    Description:

    The DB 4 was perhaps the finest compromise which Aston Martin ever achieved between exceptionally high-quality and high-performance, exceptionally lavish finishing and yet properly contained overall size and weight. It was the first AM with Carrozzeria Touring’s ‘Superleggera’ bodywork, in which light alloy panels were fixed to a framework of light-gauge steel tubes welded to a platform chassis. The result was a car whose sleek lines were described as ‘unmistakably Italian and yet… equally unmistakably Aston Martin’.

    The DB 4 was developed through five series. The final (5th) Series, manufactured between September 1962 and June 1963, was built on a 3½” longer wheelbase and was fitted with 15″ wheels, an electric radiator fan and the DB 4 GT-type instrument panel. One of the most notable developments was the “Special Series” SS (or Vantage) engine that became available as a factory build option. The SS incorporated a 9.0:1 compression ratio, larger valves and triple SU HD8 carburettors, producing 266bhp at 5,750rpm.

    Our car is one of only 14 right-hand drive Series V DB 4 Convertibles produced with the SS engine and is one of the rarest Aston Martin’s of all time. Supplied new on the 1st July 1963 by C Williams to John Marsh Esq of Wolverhampton, Staffordshire. Factory records show that the car has had only 4 previous owners. In the last years this car was part of an important Aston Martin Collection.

    Combining Aston Martin’s traditional virtues of style and performance with the joys of open-air motoring, the DB 4 Convertible Series V Vantage is one of the most sought after and highly prized motorcars available for sale today. With the exception of the Zagato, the DB 4 Series V Convertible is the rarest Aston Martin road car of the David Brown era.

    Engine:
    6-cylinder inline engine (SS specification), 266 hp (fact. spec.)
