Detailed History
This fourth series DB4 was manufactured in 1961 and had a rather unusual and special start in life as it was acquired new by the chairman of a large car manufacturer in Germany. It was delivered to Wolfsburg in Germany in October 1961 and it is believed the gentleman retained the DB4 for his personal use and competition product assessment until his premature passing in April 1968 at the age of 69 years old, just five months before he was due to retire.

The factory Build Sheet shows the car returned to the factory in May 1962 for a repair to the gearbox over-drive. Also noted is the second owner acquired the car in 1970, so it is expected the car manufacturer retained the car for a couple of years after its owner passed away.

A copy of a Swiss registration document shows the car being registered to a dentist in the city of Bern in May 1993, and after that it was sold by a well-known Swiss Aston Martin specialist in March 2007. The colour is noted on the copy of the sales invoice as Bordeaux Red, but it is unknown when the DB4 was painted this red colour from its original Desert White.

Maintained by the Swiss specialist after sale with a new clutch being fitted in August 2011, Aston Martin Works have subsequently carried out a major service and engine overhaul in early 2018 and a retrim of the interior in the original colour of black Connolly leather.

Returned in recent years to its original Desert White colour, this beautiful Aston Martin DB4 was UK registered in June 2018 and after a thorough mechanical recommissioning by Works it is ready to be enjoyed by a new owner.
