Aston Martin launched the DB4 in 1958 at the London Motor show. It put the company back on track as a leading manufacturer. Throughout the DB4’s production life it was gradually developed, adding some changes (often referred to as series 2, 3, 4 & 5). This series 2 car benefits from opening rear quarter lights, an enlarged sump, uprated oil pump and the same rear light clusters as the DB Mark 3. The 4 seater body was designed by Carrozzeria Touring of Milan, using their ‘Superleggera’ construction method which was a winning combination with Tadek Marek’s 3.7 litre, 6-cylinder twin overhead camshaft engine. It is the epitome of British engineering coupled with exquisite Italian styling designed by Touring of Milan.
