A rare opportunity to create the classic Aston Martin of your dreams.
This iconic DB4 Series II has a very interesting history having been originally imported into Germany by Aston Martin and Jaguar distributor, Peter Lindner.
Famous for his racing exploits in his Aston Martin DB4 GT and Jaguar Lindner Nocker Low Drag Lightweight E Type, Lindner was tragically killed whilst racing the Jaguar at the Autodrome de Montlhéry near Paris in 1964.
Dismantled for minor repair an incredible 46 years ago, circumstances meant that it was never rebuilt, frozen in time - until now!
Complete with the original German registration document this factory Left Hand Drive Aston can of course be converted to RHD as part of the restoration process.
Celebrating 100 years of Aston Martin and 25 years of Aston Workshop each model in the Aston Bespoke Range offers the very latest enhancements and upgrades, transforming them into the ultimate version of these iconic classics.
The following is a brief description of the restoration process, a more detailed explanation is available on our New Aston Bespoke Website - click HERE
Body & Paint
The bodywork for this particular Bespoke DB4 has been completely renewed, this means that the time needed to complete the restoration will be significantly reduced and it also means that it is now ready for the next stage, paint.
We use the latest computer based technology, skill and experience, together with an enormous selection of paint codes to offer the widest range of colours imaginable.
Dealing with the chassis correctly is paramount to a successful bespoke project.
The original chassis & floorpan of this DB4 have been completely re-furbished. The chassis was stripped bare and shot blasted to reveal any areas of corrosion. The corroded sections were then cut out and replaced. All internal sections were then treated with weld-through primer.
The result is a chassis that has been re-furbished to the highest standards, ready for the new body and the next stage of restoration.
At Aston Workshop we can produce engines which far surpass original reliability and performance.
With the benefit of modern materials, machining techniques and oils we regularly build high performance engines to the highest specification, a perfect example of what can be achieved when starting from scratch, using modern upgraded parts and appropriate modifications.
We encourage our Bespoke owners to stipulate final engine specifications after careful consultation with our industry leading experts.
Modern, adjustable gas filled dampers, progressive rate springs and modern radial tyres have transformed the handling characteristics of modern cars. These dampers are now available to classic car owners too and are fitted as standard on all Bespoke models.
We are also working towards being able to offer in-car adjustable dampers on Bespoke models.
There is also the question of wheel & tyre choice. At the end of the day, this is a personal decision, and while we will recommend certain options that we know work well, the choice inevitably must be down to the owner.
Thanks to our vast experience and some clever designs we have developed transmission enhancements that not only offer increased performance and safety but are also thankfully very discreet.
On the Bespoke DB4 we can offer the following:
4 speed auto
Standard 4 speed manual
New Tremec T-5 manual
Toyota Supra 5 speed
We are also developing a new multi-speed electronic gearbox as an option for our Bespoke models, availability to be announced.
The axle of the Bespoke DB4 will be upgraded to a 4HA unit with a choice of ratios and optional Limited Slip Differential. The casings of these units can be either the standard black finish or 'concours' gloss black upon request.
When building a car such as the Bespoke DB4, it's absolutely essential that the brakes be upgraded or enhanced to the very best specification possible in order to match its all-round improvement in performance.
Option 1 Girling Upgrade
Option 2 A.P. Racing
All Bespoke DB4 models are fitted with new wiring looms, switches, connections, relays, fuse systems etc. to ensure reliability of all electrical components.
Every model will also include a high output alternator to improve reliability and capacity of the charging system.
The Daytona electric window kit is fitted as standard to improve performance and reliability.
The Bespoke DB4 has the following electrical upgrade options available:
Electric power assisted steering
Thatcham 1 alarm system
Remote central locking
Intermittent wiper/washer system
A variety of ICE options with I-pod connection and Sat Nav
Hazard warning light system
HID headlight upgrades
Electronic and heated memory seats
Please contact our workshop manager to discuss model specifics.
The choice of exhaust system can dramatically alter the character of your tailor-made car. With this in mind, we are able to offer two different options for your Bespoke DB5.
Option 1 Original specification replacement
Option 2 Stainless Steel
Optional, ceramic 'Zircotec' coating providing exceptional heat insulation.
The interior of your DB4 will be completely re-trimmed to your specification. This includes a wide range of materials in a myriad of colour combinations. Modified instrumentation is also available as are optional chrome switches and centre armrest/glovebox.
Sound insulation upgrades are standard on all bespoke models allowing for longer journey lengths in greater comfort.
Exterior trim includes the fitting of new glass as a matter of course, plus all chrome areas prepared and re-chromed or fully replaced where necessary.
Our 'Tropicalisation' upgrade was specifically developed to deal with the hottest and most humid climates on the planet, but is of course of benefit to any owner of a bespoke model, anywhere in the world.
Your Bespoke DB4 will be upgraded to include a twin zone, front and rear air-conditioning system and total heat insulation of the cabin area using a specially designed woven insulation fabric hidden in the floor, roof and doors. We will also coat the exhaust manifolds and front pipes with a ceramic 'Zircotec' coating for ultimate heat insulation.
With the number of people able to correctly set up and maintain carburettors diminishing by the day, Aston Workshop has pioneered the fitment of Electronic Fuel Injection to the DB4, 5 and 6 cars. To this end, we have tested several cars running on this system over the past couple of years.
Our technical advisers will be more than happy to discuss the various options at the time of commissioning your project.
NOTE: As the name suggests, this is a tailor-made restoration to the client's exact specification, the initial purchase price of £299,950 is for the DB4 "as is" and final price will very much depend on final specification. As a guide, we would estimate somewhere in the region of £275,000 should be budgeted for. This further sum will be payable in increments during the restoration period.
