RM Sotheby’s annual London sale, set for September 7 this year, will showcase some six decades of Aston Martin accomplishments while featuring a trio of exquisite DB4 variants. That group will be led by DB4GT/0126/R, a matching-numbers right-hand-drive car manufactured in 1960 as the competition version of the DB4 (above, Tim Scott photo courtesy of RM Sotheby’s). One of just 45 RHD cars built, and one of only three fitted with rear seats, this silver beauty is considered one of the most original DB4GTs available, with no evidence of any accidents or repairs.
It will be joined by a 1963 Aston Martin DB4 Series V Convertible, one of just 70 built and regarded as one of the most exclusive Aston Martin road cars ever made. Chassis number DB4C/1102/R is a late-production version, finished in platinum over red leather, and with the desirable, overdrive gearbox. With decades of known history, this car has been immaculately restored and preserved by well-known enthusiasts to concours-standard condition
Completing the threesome is an immaculate 1960 DB4 Series II Coupé, chassis number DB4/490/L, with just three owners from new and accompanied by a comprehensive history file, including original UK logbook, correct jack, hammer and tool roll. This DB4 is one of just 125 left-hand-drive cars with its original matching numbers engine and a four-speed manual gearbox. It’s finished in its factory colors of Goodwood Green with red Connolly leather interior.
