The current owner, only the fifth in the cars lifetime, acquired the car in Boston Massachusetts from the Secretary of the East Coast USA AMOC and brought the car back to France in 2003. Sharing a garage with other classics, the car has enjoyed outings for pleasure and on classic rallies. Then in 2014, the owner commissioned Swiss Aston Martin specialist and Heritage dealer, Roos Engineering, to undertake a year long restoration to close to its original condition.

The interior remains as completely original, while the chassis and body were thoroughly refurbished and the engine rebuilt. Roos provided a comprehensive photographic record of the restoration together with a detailed invoice for the engine rebuild.

However, the owner has reached a point in life where he feels that it is time to take a more leisurely approach and has asked Byron International to offer this wonderful car to the market. But the market has not been kind.

Prior to delivering the car to our storage facility previously, the owner elected to enjoy one last fling in his restored car and participated in a Classic Car Rally in the Dolomites. After the event, it was returned to Roos Engineering for a complete check over and, 1000km engine check. The details of that work has been provided together with the Roos invoice demonstrating the willingness of the owner to invest in the best right up to the point of sale.

But the vagaries of the market persuaded the owner that Astons are there to be enjoyed and most recently the owner has been back on the road enjoying his DB4 but brought the car back to the UK to test the market at a revised and lower price. Whilst he still seeks a buyer, he still wants to improve the car and, if the summer comes round without a new owner, he will be back on the road so he commissioned Vantage Engineering to undertake some important improvements to the car - he felt that the longer drives needed to be more comfortable and asked them to overhaul the gearbox and differential. On the latter that meant a new crown wheel & pinion and revised final drive ratio. At the same time, they counselled that such a lovely car would benefit from some work on the under bonnet area and the photos give some idea of the detail that has been applied. All designed for his pleasure but a hell of a benefit to a purchaser - £20,000+ of improvements and a realistic price.

They have made a very good car, a great one!

The Touring Superleggera designed Aston Martins are still considered by many to be Newport Pagnells finest and, as the first example, the Aston Martin DB4 is considered by many to be the purest form of this automotive classic.

DB4/818/L is a superlative example with a clear and recorded ownership history, the car has been cherished by successive owners. Not least the current owner who has had the car lovingly restored to originality and to the very highest standards.

This left hand drive Series IV is rare, highly sought after and, most importantly, in original specification. Roos have ensured that the drive is superb and, even on country roads, there is barely a rattle. It is a car for the collector, the purist and someone who enjoys Superleggera as it was designed.
