At its January 28th Arizona Biltmore sale, RM Auctions will offer a rare piece of Aston Martin history in the form of a 1962 Aston Martin DB4 GT “Zagato” Coupe. One of only 19 ever built, this particular car is the 1962 Brands Hatch race winner, driven by sports car legend Roy Salvadori, who three years earlier won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in another Aston Martin with Carroll Shelby.
Perhaps the most unique of the 19 built by Italian coachbuilder Zagato, this car has many features specially requested by its original owner, including thicker gauge alloy panels, chromed brightwork, and glass in place of the traditional Perspex windows. It also sports a unique grill configuration and late DB4-style rear lights. Chassis #DB4 GT, Serial #0190/L has a pre-auction estimate of between $2,500,000 and $2,800,000.
Another of the auction’s million-dollar offerings is a 1953 Ferrari 250 MM Pinin Farina Competition Coupe, a fabulous ex–Franco Rol early V-12 competition coupe complete with ACCUS and FIA papers. Its auction estimate is $1,100,000 to $1,500,000. For additional information on this sale call (800) 211-4371 or visit www.rmauctions.com
