One-off As­ton could fetch £4m

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A UNIQUE As­ton Martin mo­tor car is set to go for £4 MIL­LION at auc­tion.

The 1960 As­ton Martin DB4GT Ber­tone ‘Jet’ is the only one if its type ever built and is es­ti­mated to sell for £2.8m - £3.8m.

The com­plete ‘one-off’, which has been fully re­stored by As­ton Martin, will go un­der the ham­mer in the man­u­fac­turer’s 100th an­niver­sary year.

The award-win­ning car was the last off the pro­duc­tion line and is the only one of its kind with coach­work by Ital­ian de­sign house Ber­tone.

It will be of­fered for sale by Bon­hams at As­ton Martin Works in New­port Pagnell on May 18.

The car is of­fered from a de­ceased es­tate, and comes up for sale for the first time in 25 years.

Its late owner had sev­eral other As­tons, be­fore fall­ing for the Jet in 1986.
