Sold for $346,000 at 2021 Bonhams : Amelia Island Auction.
This Aston Martin DB4 Series 1 was the 114th of 149 examples built and is one of only 73 left-hand-drive examples to roll out of the factory works at Newport Pagnell. An intellectual property lawyer named René Plasseraud was the vehicle's original owner who acquired it through French Aston Martin dealer Garage Mirabeau in November of 1959. It is believed that the car was built in December of 1959 and finished in Peony Red over a Beige Connolly leather interior with optional chromed wire wheels and Radiomobile radio.

This Aston Martin spent most of its life in France and was given a comprehensive mechanical restoration by Garage Lamy of Villejuif, France in 2001 with receipts totaling nearly 100,000 Francs. The car resided with the French owner who had commissioned the restoration for a further seven years before being acquired by the current owner in June of 2007.

This Aston Martin has had only three owners from new, passing from Mr. Plasseraud to its second French owner, Christophe Cadoux, in the summer of 1963.
