DB4 GT Za­gato 1960-1963

VANTAGE - - All the Road Cars 1960s-1970s -

The rarest, most beau­ti­ful and most de­sir­able of all post-war As­tons. With the short­ened chas­sis and highly tuned en­gine of the DB4 GT (but with an even higher com­pres­sion ra­tio), and clothed in even lighter alu­minium body­work of quite ex­quis­ite pro­por­tions (the work of a young Er­cole Spada), Za­gatos to­day com­mand vast sums at auc­tion. In­cred­i­ble to tell, then, that the orig­i­nal planned run of 25 was re­duced to 20 be­cause of lack of take-up. The un­used chas­sis num­bers were even­tu­ally re­cy­cled in the ’90s as the ‘Sanc­tion’ cars.

Spec­i­fi­ca­tion En­gine 3670cc, in-line 6 power 314bhp @ 6000rpm Torque 278lb ft @ 5400rpm 0-60mph 6.1sec Top speed 154mph
