"Following in the classic tradition of close-coupled sports saloons, the 3.7-litre DB4 Aston Martin carries orthodox modernity to its highest levels. A luxurious two-seat salon which car carry four adults when necessary, it recorded almost 140mph as a two-way mean speed over the measured mile, yet we were able to record acceleration figures from 10mph in the same gear ratio." - The Motor, 1960
This gorgeous 1961 Aston Martin DB4 Series 2 Sports Saloon heads to auction shortly and one very lucky person is about to call this thing theirs. For the mere mortals who won't be in attendance with a checkbook ready, at least we can ogle at the beauty through the computer screen.
