The 1976 Aston Martin V8 was a luxury sports car produced by British car manufacturer Aston Martin Lagonda Limited. It was the fourth iteration of the V8 series and was known for its powerful engine, sleek design, and luxurious interior.
The car was powered by a 5.3-liter V8 engine that produced 320 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, which allowed it to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.0 seconds and reach a top speed of 150 mph. It was paired with a 3-speed automatic transmission, although a 5-speed manual transmission was also available.
The exterior design of the car featured classic Aston Martin styling, with a long hood, short rear deck, and sloping roofline. The car was also equipped with a front air dam and a rear spoiler to improve aerodynamics and stability at high speeds.
The interior of the car was designed with luxury in mind, featuring leather seats, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, and a full range of power accessories, including windows, locks, and seats. The car also featured air conditioning, a stereo system, and a full array of gauges to keep the driver informed.
The 1976 Aston Martin V8 was produced in limited numbers, with only 405 units built. It was sold primarily in the United States and was the last V8 model to be produced before the introduction of the V8 Vantage in 1977. Today, it is highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts alike for its combination of luxury, performance, and classic British style.
