Aston Martin AM4

The Aston Martin AM4: the Sultan’s one-one-off by Pininfarina.

Vehicle Overview

The Aston Martin AM4 by Pininfarina is a unique and striking example of bespoke automotive design. Commissioned by the Sultan of Brunei, the AM4 was conceived in 1995 and based on the Aston Martin Vantage 600 chassis. This special model was designed by Scott A. Barras at Pininfarina Studi e Ricerchi, reflecting the pinnacle of custom car design and luxury. The AM4 featured a muscular and curvaceous body that paid homage to the classic Aston Martin models like the DB5 and DB6, particularly in its front-end design. This retro styling was blended with modern elements, creating a seamless fusion of past and present Aston Martin aesthetics. The car’s design included prominent cues from its predecessors while incorporating contemporary touches that set it apart as a unique creation. The Sultan of Brunei’s commission also included a counterpart to the AM4, known as the AM3. While the AM4 embraced a more traditional and robust design, the AM3 showcased a modern and sleek profile with distinctively contrasting extremities. The design of the AM3 was inspired by the classic Aston Martin grille shape but was executed in a way that highlighted a more forward-thinking and avant-garde approach. Both models, the AM3 and AM4, represent the epitome of custom automotive design, tailored to the specific tastes and preferences of the Sultan of Brunei. These cars were part of a larger trend during the 1990s where high-net-worth individuals, particularly from the Brunei royal family, commissioned bespoke vehicles from renowned designers and manufacturers, pushing the boundaries of automotive luxury and personalization. The creation of the AM4 by Pininfarina showcases the Italian design house’s ability to blend classic and modern elements while adhering to the high standards of luxury and performance expected by Aston Martin and its elite clientele. This collaboration resulted in two unique models that not only highlighted the versatility of Pininfarina’s design capabilities but also underscored the timeless appeal of Aston Martin’s design heritage
