DB4 GT Zagato

History

"The Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato was launched in 1960. Using the existing floorpan of a standard DB4 the car was shortened to a 93" wheelbase and handed to the Italian coachbuilder "Zagato" to improve the performance and shroud it in a beautiful aluminium bodyshell.

Due to the lack of popularity and the price at the time, only 19 original cars were made. These cars are now priceless with estimated values between £3 - £4 milllion.

Two "Works" cars were made for Aston Martin, recognisable by thier number plates 1VEV and 2VEV. Both cars competed in the 1961 Le Mans 24hrs.

All the cars were hand made, no two DB4 GT Zagatos were the same. We have been inspired by the beauty and lines of what is considered the best of the 19 cars. And we can tailor make any element of the build to suit individual tastes.

    Evanta Motor company offers our motorcar in two forms. A traditional scratch built classic or a modern DB7 conversion
