Aston Martin DBR4

The Aston Martin DBR4 was a new sports car first shown at the London Motor Show in 1958. It was designed by general manager John Wyer, chassis designer Harold Beach, and engine designer Tadek Marek and was powered by Tadek Marek's 3.7 litre, six-cylinder twin overhead camshaft, all alloy engine. The car was constructed using the Superleggera system by which alloy panels are fixed to a tubular frame built onto the platform chassis. It was capable of 0-100-0 mph in under 30 sec. and was the first production car to reach the 100 mph mark in 21 seconds, providing a staggering performance specification. A four-seater convertible version of the DB4 was announced at the London Motor Show in 1961 and production of all varieties ran until June 1963. By this time there were five distinct series of the DB4 and at the time of new release, the saloon cost £ 3,976 and the convertible cost £ 4,194. The specs of the DBR4 are as follows: Engine: all dohc I-6, 3670 cc, 240 bhp @ 5500 rpm, 240 lbs-ft @4250 rpm; Vantage: 266 bhp @5750 rpm; Transmission: 4-speed manual with optional overdrive or optional Borg-Warner 3-speed automatic; Suspension: Front: upper-and-lower A-arms, coil springs, anti-roll bar; Rear: live axle, Watt linkage, trailing links, coil springs; Brakes: Servo assisted front/rear discs; Length: 14'9"; Width: 5'6"; Height: 4'4"; Wheelbase: 8'4"; Weight: 1308kg; Top Speed: 140 mph; 0-60 mph: 9 sec.
