1960 Aston Martin DB4 GT

The Aston Martin DB4 GT is one of the finest sports/racing cars of its era. Introduced in 1959, at the London Motor Show, the DB4 GT is five inches shorter than the standard DB4 and strictly a two-seater with its lower roof-line. The 3.7 liter 6-cylinder engine, fitted with a high compression twin plug cylinder head and triple twin-choke Weber carburetors, develops 302 horsepower at 6,000 RPM. The car performs sensationally, accelerating from 0-60 in 6.4 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 152 mph. This is the first sports car capable of 0-100-0 mph in 20 seconds, due in part to its four-wheel Girling competition disc brakes.

Only 94 DB4 GTs were manufactured, 75 by Touring and 19 by Zagato, and only 30 of those cars were left-hand drive.

This car raced in the 1961 12 Hours of Sebring. It was running seventh in the fourth hour when it was forced out by a failed hub. It also competed at Laguna Seca in 1989, where Aston Martin was the featured Marque.

It won the Robert Harrison Memorial Best Overall Trophy at the Lime Rock Sprints in 1984, 1988 and again in 1994.
