The DB4 GT Zagato: Aston Martin's new Dh30 million ride unveiled at Le Mans

June 15, 2019
The British car marque is showing off its most expensive new car ever during France's gruelling 24-hour race – but don't expect to see it on the track

You may have to save up for this one – Aston Martin's newest car in its Continuation series is being unveiled at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, ahead of its launch on the market, and it's a pricey little runaround.

If you want one in your garage, you'll have to part with £6 million plus taxes, which is around Dh30 million.

And that's if you can even get one, as Aston Martin is only making 19 of them.

The car won't be racing at Le Mans, but it'll be on display and probably attracting almost as much attention as the vehicles on the track.

The Zagato is part of the manufacturer's DBZ Centenary Collection, and this latest model is a rejig of the 1960s original.

It's faithful to its older sibling in almost every way and boasts a 4.7-litre, 390hp version of the earlier DB4 GT Continuation model, which was the manufacturer's first update of one of its classic models.

Why 19 of the Zagato? Well, that's the number Aston Martin made of the original.

Those lucky enough to get their hands on one can expect delivery later this year.
