Aston Martin is taking advantage of the trend of building brand-new factory continuations of vintage cars, revealing several new/old models built in limited numbers. The latest is this DB4 GT Zagato continuation, first announced last year. Aston has just completed the first one, and it’s a stunner.
Painted in Rosso Maja red over Obsidian black, DB4 GT Zagato continuation No. 1 sports a 4.7-liter straight-six engine sending over 390 horsepower to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential—a healthy improvement over the original’s 314-hp, 3.7-liter powerplant. Inside sits an FIA-approved roll-cage and carbon fiber bucket seats, while Borrani knock-off wire wheels round out the design. Like the Goldfinger DB5 continuation cars that came before it, this car is technically considered a brand-new vehicle—and thus, it’s not street-legal, as it doesn’t meet any of today’s safety or emissions standards.
