One of the most desirable cars ever made, the Aston Martin DB4GT was raced in period by the likes of motorsport greats Stirling Moss and Jim Clark. Almost 60 years after the model was introduced, Aston Martin set out to build 25 continuation examples of its Touring-bodied icon, and this new book from Porter Press tells the full story of that amazing project. With exclusive behind-the-scenes access and stunning photography, Aston Martin DB4GT Continuation covers the history of the DB4GT as well as the challenges involved with restarting production at the legendary Newport Pagnell factory. An essential reference for enthusiasts as well as an entertaining record of this painstakingly impressive journey, this book is a fitting celebration of all things DB4GT.
