Sleek aluminum body
the db4 was introduced with an all-new body and a new six-cylinder engine with hemispherical combustion chambers. With three instead of two carburetors and a higher compression ratio, this became the optional 266hp ss (special series) or vantage version of the engine. The beautiful body designed by carozzeria touring consisted of aluminum-alloy panels over a latticework array of small welded tubes on a pressed-steel platform frame. Other features included leather upholstery, a hood air scoop, dual exhausts, and wraparound windshield.
sloping headlight covers
the convertibles belonged to the last two db4 series, which had a new grille distinguished by seven vertical bars. Some had the restyled front end of the vantage bodystyle, featuring sloping
headlight covers. The last ones also had a slightly higher roof and a length expanded 3 12 in. To 15 ft. For added leg and luggage room. Thirty-two of the 70 had the ss engine.
The touring-designed aston martin db4 looked especially beautiful in convertible form. Only 70 of these speedsters were made.
