Types: Coupe,2 doors,2 seats
Aston Martin Db4 Gt Coupe (1962)

The DB4GT offered even greater performance than the standard DB4 Saloon. First introduced in 1959 the DB4GT had a short wheelbase body and a revised six cylinder engine which now had twin distributors (with twin spark plugs per cylinder) and triple twin choke Weber Carbs, producing a staggering 302bhp.

The extra performance from the DB4GT engine now resulted in a increased top speed of 153mph and a 0-60 time of just over six seconds. Due to the cars shorter wheelbase no rear seats were included in the DB4GT, an extra luggage platform was included instead. Another identification point is that all DB4GTs had Perspex headlamp covers and exposed racing style fuel filler caps on the rear wings.

Just 75 true DB4GTs were produced from 1959 until 1963, excluding 19 GTs which were bodied by Italian coachbuilder Zagato.
