Introduced in January 1986 at the New York International Auto Show, the Aston Martin V8 Series 5 was the successor to the Oscar India models of the early 1980’s. Identifiable by the lack of the bonnet bulge, which was obsolete since a more compact Weber/Marelli fuel-injection system replaced the previous carburetors, 405 Coupe models of the Series 5 were made between 1986 and 1989, and 216 of the Volante version. In 1986, Aston Martin partnered with the Italian coachbuilder Zagato to create an exotic body style to fit to a lighter and shorter chassis. With only 52 examples of the Coupe and 37 of the Volante (Convertible), the Aston Martin V8 Zagato is a valuable classic nowadays. Boasting a limited-slip differential, electric window lifts and heater rear window, the 1986 Aston Martin V8 was a luxurious and comfortable vehicle, even by today’s standards. Burr walnut trim was being fitted for the first time since the 1950’s (with the DB2 and DB4 cars) and the design of the Aston Martin V8 body was very appealing, making it a very refined and desirable classic Aston Martin among collectors and enthusiasts today.
