The 1961 Aston Martin DB4 FIA Appendix K: A Classic Car with a Racing Heritage

The Aston Martin DB4 FIA Appendix K is a race car that was created by Aston Martin in 1961. It was made to participate in the Appendix K racing division of the FIA. With strong brakes, excellent power delivery, and predictable handling, the car has been continuously improved and is enjoyable to race.

There are now very few DB4 FIA Appendix K race cars left in competition as the cost of Aston Martin Road cars has skyrocketed. The Historic Technical Passport for this vehicle was just extended through 2031.

A 3.7-liter straight-six engine that produced 240 bhp at 5500 rpm propelled the Aston Martin DB4. For its day, the vehicle was swift. The DB4's maximum speed was 140 mph, and its 0-60 time was 9.3 seconds.

Additionally, the DB4 was the first mass-produced vehicle with a 0 to 100 to 0 mph time of less than 30 seconds. This 1961 Aston Martin DB4 FIA Appendix K Race Car, which was converted to competition standard in the late 1990s, will be on display at The Goodwood Members' Meeting on April 16, 2023.

The AMOC "Overall Champion" in 2001 and 2004, this Aston Martin has been in the current possession since 2008.  With numerous top and first-place finishes, it competed in the Pre'63 GT Series, Masters Gentleman Drivers, AMOC, and Spa 6 Hours.
