An absurdly beautiful 1961 Aston Martin DB4 uprated to “GT Zagato” specification will be the starring lot at Bonhams’ 15th annual Aston Martin Works Sale at the marque’s factory in Newport Pagnell, UK, on May 17.

The sinuous beauty, was the subject of a no-expense-spared project to re-create one of the 1960s’ most beautiful and desirable cars.

The original collaboration between Aston Martin and Zagato of Milan resulted in a production run of only 19 cars built between 1961 and 1963 that remain a holy grail for Aston collectors.

They can run into many millions, so at $1.5 million, this baby is literally cheap at twice the price…
