Hexagon are delighted to offer this wonderful Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato, a model which was introduced in October 1960 at the London Motor Show. It was effectively a DB4 GT, lightened and improved at the Zagato factory in Italy, by Ercole Spada. Initially the factory had plans to produce 25 cars, but demand in that period was not strong as they were priced at the then astronomical figure of £5,470, so factory production ceased at the 19th unit.   The most prominent DB4 GT Zagatos, affectionately known by the registration plates they share, 1 VEV and 2 VEV, were both raced under John Ogier's Essex Racing Stable, with assistance from the Aston Martin factory. Both the Zagatos raced in the 1961 24 Hours of Le Mans. However, a repeat of the 1959 Le Mans victory was not to be, with both cars retiring. In July 1961 at a British Grand Prix Support race, the Zagato had its first victory with 2 VEV taking the last lap lead from a Jaguar E Type.
