The 1961 Aston Martin DB4 Series II represents the last model year prior to the transition to the Series III and IV models. First released in January 1960, the Aston Martin DB4 Series II would see production through April 1961. The Series II examples are known for offering many significant improvements over the original Series I examples, as early customers had in effect thoroughly tested the DB4. Many of the modifications were under the hood. Visually, one of the only ways to differentiate a Series I from a Series II is by the rear quarter lights that were made with flat glass rather than curved. Also, a Series II DB4, when displayed with the bonnet up, can be seen hinging from the front. Upgraded front brake calipers were also added. In total, approximately 349 Series II Aston Martin DB4 examples were produced prior to the introduction of the Series III in April 1961. Overall, 1,185 examples of the DB4 range would be produced throughout the years.
