The Aston Martin DB4 Convertible is beyond any doubt a pretty car. Designed with superleggera framework by Charozzeria Touring in Milan, this classic model is not only a good looking car but also quite lightweight for a  Convertible of this size. What makes the car even more special is the fact that Aston Martin only ever build 70 of the DB4 Convertible.

Aston Martin (Website) offered the car with a regular PVC top or the quite expensive and due to that rare hard-top option. When it comes to the engine things can get a little confusing. The car came with either the regular power-unit from the DB4 or the Vantage engine. And in only one case it was delivered with a twin-plug GT engine. To keep things as simple as possible, the overview below features only the regular DB4 engine. Also, performance numbers for the Vantage unit only slightly exceed those of the regular one, in regards to acceleration and top speed whilst the hard facts (engine, measurements,…) mostly stay the same.
