Aston Martin DB4 GT by Stephen Archer & Richard A Candee

Peter Sutcliffe’s foreword bills this as ‘without doubt the definitive work on these cars’, so the bar for success is set pretty high. Archer and Candee clear it, covering the GT’S development, engineering and racing exploits in impressive detail – and cataloguing every GT chassis, too. It’s certainly more reference than light reading (not least because it weighs 5kg), but the recollections of inimitable racing team manager John Wyer and others add colour throughout.
