Oscar India – V580, formally known by the AMOC as Series 4

Production of the V8 had been halted when Company Developments called in the receivers in late 1974 and did not recommence until 1976. One of the first jobs of the new owners was to thoroughly revise the V8 culminating in the car, code named ‘Oscar India’ or in old AMOC speak, the Series 4. The Oscar India was unveiled at the Birmingham International Motor Show in October 1978 (Oscar India = October Introduction, from the  phonetic alphabet). Certainly, the car had become more refined and luxurious, automatic transmission was virtually standard – thus AML began calling it ‘The V8 saloon’.

The Aston Martin V8 Oscar India for sale at DD Classics is the later V580 spec, finished in a beautiful Salisbury Blue metallic with BBS wheels. This is an incredible opportunity for any discerning classic car collector as our car has had just one former owner and previously registered at what is known as “Billionaires Row” in London. Completely unmolested and in original condition, it is one of the best available on the market today.

Inside the Oscar India is in fabulous condition, with Magnolia hide, stunning burr walnut dash and door trim. The last time wood was seen in an Aston Martin was in the DB2/4.

Also accompanying the car is a history file which includes numerous invoices, original book pack with original warranty card and the stamped service book. A mechanical recommission was carried out by Chiltern Aston Martin Heritage centre at the cost of £16,670 in February 2016, since then the car has only travelled 521 miles.

Our car benefits from the Torqueflite three speed automatic, having only completed 10,400 miles from new it is a fabulous daily driver. Being 1 of just 291 Aston Martin Oscar India’s manufactured it is also exceptionally rare, it is also the first AMV8 with revised chrome/white/green wings badge, making it a must have for any classic car/ Aston Martin collector.

About Aston Martin
Aston Martin, one of Britain's best known sports car manufacturer, was founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford.

During its chequered financial history the company has had numerous owners taking over the company, Sir David Brown just to mention one.

Between the wars Bertelli was both technical director and designer of all new Aston Martins, thus known as "Bertelli cars". These included the 1½-litre "T-type", "International", "Le Mans", "MKII" its racing version, the "Ulster", and the 2-litre 15/98 and its race going derivative, the "Speed Model".

During the war years the company produced aircraft components.

In 1947, Aston was purchased and thus saved by Sir David Brown. The company also acquired Lagonda the same year for its 2.6-litre W. O. Bentley-designed engine. Both companies shared resources and workshops creating the iconic "DB" series of cars. In 1950, they presented the DB2, followed by the DB2/4 in 1953, the DB2/4 MkII in 1955, the DB Mark III in 1957.

DB4 with its strong Italian flavor and construction was introduced in 1958. The lightweight superleggera (tube-frame) body was designed by Carrozzeria Touring in Milan. Although the design and construction techniques were Italian, the DB4 was the first Aston to be built at the company's Newport Pagnell works in Buckinghamshire, England. The six-cylinder engines of these cars from 1954 up to 1965 were designed by Tadek Marek. Despite initial problems with cracking engine blocks DB4 was a success that really established the make together with its later derivates DB5, of James Bond Goldfinger fame, and more civilized DB6 Grand Tourer.

With the all new model DBS in the late 60's the company went to eight cylinder configuration when it was modified to Aston Martin v8 – a sort of Gentleman's muscle car.
