1961-1963 ASTON MARTIN DB4 drophead specifications

1961-1963 ASTON MARTIN DB4 drophead specifications Classic and Performance Car

While DB4 saloons are special enough, even more prized are the scarce and beautiful drophead coupés. Production didn’t begin until 1961, three years after the enclosed cars arrived. Just 70 emerged, of which 38 had the standard 240bhp engine and 32 were endowed with the 266bhp of the Vantage engine. In addition to the hood, a hard-top was available; when fitted, it made the British car look very like a Maserati 3500 coupé from behind. It’s not surprising that Touring of Milan was responsible for the look of both vehicles...
