Rare Aston DB4 GT for auction

Aston Martin DB4 GT fq

The Aston Martin DB4 GT is a rare breed with only 75 units built between 1959 and 1963. Of those exclusive vehicles, a mere six are the coveted lightweight models that cut weight by using aluminum components (instead of steel) and have items like the radio, speakers, and heater removed. Understandably it's rare that one comes up for sale, but this January, RM Auctions will be offering a pristine example at their next auction.

The car going up for sale is chassis #0175/L, the last DB4 GT Lightweight built. It underwent a complete restoration in the mid-Nineties where it received upgrades like Dunlop racing tyres, Dayton wire wheels, and a four-point roll bar. The car was never competitively raced in the Sixties, but several owners have competed the car in various vintage races at tracks in the States.
