The Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato is returning with a ‘Continuation’ run of 19 cars with a DBS GT Zagato thrown in to the deal for a £7 million price tag.
We’re still not sure we like the latest fad for ‘Continuation’ versions of classic cars – like the Aston Martin DB5 Goldfinger and DB4 GT – but Aston Martin are back with another continuation run, this time with a run of of 19 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato models – once the most expensive Aston Martin ever sold – at a thumping £7.2 million.
As is the case with all these continuation models, thanks to current safety regulations, you won’t be able to drive the DB4 GT Zagato on the road (well, not unless you own the country), but AML has a solution for that. They’re twinning the sales of the DB4 GT Zagato with that of a DBS GT Zagato, so you get a modern Zagato for the road and a classic one to drool over and take to the track. They will not be sold separately. Well, at least not until the aftermarket.
The DB4 GT Zagatos will be built at Aston’s Newport Pagnell Plant with a thin gauge aluminium body, straight-six with 380bhp and four-speed manual gearbox.
The other half of the deal is the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato – a pairing AML are calling ‘The DBZ Centenary Collection’ – which you can expect to come with the usual Zagato tricks of double-bubble roof and big grille added to the new DBS Superleggera.
At £7.2 million in the UK it’s a pricey offering, and even if you jump in and place your order now you’ll have to wait until the end of 2019 for the DB4 and another year longer for the DBS.
Of course, you could always buy one of the already existing Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato ‘Sanction’ models if you want a car you can actually use.
