Fastback Coupe
Coachwork: Touring
Chassis #: DB4/527/R
Engine #: 370/538
This right-hand drive DB4 includes many of the advances introduced on the Series 2 version, including a front-hinged bonnet radiator blind, bigger front brake calipers and enlarged sump.

The car was sold through agents Century Motors, to W.J.F. Tillyard of Manchester Street, London. At the time, it was finished in dark red livery and with a black Connolly leather interior. Mr Tillyard gave his newly purchased DB4 a personal license plate of T 999. A few years later, the car was sold to E.E. Lazarus of London EC1. Another owner was A.E. Saunders.

In the 1990s, the car was sent from the United Kingdom to Japan where it would remain for the next two decades. During its stay in Japan, the car was restored cosmetically. In 2006, the car was purchased at Bonhams auction.

In 2010, the car was offered for sale at the Exceptional Motorcars and Automobilia auction presented by Bonhams. The car was estimated to sell for $200,000 - $250,000 but failed to find a buyer willing to satisfy its reserve. The car would leave unsold.
