Rare Aston Martin DB4 GT Continuation Resurfaces

One of just 19 Aston Martin DB4 GT Continuation cars built in 2017 is now for sale again at Aston Martin Works. The DB4 GT was the first of Aston’s classic cash cows and was followed by 19 DB4 Zagatos and 25 soon-to-be-delivered Goldfinger 007 replica DB5s.
Aston Martin originally made 75 DB4 GTs between 1959 and 1963, of which only eight were lightweights like this faithful recreation. The Superleggera tubular steel frame is draped in gorgeous, flowing, thin-gauge aluminum panels designed by Touring of Milan but, thanks to modern scanning technology, the fit and finish of these hand-beaten panels is even better than the original cars.
Similarly, the straight-six, twin-spark engine designed by Tadek Marek has been fettled to 4.2 liters and makes 344 hp. Mated to a four-speed manual transmission and a limited slip differential it could well be the best-driving DB4 out there.
The previous owner doesn’t appeared to have attempted to find out, however, as this Snow Shadow Grey DB4 GT is for sale with delivery miles only. Costing an equivalent of $1.9 million just three years ago, it will be fascinating to see whether the DB4 GT cashes in or crashes out.
