Aston Martin DB4 Driving Experiences
The Aston Martin DB4 is their earliest example of a ‘Grand Tourer’ vehicle, in production during the 50s and 60s. It was also a brand new design for Aston Martin featuring the 3.7L engine that went on to form the basis of the DB5 and Lagonda, setting new design and performance standards that have remained an integral part of the British supercar production firm’s success. At TrackDays, we offer Aston Martin DB4 driving experiences at some fantastic venues and locations nationwide.

It’s fair to say that the standard of Aston Martin models we know today have their roots with the DB4. This ‘superleggera’ tube frame model, designed in Milan, was a phenomenon when it was launched at the London Motor Show in 1958, and was the first to roll off the production line at their Newport Pagnell works in Buckinghamshire that very same year, all the way through to 1963.
It is powered by a 3.7 litre engine, the very same engine which went on to power the DB4’s successors, the DB5 and Lagonda, packing 240 bhp. It was also the most advanced Aston Martin engine for the time, with a cylinder and block head cast of aluminium alloy, with a maximum speed of just under 140 mph, and the ability to cruise from 0 - 60 mph in 8 seconds.
Cool Facts About the Aston Martin DB4
Several variations of the DB4 were produced in the years following its launch. In 1961, the DB4 Convertible model was launched, of which 1110 were made, making them one of the rarest classic British supercars around.
They also unveiled a special high performance version for motorsports, called the Aston Martin DB4 GT, in 1959. Sir Stirling Moss took bronze honours, finishing third place when he drove one of these on its racing debut at Goodwood in Easter 1961.
