Aston Martin delivers the first of the 19 DB4 GT Zagato "Continuation".
The first Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato "Continuation" have just been delivered to their respective owners. As a reminder, this model is a reissue of the 1960s eponymous racing car designed by Aston Martin with the Italian coachbuilder Zagato. Like the original, this recreation should be produced only 19 copies.
Reserved for track use, the car is powered by a 4.7L six-cylinder in-line developing "over" 395hp derived from the original 3.7L block that offered just over 300hp. It is hand-assembled in the historic workshops of Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell, England. Each copy requires approximately 4,500 hours of manpower.
The DBS GT Zagato in a year
The DB4 GT Zagato "Continuation" is part of the DBZ Centenary Collection offered by Aston Martin and Zagato, also counting the DBS GT Zagato based on the current DBS Superleggera. Only 19 of these are also planned, and both cars are sold exclusively together. This initiative marks both the centenary of Zagato in 2019 and the 60th anniversary of the collaboration between the two companies in 2020.
Each duo costs 6 million pounds (about 6.7 million euros) excluding taxes. Deliveries of the DBS GT Zagato are due to start at the end of 2020.
