Auction Block: 1961 Aston Martin DB4 GT

Feb 1, 2021

Category: Rides

Although the Aston Martin DB4 is routinely overshadowed by the James Bond-associated DB5, Aston’s earlier-generation grand tourer is nothing to sneeze at. And that’s especially true of this sparkling 1961 Aston Martin DB4 GT that’s currently up for auction.

As you may have noticed, the DB4 — which Aston produced from 1958 to 1963 — shares almost identical styling to its successor. The GT version is a sportier version of the luxury-minded DB4, with a shorter wheelbase, lighter aluminum body panels, and a more powerful 3.7 L engine making 302 horsepower. Only 75 DB4 GTs were ever built, and the one offered here is an even rarer bird, as it’s one of just 30 left-hand drive models. It was also completely disassembled, rebuilt, and restored in 2020, giving this 60-year-old classic sports car fresh-from-the-assembly-line looks. The restorers also chose to beef up the engine, boring out the matching-numbers original powerplant’s displacement to 4.7 L. The cost of these restorations totaled over $550,000, which is part of the reason why this very special Brit is expected to fetch up to $3.4 million when its auction ends on February 5.

Purchase: $1.4 million+
