2007 DB4 GT Continuation RHD (1 of 25 Worldwide) For Sale

In 1959, Stirling Moss drove an Aston Martin DB4 GT to victory on its race debut at Silverstone. Half a century on the DB4 GT Continuation is the first “new” car to be built at Newport Pagnell since the final Vanquish S was completed in 2007. It’s a welcome return for one of the most prized Aston Martins of all time. Later driven by Innes Ireland and Roy Salvadori and raced at Le Mans, just 75 examples of the original DB4 GT were produced at Newport Pagnell until 1963. These cars took the regular DB4 as a starting point, but shortened the wheelbase by 13cm to lower its weight by 85kg and increase its agility. A twin-plug cylinder head was also added to the straight-six engine for extra performance. Only eight of the 75 were built in Lightweight trim, for an even more focused driving experience — non-essentials were deleted and the floorpan and bulkheads were manufactured from aluminium, not steel, with holes drilled in them to save weight. Today, these cars command prices in excess of £3m. Aston Martins solution was to digitally scan “eight or nine” original cars and study over 450 original drawings to bring the DB4 GT back into production. The attention to detail is staggering. The 1.2mm aluminium panels are the exact gauge of the originals, despite being substantially harder to shape than a thicker gauge. Original suppliers have been used wherever possible: the door locks are made by the original manufacturer; Borrani reproduced the 16-inch wire wheels it first supplied in 1959 to the exact specification. Each car takes an estimated 4,500 hours to complete and costs £1.5m excluding options and Vat.
