If you weren’t able to get hold of one of the 14 DB4 GT Continuation models that Aston Martin built back in June last year, you now have the chance to own an original one from 1961 thanks to Gooding & Company, but it’ll cost you an estimated $9.1 million USD — $1.5 million USD over the 2019 Continuation creations.

The car itself was designed as a collaborative effort between English and Italian automakers. Carrying a lightweight allow body from Ercole Spada, the classic model is powered by a 3.7–liter aluminium inline-six engine capable of pushing out 314 horsepower, which translated to a 0-60 mph time of just 6.1 seconds. Making this particular unit more special than any others is its unique Peony red finish, which was never used on any other example. It started its life in the ’60s under the ownership of Teddy Beck of Cheshire, England, who kept the car for over 20 years and only drove it over 15,000 miles. Since 1979, the car would meet another four owners, including Aston Martin’s director Victor Gauntlett and the famous car collector Paul Vestey.

For those interested, you can now bid for this 1961 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato over on Gooding & Company’s website.

Elsewhere in the world of classic cars, a 1963 Porsche 356B outlaw is currently up for sale over at Canepa.
