The Aston Martin DB4 Zagato is the company's most expensive car ever
Aston Martin has a bold new design language that started with their DB11 and has trickled down to the new Vanatge. Looks are all subjective, but personally I'm not a huge fan. Being a former 2007 V8 Vantage owner, I'm admittedly a bit biased towards the older Astons, even right up to the latest generation.
So imagine my delight when Aston announced last year that they would be bringing back the DB4 in a limited run. Not only that, but it'd be the hyper rate and staggeringly beautiful DB4 Zagato.
Feast your eyes on arguably one of the most beautiful cars ever made.
And here's the kicker: it's brand new. This isn't some older model gussied up to look new. No. This is an all new, hand-built version that took over 4,500 build hours to complete.
This is a common thing happening among car brands these days. "Continuation" models, like this DB4 Zagato example, are all the rage and tons of high-profile/high-paying customers are clamouring for them. Jag has famously done the same thing with their D-types and the results are incredible.
This Aston however is fantastic and comes with a 4.7 liter, straight 6-cylinder engine that is slightly larger than the one found in the regular DB4 continuation. There will only be 19 units because, well, they're crazy hard to make (did you not see 4,500 hours to build?) and the attention to detail is amazing. Oh and the price? $7.8 million. The most expensive new Aston Martin ever made.
