Aston Martin DB4
prior restauration, but correct in all details
- Vehicle Overview
- Features & Options
In 1947 Daniel Brown, a successful manufacturer of agricultural machinery, took a test drive with the prototype Aston Martin Atom. He enjoyed the experience so thoroughly that he immediately bought the entire company. The weak point of the product line was the four-cylinder engine, a pre-war construction. David Brown swiftly addressed the problem with the acquisition of the company Lagonda and its famous six-cylinder engine with double camshafts. This engine was developed by none other than W.O. Bentley. Thus the success story of the Aston Martin DB2 started. When the DB4 coupé was released in 1958, it was referred to as one of the most beautiful cars in the world. The interaction of the superleggera-style body with the chassis, the modern front axle and the aluminum engine made the DB4 a classic Grand Tourismo. In the novel, the DB4 is the official car of James Bond. In the first movie that role was given to the newer DB5.
Although our Aston Martin DB4 is an older restoration, it is accurate in every detail. Very slight signs of use invite you to actually drive this classic car.
