Debuted at the 1960 London Motor Show as a follow-up to the widely loved Aston Martin DB4 GT in standard form, the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato would feature refined body styling by the world-famous coachbuilder Zagato of Italy. Zagato would transform the DB4 GT into a smaller, more aerodynamic, lightweight sports car by replacing many of the steel components with aluminum, and by stripping any non-essential elements from the car such as bumpers. In total, more than 100 pounds was shed from the car. Under the hood, a highly tuned 3.7L six-cylinder engine would offer 314hp and a 0-60 time of just 6.1 seconds. Top speed was a reported 154mph! Produced from 1960 to 1963, fewer than twenty examples were ever released, making the DB4 GT quite rare and exclusive today. If you’ve been dreaming about buying a 1962 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato and are ready to take the leap, The Beverly Hills Car Club would be delighted to assist you.
