Car Crush: Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato

Aston's DB4 GTZ tops the Zagato love list

Zagato’s styling aesthetic is a little bit marmite.

But with Aston Martin, we think the Italian design house reached its true heights. And within a noble list of Aston Martin cars to bear the Z logo – we think the DB4 GTZ is the prettiest and most profoundly special of the cars they produced.

Unveiled in October 1960 at the London Motor Show, the car was a lightened, more sculpted version of the DB4 GT – with stripped down interior, aluminium panels and that curved, low-slung aspect.

Perspex windows and a lightweight aluminium engine block were the finishing touches.

Needless to say, the original 20 of these cars go for millions.

Perchance to dream.
