Manufactured between 1959 and 1963, the DB4 GT was the sporty version of the DB4.

Aston Martin is pointing to the new fashion inaugurated by Jaguar to re-launch old models of its range. In the same way as did Jaguar with the E-Type Lightweight, and more recently with the XKSS, Aston will produce a short series of the DB4 GT in 1959.

This is one of the classic most valued brand, manufactured between 1959 and 1963, the DB4 GT is the version of short battle of the DB4 standard, created with the target in a competition. Originally they only were built 75 copies, of which only 8 units were equipped with the spec lightened more radical, the now Aston Martin Works you intend to play with these new 25 racks.

The brand will continue the numbering of the chassis from the last number manufactured (0202R) and will be assembled in Newport Pagnell, the same place from where came the 8 DB4 GT lightweight original.

Only 25 copies, already sold all.

These will have new technologies to ensure the quality of manufacture, although as did Jaguar, these will be faithful to the original, both in form and materials. To do this they will have a tubular frame on which is installed the body formed by aluminum panels.

Your engine will be 6-cylinder in-line 3.7-liter able to deliver 345 HP (340 hp), will have rear differential and a four-speed manual transmission.

A very important detail is that the vehicles will not be comparable, so it may only be used for circuits. To do this, the brand will create a program similar to that already available in the Vulcan, who during two years with a visit of the circuits most relevant on the planet to their customers may enjoy their “new classics” track. This program will have the pilot Darren Turner, several times winner of Le Mans.
