The 1960 Aston Martin DB4 was meant to be the replacement for the DB Mark II Model, but the design proved to be even more impressive than was initially intended. This would be the first car to come out of the new Aston Martin factory located in Newport Pagnell, England. As a result of being manufactured in the new state-of-the-art facility, many new and innovative production processes were utilized in its production along with a great many new advanced gadgets and technological components, especially for the 1960’s!
Everything on this 1960 Aston Martin DB4 was completely brand new, from the pressed steel chassis design to the twin cam, inline V-6 with 250 BHP and 3,670 CC. The engine used triple Weber carbs with a 4-speed manual DB transmission. The independent front suspension and four-wheel discs definitely put this sporty automobile in a class all its own.
With an engine design similar to the Jaguar XK, it was further modified and upgraded with its aluminum block and head. Clearly, Aston Martin was going for a new generation of automobile that was designed with only the highest mechanical and aesthetic standards. The car did go through some minor refurbishments back in 1996, but the impressive lines of this magnificent machine will always be a real head turner.
