Clearly visible is the completely redesigned dashboard and instrument cluster, glove compartment and centre console. This was then covered in hide as opposed to the vynide material that covered the dashboards in the regular production cars. Also fitted was a centre arm rest with a hinged lid and chrome-plated ash tray. The door panels were somewhat simplified with a completely new interior door handle and the parcel shelf was also updated. The seats were also redesigned with a clear ‘V’ shape stitched pattern instead of the more usual pleats. This ‘V’ shape was adopted for the seats that were used on the DB6 later in the year.
The car was stored for many years in mainland Europe but it underwent a substantial restoration in the 2000’s involving the upgrade of the engine to 4.2 litre ‘Vantage’ spec with triple Weber carburettors.
The only other time that Ogle had an input into Aston Martin was with the DBSV8 based Sotheby Special.
