The Aston Martin DB4 GT was a lighter, higher-performance version of the standard DB4. It looked quite different with enclosed headlights and a shorter wheelbase. The styling of this car was later carried over to the DB5 model.
I saw this particular car at the 75th Goodwood Members’ Meeting. It competed in the Graham Hill Trophy Race for GT cars that raced between 1960 and 1966.
It was ordered new in 1959 with the latest Zagato specification engine. Prepared as a racing car, it participated in the Sebring 12 hours, Bahamas Speed Week and the Bridgehampton Grand Prix.
This DB4 GT saw extensive competitive and road use on both sides of the Atlantic. It is now a regular at historic racing events.
