Rare pre-production Aston DB4 goes on sale in London

North London classic car specialists Hexagon Classics has revealed one of the rarest Aston Martins available, a pre-production 1959 DB4.

The unique Blu Scozia DB4 was the third right-hand drive DB4 to come from Newport Pagnell and was prepared and upgraded by Aston Martin aficionado Richard Williams, as his own car, over a period of 37 years.

Aston Martin registered the unique Blu Scozia DB4 as their London demonstration model before production started on the DB4. It was the third right-hand drive DB4 to come from Newport Pagnell, and still has the registration number of WLC 433 that it had from new.

The car was later taken on by Aston Martin specialist Richard Williams, who ran it as his own car over a period of 37 years, hillclimbing it for much of that time. He upgraded it to run on a Vantage triple sidedraught Weber set-up and a five-speed gearbox, and modifications have been made to the front and rear wheelarches to accommodate larger offset wire wheels.

Paul Michaels, chairman of Hexagon Classics, said: 'This is an unmissable opportunity for someone to own a truly unique classic car. The DB4 is unmistakably iconic, made more so thanks to this particular pre-production model claiming the legendary Richard Williams amongst it previous owners. It has been lovingly restored to immaculate condition and it ready for inspection from our North London showroom now.'

You'll see the DB4 and other top-end classics for sale on the Hexagon Classic website.
