    Good Morning and Merry Chriistmas,
    Could you please tell me the exact year and version of the DB4 pictured above; the one with SUA 50 stenciled on the bonnet. I am very interested in this particular version as I like the slightly less “bubble” look of the front of the car. It is not necessary for me to know who the owner is, that can remain confidential, just the exact factory version. I really will appreciate any help you can give me.
