The Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato was introduced in 1960 at the London Motor Show. It was effectively a DB4 GT improved by the Zagato factory in Italy, by Ercole Spada. The Zagato's engine produced 314hp, a 0-60mph acceleration of just 6.1 seconds and a top speed of 154mph.
Initially the factory had plans to produce 25 cars, but demand wasn't as strong as expected and production ceased at the 24th unit. Nowadays the car sells for over £3,500,000. The DB4 GT Zagato was raced in the 1962 24Hour Le Mans race by such famous drivers as Roy Salvadori and Jim Clark.
