A one-off V8 Aston Martin DB7 will be auctioned at Brooklands on Saturday September 1st.
The car, which was commissioned by a member of the Saudi Arabian Royal family, features a 6350cc V8 Vantage engine in place of what would usually be a straight-six or V12 engine.
The race-tuned engine puts out 452 bhp, way up on ever what the V12 version could manage. Most of the internals- brakes, suspension and steering- have also been uprated to cope with the power increase.
It’s expected to attract offers of between £70,000 and £80,000 at auction.
