The Aston Martin DB4 was available from 1958 until 1963. It was an entirely different car from the DB Mark III it replaced, though the 3.7 L engine was externally visually related to the 2.9 L unit found in that car.

The lightweight tube-frame body was designed by Carrozzeria Touring in Milan, and its Continental looks caused a sensation on its unveiling at the 1958 London Motor Show. Although the design and construction techniques were Italian, the DB4 was the first Aston to be built at the company's Newport Pagnell works in Buckinghamshire, England.

The DB4 GT was a special lightweight, high-performance version of the DB4. Introduced in September 1959, the GT's featured enclosed headlights and a thinner aluminum skin for lighter weight. The wheelbase was also reduced in comparison to the standard car, which resulted in many cars not being fitted with rear seats.

The unique engine made the GT special. Available in 3.7 L and 3.8 L versions, the GT's engine had twin spark plugs per cylinder with two distributors and three twin-choke Weber carburetors. Modifications to the cylinder head brought compression to 9:1 and power output was 302 hp. Maximum speed for the GT was 151 mph with a 6.1 second sprint to 60 mph.

Seventy five GT's were built with this body style. Nineteen more were modified by the Zagato works in Italy into DB4 GT Zagatos, with plain oval grilles and a smoothed out rear end. A single car was also styled by Bertone and dubbed the Bertone Jet.

 

 

This body kit requires advanced modeling skills and is intended for adult modellers. Some trimming and minor remedial work may be required.
