Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato


Two of the most valuable and collectable cars in Aston Martin's history - the DB4GT and DB4GT Zagato remain popular with Aston Martin owners and enthusiasts alike. With a combined volume of just 100 examples in total, these cars have fetched over £1m at auction. As pre-cursors to perhaps the most famous Aston Martin, the DB5, the DB4GT and DB4GT Zagato played a crucial role in defining some of the iconic design cues still used in by Aston Martin today.


In October 1959, at the London Motor Show, an exciting new development of the DB4 was unveiled. With a shorter chassis, faired in headlamps and an uprated engine with 3 Weber carburettors, the DB4GT was designed to be equally at home on road and track.
The DB4GT was 85Kg lighter than the DB4 and was raced extensively with success by many famous drivers of the day. 75 ‘Touring’ bodied cars were built including several lightweight versions produced specifically for racing to demonstrate the car’s superb capabilities.

In late 1960 the DB4GT Zagato was unveiled at the London Motor Show, clothed in a stunningly beautiful and lightweight body from the famous Italian coachbuilder. Only 19 examples were produced and this rarity is reflected in their high value today.
Four chassis numbers of the original proposed series remained unused and in 1991, four “Sanction 2” Zagatos, bodied in Italy and built by R.S.Williams Ltd in Cobham were produced with authorisation from the factory.
