Apparently RSW did conversions with these where they bored out the engine from 5.3L to 7.0L. Now, I thought the car already had a substantial amount of power for the 1970s, but the 7.0L conversion made about 510 horsepower and 530 LB-FT, a hell of an upgrade from the standard 390 horsepower. That's more than a Lamborghini Countach QV5000, or even the later Diablo. I'm thinking this car with the RSW 7.0L conversion could do like 186-190 mph, though I don't know if anyone would be brave enough to do that.

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage is my favorite Aston Martin, it looks like a British muscle car. A V8 Vantage in British Racing Green with RSW’s 7.0L V8 conversion would be a dream.

When I first heard of it and saw a picture I thought aston modified the mustang (remember i'm 13) so I wasn't born when it came out . And It's the way Aston does cars , big , comfortable, and sporty it makes people fall in love with their cars

The car that some consider England's first super car.

Reminds me of a mustang, only better looking.
