Richards of England are proud to offer this factory 6 cylinder Aston Martin DBS F.I, still running on its AE Brico electronic Fuel Injection system. Given that this DBS is just 1 of 15 said to have been produced, we have made every effort to keep its originality, with the car being returned to its rare colour combination of Azzurro Blue (just 30) with Connolly Vaumol VM3282 (dark blue leather). Distinctive features such as the red enamelled F.I wing vent badges have also been retained.
The only deviations from its original build has been made with driving experience in mind, this includes switching to the preferred 5 speed ZF manual gearbox, instead of its original automatic. The latter has been kept and will be delivered with the sale of this car. The ECU has also been replaced with a modern equivalent, along with the injectors, due to the original being problematic. Hours of dyno testing and setting up sees the systems performing and running superbly, allowing the AE Brico electronic Fuel Injection system to perform as originally intended, offering superb performance and torque. The finishing touches have now been completed on this painstaking restoration.
A rich history folder containing over 200 documents accompanies the motor car. Regular MOT and servicing invoices show that the car has been well looked after throughout its life. The build sheet shows the car as being first delivered to Lazenby Garage, Lincolnshire, the car remaining local to the county ever since. Even more interesting is that this is just one of the two 6 cylinder DBS F.I’s remaining in the world (still running on the system), with the other example also in Lincolnshire. This very special piece of history has created a stir amongst Aston Martin enthusiasts and various editorial publishers have been in contact. Throughout its 6 owner history the car has undergone multiple repairs designed to keep the car road worthy. However, a full comprehensive restoration was finally commissioned by the client and meticulously carried out by Richards of England. in 2019.
