The rebirth of cool
Up to $2m and not a carbon tub, ceramic brake disc or whizzo hybrid booster in sight. Collectors can’t get enough of the limited ‘continuations’ and reborn classics that trickle onto the market. Here are four worth saving for.
Not a factory ‘Continuation’ but surely the best, most desirable reincarnations of air-cooled 911s on the planet. BYO barrow-loads of cash.
Aston Martin DB4 GT
A run of 25 cars built as continuations of the 75 homologation specials produced from 1959-’63. Priced at just over US$2M.
Limited run of 50 made by Superformance under official licence. Available with fibreglass body (US$150K) or aluminium for US$250K.
The third model to be built by Jaguar Classic. Just 25 will be hand crafted, bringing total production up to the 100 units originally planned for in 1955.
