Produced from 1960-1963, by an independent coachbuilding company with a total design centre located northwest of Milan in the Terrazzano frazione of Rho, Lombardy, Italy – the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato was a less-popularized aerodynamic, and super-lightweight grand tourer sports car, with a limited production of 20 examples. Giving way to further enhancement and rendering, the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato represents the predecessor of the more well-known ‘Sanction II’ and ‘Sanction III’ automobiles.
Despite being considered a highly overlooked and underrated build in the past, over time, the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato has earned its title as one of the world’s most beautiful, iconic, and desirable sports cars of its era. Clothed in exotic Zagato coachwork, this specific build was the sole example finished in Peony, an elegant dark red with an authentic chassis coded, 0176/R.
Having won awards at the world’s leading concours d’elegance and featured in numerous books on the marque and model, this car has never required a complete restoration. Effortlessly demonstrating its revered Aston Martin athletic, dual-purpose nature, the DB4 GT Zagato, retains its original condition and engine, as documented by factory build records on file – making it one of the most original examples of this rare and sought-after breed.
