The 1989 model-year was the last year of production for the long-running Aston Martin V8. Many updates and revisions were made and introduced since the first launch in 1969. The rugged V8 engine made all models very enjoyable driver’s cars, especially in the last years. The Series 5 version succeeded the already well-improved Oscar India model in 1986. Boasting a limited-slip differential and a new Weber Marelli fuel injection system to replace the carburetors, the engine of the 1989 Aston Martin V8 was quite powerful. With the Vantage option, the power and the torque were increased by 40% and 10% respectively, enabling the car to reach a top speed of 170 mph. In addition to this impressive performance, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage could do 0 to 60 in 5.2 seconds, making it the UK’s first supercar and also the fastest 4-seater vehicle in the world at the time.
