The 1989 Aston Martin V8 was very similar to the previous year’s model, with only a few minor changes. It was powered by the same 5.3-liter V8 engine that produced 310 horsepower and 345 lb-ft of torque, and was paired with either a five-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmission.
The exterior of the 1989 V8 also remained largely unchanged, featuring the same classic design with clean lines and a low, sleek profile. The signature Aston Martin grille and circular headlights were still prominent features of the car.
However, one notable change for the 1989 model was the addition of anti-lock brakes, which greatly improved the car’s safety and handling. The V8 also received some updates to the interior, with new options for leather and wood trim.
Like its predecessor, the 1989 V8 was produced in limited numbers, with only 54 units built that year. It remained a popular car among collectors and enthusiasts, and is still highly sought after today.
