The 1973 Aston Martin V8, also known as the Series 3 or “New V8,” was introduced as an update to the previous V8 models. The most significant change was the switch from Weber carburetors to fuel injection, which improved fuel economy and reduced emissions. The engine remained the same 5.3-liter V8, but power output was slightly reduced to 310 horsepower.
Other updates included new front and rear bumpers, larger brake discs, and revised suspension settings for improved ride comfort. Inside, the dashboard was redesigned with a more modern layout and the seats were updated with adjustable headrests.
The V8 was available in both coupe and convertible versions, with the latter featuring a power-operated top. Production of the Series 3 V8 continued until 1978, when it was replaced by the V8 Vantage model.
