The DB4 GT: Resurrection

Aston Martin intended to bring back its iconic model, the DB4 GT. Almost 60 years after the luxury carmaker first unveiled this classical model, it is going to revive this legendary sports car. The DB4 GT will be made in a track-only version with the expected pricing tag of $1.9M.

Launched in 1959 and produced in the period from 1959 to 1963, this glorious racing sports car was tightly linked to the name of Stirling Moss and its triumphant debut at Silverstone. This 3.7-liter two-seater was regarded as the fastest passenger car in Britain. Only 75 units were built; on top of that, each of the surviving units is worth approximately $3,7M. So no wonder the reissued DB4 GT continuation model will be limited to 25 units only; the 340-hp lightweight track-only versions seem to find a quick sale. According to Andy Palmer’s, AM CEO, tweet, all the reissued units are already sold out despite its high price and expected to be delivered by the end of 2017.
