In September 1962 the DB4 ‘Series 5’ was introduced. This final iteration of the DB4 was principally released to provide more space and leg-room for rear passengers. The body was lengthened and the roof raised a little and to keep the overall height of the car the same, the diameter of the wheels was reduced from 16 to 15 inches.
Many series 5 cars also featured the ‘Special Series’ (SS) or ‘Vantage’ engine featuring triple SU carbs.
In total, only 50 Series 5 saloons were built during a 10 month period between September 1962 and June 1963 making it one of the rarest and most desirable of the DB range.
In fact the original James Bond car used for ‘Goldfinger’ was a DB4 Series 5 as they look virtually identical to the DB5 which was not quite completed at the time.
This fantastic and highly original Series 5 has a fastidious and detailed history from new.
First registered 12th February 1963 to Mr Gordon Summerfield, Middleton-on-Sea, Sussex, the car has passed through only 6 owners in total amongst whom include Mr Victor Gauntlett, the petrochemical entrepreneur and previous owner of Aston Martin.
RS Williams known and maintained for over 20 years, this is an important and highly sought after example.
