Description of the original vehicle:
    What serves as a powerful reminder of Aston Martin? Simply put, the DB4 GT Zagato, which has become one of the most sought-after sports cars in the world today. By adopting a soft design language that accentuates the styling of curves, Gianni Zagato succeeded in tailoring an imaginative body for the car. Interestingly all the nineteen original cars are a little different form each other, as Zagato graciously accommodated customer preferences in detailing the body of each car.

    Aston Martin’s immediate goal was to compete against the dominant Ferrari 250 GT SWB and even outpace it. The DB4 GT Zagato was famous for its light-weight body. This was achieved by wise choice of materials (e.g. thin aluminium plates) and removal of body trimmings and unnecessary luxuries so that the weight of the DB4 GT was reduced by more than 100 kg. But even this radical "body slimming" and the maximum output of 314 hp were not enough to clinch the success that Aston Martin had hoped for. At the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1961, two Zagato’s from the Essex Racing Stable of Great Britain raced with the license plates "1 EV" and "2 EV", but they failed to break the dominance of the Ferrari cars. Even seasoned pilots like Jim Clark, Roy Salvadori, and Innes Ireland had to concede to the Ferrari dominance in subsequent races, which saw them each drive a Zagato.

    CMC based its replica on the 19 original Zagato’s and has it painted in “Aston Martin racing green".
Technical data of the original vehicle:
  1. 6-cylinder in-line engine, mounted behind the front axle with two overhead cam shafts
  2. Maximum output: 314 hp at 6,000 rpm
  3. Displacement: 3,670 ccm
  4. Compression ratio: 9.7 : 1

  7. Wheel base: 2,363 mm
  8. Track front: 1,372 mm
  9. Track rear: 1,359 mm
