The Aston Marin DB4 GT Zagato Continuation is the rebirth of a 1960 icon and you can only purchase in a pair with the DBS GT Zagato as part of the DBZ Centenary Collection. It doesn’t come cheap either with the company asking £6 million for the two cars and only 19 pairs will ever be made.
But for the avid Aston Martin collectors, this DB4 GT Zagato Continuation is right up there in the must haves. The first car will make its public debut at the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2019 at Aston Martin’s VIP hospitality facility, seeking an audience with the brand’s most exclusive customers.
The DB4 GT Zagato Continuation is built at Aston Martin’s Heritage Division headquarters in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire and each car takes 4,500 manhours to put together. Finished in the bright Rosso Maja exterior shade, the car is matched to the original paint that was supplied by Max Meyer & ICI in the 1960’s.
Obsidian Black leather is used for the interior trimmings while the Borrani silver painted wheels, Continuation specification instrumentation and interior equipment such as a full FIA-approved roll cage are standard items.
Motivation comes from a 4.7-litre naturally aspirated straight-six petrol engine producing over 390 hp. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 4-speed manual transmission and a limited slip differential.
The DBZ Centenary Collection was made to celebrate Aston Martin and Zagato’s 60 years of creative partnership and first customers deliveries will commence in Q3 of 2019 while the DBS GT Zagato – which has yet to been revealed – is scheduled for deliveries in late 2020.
