The de­fin­i­tive As­ton shape was born with the DB4, the work of Ital­ian de­sign house Tour­ing, its ‘su­per­leg­gera’ alu­minium body­work be­ing wrapped around a steel plat­form. The DB4 also in­tro­duced a new, Tadek Marek-de­signed all-al­loy twin-cam straight-six, orig­i­nally in 240bhp 3.7-litre form. In all there were five se­ries of DB4S, each adding sub­tle re­fine­ments to the orig­i­nal for­mula. Van­tage ver­sions had 266bhp, and the short-wheel­base track­bi­ased GT a for­mi­da­ble 302bhp. To­tal pro­duc­tion: 1210.
