When the DB4 went on the market in 1958 it marked a turning point in Aston Martins design. Company trademarks such as the modified Atom frames and the W.O. Bentley designed engine were now things of the past as the new car was the first Aston Martin to wear the Superleggera bodywork of Carrozzeria Touring. The unique method of construction used aluminum-magnesium panels over steel tubing, giving the DB4 a rigid, yet undeniably light body. The new engine a 3.7 litre straight-six with twin overhead camshafts was the brainchild of Polish engineer Tadek Marek, who prior to coming to Aston Martin, enjoyed success with General Motors and FIAT. Mareks design was obviously similar to Jaguars legendary XK unit; however, the DB4s engine utilizes all-aluminum construction, resulting in a lighter, more powerful engine than the ones that preceded it. The result was a stunning fastback design that perfectly married the lines of Italy, while being undeniably British. This 240 horsepower Gentlemens Sports Car was the fastest that Britain had seen to date.
The DB4 was manufactured between October 1958 and June 1963, during which the styling changed significantly enough that today Aston Martin enthusiasts refer to the DB4 as being produced in five different series. The Series II automobiles are quite unique for being the first to feature a front hinged bonnet, larger brakes, as well as various minor mechanical improvements for better performance over the Series 1 cars. The Series II DB4 is also unique as it is the last to feature the one piece cathedral style tail lamps, the tall bonnet scoop and the original grille design characteristics considered by many to be iconic to the design of the classic DB4. Only 351 Series II cars would be constructed and given their unique styling cues, they have become commonplace among some of the finest auto collections across the globe.
