Car Of The Day: 1960 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato

Only 75 Aston Martin DB4 GTs were ever made making them highly-coveted among car collectors and enthusiasts. But for those die-hard collectors out there, the one they’re after is a DB4 GT Zagato, the most desirable Aston Martin of them all. The DB4 GT Zagato is a shorter-wheelbase version of the road-going DB4 and was developed specifically for competition. It features a drop-dead gorgeous bodywork courtesy of Zagato.

On the track, the DB4 Zagato raced at many important races alongside cars such as the Ferrari GTO. Unfortunately, due to low rigidity and over steer, it was still beaten by the Ferraris. This may stem from the fact that the car was originally developed as a road car. Even so, the DB4 Zagato is one of the most desirable Aston Martins and it might be Ercole Spada’s masterwork.
