Some specifics:

• This ‘DB’ carried sublime coachwork, designed by Touring, handcrafted at Tickford works in Newport Pagnell.
• The successor to the DB2 started as a working prototype in 1954.
• The near four-seater DB4 led to Aston producing a shorter chassis DB4GT
• Triple-Weber-carburetor equipped, with a twin-plug head.
• In 1964, the final Series V form morphed the DB4 into a DB5. It had 4.0-litre engine and generally equipped with a five-speed ZF gearbox.
• The 1966 DB6 Mk 2 was probably the finest version of the DB4/5/6 series.
• Late 60s/early 70s the company moved towards high-performance V8s.
