The Aston Martin V8 Series 4 was unveiled at the Birmingham International Motor Show in October 1978 as the ’Oscar-India’ (denoting its October Introduction). 1978 was also the launch of a Convertible version, traditionally named the Volante. More engine modifications were made in 1980 and the 580 series engine was introduced with improved performances. The Oscar India featured a better air conditioning system, central locking, full leather upholstery, and walnut door capping for extra refinement. The 1981 Aston Martin V8 was made available in 5-speed manual or automatic, both standard. Specific design cues such as a closed bonnet bulge and chrome bumpers can easily identify the Oscar India. Additionally, the car could be ordered with the Vantage engine – as all other Aston models – which gave significantly improved power and performance to drivers.

If you’re looking at a 1981 Aston Martin V8 – or any classic Aston Martin vehicles for sale – there are a couple of buyer’s tips you might find useful. Although the AMV8 is one of the most affordable classic Aston Martin models on the market nowadays, it’s a very special vehicle and the history of each model is unique. It took a long time for the engineers to develop the perfect V8 engine unit and test it on the road and various tracks like the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1967. The result was a rugged and efficient engine that engineers kept perfecting throughout the production years of the Aston Martin V8. An interesting fact is that every engine from 1978 carries a brass plate with the name of the engine builder, as a symbol of pride. Most collectors and enthusiasts know to look for this plate as a just one of the many signals of authenticity.
