One of the rarest and most desirable models of the DB range. Built between October 1958 and June 1963, the Aston Martin DB4 was developed through five series. The first had already undergone a number of improvements, including the fitting of heavy-duty bumpers. A front-hinged bonnet, an enlarged sump and bigger brake calipers were the major changes made on the Series II, while the third series featured separate rear lights, two bonnet stays and numerous improvements to the interior. The fourth series was notably better looking with its new grille with seven vertical bars, a shallower bonnet intake and recessed rear lights. Finally the fifth series, of which this car is part of was manufactured between September 1962 and June 1963 and built on a 3.5" longer wheelbase allowing for increased leg room and a larger boot. The fifth series also gained 15" wheels, an electric radiator fan and a DB4GT shaped instrument panel.
This Aston Martin DB4 Series V Vantage has been through an extensive restoration by the foremost experts in the Aston Martin restoration field, culminating in a conversion to DB4GT spec. Entrusted to Aston Martin Heritage Specialists RS Williams, the engine has been converted to 4.7 litre using the correct 12 plug GT cylinder head and twin distributers. The body work was carried out by Bodylines, who notably have extensive knowledge of the original DB4 GT's. The paintwork was completed by specialist Spray-Tech and is presented in Black Pearl Metallic with a tan Connolly leather interior. In total the restoration took four years to complete resulting in a car that is equal to an original Aston Martin DB4 GT. The car is accompanied by a comprehensive history file with factory records and all the restoration documents and correspondence.
