A Fitting Debut for an Amazing Car
Aston Martin’s DB4 GT Zagato is a special car. Only 19 of the vehicles were produced. This makes it one of the most exclusive Aston Martins out there. However, Aston has a special Continuation project. It will build 19 additional DB4 GT Zagatos, and it recently completed the first in the Continuation series. According to the company, it will bring that first car to Le Mans for its official debut.
The DB4 GT Zagato is a track only car. It’s an exact copy of the original car. The engine is a 4.7-liter straight six. That engine was also used in the DB4 GT Continuation. The car will be on display at Le Mans in the Aston Martin VIP hospitality facility at the Circuit de la Sarthe.
The car took about 4,500 hours to complete. It’s finished in the original color from the 1960s, which is called Rosso Maja (a unique shade of red). The interior mostly black, with leather seats, black carpet, and a full FIA roll cage equipped as standard. When the cars are sold, they’ll be offered with the new Aston DBS GT Zagato as a package deal. That deal, however, comes at a pretty penny. It will cost £6 million ($7.6 million) before taxes.
