One of the Aston Martins I'd guess, DB4 maybe with triple Skinner Union carbs.

Could this car have been used in a certain TV series by a soon to be James Bond I wonder? Is the colour Bahama Yellow rather than Banana Yellow? Hmm :?:

Yes thats right Mick, bit of a slip on the colour from me!

I'll post it up in all its glory. There are some superb photos of it on the sales particulars from Bonhams May 2014, when it was sold. Lovely looking car in my opinion.

Totally agree there Neil, for me possibly the best of all the Astons after the iconic DB5. I quite enjoyed the series too, just a pity TC wasn't given an Interceptor to drive!! :-D
