. Finance options available. Nationwide “covered in” transportation, a comprehensive hard cover presentation book detailing the cars restoration, complete with a years warranty, are all included as part of our service.
