In the late 1950’s and early 1960’s Ferrari and Aston Martin engaged in a heated competition for the World Sportscar Championship. And so the DB4GT Zagato was born from an attempt to usurp Ferrari. The original Aston Martin DB4 could not stand a chance, so Aston Marin approached Zagato, the famous Italian coachbuilder. The result was a new iconic design vocabulary: a lengthened nose, a more pronounced grille, softer styling, and a lighter and faster car. At the 1961 Le Mans, the well acclaimed French driver, Jean Kerguen, and his co-pilot, Jaques Dewez were selected to race one of the DB4GT Zagato cars. Anticipation was high for this all-star team. They were well-prepared and the race started out well. To their dismay, however, the starter broke down during the final pit stop, and the team had to withdraw. Their Zagato had been in 3rd position of the GT class, making it the greatest British race car of its day.

The CMC Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato Starting -No.1 Le Mans /white 1961 recognizes the mythical and sporting provenance of the original Grand Touring motor car. It is worth noting, that since there are many variations on the nineteen original DB4GT Zagatos, historic accuracy is elusive so this model is the best possible representation of the defining characteristics of the automobile. Limited edition of 2,500 units.
