More recently, the DBGT Special has had an extensive chassis restoration at Aston Martin specialists, RS Williams, and then on to the Zagato factory in Italy for the fitting of an original style DB4GT Zagato body. So whilst it can be described as a genuine DB4GT Zagato, it cannot to be counted as one of the first 19 cars.
The car has been more recently put up for auction at the AM/Bonhams event in 2006 at Works Service. The car was arranged both with a V8 Zagato and a more recent prototype DB7 Zagato, a very rare photo opportunity. I don’t think that the car reached its reserve but it did find a new owner shortly after the event. Then in September 2006, the DBGT Special attended the AMOC Zagato display at Brooklands which gave me my first chance to photograph the car with one of the first 19 Zags.
The DBGT Special with coachwork by Zagato is now raced by Chris Scragg. The photographs here were taken during the support race for the 2007 Le Mans 24 hour race.
