Detailed History

This fourth series DB4 had a rather unusual and special start in life as it was sold new by the Aston Martin Factory to the chairman of Volkswagen, Professor Heinrich Nordhoff. Manufactured in 1961 it was delivered to Wolfsburg in Germany in October of that year. It is believed Professor Nordhoff had the DB4 for his personal use and retained it until his premature passing in April 1968.

The factory Build Sheet shows the car returned to the Newport Pagnell in May 1962 for a repair to the gearbox over-drive. Also noted is the second owner acquired the car in 1970, so it is expected Volkswagen retained the car for a couple of years after Professor Nordhoff passed away.

A copy of a Swiss registration document shows the car being registered to a dentist in the city of Bern in May 1993, and after that it was sold by a well-known Swiss Aston Martin specialist in March 2007. The colour is noted on the copy of the sales invoice as “Bordeaux Red”, but it is unknown when the DB4 was painted this red colour from its original Desert White.

Maintained by the Swiss specialist after sale with a new clutch being fitted in August 2011, Aston Martin Works have subsequently carried out a major service and engine overhaul in early 2018 and a retrim of the interior in the original colour of black Connolly leather.

Returned in recent years to its original Desert White colour, this beautiful Aston Martin DB4 was UK registered in June 2018 and after a thorough mechanical recommissioning by Aston Martin Works it is ready to be enjoyed by a new owner.
