A very rare Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato has been recently sold at an auction for a whopping 1, 23 million pounds.
The development of the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato was the result of the first collaboration between the British car manufacturer and Zagato, at the dawn of the 1060s, which lead to the production of 20 vehicles. The DB4 GT Zagato in question was first owned by Tony Smith, a historic racer and former manager of Phil Collins and it’s wearing the 0198/R number on its chassis. The British vehicle had also 12,000 GBP worth of servicing and tuning.
As a quick reminder, the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato was officially presented to the public in a world premiere at the London Motor Show back in October 1960 and the vehicle has been produced in 20 units between 1960 and 1963. The Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato was replaced by the V8 Zagato and the model is coming as a grand tourer, with a coupe body style and a straight six-cylinder DOHC 3,670cc engine, mated to a four-speed manual transmission. The DB4 GT Zagato is 4,267 mm long, 1,557 mm wide and 1,270 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,362 mm and a curb weight of 1,225 kg.
