The Aston Martin DB4 G.T. is one of the most beguiling grand tourers of all time, officially unveiled in 1959 and heralding a golden era for GT racing. Driven in period by the likes of Stirling Moss and Jim Clark, it battled, and often beat, the likes of the Ferrari 250 GT and Jaguar E-type.
This superb book, authored by respected writer James Page, tells the story of the original cars, with a number of stunning period photographs, but also has an in-depth analysis of the 25 new continuation cars created by Aston Martin. Describing their technical authenticity, using original suppliers wherever possible, and reverse-engineering using period components, this is a tribute, not just to the DB4 G.T. but to the skilled workers who made sure every detail was correct – a legend being reborn and given new life.
