Rare 1961 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato to be auctioned off

September 5, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

A rare production year 1961 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato will appear as a lot at Gooding & Company. The car is planned to be sold for 7-9 million pounds

This DB4 GT Zagato is built on the 0176 / R chassis and is the only one painted in a dark red shade called Peony. The car belonged to a British collector who owned the car for more than two decades, having driven it 24,140 km. Then, in 1985, the car was purchased by the head of Aston Martin Victor Gounlet, who traveled 48,280 km in the car.

The car, despite the fairly frequent use, was able to win many awards and even get into auto-mathematics magazines. The car, in particular, is one of the few DB4 GT Zagato that has not undergone a complete restoration.

As for the power unit of the car, it is equipped with a 314-horsepower 6-cylinder engine. The motor allows the model to accelerate to 97 km / h in 6.1 seconds and accelerate to a maximum of 248 km / h. In addition, the DB4 GT Zagato is quite rare as it has a run of only 25 pieces.

In addition, a “charged” Jaguar XJR with a 370-horsepower V8 power unit was recently put up for sale. It should be emphasized that in 22 years the car traveled 136,000 km across four US states and ended up in the hands of a private seller in Chicago.
