If Aston Martin is defined by its Grand Touring cars – high-speed, long-distance vehicles which are also highly capable on the race track – then the DB4GT is arguably the most significant car to live up to that definition in the marque’s 103-year history.
It is the epitome of the GT car. Comfortable for two, it has few frills and a level of luxury that any gentleman driver would desire for everyday driving. Yet, it’s also capable of heart-stopping performance and superb handling on racetracks around the world.
The DB4GT not only symbolises the heyday of the road and race GT era, but also has an illustrious history with racing success in the hands of some of the true greats, such as Moss, Hill and Clark. Indeed, the DB4GT won its debut race in 1959.
The book examines in detail the history of every DB4GT manufactured, as well as design and development of the car, and tells of the brilliance of the craftsmen involved in producing it.
In true Palawan tradition, this is the finest tribute to one of the very best British cars ever made and should be a treasured volume on the bookshelf of any aficionado of sporting cars.
