Description

This is a 1970 DBS VANTAGE 2-door saloon,#5575/LC# one of the only 71 units equipped with the 4.0L
“Marek” 6 cylinders engine (325hp- 242kw) #4534# with the optional ZF 5-speed and with the exclusive 3 Weber carburetors of the VANTAGE version.

This car was commissioned by CORVER S.A. (Aston Martin Spain´s importer at that time located in Barcelona) to be the car for the 1970 Barcelona´s
Motor Show (Salón Internacional del Automóvil de Barcelona) in the Montjuich pavilions. For this event the car was sent from the Newport Pagnell
factory an especially well-configured vehicle with attractive options and with two special exhibition plates and display.

The paint was “Mink” and the interior upholstery was provided in medium blue Connolly leather and carpets in Wilton wool dark blue with the headliner
cloth in grey .The options list included the ZF 5 speed transmission, Air Conditioned, Power steering, Fiamm horns, lap belts, Smiths KMH Odometer,
FIAMM horns, Chromed wire wheels and Avon Radial tires.

This car can be described like a real “Survivor” car , very low mileage, unmolested and never restored DBS with 2 real owners (legally 3). The well
preserved original interior with patina gives an authenticity differential with some other freshly restored DBS. Actually the car has 36.700 confirmed and
with certificated kms .The non-original “Hot red” paint is still in very good condition (after 40 years) but it´s a medium quality job non in the
today´s car collectors quality standards. We´ll be happy to provide an extra cost paint job estimate if desired.
