Unique Aston Martin DB4GT sells for £3,249,500

A unique Aston Martin DB4GT fetched a world record price of £3,249,500 on Saturday, as part of the Aston Martin Centenary Sale at Aston Martin Works. Every lot was sold for a total of over £10 million.

The highlight of the event was a 1961 DB4GT nicknamed ‘The Jet’. It was the last DB4GT built and the only one of its kind, with coachwork by Italian design house Bertone.

There was also a ‘barn find’ 1964 DB5 coupe in original condition and with fewer than 48,000 miles on the clock. The DB5 fetched £320,700.

Kingsley Riding-Felce, Managing Director of Aston Martin Works, said: “This year’s Bonhams sale was a great success, with 197 lots finding new buyers and more than 2,000 customers and enthusiasts taking part. It was the first event to make use of the fully refurbished Olympia Building which now houses our Heritage Showroom, and that made the day all the more special.
