Default Pic : Aston Martin DBS in Mumbai

Check it out. It didn't look that well maintained, but it sounded like hell had been let loose. Saw it near CST station. I couldn't take a better pic as I was driving. Cheers!

Not a DB5 but a DBS (early '70s model); still it's good to see the old thing on the road.

My heart more or less skipped a beat when I read the thread title. One out of the 898 beauties in Mumbai (!!)...I was shocked. However, the fact that it's a DBS doesn't make it any less shocking...very good find as there were only 787 (!) ever built. Not as special as the DB5, but cool enough for our Indian roads.

You can tell from the front
Twin headlights lights + chrome grille denote 6 cylinder, single lights + black grill means V8

Yes Ajmat you are right about front part but even from rear you can make it out whether its a 6 cylinder or a V8.
This is a V8.
The straight 6 has louvers behind the 'C' Pillar but when the V8 was introduced the the louvers were missing near 'C' pillar and instead were placed under the rear window!!

The Aston is actually a 4 Litre inline 6 with the wide angle twin cam "D" Type head. 1971/2 is the approximate year. 280-282 bhp is the approx. output. The car is not in the condition she deserves to be in and sadly isnt driven like she should be either.. oh well....

To me just the looks and lines of a Gallardo can can put most cars on road to shame.
And F430 cannot put a Gallardo to shame, its just your individual taste and linking.
Both are almost equally competent in their own right.
