The Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato was introduced in 1960 at the London Motor Show. It was basically a DB4 GT improved by the Zagato factory in Italy, by Ercole Spada. The Zagato’s engine produced 314 hp (234 kW), a 0 to 60 mph acceleration of just 6.1 seconds and a top speed of 153 mph (246 km/h). Initially the factory had plans to produce 25 cars, but demand wasn’t as strong as expected and production ceased at the 20th unit. Nowadays the car sells for around £750,000.

The DB4 GT Zagato was raced in the 1962 Le Mans 24 Hours race by such famous names as Roy Salvadori and Jim Clark. In 1991, 4 unutilised chassis numbers were put to use. With the approval of Aston Martin, four DB4 chassis were appropriately uprated to GT specifications. The chassis were then sent to Zagato’s Milan workshop to be bodied. To familiarize the workforce with construction techniques of the 60’s, an original DB4 GT Zagato went sent along to be dismantled. These cars were known as the Sanction II cars. They were outwardly identical, but several changes were affected in the interest of better handling. Each of these cars sold for over $1,000,000.
