A race-prepared Aston Martin DB4GT Coupe is set to be the star of the show next month as it goes under the hammer.
One of only 30 Left-hand drive models built by Aston Martin, this 1961 DB4GT Coupe is expected to fetch between 1.1 million – 1.4 million euros (About £1.15m) at Bonham's next auction in France.
Just one of many dazzling lots at the 'drive through' auction on 2 Feb at La Halle Freysinnet, the Aston Martin will attract interest both for its stunning looks and racing pedigree.
Chassis number '0412/L' was originally shipped to the US in January 1961 where it went through the hands of three owners before returning to the UK in 1994.
Upon arrival, it received a full restoration and engine displacement was upped to 4.2 litres. The current owner, a member of a noble European family, entered the DB4GT into the Tour Auto and the Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este in 2001.
A further refurbishment in 2004 involved extensive bodywork repairs, a full strip-down and respray and mechanical overhaul. The car was also fitted with a competition fuel tank, but comes with the original tank and front and rear bumpers.
It is also a regular at historic racing events such as the Goodwood Revival and the AMOC Championship race.
'O412/L' has an impeccable service record and will be sold with a copy of the factory build sheet, sundry restoration/service invoices and FIVA Identity Card.
