Aston Martin DB4, DB4GT
David Brown conjured up an all new car for the DB4 launched at the 1958 Paris Salon. Harold Beech engineered a new platform chassis, and the body was designed by Federico Formenti at Carrozzeria Touring using there Superleggera system. Power was provided by a new dohc 6-cylinder 3670cc engine by Tadek Marek which was said to give 240bhp on twin SUs. In 1960 the Series II cars were available with optional oil cooler below the bumper, opening rear side windows, and front-hinged bonnet. From April 1961 Series III cars were produced with triple round rear lamps in place of the Humber 'Cathedral' lamp units. Series IV cars from September 1961 have a new vertically barred grille and smaller bonnet scoop. Series V cars from September 1962 were lengthed beyond the wheelbase and the roof raised; they also gained reversing lamps. The shorter and lighter DB4GT was available from 1960 as a road legal racing car. There was also a 266bhp DB4 Vantage from late 1961. A convertible DB4 was available from the launch of the Series IV cars, styled by Aston Martin and given the longer body later shared with the Series V cars.

The faired in headlamps were characteristic of the DB4 GT but were later taken on by the DB5 and DB6.

Using thinner Aluminium panels over the Superleggera chassis, along with a shortened wheelbase, approximately 100lbs weight was saved. An even lighter version could be ordered for track use. Twin fuel fillers fed into a single tank
