The DB4 instantly drew attention as it was revealed at the Paris Motor Show, with its sharp styling twinned with an advanced 3.7-litre straight-six engine designed by Tadek Marek, whose name became synonymous with Aston Martin’s standards for engineering and performance excellence. The powertrain continued in various guises throughout other Aston Martin models until 1972. Equally important to the performance credentials of the DB4 was its Superleggera (“superlight”) body design from Carrozzeria Touring of Milan, Italy, which provided both a lightweight and strong framework of small-diameter tubes dressed clad in aluminium panels. Furthermore, four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes were introduced, allowing the DB4 to claim the record for the first production car capable of reaching 100 mph and returning to a standstill in under 30 seconds.

First registered on 20 May 1960, this Aston Martin DB4 is chassis number DB4/303/R. It was the 52nd of just 349 Series II DB4s produced. It left the Newport Pagnell factory finished in Wedgewood Blue, with Off White leather trim, and the logbook records that it was delivered new to Alfresco Garage in Bradford. On 5 May 1964, the Aston was registered in the name of Peter Brewer in Cheshire. Brewer owned the ex-Pat Fairfield ERA R4A at that time, and apparently used the DB4 to tow the pre-war voiturette single-seater to race meetings!

A Mr John Nicol of Macclesfield purchased the car in November 1965 and it remained in his family collection until 2006, when it was sold once more with just 57,000 miles showing on the odometer. The engine had been rebuilt to ‘big valve specification’ by Headshop in Warrington less than 1000 miles before it was sold, having previously been rebuilt by Oselli in 1997.

The car was sold again in late 2012, and the decision was made by the new owner to treat the DB4 to a complete restoration, which was carried out between 2013 and 2015. Parts were sourced from Aston Martin Dorset, while the re-chroming, bodywork and respray were carried out by XK Engineering in Coventry. Mike Thomas did the trim work, and the car’s history file documents each stage of the project in painstaking detail. There is also a CD containing photographs taken during the restoration.

Presented in its original shade of Wedgewood Blue, with a Blue leather interior, this Aston Martin DB4 is in immaculate concours-ready condition. As well as all paperwork relating to the restoration, its history file includes the original log book and build sheet, plus early servicing work carried out between 1960 and 1963, and MOT certificates dating back to 1967 verifying its mileage.
