One of only 25 continuation cars built to lightweight specification by Aston Martin Works at Newport Pagnell (Only 8 of the original cars were built to lightweight spec). Rarer still, this stunning delivery mileage example is 1 of only 2 continuation cars registered for the road in UK.
Employing a blend of old world craftsmanship and modern techniques, continuation cars benefit from improvements in engine performance, handling, braking and safety. This is simply the finest, most beautifully finished interpretation of the DB4GT. Underlining the authenticity of the continuation cars are specific VIN numbers, which carry on from the last original DB4 G.T. ordered - Chassis 0202R. This gives the continuation cars an unbroken bloodline and impeccable pedigree spanning half a century.
At the heart of the DB4GT is the Tadek Marek-designed straight-six cylinder engine with two spark plugs per cylinder, transmitting its 340bhp to the rear wheels via four-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential.
The DB4 G.T. also runs a shorter wheelbase to a standard DB4, providing greater agility and dynamics. The body has been constructed with thin-gauge aluminium panels fitted over a tubular frame, all hand-finished in time-honoured tradition.
Upon the launch of the DB4GT, Dr Andy Palmer, Aston Martin President and CEO commented: “Aston Martin has a rich and vibrant heritage, as you’d expect from a company that has been building some of the world’s finest sports cars for over 103-years. Of those the DB4 G.T. stands proud as one of the most coveted of all. It’s a mark of Aston Martin’s breadth of abilities that in the same year we launched the DB11 - our most advanced ‘DB’ production car ever - we can also embark on an adventure such as the DB4 G.T. Continuation. A project that taps into the unique passion and skills that exist within Aston Martin, I’m thrilled we have the imagination and capability to offer 25 enthusiasts the unique opportunity to commission their own piece of Aston Martin history.”
