1960 Aston Martin DB4GT

Many of Aston Martin’s vehicles bare the mark of race-tested pedigree, and as one of the most successful platforms of all time, the manufacturer’s DB4GT is no exception. In particular, a certain GT belonging to the contemporary motor racing photographer (and founder of the Cotswold Motor Museum), Guy Griffiths, stood among 75 other variants as one of Aston’s most celebrated examples.

The 1960 DB4GT (0110/R) you see here was originally finished in a Deep Carriage Green and Beige hide colorway — a testament to the beautifully drawn body styles of the era. It would eventually be sold to Mike Knights, who would campaign the 302-bhp coupe in a variety of races, including the Firle Hill Climb and Brighton Speed Trials. From there, it would pass through the hands of a number of different owners before its acquisition in 2001 by Peter Thorton, who commissioned Aston Engineering Ltd to devise a 370-bhp, twin-plug 4.2 race engine for the car. The 0110/R is an unmistakable participant within the historic GT racing scene and boasts the title of the “most competitive DB4GT” to have ever graced the circuit. Now, the vehicle is up for sale via Auxietre & Schmidt, who can be contacted directly for information on pricing.
