Most Valuable British Car?
1961 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato

This Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato could looks set to break a few records and become the most expensive British car when it goes under auction this July.

This “2 Vev” variant is not just one of the 19 examples ever made, but also one of the only three built in the ultra-light DP209 specification and one of the two campaigned by the Essex Racing Stable team as a quasi- works Aston Martin. If this is not enough to get you interested, it was also raced by legendary  Scottish race driver Jim Clark and raced at Le Mans and the Goodwood TT in the 1960s.

The car has been in a family ownership for nearly 50 years. It continued to take part in historic racing in the 1980s and 1990s, and completed a full Aston Martin factory restoration in the mid-1990s. The track-ready treasure will go under the hammer on Bonhams’ Goodwood Festival of Speed sale, taking place on 13 July. Bonhams does not include an estimate in its listing, but experts foresee it could achieve up to £15 million.
