Available from 1960 to 1963, the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato is often considered one of the finest classics to come from the Aston Martin brand. The 1960 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato was quite different from the original DB4 GT both in style and construction. The DB4 GT Zagato would feature a very light fastback coupe body that was quite unmistakable, and offered a unique combination of curvature and angles. In an effort to reduce weight, the DB4 GT Zagato was also missing many of the frills from the standard edition including bumpers. Rather than being constructed in-house at Aston Martin, the DB4 GT Zagato rolling chassis were sent to Italy for body installation and would return to Newport Pagnell for painting and final assembly. Under the hood, a tuned 3.7L aluminum six-cylinder engine would produce 314hp and a top speed of nearly 154mph. In fact, the 1960 Aston martin DB4 GT Zagato could clock a 0-60 time of just 6.1 seconds. With fewer than 20 examples produced, the DB4 GT Zagato is highly sought-after and quite rare.

Because of their desirability and rarity, it is not uncommon to find an original DB4 GT modified into a Zagato replica. As such, one of the biggest Buyer’s Tips for the 1960 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato is to ensure that you are indeed looking at an authentic Zagato version. While two subsequent waves of cars based on DB4 models were released via cooperation with Zagato and Aston Martin known as Sanction II and Sanction III cars unauthorized, privately altered DB4 GT models can have quite different values than the authentic models. Always have any classic Aston Martin inspected by a qualified specialist that can not only match engine and chassis numbers to historic records, but who can also give you a better understanding of the car’s overall condition. You can also ask sellers for any information they have on the car’s ownership history, maintenance and repair, and restoration, as this can give you great insight into how the car was treated over the years.
