ASTON MARTIN V-8 by Michael Bowler traces the development and history behind the Aston Martin V8 Engine.

This book takes the reader back through the pages of Aston history to the birth of the V-8 engine and on to 1985.

This story is told from the inside drawing on the factory engineering records to the detail and steady development of the marque, and the author charts the company's fortunes, the ebb and flow of finance and the changing faces of ownership.

Inevitably, it looks at the way that the modern Aston Martin is built, with its brilliant blend of high technology and old-fashioned craftsmanship.

224 pages and 13 Chapters of detailed company history: - Pre-War Days - Enter David Brown - Racing Days - Trendsetter GT - Racing Improves the Breed - More Space Less Speed - Heart of a V-8 - Space and Speed - New Blood - Transfusion - Refinement - Return to Racing - Once more into the breach.
