In 1974, the Aston Martin V8 Series 3 was being produced. The Series 3 uses four twin-choke (two-barrel) Weber carburetors instead of the Bosch fuel injection system, in order to pass the new California emission standards, which were made stricter at the time. A taller hood scoop was used to fit the different shape of the engine, after the modifications were made. The performances varied slightly compared to the previous versions and the Series 3 was said to produce 310 hp and reach 60 mph in 5.7 with the manual transmission. The contemporary design of the AM V8 is very recognizable, with the four-inline headlights (later designs used single headlights) and a large front air intake.

If you look closely, some earlier models of the V8 have louvers cut into the panel situated under the rear windshield, whereas the Series 3 have a small lip at the bottom of this panel instead, just before of the prominent point of the trunk cover.
