Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato - 1961 Goodwood TT - Salvadori
Amalgam’s first sample model has been presented to Aston Martin Lagonda's design team, who have examined it in detail and given it their full approval. The first batch of models has already sold out, with further small batches now being built in the Amalgam workshops. Customers now have the opportunity to secure a model from these following batches, by placing an order with full payment.
It has taken many, many hours of research, digital scanning of 1 VEV, CAD design work and pattern making, followed by casting, fitting and fine paint finishing. Now finally, after 12 months of hard and very skilled work, we are close to finishing the first small batch of one of the most important and beautiful creations in the entire history of the motor car.
British Aston Martin engineering, combined with Italian Zagato body design: a powerful partnership that has given birth to many extraordinary cars since the 1960s, but none more beautiful and valuable than the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato. There is good reason for the current valuation of 1 VEV between $10 and $15 million USD. Discipline is the father of creativity, and the beautiful form of the DB4 GT Zagato was moulded and forged by the demanding brief handed to Ercole Spada to take every aspect of the already exceptional DB4 GT’s performance, and push it to a new level. With a raised top speed of 154 mph, the Zagato bodied car added three miles per hour to the top speed, with 0-60 in only 6.1 seconds. This was truly a race car made legal for the road, and anyone who has seen one of these cars up close will have experienced the impression of aircraft quality engineering they exude. In a nutshell, this car is automotive art at its most refined, and with only 19 cars created it is no surprise that the value is so very high.
