DBR4

(1959)

Publicly unveiled in April 1959, the Aston Martin Grand Prix Car, DBR4, had been under development for the previous four years. In its debut race at Silverstone, one month later, one car came in second and also broke the lap record; it was to be the cars best result. It became less and less competitive against the new breed of rear-engined cars. In total, four DBR4's were built, all but one still survive.

The photographs here are of the last car, DBR4/4, photographed at Coys festival, Silverstone, 1998 and 1999.
