The classic Aston Martin as “scrap” is worth 1.8 million pounds

The current classic Aston Martin has only bodywork and is inoperable. Even so, the starting auction price for the car is up to 1.8 million pounds

Specifically, the Aston Martin DB4GT code produced in 1960, is about to be auctioned on February 19, as an unfinished classic car restoration project.

In particular, the Bonhams auction house in London, estimates the car could be sold for a starting price of £ 1.8 million; if restored to normal rolling state, it could be worth up to £ 3 million.

The status quo of the car looks rather “scrap” with the chassis and engine, but cannot operate.

The car without doors, windows, headlights and most of the mechanical components fitted, was removed in 1983 and never rebuilt.

The Aston Martin DB4GT is a key model in the legacy of the British brand and is considered by many collectors to be the best postwar sports car ever built.

The model is equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.7-liter, 6-cylinder, double camshaft producing about 302 horsepower with a 4-speed manual transmission.

It became one of the first cars capable of accelerating from a stop to a speed of 100 km / h and then fully stopping in less than 20 seconds, which were respectable parameters in the 1960s. .

The first owner was Syd Green, owner of Gilby Engineering and also one of the founder of the Grand Prix.
