These MKII cars in our view are the best of the series running from the first DB4 which were unveiled to the world in 1959. Over years the series benefitted from continuous technical development in the case of the series 4 there were 5 variation before the model changed with the DB5. Then came the MKI DB6 with its refreshed body design.  A total of just 235 MKII's were built in both left and right hand drive making this the rarest of the entire series. In comparison there were 935 DB5 saloons built. Not only are the MKII's the technical pinnacle but today represents superb value for money.

On the button road ready awaiting its next adventure across the Alps!
