You can own the Bahrain Prime Minister's Aston Martin DB4 Series III
This is what we call a royal Aston!
Launched in 1958 as the replacement for the Aston Martin DB Mark III, the DB4 was characterized by its more dynamic and muscular styling and larger dimensions. Introduced in 1961, the DB4 Series III received some mechanical upgrades and new taillights.
A car that belonged to the first Prime Minister of Bahrain, Sheikh Khalifa bin Salman Al-Khalifa, is now for sale on the Bring a Trailer website. Delivered to the diplomat on July 25, 1961, the model in question sports a bright red paint job with white sidewall tyres.
Other features include polished bumpers with overriders, a pair of fog lamps, an air intake on the bonnet, fender mounted mirrors and 'Khalifa' lettering on the boot lid. The interior boasts white leather upholstery extending across the door panels. The front seats have three-point belts and the rear seats have lap belts.
Equipment includes a heater, a Motorola 808 AM radio, a Smith clock, a spare wheel and four disc brakes. Under the bonnet, the Aston Martin DB4 Series III hides a 3.7-litre in-line six developing 240 PS. It is mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox.
