1960 Aston Martin  DB4GT ZAGATO

     
       

INCREDIBLE RESTORATION 1960 ASTON MARTIN DB4GT ZAGATO 5 SPEED AIR CONDITIONED

       

HAND-CRAFTED ALUMINUM BODY BUILT SUPERCHARGED DB7 MOTOR

       

 

     
       

        WHEN THE SULTAN OF BRUNEI AND HIS BROTHER PRINCE JEFFRI WERE BUYING ANY AND
          EVERYTHING THEY WANTED, THEIR AUTOMOTIVE COLLECTION WAS GROUPING TOGETHER
          THE BEST CARS FROM EVERY PERFORMANCE BRAND. THIS INCLUDED SEVERAL CUSTOM BUILT
          ASTON MARTINS INCLUDING A VANTAGE SPECIAL SERIES I. TAKING ALMOST ALL OF IT'S
          CUES FROM THE CLASSIC DB4 ZAGATO, THESE MODERN INTERPRETATIONS WERE SKETCHED
          OUT SPECIFICALLY FOR THE SULTAN MIMICKING THE 1961 RACE CAR WHICH WAS SENT TO
          TURIN AND BODIED BY SPECIALIST COACH BUILDER ZAGATO. 
         
             

       

WE, THE PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THIS PROJECT, STARTED OUT TRYING TO FORM A MORE PERFECT
          UNION BY COMBINING THE PAST WITH THE PRESENT (AS DID THE SULTAN OF BRUNEI). IT
          WAS A SIMPLE, YET AMBITIOUS PREMISE. TAKE THE ELEGANCE AND TIMELESS STYLING OF A
          1960 ASTON MARTIN DB4GT ZAGATO, MERGE IT WITH THE POWER & ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
          OF A PRESENT DAY ASTON THUS CREATING THE ABSOLUTE  BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. THIS CAR
          WOULD HAVE THE LOOK OF ONE OF THE RAREST & HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER CARS IN THE WORLD
          ALONG WITH THE DRIVEABILITY OF SOME OF THE TOP RATED SPORTS CARS AVAILABLE TODAY.

     
       

PLANNING WAS METICULOUS AND THOROUGH. FIRST, WE HAD TO BUILD A COMPLETE NEW
ALUMINUM BODY, INCLUDING THE ZAGATO COACHWORK. THE  FRAME WAS SENT TO WORLD
RENOWNED COACHBUILDER, CLIVE SMART, AT THE SHAPECRAFT FACILITY IN NEWPORT PAGNELL,
ENGLAND. THERE, THE ASTON BODY WAS METICULOUSLY CRAFTED OUT OF NOTHING MORE THAN
PREMIUM ALUMINUM AND THE SKILL OF THE ARTIST'S HANDS MANIPULATING THEIR ENGLISH
WHEELS.  STATESIDE, PLANS WERE ENGINEERED TO ACCOMMODATE A SUPERCHARGED DB7 MOTOR WITH
A 5 SPEED GETRAG TRANSMISSION FROM AN ALFRED  DUNHILL EDITION. THEN ANOTHER SLOW
BOAT BACK TO THE U.S.A. WHERE ASSEMBLY OF THE ENGINE, ELECTRONICS, UPHOLSTERY,
EXHAUST, SUSPENSION, ETC. BEGAN. WHEN IT WAS ALL COMPLETE AND THE LAST LITTLE
BIT OF PERFECTION HAD BEEN LAVISHED ON IT - WE DECIDED TO MARKET THE CAR.

       

THAT IN AND OF ITSELF WAS NOT EASY AS, AFTER ALL,  WE HAD CREATED THIS CAR OUT OF NOTHING.
          HOWEVER, AS UNCOMFORTABLE A NOTION AS SELLING MAY HAVE BEEN, IT WAS NOTHING COMPARED
          TO WHAT WAS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. AFTER WE UNVEILED OUR CREATION THROUGH SEVERAL
          WEBSITES AND eBAY, WE WERE BLINDSIDED BY SOMETHING TOTALLY UNEXPECTED. SOMEONE FROM
          HALFWAY AROUND THE WORLD WAS CLAIMING TO HAVE ANOTHER  ASTON WITH OUR SAME V.I.N.
          PLATE. WE WERE DUMBFOUNDED AND DEVASTATED AS WE HAD NEARLY 40 YEARS OF TITLE AND
          OWNERSHIP HISTORY. WE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO CEASE MARKETING UNTIL WE COULD UNRAVEL
          THE TRUTH. TO THIS DAY WE HAVE NEVER SEEN A SINGLE PICTURE OF THIS "OTHER" CAR  OR ONE
          SHRED OF EVIDENCE THAT OURS IS NOT THE GENUINE ARTICLE. BUT IN THE INTERESTS OF  FAIRNESS TO A
           POTENTIAL BUYER, REPUTATIONS,  EXORBITANT INTERNATIONAL LITIGATION COST AND WHO KNOWS HOW MUCH LOST TIME WE FELT THE RIGHT THING TO DO WAS REVEAL THE FACTS OF WHAT WE KNEW. WITH MUCH ANGUISH WE SECURED AN UNENCUMBERED TITLE WITH A NEW V.I.N. PLATE ISSUED BY THE STATE OF TEXAS.

       

SINCE THAT TIME WE HAVE LEARNED THAT RECORD KEEPING IN THOSE EARLY DAYS AT
          ASTON WAS NOT EFFICIENT AND DUPLICATE V.I.N. PLATES WERE NOT UNHEARD OF.
          WE BELIEVE THIS CAR TO BE THE GENUINE ARTICLE.
         

       

     
       


          EVERYTHING IN THIS CAR IS EITHER HAND-MADE & FABRICATED BRAND NEW.
          NO EXPENSE WAS SPARED WITH NEW PARTS THAT WERE BOUGHT.
          MULTIPLE DISC'S WILL BE PROVIDED WITH PICTURES. IN EXCESS OF $1M IN ACTUAL RECEIPTS INCLUDED.

       

     
       

CUSTOM ARIAS PISTONS, BRAND NEW BORRANI WHEELS.

       

TEC GT ENGINE MANAGEMENT
          SYSTEM WITH UNLIMITED PROGRAMMING.
          EATON SUPERCHARGER WAS COMPLETELY REBUILT BY MARSTON AEROSPACE & JET COATED.
          SUPERCHARGER HAS UNDERSIZED PULLEY FOR INCREASED PERFORMANCE.
          AS SOME EXAMPLES THE RING SET ALONE FOR THE PISTONS WERE $2300.
       

     
       

WATER PUMP $2400.  $4200. FOR A NEW CLUTCH KIT AND DISC.
          FOUR WHEEL DISC BRAKES.
AP RACING FRONT AND DBS  REAR.
          DBS CONTROL ARMS THROUGHOUT.
          CUSTOM STAINLESS EXHAUST.
          RACK AND PINION STEERING.

       

     
       

THE INTERIOR HAS THE FINEST MATCHED HIDES
          WHICH ARE CUSTOM STITCHED AND EMBROIDERED.

       

AIR-CONDITIONING.
          NAVIGATION SYSTEM. PIONEER HEAD UNIT.
          2X DIAMOND AUDIO AMPS 650 WATTS @4 OHMS.
  DIAMOND AUDIO SPEAKERS & SUBWOOFER.

     
       

DESPITE ALL THAT HAS HAPPENED, WE CONTINUE OUR QUEST FOR PROVENANCE.

       

GETTING THIS CAR FROM WHERE IT STARTED TO WHERE IT SITS TODAY WAS A JOURNEY OF EPIC
          SCALE. IT BEGAN WITH NOTHING MORE THAN THE FRAME AND TITLE TO A 1960 ASTON MARTIN DB4GT
          AND A LOFTY IDEA TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE. IT SPANNED 8 YEARS, 2 CONTINENTS, COUNTLESS
          ARTISANS AND OVER 1 MILLION DOLLARS. THE RESULTS OF ALL THAT TIME, TALENT AND MONEY ARE
          DOCUMENTED HERE FOR EVERYONE TO SEE. BUT IN THE END,THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE PERSON AS
          RARE AND UNIQUE AS THIS CAR ITSELF THAT WILL HAVE THE PRIVILEGE TO OWN IT.
          WE ARE PROUD TO BRING IT TO THE PUBLIC FOR  IT'S DEBUT - AGAIN!
