1962 Aston Martin DB4

 aston martin db db  The 1962 Aston Martin DB4 continued the legacy of the previous DB4 models that were introduced in 1958. While it maintained the classic Italian-designed body and powerful six-cylinder engine, it also came with some new additions and updates for that year.

One of the most significant changes in the 1962 DB4 was the option to choose a new five-speed manual gearbox that offered a closer ratio spread than the previous four-speed manual. This transmission upgrade improved the car’s acceleration and overall responsiveness.

Under the hood, the 1962 DB4 had a 3.7-liter DOHC straight-six engine that produced 240 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. The car could be paired with either the new five-speed manual transmission or a three-speed automatic transmission with a torque converter lockup feature.

Inside the car, the DB4 had luxurious leather upholstery, electric windows, and a steering wheel with a wood-rimmed design. It also included some advanced features for that time, such as a tachometer, oil temperature gauge, and an optional radio.
