The 1960 Aston Martin DB4 was largely similar to the 1959 model, with few changes made for that year. However, there were a few notable updates and additions made to the DB4 for the 1960 model year:
- The optional Borg-Warner three-speed automatic transmission was upgraded to include a torque converter lockup feature for improved efficiency.
- The DB4 was now offered with a limited-slip differential as an option, which improved traction and handling in challenging driving conditions.
- A new body style was introduced: the DB4 Series II saloon, which featured a longer roofline and increased headroom in the rear seats.
One notable addition was the introduction of a new body style: the DB4 Series II saloon. This model featured a longer roofline and increased headroom in the rear seats, making it more comfortable for passengers. The Series II also had a redesigned grille and taillights, as well as wider wheels and tires for improved handling.
Another update for the 1960 DB4 was the availability of a limited-slip differential as an option. This feature improved traction and handling in challenging driving conditions, making the car more responsive and agile on the road.
Under the hood, the 1960 DB4 was powered by a 3.7-liter DOHC straight-six engine that produced 240 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. The car was available with either a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive or a three-speed automatic transmission with a torque converter lockup feature.
Inside, the DB4 was fitted with luxurious leather upholstery, electric windows, and a wood-rimmed steering wheel. The car also featured a range of advanced features for the time, including a tachometer, oil temperature gauge, and an optional radio.
