What? – A 1961 Aston Martin DB4 Series II finished in RSW green with tan leather interior. The car which wowed crowds at the 1958 London Motorshow and spawned the chassis for the DB4 GT Zagato and Lagonda Rapide. This particular example has endured a colourful history, passed amongst family and peers, enduring masses of storage time and only covering 59,700 miles in the process.
Why? – Italian design and British engineering, at the time this was the height of luxury. Not to mention the luxurious technology and finish, synonymous with the Aston Martin brand. This car was a game changer, and this is the best example money can buy.
You would certainly need a lot of money to buy it, however future owners can be safe in the knowledge that this DB4 will last the test of time. After undergoing an intensive restoration process at the turn of the millenium, this particular car came first in the Elite Class at the 2004 Aston Martin Owners Club Concours at Woburn Abbey.
Odometer reading? – An incredible 59,700 miles. An average of 1,126 miles per annum.
The Bad Bits? – Trying to find bad bits should be as simple as finding a needle in a haystack. We’d hope so for the price!
How Much? – Dig deep. It’s £495,000. Maybe it’s time to sell the wife and kids into slavery.
Got a Link? – Certainly.
