Auction Block: 8,000-Mile 1961 Aston Martin DB4 Series III

May 4, 2021

Over the course of the DB4’s production life, Aston Martin rolled out five distinct ‘series’ variants in an effort to update the platform with both visual as well as performance improvements. And while many of the modifications were subtle — some window frames here, a barred grill there — that’s not to say that they were altogether insignificant. Rather, such design changes would pave the way for a slew of iconic DB successors.

Pictured before you is a stunning example of a 1961 Aston Martin DB4 Series III (one of just 165 built) with only 8,000 miles on the odometer. Originally purchased Bahrain’s first Prime Minister, it was subsequently gifted to the President of the Bahrain Petroleum Company before entering his daughter’s care. Done up in ‘Fiesta Red’ with a set of whitewall tires and a White Gold Connolly leather interior, it’s certainly an eye-catcher all-around. However, apart from a few tasteful modifications — such as a Powr-Lok limited-slip differential and a modern Motorola AM radio — the DB4 otherwise remains true to factory spec. And it even comes with its numbers-matching 240hp 3.7L inline-six. If you want to snatch it up for yourself, you can bid at the listing below, where the current bid is set at $150k.

Purchase: $150,000+
